This modular media converter for the High-Density Media Converter System II converts the incoming electrical signal from one cable type and then transmits it over another type. Bridging the gap between two different Ethernet types, the media converter is totally transparent to network operation, having no effect on the data being sent across the link. What's more, the module is hot-swappable - you never need to power down a chassis to change a module.

The High-Density Media Converter System II 1000BASE-TX to 1000BASE-LX Duplex Layer 1 Module featured here is ideal for establishing longer Gigabit runs across your campus and beyond.

The module also has a LinkLoss feature, which notifies you of "silent failures" on copper-to-fiber links. LinkLoss enables you to troubleshoot network problems just by looking at the media converter's link LED - the link status of the fiber segment will always be reflected by the twisted-pair segment so you're informed quickly of fiber problems.

Additionally, the module features Link Fault Pass Through (LFPT), which is a troubleshooting feature that combines TX and FX LinkLoss from the local and remote devices. With LFPT enabled, when a link fault is sensed, it will pass through the device at each segment. In this way, both switches are alerted to a fault in the line, and they will send out traps. The SNMP server receives the traps and takes appropriate action to remedy the situation.
