An Ethernet to Fiber Media Converter can also be used where there is high level of electromagnetic interference or EMI which is a common phenomenon found in industrial plants. This interference can cause corruption of data over copper-based ethernet links. Data transmitted over fiber optic cable however is completely immune to this type of noise. An Ethernet to Fiber Optic Converter therefore enables you to inter-connect your copper-ethernet devices over fiber ensuring optimal data transmission across the plant floor.

Ethernet over 4 E1 Converter Brief Introduction



Sopto’s Ethernet over 4 E1 converter, which is the 10Base-T Ethernet interface to 4 E1 interface converter, offers a channelized E1 and 10Base-T interface conversion. This equipment offers electrical level conversion between 10Base-T Ethernet interfaces and a G.703 / E1 (or fractional E1) interfaces.

Ethernet over 4 E1 Interface Converter provides the user with 4 x Ethernet over 4 x E1 conversion enabling the user to transport Ethernet data over up to 4 E1 links.


The equipment be always installed and used in pairs, with one terminal being installed at either end of the network.

Ethernet over 4 E1 - 4E1/10(100) Base-T Interface Converter is an Ethernet extension device utilizing TDM telecom infrastructure (the telecom network of E1s, or of PDH, SDH and E1/E3/SDH microwave etc. carrying E1s).

It converts the Ethernet data into E1 frame format for transmission over the existing TDM (E1) links and then re-converts the E1s back into Ethernet data the far-end terminal, to BRIDGE two Ethernet LANs over the existing E1-based telecom network.


The device can effectively utilize the redundant bandwidth of telecom operators’ existing TDM network to transport Ethernet data with low investment.




The equipment may be used for the following purposes:


  • Bridging Ethernet LANs over existing TDM (E1) telecom network.
  • Extending Ethernet networks utilizing TDM (E1) landline based telecom infrastructure.
  • Interconnecting DSLAMs to Central Routers over PDH/SDH
  • Interconnecting IP based GSM base stations
  • Interconnecting WiMAX base stations
  • Using telecom network of E1s / PDH / SDH microwave etc. carrying E1s to transport Ethernet data.
