The networking device that makes it possible to connect two dissimilar media types at the same time.

When it comes to setting up any network and particularly a fibre network, you need to account for different media types and how to connect them. In this week’s edition, we look at the PLANET Gigabit Media Converter – GT-805A networking device. This networking device makes it possible to connect two dissimilar media types such as a twisted pair with fibre optic cabling. It also provides non-blocking wire-speed performance and great flexibility for a Gigabit Ethernet extension in harsh industrial environments.
