10G Copper to 10GBASE-X SFP+ Media Converter

Pro-optics-LINK 10G Media Converter is equipped with one 10G1G/100BASE-T auto-negotiation port and one 10GBASE-X SFP+ slot. It supports 10Gigabit Ethernet media conversion from copper 10GBASE-T to fiber multi-mode or single-mode, utilizing 10GBASE-SR or 10GBASE-LR SFP+ transceiver installed in the SFP+ slot to extend distances to servers, switches and patch panels. The deployment distance can be extended from 300 meters (multi-mode) to up to 60 kilometers (single-mode).They are designed for use in network environments where the ultra-high bandwidth provided by 10Gigabit Ethernet is required, for example, data center cloud computing, enterprise backbones, campus networks, and carrier infrastructure.

High Performance 10Gbps Ethernet Capacity

The Pro-optics-SFP0101TG offers wire-speed packets transfer performance without the risk of packet loss. The high data throughput of the device makes it ideal for most Gigabit environments. With a 20Gbps internal fabric,16K jumbo frame feature and auto negotiation support in its 10 Gigabit port, the Pro-optics-SFP0101TG  can handle extremely large amounts of data transmission in a secure topology linking to data center cloud computing, enterprise backbones, campus networks, and carrier infrastructure.

Robust Protection

The Pro-optics-SFP0101TG provides contact discharge of ±6KV DC and air discharge of ±8KV DC for Ethernet ESD protection. It also supports ±4KV surge immunity to improve product stability and protects users’ networks from devastating ESD attacks, making sure the flow of operation does not fluctuate.


Low Power Consumption

The Pro-optics-SFP0101TG adopting the advanced chip technology has the power-saving feature like a low power consumption of only 3.75 watts when in full operation.


Easy Chassis Installation

The Pro-optics-SFP0101TG  Media Converter can be used as a stand-alone unit or as a slide-in module to the Pro-optics-LINK  Media Converter Chassis (Pro-optics-MC-R16 chassis series). The media chassis can assist in providing DC power to the Pro-optics-SFP0101TG  Media Converter to maintain the fiber-optic network at one centralized location.
