Plug & Play™ Gigabit Ethernet Media Conversion Module
The Plug & Play™ Universal Systems Media Converter Module (MCM) is a Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-SX) media conversion solution within a Plug & Play™ Universal Systems pre-terminated module, part of Corning Cable Systems' LANscape® Pretium™ Solution. Each Media Converter Module is configured with 12 modular RJ-45 ports on the front and two MTP® Connector ports on the back. Each port on the MCM converts a Gigabit Ethernet 1000BASE-T signal, transmitting over copper, to a 1000BASE-SX signal, transmitting over fiber.
Whether using two modules in the 1U housing (24-port capacity) or up to 8 modules in the 4U housing (96-port capacity), the MCM provides the highest-density media conversion solution available. Utilization of the Media Converter Modules allows you to reap all the benefits of installing a modular MTP® connector-based fiber cabling system, while at the same time leveraging your existing copper port-based electronics.
