Will an IP Phone work with a Signamax Media Converter 065-1100??

We have a small office a block away from our main office which is connected via Signamax Media Converters (Model 065-1100) 10/100 Base T/TX to 100 Base Fx Converter-ST. At the main office a CAT 5 cable connects one end of the media converter to the patch panel in our server room which is connected to a switch. The other end of the media converter has fiber which runs to the media converter at the small office a block away. The other end of the media converter at the small office is connected to a Netgear switch via a CAT5 cable. We hope to install a Cisco 3550 or other IP phone capable switch at the remote office in place of the Netgear switch. Will this work with our existing setup or will we need to remove the media converters from the setup and run fiber direct from a switch in the server room in the main office to the switch at the small office?

If your switches are capable of GigE, I'd pull the 100FX converters out and fiber connect at GigE.
