Wirewerks Gigabit Ethernet media converters provide an easy and economical solution to upgrade a copper based network to fiber optic to extend the signal reach, or to bridge copper and optical fiber cabling by converting an electrical signal to an optical signal. Their plug-and-play design enables a quick and easy installation.

Wirewerks media converters can be used as standalone with their external power supply, or mounted in Wirewerks media converter chassis with centralized power supply.
