Unmanaged Ethernet Media Converters
Media converters make the critical connection between different types of cabling media, extending transmission distances well beyond the capabilities of twisted pair wiring, and ensuring seamless integration of new fiber-based equipment in legacy networks.
Media converters typically operate on the physical layer (OSI Layer 1) to simply provide an electrical-to-optical conversion, bridging the gap between copper and fiber optic cabling. IMC Networks' media conversion solutions are available in several form-factors and configurations, from low-cost standalone units to high-density rack-mountable modular chassis.

Standalone Media Converters
The rugged McBasic copper-to-fiber media converters support all Ethernet protocols, making them ideal for all types of conversions and network extensions inside or outside the LAN. The McBasic series includes various cabling troubleshooting features such as LinkLoss and FiberAlert, plus an internal power supply.
Multi-Port Media Converters
The AccessConverter series provides flexible access to fiber in premises LAN and residential networking applications, lowering costs up to 66%. While typical media converters feature one conversion between twisted pair and fiber optics, AccessConverter/3 provides a speed and media conversion for three 10/100 Ethernet devices, such as PCs, printers or VoIP phones.
Modular Media Converters
MediaConverter series chassis system provides a cost-effective solution to extending the life of legacy wiring infrastructures. The MediaConverter series includes modules that install in 1-, 4-, 8- and 12-slot chassis and are available for converting between thin coax, copper and fiber cabling, as well as between multi-mode and single-mode fiber.
PoE and PoE+ Media Converters
IMC Networks’ line of Power over Ethernet media converters perform fiber-to-UTP conversion and deliver both data and 15.4 Watts of power over CAT5 to power devices such as WiFi access points, VoIP phones and IP security cameras. Products available range from Powered Devices (PD) to Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) and are compatible with all IEEE 802.3af compliant devices.Power over Ethernet+ media converters support the IEEE 802.3at standard, delivering 25.5 Watts of power to equipment such as touch panels, PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) IP surveillance cameras and WiMAX access points.
PC Card Media Converters
Internal McPC card style converters are ideal for Fiber-to-the-Desktop applications and for companies with rapidly changing needs such as adding new employees and changing workstation locations. McPC simply installs inside the PC; no need to replace existing NICs, no IRQ utilization needed and no additional configuration required.
IMC Networks also offers a full line of managed media converters.
