Gigabit Ethernet Bridge.
The Gigabit Ethernet An Ethernet standard that transmits at 1 Gbps. Used mostly to connect high-end workstations and servers as well as for network backbones, Gigabit Ethernet transmits full duplex from point to point using switches and half duplex in a shared environment (CSMA/CD) using a hub. Bridge offers speed adaptation for Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet copper networks (10/100/1000Base-T), and simultaneous conversion to optical fiber. The transmission rate can be set via remote management, and the fiber port has the modular design of a GBIC (GigaBit Interface Converter) A hardware module used to attach network devices to fiber-based transmission systems such as Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet. The GBIC converts the serial electrical signals to serial optical signals and vice versa. or SFP SFP Small Form-factor Pluggable (optical transceiver module)

Depending on the transceiver module, data can be transmitted over 100 km on a single-mode optical fiber In fiber-optic communication, a single-mode optical fiber (SMF) is an optical fiber designed to carry only a single ray of light (mode). This ray of light often contains a variety of different wavelengths. without optical repeating.--Microsens
