Chicago, Ill.Stratos Optical Technologies is offering a dual-channel media product that converts T1 data rates to fiber optic cable.
According to Stratos, the Dual T1 media converter is the first product that can be integrated into the backshell of an HMA Expanded Beam bulkhead connector. The Stratos Dual T1 media converter is currently in use by certain elements of the U.S. armed forces.
The Stratos Dual T1 media converter combines RJ45 interconnected T1 data with fiber optic HMA Expanded Beam technology, providing dual 1.544 Mbits/s data-rate media conversion from copper to fiber and back for tactical communication applications.
The compact converter eliminates the need for a separate fiber modem. By enabling the use of fiber optic transport, the Dual T1 media converter also protects against electromagnetic interference and signal detection, common drawbacks of copper-based cable.
