|Fiber-to-Ethernet Media Converters Ideal for Industrial Networks Requiring Long Distance, High Bandwidth Connectivity|
Antaira Technologies has introduced its IMP-C1000-SFP-bt-T and IMP-C1000-SFP-bt-24-T Gigabit single-port media converters with IEEE 802.3bt 90W PoE++. Both converters give network administrators the means to interconnect long-distance fiber networks to copper-based 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet with minimum cost and complexity.
Both converters serve as Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) capable of delivering an impressive 90W to PoE-complaint devices, therefore enabling the converters to accommodate power-hungry PTZ IP cameras and WAPs. Importantly, both converters extend LAN cabling distances using SFPs selectable to meet application requirements for the fiber network.
