VeEX™ announces miniature media converters. MC100/MC1000

VeEX announces two highly compact media converter accessories for the MX/TX Ethernet product series. The MC100 is a rate-switching 10/100 UTP copper to 100BASE-FX fiber media converter providing cost-effective connectivity from Ethernet testers to 100 Mbit/s legacy fiber based networks. The MC1000 is a miniature 1000BASE-T UTP copper to 1000BASE-X fiber Gigabit Ethernet media converter supporting connectivity from Gigabit switches to Ethernet test equipment, and other devices such as computers. Both media converters use Small Form Pluggable (SFP) Transceivers which support different fiber types, data rates and distances. The converters can be powered by an external 5 Volt AC power supply or directly from a USB port on the MX/TX Ethernet tester.

The accessories will be showcased at the Ethernet Expo show, November 2nd and 3rd at the Hilton, New York City, booth #214.
