Dual Media Converter

Cubro Dual Media Converter provides seamless integration of copper and fibre connections. It supports a wide variety of protocols, data rates and media types to create a more reliable and cost-effective network. Dual Media Converter supports SFP and SFP+ transceivers for flexibility.

This sophisticated device enables the implementation of an extremely wide range of optical/copper infrastructure solutions from media conversion and signal boosting to lambda conversion, Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) and Optical Add/Drop Multiplexing (OADM).

Main Features of Dual Media Converter

  • Enhanced Protocol Support – Ensures compatibility with an extensive range of protocols, data rates, and media types, bolstering network reliability and cost efficiency.
  • SFP and SFP+ Compatibility – Seamlessly integrates with SFP and SFP+ interfaces, offering flexibility and adaptability to diverse network setups.
  • Space-Efficient Design – Consolidates two independent media converters within a single chassis, optimizing rack space utilization without compromising performance.
  • Minimal Latency Does not introduce delay or jitter, ensuring seamless data transmission and responsiveness.
  • Transparent Pricing – No additional port licensing fees or software feature licensing.

Functions & Benefits of Dual Media Converter

  • Converts one media type into another media type, the most common use is optical to electrical.
  • Provides fibre-to-fibre conversion from multi-mode fibre to single mode fibre
  • Enables amplification of poor signals to work over longer distances, this is a useful option, especially in multimode fibre networks
  • Converts dual fibre to a BiDi system.
  • Converts from one CWDM/DWDM wavelength to another.
Media ConversionSelect the media by changing the SFP/SFP+. The unique design supports also CWDM / DWDM and BIDI SFP/SFP+.
