As fibre becomes more commonplace, there is a growing need to connect LAN equipment together via fibre, either over short distances within a building (generally Multimode) or over longer distances between buildings (generally Singlemode). There is also a need to convert between different fibre types e.g. between a router Multimode fibre port and a long distance Singlemode fibre supplied by a Telecoms carrier.
As companies expand and move forward in the utilization of their existing cabling structures, there is a need to convert different fibre types from either the supplier carrier or the existing legacy copper infrastructure to a newer fibre installation or to expand an existing fibre system. This should be both economical and transparent to the network user, as well as extending the life of and distance of network itself.
