Media converter

Unanswered Question
Oct 8th, 2007

Hi, Not very sure which is the right place to put my query.

My customer has a switch with all GE(Fiber) interface and the switch I have is with UTP(10/100)interface. Can I use a fiber to UTP converter to connect the customer to my switch. I am not sure but will single converter inbetween will work as I heard that for converters to work you need to have them in pair which is not possible in my scenario.

I have this problem too.

You can use a converter even when not in pairs, but the the switch port must be GE and so the converter.

Nowadays switches with SFP and GE SFP are not expensive when bought "smartly". This is what I suggest you do.
