Olson Technology Inc. MEDIA CONV. 10/100 STANDALONE, 1 Fiber 40+km, SM @ 1310mm, SC/APC> Requires OTEN-PS-5V-1 Power Supply
Fast Ethernet is the best choice in building LAN and WAN topologies with its high performance/price ratio. But UTP transfer distance is below 100 meters, longer distance transmission requires optical fiber, so the media converter is the bridge between electric and optical signal transfer.
OTEN series optical fiber media converters include desktop series and standard 19” rack series units. Both units are fully compliant with IEEE 802.3 and IEEE 802.3u standards. The fiber port uses an SC connector and the UTP port uses a standard RJ-45 connector. Both units can work in full or half duplex mode automatically and 10Base-T or 100Base-T automatically. Single wavelength BiDi media converters can transfer a signal in two directions with only one wavelength and one fiber, thus saving fiber and wavelength resources.
