Allied Telesis DMC Series media converters are among the smallest in the market today, and can be powered by either standard power adapter or USB. At just 1.25 x 3.6 x 0.85 inches, the Allied Telesis DMC Series can easily fit into the palm of a hand. In addition to being compact-with a small carbon footprint-the DMC Series can be powered with the included Micro USB-to-USB cable, or via the standard AC/DC adapter. Using the USB option saves installation time and cabling, as there are no further power requirements. The Allied Telesis range of Gigabit media converters provides a complete family of conversion devices, allowing users to extend the size of UTP networks with fiber cabling. Supporting SC, ST and LC fiber connectors, these converters can be used to extend networks with up to 500m of multi- mode fiber. Many new backbone switch products now support the industry-standard IEEE 802.1Q specification for Virtual LANs (VLANs) that send data packets on the network. DMC Series media converters are fully compatible with these packets, enabling them to be used in modern networks. Media converters that do not support this feature discard these packets, making them unsuitable for today's networks.

The Smart MissingLink (SML) feature monitors network connections and provides notification when network segments fail, allowing network managers to quickly identify the source and location of failed segments and minimize downtime. All Allied Telesis media converters feature auto MDI/MDI-X, allowing the converter to be connected to either a PC, hub or switch with a simple UTP cable. DMC Series media converters also allow the installer to test the integrity of the fiber connection, by forcing converters to communicate over the fiber cable. This 'link test' feature allows installers to check for cable faults-without the need for expensive fiber-optic test equipment. In cases of power failure, link loss or other interrupted service, smart link restoration allows the DMC Series to automatically restore the link, without the need to restart or reset. The DMC Series continues the Allied Telesis commitment to the environment with over 50% power savings.* With just 1.5W of power usage, DMC Series media converters are some of the most efficient in the market today.
