Using one media converter, a switch with a copper port can be connected to a switch with an existing fiber interface. Used in pairs, this media converter can extend distances between two twisted-pair switches or a switch and a server up to 2 km over multimode fiber or up to 80 km over single-mode fiber. The converters will automatically re-establish link when connected to two 10/100 auto-negotiating switches,
after the fault condition has been corrected.
