Satisfying today’s networking needs while preparing for tomorrow’s cabling requirements can make designing and installing the physical layer of networks a daunting task. The decreasing cost of fibre optic cabling and switching equipment makes all-optical LANs the obvious choice when future-proofing network equipment. Replacing legacy equipment and wiring infrastructure is a costly choice. Managed media conversion allows implementation of new technologies on existing networks, while monitoring all connections, to keep networks running and up-to-date.

This is an SNMP-managed Ethernet copper to fibre media converter that includes troubleshooting features and LEDs to assist in network diagnostics as well as make isolating cable breaks easier. This iMcV-MediaLinX converter also features Link Fault Pass-Through with an RJ-45 copper port and an SC fibre port.
