CTS Introduces the Smallest 10G NBASE-T to 10GBASE-R Media Converter Ideal for FTTX Deployments

Connection Technology Systems Inc. (CTS) is proud to announce the release of our MCT-5002SFP+, a 10G high-speed Ethernet media converter with IEEE 802.3bz 10G Nbase-T 5-speed (100M/1G/2.5G/5G/10G) Ethernet supported, which can be compatible with the existing 1G and emerging 2.5G/5G/10G network environment.

MCT-5002SFP+ supports one 10GBase-R SFP+ optical interface, and it provides flexible options for 10GBase-SR10GBase-LR10GBase-BR or 10G DAC (Direct Attached Cable) SFP+ transceiver.

Owing to the compatibility with the transmission speed of the conversion, MCT-5002SFP+ is the best solution for upgrading your existing networking infrastructure through a wide range of 5-speed (100M/1G/2.5G/5G/10G) options.

A. 1G Media Converter Connects 802.11n AP

(Bandwidth : 300Mbps)

Wi-Fi performance is ok.

B. 1G Media Converter Connects 802.11ac Wave 2 AP

( Bandwidth > 1 Gbps; Frequency: 2.5G/5G  )

barrier to the effective use of higher data rate.

C. Pure10G Media Converter Connects 802.11ac Wave 2 AP

( Bandwidth > 1 Gbps; Frequency: 2.5G/5G )
Can not negotiate and enable date rate to 2.5G/5G automatically.

—  CTS 10G NBASE-T Solution  —

( Bandwidth > 1 Gbps; Frequency: 2.5G/5G )
MCT-5002SFP+ could auto-negotitation data rate between 2.5G/5G and provide effective higher data rate for Wi-Fi AP.
