A media converter is a networking device that can convert communication protocols or Ethernet from one cable type to another. The device functions by converting from the copper CATx/UTP to fiber. These are usually used in pairs to insert the fiber segment within the copper networks to increase cabling distances. It thereby helps in enhancing the immunity to any electromagnetic interference. They can also help the LANs by converting the fiber modes and link speeds. These are ideal for long distances while protecting data transference from interference. In addition, such converters offer high speeds while helping users migrate to local networks without extra expenses.
