Allied Telesyn & Panduit Expand Connectivity Options

Allied Telesyn and Panduit Corp. will offer a Fast Ethernet media converter using Panduit's FJ small form factor fiber optic connector, making it easier for customers to integrate high-performance fiber into their networks. Allied Telesyn's AT-MC304 100TX to 100FX media converter will facilitate the connection of Panduit's fiber optic cabling terminated with FJ connectors to UTP (RJ-45) devices such as hubs and switches.

Tom Donovan, Vice President of International Sales and Marketing for Panduit states, "Panduit's FJ connector has the largest installed base of small form factor connectors in the global enterprise market. Allied Telesyn's worldwide support of the FJ interface will help reinforces its position as one of the frontrunners in small form factor fiber optic connectivity."
