Media converter 10/100/1000Base-T RJ45 to 1xSFP, external power adaptor


Fibrain FMU-APA12G-E, the 10/100/1000M media converter can help the user convert theirs 1000Base TX port to 1000Base FX port (using suitable SFP transceiver), extending the network transmitting distance up to 120km (FO transmission depends on SFP transceiver type). Although the 1000Base-T technology and the appearance of related adaptors reduced the construction cost of 1000M Ethernet, in the majority network, the copper wire still sets limit on network extending distance. When the 1000M network copper wire transmitting distance needs to be extended FMU-APA12G-E media converter will provide an economy highly effective solution for the user.

This standalone media converter can be installed on the standard 19’’2U rack with 16 slots, which will be convenient for concentration and being powered.
