USD Call for Quote


GAOTek 10/100/1000 Base-TX to 1000 Base-FX Media Converter supports two types of media for network connection such as 10/100/1000 Base-T to 1000 Base SX/LX and connects these two types of segments to operate smoothly. This gigabit fiber media converter transforms 1000 Base-T (copper gigabit) media to 1000 Base-SX/LX (fiber gigabit) media and vice versa. It can be used in 16 slot chassis as plug in module. The 1000Base-T port supports full-duplex Gigabit connection at wire speed with RJ45 connector and the fiber Gigabit connection supports shortwave (SX) or long wave (LX) laser optic with multi-mode or single-mode SC type connector. It gives the Copper Gigabit connection the ability to interface with fiber connection over a distance of up to 49.70 mi (80 km).

Key Features:

  • Complies with IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3u, IEEE802.3z, IEEE802.3ab, IEEE 802.3x auto-negotiation
  • Works at 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps, full or half-duplex mode, or 1000 Mbps full-duplex mode
  • Extends distances ranging from 0.34 mi (550 m) (multi-mode fiber) to 74.56 mi (120 km) (single-mode fiber)
  • Supports auto MDI/MDIX function
  • Status LED for easy monitoring of device status
  • Supports jumbo frame size 9K bytes
  • External power supply
  • Supports independent LFP function
