IgniteNet™’s new Mixed Media Converter is an evolutionary advance in media conversion. At its core, the Mixed Media Convertor converts 100/1000Mbps copper Ethernet to 1000Mbps fiber allowing for Passive POE in on the Ethernet port, while providing a 12-56v DC power tap for accessory connectivity. The Mixed Media Convertor can also be directly connected to a DC power cable and provide Passive POE out on it’s Ethernet RJ45 port offering unparalleled flexibility.
The pluggable fiber optics port allows for flexible network configurations using SFP transceivers supplied by other manufacturers. The Mixed Media Convertor can accommodate any type of 1Gigbps miniGBIC (SFP) optical modules for easy migration from short-haul to long haul fiber connections by simply changing the optical module interface.
