1000BASE-T to Mini-GBIC Conversion
WideBand Professional Media Converters are an effective way to connect Gigabit copper and fiber networks. These rack mountable devices are available in two, four, and six conversion port models. Each conversion port includes a 1000BASE-T port for Category 5 and a Mini-GBIC slot for a fiber module. Since each conversion port is independent of the others, each can be connected to any copper gigabit switch where a fiber connection is needed. The fiber slots can be populated with any combination of 1000BASE-SX multimode or 1000BASE-LX single mode Small Form Pluggable (SFP) Mini-GBIC modules.

Flexible Gigabit Network Extenders
The standard Mini-GBIC slots on the Professional Media Converter mean a wide variety of low-cost and long-range fiber transceiver options are available. It also means that upgrades are as simple as replacing a Mini-GBIC.
Bidirectional Wire-speed Transmission
WideBand Professional Media Converters run full duplex at wire-speed allowing them to make the copper/fiber transition without slowing the network.
Fiber Connectivity Only Where Needed
Using all-gigabit-copper switches with the Professional Media Converters helps avoid the extra cost of unneeded fiber ports. The Media Converters can be shared throughout the rack so that fiber can be deployed wherever it is needed by simply patching over to it.
Designed and Manufactured in the USA
WideBand Professional Series switches are designed and manufactured in the United States by WideBand Corporation. This allows a uniquely high level of quality control that shows in the dependability of the products.
