Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter (1000Base-T to 1000Base-X)


This Gigabit Media converter supports one channel media conversion between 1000Base-T and 1000Base-LX through SC type interface. GM01/GS01 , this empowers the installers the flexibility in fiber-optic networking. To centralize the fiber-optic network installation, the Media Converter can be used as standalone units or as a slide-in module to the PLANET intelligent Media Converter Chassis

As Media Converter fully complies with IEEE802.3ab 1000Base-T and IEEE802.3z 1000Base-LX, using the Gigabit media conversion is quite quick and easy by simply plug and play.
