Applications of Ethernet to Fiber Media Converter

The copper-based Ethernet network has limited data transmission distance of 100 meters when using unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable. Besides, this network link is very likely to be influenced by EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) which can cause the network corruption. So how to solve these two troubles? Now this tutorial will introduce Ethernet to fiber media […]
