Standard 1000Base SX installations do not allow network managers to extend distances beyond 220 meters (62.5µm MM) or 550 meters (50µm MM fiber). Traditional Fast Ethernet Multimode networks can achieve the distance of 2 km. Gigabit Extender "bridges" the distance gap between Gigabit and Fast Ethernet distance requirements. Transition Networks' Gigabit Ethernet extends Gigabit Ethernet over multimode fiber for up to 2 km on 62.5/125µm fiber. The converter offers an easy upgrade to Gigabit Ethernet over existing SX multimode fiber because it eliminates the distance limitation of 220 meters. Existing Fast Ethernet multimode backbones can easily upgrade to Gigabit without the costly recabling.
