Difference between Unmanaged media converter and Managed media converter

Unmanaged vs. Managed
An unmanaged media converter simply allows devices to communicate, and does not provide the same level of monitoring, fault detection and configuration as equivalent managed media converters. Connect the devices to the unmanaged media converter and they usually communicate automatically. Unmanaged media converters are simple to use and install. For most unmanaged converters, minimal configuration is required.

A managed media converter is typically more costly than an unmanaged media converter.However, a managed converter provides additional network monitoring, fault detection and remote configuration functionality not available with an unmanaged media converter.

The advantages of Fiberstore’s Managed Media Converters
Fiberstore’s Managed Media Converters extended copper to fiber, multimode to multimode and multimode to single mode fiber with extensive security, network integration and ease of use features that are not available in similar products by other manufacturers.

Fiberstore’s Managed Media Converters support all authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) security services used in corporate networks, including TACACS+, RADIUS, LDAP, Kerberos, NIS and RSA. To further protect ID’s and passwords from someone ‘snooping’ on the network, our Managed Media Converters provide secure management sessions by supporting SSH, SNMPv3, Telnet and HTTPS. These types of features are used when managing your corporate firewalls, switches and routers. It should be expected that they are also available in your Managed Media Converter.
