M/GE-T Series

Mini Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter
1000Base-T to 1000Base-SX/LX

  • M-GE-T-Series-768x768
  • M-GE-T-SX-01
  • M-GE-T-SFP-01
  • M-GE-T-LX-01
  • M-GE-T-SX-01-LC

The M/GE-T Series is a Gigabit Ethernet stand-alone Mini media converter that provides cost effective media conversion between 1000Base-T ports and 1000Base-SX/LX ports. With its fixed configuration, deployments are just plug-and-play, and its small size makes it ideal for locations where space is limited. Operating at Layer 1, the physical layer, data is passed through the converter at line speed, making it ideal for applications where low latency is essential.
