The application of fiber media converter in LAN/MAN
Posted on Jul 10, 2017 by cozlink.com
Fiber media converters play an important role in local area networks (MANs) and metropolitan area networks (MANs) that have multiple protocols and transport media. The role of fiber media converters is to connect fiber-optic cabling and active power integrating into existing copper cabling systems without additional cost. The function of the fiber media converter is to achieve photoelectric conversion, which is conducive to network service providers at a faster speed, lower cost of network services will be delivered to the end user.Local area network (LAN) / metropolitan area network (MAN) in the fiber media convertersInitially, fiber media converters had and had only one function: to convert fiber media into copper wire access. Now, with the development of technology, fiber media converters have a variety of categories, and the function is no longer so simple, for example, now on the market common fiber media converters have fiber to RJ45 Transceiver, SFP Ethernet transceiver, OEO tra..
DefinitionA fiber media converter is a simple networking device that makes it possible to connect two dissimilar media types such as twisted pair with fiber optic cabling. They were introduced to the industry in the 1990s, and are important in interconnecting fiber optic cabling-based systems with existing copper-based, structured cabling systems. They are also used in metropolitan area network (MAN) access and data transport services to enterprise customers. Fiber media converters support many different data communication protocols including Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, T1/E1/J1, DS3/E3, as well as multiple cabling types such as coax, twisted pair, multi-mode and single-mode fiber optics. Media converter types range from small standalone devices and PC card converters to high port-density chassis systems that offer many advanced features for network management.ApplicationsOn some devices, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) enables proactive management of link..
Now there are no less than hundreds of brands and manufacturers of various fiber media converters in the market, so how to choose? In order to enable you to pick a good product, some of the procurement points are listed as follows: (1) See whether it can support the full-duplex and half-duplex because in the market some chips can only use the full-duplex environment but cannot support the half-duplex one. If connected to the switches of other brands (N-Way Switch) or concentrator (HUB), which in turn uses half-duplex mode, it will cause serious collision and packet loss. (2) See whether it is connected with other fiber optic connectors for the connection test. In the market, there is more and more fiber media converter s. If the compatibility of different brands’ converters has not done the test, it will also produce packet loss, too long transmission time, suddenly slow and quick phenomenon.(3) See whether it has security devices to prevent packet loss, because of many manuf..
Can you really distinguish optical module and fiber media converter？
Posted on Jul 04, 2017 by cozlink.com
In the field of optical communications, there are many devices with similar functions. For example, optical modules and fiber media converter are equipment for photoelectric conversion, and sometimes they have different names. Optical module is also known as optoelectronic module while fiber media converter is called photoelectric converter. Can you distinguish the differences between them?Definition and function of fiber media converterFiber media converter is the equipment that makes conversion between short-distance electrical signals and long-distance optical signal, generally used in long-distance transmission. It transmits through the fiber, and converts the electrical signal into optical signals, at the same time, and converts the received optical signal into electrical signals. Fiber media converter is a cost-effective solution, which can complete network upgrade without a lot of manpower, material and time. The role of optical moduleThe role of the optical module is also ..
