10/100/1000 to SFP Media Converter



D-Link’s DMC-G01LC standalone media Converter turns a copper Ethernet link into a fiber link, allowing for an ultra-fast, long distance connection. Installation of a standalone media converter is simple, and allows you to tap into fiber speeds with ease. Instead of requiring an investment in an entire chassis, a standalone media converter provides the same high-quality conversion on a unit-by-unit basis. You can save space and cut costs while still extending your network over long distances of 10 km and beyond on a fiber optic line.

SFP Optical Transceivers for Maximum Flexibility
The fiber side of the DMC-G01LC utilizes a 100/1000 SFP port for maximum flexibility. Using the appropriate SFP transceiver (purchased separately) it can support either multimode or single-mode fiber, varying wavelengths, and speeds of either 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps.

10/100/1000 Copper Speeds
The copper side of the DMC-G01LC auto-negotiates to 10Mbps, 100Mbps or 1000Mbps, ensuring the connection functions at the highest possible speed while remaining compatible with the link partner. It supports auto MDI/MDIX, half/full duplex operation at 10/100 Mbps and full duplex operation at 1000 Mbps.

Plug & Play
The DMC-G01LC supports standard technologies that makes it easy to operate, like 802.3u. 802.3x and 802.3ab. There’s no management software to configure – simply connect the power, connect the cables, and start converting.
