In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the ease of installation in existing cabling infrastructure as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global industrial media converters market:
Ease of installation in existing cabling infrastructure
The twisted pair wiring is used for LAN connection in industries. The major drawback of using twisted pair wiring is its limited transmission distance of 100 meters. This challenge can be settled using fiber optics because fiber cables are efficient in data transmission over longer distances, apart from being economical when compared with copper wire. But, the complete replacement of network cables from copper wires to fiber cables proves difficult and leads to high capital expenditure. Most process and discrete industries have a large installed base of copper wiring as copper wires are easy to install. Furthermore, switching from copper to fiber necessitates industrial operators to replace the expensive equipment, which has copper ports.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for automation, “The use of media converter aids in the easy transition of media types and extension of the LAN using fiber optic cables in the existing infrastructure. The use of single-mode optical fiber can increase the reach to up to 130 km. As industrial manufacturers are increasing their Ethernet protocol for connectivity and the need to connect copper base connectivity throughout the enterprise, media converters offer viable solutions for converting media and extending the networking capabilities within the current network infrastructure.”
