Media Converter

<networking> A component used in Ethernet, although it is not part of the IEEE standard. The IEEE standard states that all segments must be linked with repeaters. Media converters were developed as a simpler, cheaper alternative to repeaters. However, in the 1990s the cost difference between the two is negligible.
