· Extend LAN Distance with Fibre
Copper-based Ethernet connections are limited to a data transmission distance of 100 metres when using UTP cable. By using Ethernet to fibre conversion, you can extend link distance up to 80 kilometres or more.
· Maintain Investments in Existing Equipment
Media converters enable you to migrate a local network to fibre while protecting your investment in existing copper-based hardware. This means no costly, time-consuming overhaul to your infrastructure.
· Protect Data from Interference
Electromagnetic interference, or EMI, can cause corruption of data over copper-based Ethernet links. Data transmitted over fibre optic cable is completely immune to this type of noise, ensuring optimal data transmission and network performance.
· Speed Conversion
Media converters allow you to convert link speeds from 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps or from 100 Mbps to 1000 Mbps.
· Power over Ethernet
Power over Ethernet, or PoE, simplifies installation of Wi-Fi access point, IP cameras and more by eliminating the need for a local AC power circuit.
