MC1000-SFP Media Converter
ZyXEL MC1000-SFP Media Converter 1000Mbit/s network media converter
The MC1000-SFP is an Ethernet media converter that converts media transmission between UTP Copper cablings and fiber SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) Transceivers. The MC1000-SFP copper-to-fiber module is available in 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet and 1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet types, allowing seamless integration between Fast/Gigabit Ethernet networks using unshielded twisted pair (UTP) copper cabling, and Gigabit fiber networks.
Long-haul Gigabit Ethernet
Depending on the distance between two sites, users can select and insert proper SFP Transceivers into the slots for different network environments: multi-mode SFP for short distance (up to 550m) or single-mode SFP for long distance (from 10km to 40km or 70km maximum). Regardless of the scale of deployment, the MC1000-SFP is the most cost-effective, flexible solution for mixed copper/fiber environments like LANs, campus networks or even Metropolitan Area Networks.
The Auto-negotiating Ethernet function empowers the Gigabit RJ-45 port on MC1000-SFP to negotiate transmission speed and mode with peer devices automatically; and the Auto-crossover Ethernet port can prevent circuit mismatch problems by auto-sensing MDI/MDIX configuration. With these intelligent functions, MC1000-SFP can be paired with a switch, a NIC (Network Interface Card) or a Gigabit Ethernet device via a UTP/STP cable easily.
With the Link Loss Forwarding mechanism activated, any detected broken link on the RJ-45 Ethernet port will force the fiber port to take over, and the fiber uplink port will stop transmitting then "turned off" as soon as the remote link is down. Transparent link status will be delivered by the Link Loss Forwarding mechanism to facilitate the troubleshooting process.
