Fiber to fiber media converter may be the converter accustomed to conduct the transparent conversion between your media of single mode fiber and multimode fiber. Unlike the Fiber to Ethernet Media Converter, it is utilized in the applications where media conversion is needed between multimode segments separated by long distances. For example, it enables the extension of multimode to single mode or multimode to multimode fiber connections to distances as much as 160km.
You will find mainly three benefits using fiber to fiber converters.
First, they can convert Fast Ethernet or Gigabit multimode fiber to multimode or single mode fiber.
Second, they can protect an investment in existing multimode fiber based hardware.
Third, they can connect different fiber types, distances and wavelengths across a variety of topologies and network architectures.
Generally, the multimode transmission supports 550m and 2km distances. And also the single mode version has much longer transfer distances including 20km, 40km, 60km, 80km, 100km and 120km.
The fiber to fiber media converters those suited for enterprise and Service Provider applications best, can offer an on-board processor to continuously monitor that both fiber connections are up. This functionality (generally referred to as LPT, short for Link Pass-Through) monitors the state of the hyperlink to the end devices and helps to ensure that each end-point knows if the entire link is up or otherwise. Some media converter products don’t have this intelligence and simply nail in the link even though the fiber link peer is down. Using the LPT, an element available in all of our fiber to fiber converters, the network’s SNMP management system can be alerted when a fault occurs so that corrective action can happen.
The most typical type of fiber to fiber converter is definitely an unmanaged standalone device with its own power adapter. Where large densities of media converters are needed, chassis-based systems can also be found. These rack mountable units can house as much as 19 managed or unmanaged media converter modules providing redundant power for AC and 48v DC environments.
