This USB 3.0 to fiber-optic converter lets you utilize the USB 3.0 (Type-A) port on your laptop or tablet to provide a secure fiber network connection. Windows and Mac compatible, the network adapter provides a Gigabit Ethernet (1000Mbps) optical network connection for portable laptops or tablets, or systems without expansion slots.

A flexible solution with an open SFP slot

The open SFP slot enables you to use your preferred SFP transceiver module to meet your networking needs – use an SFP with your desired wavelength, distance, and connection type to achieve an efficient network solution. (SFP sold separately.)

Secure fiber-to-the-desk connectivity

This USB to fiber-optic converter provides reliable fiber connectivity while protecting your network from problems with electronic interference – a common issue with copper Ethernet networks. Fiber-to-the-desk connectivity (FTTD) maximizes network security, reducing the risk of data leaks for sensitive information, without compromising network speed and reliability.

Easy portability

Compact and portable, this USB 3.0 to fiber-optic converter is powered directly from the USB port.

Plug and play

Get up and running quickly. The USB to fiber-optic converter supports certified drivers for Windows, Mac and Linux. Once the adapter is plugged into a USB port, you simply install the drivers and the adapter is ready to transmit over a fiber network.
