Multimode to single mode converter diagram

Fiber-to-fiber media converters are compact devices that provide seamless integration of different fiber types by converting multimode fiber to single-mode fiber, and dual fiber to single-fiber. Fiber-to-Fiber media converters extend network distance by converting wavelengths (1310 to 1550), amplifying optical power, and can support the “Three Rs” to Retime, Regenerate and Reshape the optical signal.

Transponders are fiber-to-fiber media converters that convert wavelengths for Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) applications.Transponders are protocol and rate-transparent fiber media converters that support SFP, SFP+ and XFP transceivers with data rates up to 11.32 Gbps.
