1000Base-T, SFP Standalone Media Converter
Allied Telesis 1000Base-T, SFP Standalone Media Converter 1000Mbit/s network media converter
The MC1008 series Ethernet media converters are designed to extend the distance of your network by interconnecting LAN devices that are physically separated by large distances. These media converters have the functionality to connect any managed/unmanaged 1000Mbps (1Gbps) switch or hub using standard 1000T RJ45 connections and convert the signal to 1000Base optical via SFP port. The pluggable optics feature allows for flexible network configurations of reach whilst reducing the number of products for sparing and inventory.
For the AT-MC1008/SP, the fibre optic port has an SFP slot and a maximum operating distance dependent on the SFP.
Although the provisioning of Gigabit Ethernet connections is becoming relatively inexpensive, thanks in part to the availability of lower-cost copper Gigabit network adapters, the distance limitations of copper cabling make fibre segments a necessity in most networks. Small,
comparatively inexpensive copper to fibre Gigabit Ethernet media converters present a simple and very cost-effective way of
connecting Gigabit Ethernet LANs over extended distances.
Standalone or Rackmounted
Each small media converter is powered by an external power supply unit for use in standalone applications. Where multiple media converters are used, up to 12 standalone devices can be inserted into a low-cost
AT-MCR12 rackmount chassis, allowing all the converters to be powered by a single internal power supply. In critical applications, a second
load sharing internal power supply can be installed into the rackmount chassis.
Hassle Free Support
All Allied Telesyn Ethernet media converters have a limited lifetime warranty and free technical support, ensuring trouble-free installation.
