"With smart technologies incorporated into the media converters, Malaysian organisations moving towards digital transformation can be assured of simpler restoration, quick fault finding and maximum uptime when faced with network downtime due to security breach or power outages," said Choy.
He said that a products were available in SC, ST and LC optics, the DMC Series media converters required no extra power cord as they were capable of being powered from the laptop/computer's USB interface, or optionally by connecting the USB cable to a traditional wall-socket connector.
The devices are "purpose-built for fibre-enabling desktops, printers and IP phones, the Allied Telesis DMC Series of mini media converters are among the smallest media converters on the market today. At just 1.25 inches wide × 3.6 inches deep × 0.85 inches high, these media converters can easily fit into the palm of one's hand".
Key features include:
-Smart Link Restoration
