The Model OTEN-131 EtherNodePlus is a compact, cost-effective, standalone copper-to-single-mode optical fiber unmanaged media converter designed around the very latest Ethernet transceiver technology. It reliably transports full duplex 10/100 BaseT Ethernet from 0 to 40km on a single strand of fiber utilizing only one optical wavelength (1310nm). Fast Ethernet is one of the best choices for building LANs and WANs because of its high performance-to-cost ratio. However, since the copper based unshielded twister pair (i.e., CAT5 UTP) transfer distance is typically less than 100 meters, this fiber-based media converter converts 10/100 TX (RJ-45) to 100FX (SC/APC) and can extend link transfer distance to over 40km. The unit is ideally suited for direct fiber transmission of IP “Triple Play” data, voice and/or video Ethernet-based signals in FTTH, FTTP, PON, MDU, industrial, corporate, government, educational, I-Net or other applications where a high performance, compact media converter is required. It is easy to install and does not require software configuration or management, and can be deployed almost anywhere due to its small physical size.
