An intelligent standalone Fast Ethernet Switch with eight auto-MDIX 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX ports and one 100BASE-FX MMF port, the SMC6709FL2 can connect to a distant backbone up to two kilometers away via its 100BASE-FX MMF/SC port.
99 Gigabit Module 1000BASE-X Ethernet Expansion Module (GBIC transceiver sold separately) TigerStack III 6824M 100Base-FX SMC6824FSSC 100Base-FX SMF $599.
The unit features a three-slot rack that allows the switch to be configured with up to 24 10/100Base-T RJ-45 ports or 12 100Base-FX ports with any mix of a variety of single-mode and multimode slide-in modules.

A MODULAR MEDIA CONVERTER for ethernet and Fast Ethernet networks, the MIL-341 x is a 2-port switch that converts 10/100Base-TX to 100Base-FX for extending network distances from about 1.
As flexible as it is powerful, the new SMC6724L3 switch has 24 auto-MDIX 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX ports and two slots for optional Gigabit or 100BASE-FX uplink modules.
The fiber is owned by Moody and handles both Information Systems' 100Base-FX network and all of the building-management functions from the physical plant.
The expansion slots support optional 1000Base-T, 1000Base-SX, 1000Base-LX, and 100Base-FX modules that provide great flexibility in enterprise applications.
For example, in a Fast Ethernet environment, a 100BASE-TX to 100BASE-FX media converter connects a 100BASE-TX twisted pair device to a 100BASE-FX-compliant singlemode fiber port that has either a ST or SC fiber optic connector.
Thanks to its wire-speed performance and high port density, the SMC6724L2 is perfect for medium to large networks with optional 100BASE-FX or gigabit uplinks to distant backbone or server farms.
Fast Ethernet also supports fiber cabling with its 100Base-FX specification, but again products that meet the standard are not yet widely available.
Ready to manage connections for 10Mbps and 100Mbps copper connections right out of the box, it can provide optional fiber connectivity via a choice of either 100BASE-FX or 1000BASE-LX, SX or ZX.
