Perle Systems introduces Ethernet to Fiber media converters
March 10, 2010 - Perle announces Ethernet to Fiber Media Converters, enabling customers to add the benefits of fiber to their UTP copper-based network.

Copper-based Ethernet connections are limited to a data transmission distance of only 100 meters when using unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable. By using an Ethernet to fiber converter, fiber optic cabling can be used to extend this link up to 80Km.

An Ethernet to Fiber Media Converter can also be used where there is high level of electromagnetic interference (EMI). This is a common phenomenon found in industrial plants. EMI can cause corruption of data over copper-based Ethernet links. Data transmitted over fiber optic cable, however, is completely immune to this type of noise. An Ethernet to Fiber Converter therefore enables companies to inter-connect copper-Ethernet devices over fiber ensuring optimal data transmission across the plant floor.

Using Media Converters, facilities can be connected over public or privately owned fiber optic cable up to 80 km away and they don’t need to reinvest in new fiber base switches, routers and firewalls – which are generally 3 times more expensive than their copper based counterparts.

Perle’s initial offering includes an extensive choice of full-featured Ethernet to Fiber Media Converter solutions. Using only high-end components Perle guarantees, with a Lifetime Warranty, user satisfaction. And, all Perle Media converters have an on-board microcontroller which deals with error detection and recovery.
