Media Converters and Transponders
iConverter media converters provide seamless integration of copper and fiber and different fiber types. iConverter media converter modules support a wide variety of protocols, data rates and media types to create a reliable and cost-effective network. iConverter media converters support pluggable transceivers for flexible connectivity solutions for standard and CWDM wavelengths.
iConverter Copper-to-Fiber Media Converters
iConverter Fiber-to-Fiber Media Converters
iConverter CWDM Multiplexers/Demultiplexers and Add/Drop Multiplexers increase the bandwidth capacity of existing single-fiber or dual fiber infrastructure by multiplexing up to sixteen independent wavelengths over a fiber optic connection. The modular iConverter CWDM MUX products utilize a small and scalable plug-in form factor and can be installed in any iConverter chassis, achieving some of the highest port densities in the industry.
