GAOTek 10 Base-T to 10 Base-FL Ethernet Media Converter




The GAOTek 10 Base-T to 10 Base-FL Ethernet Media Converter is specially designed to be used in remote locations using multi-mode and single-mode fiber to deliver solid network performance and scalability. It allows the repeaterless connection of twisted pair cables (10 Base-T) and optical fiber (10 Base-FL) in an Ethernet network by supporting a maximum fiber optic cable distance of 75 mi (120 km). Additionally, it provides high resolution LED’s to monitor the networks. This media converter is compatible with IEEE 802.3 standards.


  • Auto-MDI/MDIX
  • Complies with 802.3 10 Base-T and 10 Base-FL standards
  • Provides media conversion from UTP to Fiber Optic media types
  • Extends network span to 1.24 mi (2 km) (multimode fiber)
  • Interoperable with other 10 Base media converters, 10 Base, 10 Base-T NICs, hubs or switches
  • Provides LEDs for easy network monitoring
  • Supports a variety of fiber optic connectors including ST, SC, and FC
