Media/Mode Converter/Switch, 10/100/1000BaseTX to 1000BaseFX,
4 UTP Ports, 2 SFP Fiber Ports

The ME-3860-MM3-SFPx2 media converter transfers data over duplex fiber at up to 1000Mbps and connects to copper Ethernet at 10, 100 or 1000 Mbps while auto-sensing the correct speed. Maximum distance for this unit depends upon the SFP module used. Distance on the Ethernet side is 100 meters (328 feet) using Cat-5 or better (unshielded or shielded twisted pair) copper cable. The copper Ethernet connection is RJ-45.

This unit does not include an SFP module. SFP modules are available here.

This unit has four RJ ports for copper Ethernet connections and two ports that accept SFP mini-GBIC modules. This allows the unit to act as a small Ethernet switch as well as a media converter or a mode converter. An example of this use would be to run a longer fiber link from your server/router to another office location, and then you are able to connect the media converter to four local computers. Another fiber line may extend from this office to another building at the same, or different, fiber mode (singlemode/multimode/CWDM) or wavelength (850/1300/1310/1550nm).
