10/100 to 100FX Single Fiber WDM Media Converters

The Signamax 10/100 to 100FX Single Fiber Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) Media Converters allow data normally carried over two strands of fiber optic cable to be carried over a single strand of fiber optic cable, utilizing two different light spectra to carry signals in both directions simultaneously. This technology doubles the capacity of a company’s fiber optic network, allowing a carrier or an enterprise business to minimize its operational costs by eliminating or delaying the deployment of additional fiber optic capacity.

These converters are available in singlemode and multimode models, and span distances of up to 40 kilometers (24.85 miles).  WDM Switching Media Converters must be used in A/B pairs, and all converters in this series are equipped with Link Fault Signaling to provide the means for an SNMP managed switch to recognize a failure on a fiber channel or twisted-pair connection, enabling the switch to automatically route to a backup path when the connected switch is equipped with Spanning Tree Algorithm.
