Corning Cable Systems, part of Corning Inc.’s telecommunications segment, has announced the addition of Gigabit Ethernet copper-to-fiber converters to its Plug & Play Universal System products.

The converters from Transition Networks Inc., enable network cabling managers to cost-effectively leverage existing copper electronics and help organizations optimize the connectivity infrastructure, particularly in data centres.

Up to 12-port Media Converters can be placed into the Plug & Play system’s 1-rack unit housing to offer 24-copper port density and up to eight modules can be placed into the 4-rack unit housing for 96-copper-port density.

Corning says its system uses less space for cabling and eliminates the heat and airflow problems that copper cabling can generate.
