The Thor Fiber F-GET-TR-SM media converters were specifically designed to offer network designers the tools for migration from copper based Gigabit to fiber based Gigabit Ethernet. Now, migration or expansion of existing networks can be possible with minimum cost and complexity. These Thor Gigabit converters are completely transparent when installed so your network performs exactly the way it was previously, but now it can migrate both copper and fiber mediums. This flexibility in cabling allows network managers to put fiber cables anywhere within a network without changing the arrangement of copper based Gigabit segments. Their compact size allows the converters to be easily installed in any narrow desktop location or used in a wall-mount format to save space. Several converters can be simultaneously installed by using the F-CHAS 12-slot 19" rack-mount chassis. The F-GET-TR-SM takes advantage of Gigabit Ethernet technology, suitable for transmission applications of larger bandwidth like Video, Image, and Voice over IP.
