The Advantage Of Media Converters

Published by DMSI on

Media converters are a beneficial tool to have when assessing today’s networks. In the past (and somewhat still in the present), copper cabling was a dominant force in the technology field. At its core, a media converter is used to connect two devices that are not entirely relatable. The reason this type of product is important is due to the unique function it gives us. With a media converter, you have the ability to fiber systems with copper-based setups. This increases the overall functionality and usability of other products.

The Process Of Speed

With any product, the hope is that it will help you accomplish your tasks in the fastest manner possible. A fiber-based media converter can help you achieve that type of goal due to its versatility. By reducing any potential interference and increasing the distance, it can theoretically support an above-average network speed. Not only do they take in a greater amount of speed, but media converters can give you more flexibility.


When you employ this device, one of the things you’ll notice is how it expands the reach of the network. Because a media converter is essentially two transceivers passing data back and forth to each other, it gives you stronger access and a smaller chance of losing any connection. The reason for this is due to how local area networks are brought together. When the reach of local area networks expands, it gives way to multiple LANs forming what is a conglomerate of a network.

Cost Effective

The beauty of media converters is that they can also save you money. One of the primary perks of fiber technology is that it can withstand high bandwidth features, like a streaming application. A media converter saves you money in terms of making the fiber-to-desktop process easy.
