Media converters are devices that convert data passing from one media to another, such as from fiber optics to twisted pair copper. Various electrical/fiberoptic media converters are used in the telecommunications industry to transmit voice, data and video signals. Media converter systems used in data networks to convert signal transmission between electrical signals and fiber optical signals typically includes an optical signal receiver circuit with a converter to change the optical signal into an analog electrical signal, a quantizer for converting the analog electrical signal into digital format, and an encoder for converting the signals from the quantizer into coding for wire transmission. A media converter has a pair of ports that are to be connected to a fiber optic cable and a UTP cable, respectively. For each of the ports, a physical-layer device that supports MII (media independent interface) conforming to IEEE802.3 standards is provided. A signal transformer is also included to isolate the receiver circuit from the media interface which is coupled to wire and optical cables. A media converter usually has a missing-link function such that, in case of disconnection in one link, the other link is automatically disconnected.
