Media Converters & Device Servers
The leader in media conversion technologies for over 30 years, Lantronix offers a complete line of products enabling you to evolve any network – in any application – in any environment. We provide managed, secure, and flexible solutions to integrate Ethernet and TDM over fiber, taking advantage of the bandwidth, distance and security of a fiber infrastructure without a complete network overhaul. We also provide versatile options to extend Ethernet and provide power over your existing cabling infrastructure, regardless of the cable type, speeding up time to service, reducing the cost of re-cabling, and eliminating the need for adding new cabling to provide power to network edge devices.
Our complete systems, including the ION Multi-Service Integration Platform, bring chassis-based simplicity for integrating multiple services in your network. The ION Platform is supported by a full range of compact stand-alone media converter devices including, our mini media converter – one of the smallest form factor remote systems anywhere. In addition to media conversion, select stand-alone devices also provide Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) delivery and extension of data and power to the remote networking equipment.
Lantronix’ Stand-Alone Media Converters are ideal for facilitating the conversion of different cable types. Our converters support a variety of protocols including 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, DS1, DS3, and more. Multiple types of conversion are available with our stand-alone converters including: fiber to fiber, copper to fiber, and copper to copper. Also, management of these converters is also available when paired with the matching chassis-based slide-in card in our ION Chassis with ION Management Module. With this management, our ION Multi-Service Integration Platform provides a total media conversion platform to work best in your network. Check out our Stand-Alone Media Converters below.
Miniature (mini) media converters facilitate this cabling need with a simple conversion device that makes the connection between copper and fiber cabling. Beyond simplicity, mini media converters can be discreetly installed in areas where a small footprint is desired for space or aesthetic reasons. Mini media converters install easily and come with features that allow fast network turn up, including auto-negotiation, auto-MDI/MDIX, and active link pass through. In addition, these media converters feature automatic link restoration for fast network restoration. Overall, they are simple to install, requiring no special configuration or setting of dip-switches — just plug it in and walk away.
Lantronix’ Mini Media Converters are the ideal simple conversion solution. Our converters are available in enterprise and hardened temperature grades to provide the most flexibility in a small footprint. With our mini media converters, you can just set it and forget it.
Chassis-based media converters can provide high-density conversion in these areas with the flexibility needed to mix and match cable and network types. These media converters combine a chassis with slide-in media converter cards to provide the connectivity. Chassis provide redundant power to ensure ongoing operation in the event of a power supply failure. SNMP management and feature control can be provided via a management module in the chassis. Chassis’ come in a variety of sizes ranging from 1 – 19 slots.
Lantronix’ Chassis provide the ideal conversion solution for both low-density and high-density network requirements. Our chassis are available in a variety of sizes including, 1-slot, 2-slot, 6-slot, and 19-slot. Our chassis also support high speed management through the backplane to separate management data from network traffic to maintain security. The ION Multi-Service Integration Platform fully supports our chassis as well as our chassis-based slide-in cards and stand-alone converters to provide the most flexible solution for your network.
Lantronix’s Device Servers reimagine network performance and protection with rapid and mission-critical device connectivity for instant remote access. Paired with industry-standard management tools and simple device configurations, the device servers, including serial to Ethernet modules and serial medical converters, provide state-of-the-art management and remote access for all medical and industrial networks.
Lantronix’ Slide-in Media Converter Cards are the ideal high-density conversion solution. Our converters are available in a variety of protocols including: 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, DS3, DS1, and more. We also provide flexibility through different types of conversion, including fiber to fiber, copper to fiber, and copper to copper conversion. Our ION Multi-Service Integration Platform encompasses our high-density conversion solution providing your network with the most high-performance flexibility available.
