The TP-Link MC220L is a media converter designed to convert 1000BASE-SX/LX/LH Fibre to 1000Base-T copper media or vice versa. Designed under IEEE802.3ab 1000Base-T and IEEE802.3z 1000Base-SX/LX/LH standards, this TP-Link MC220L is designed for use with multi-mode/single-mode Fibre cable utilising the SC/LC-Type connector and works at 850nm on both transmitting and receiving data when adopting multi-mode Fibre and 1310nm on both transmitting and receiving data when adopting single-mode.


  • Works at 1000Mbps in Full-Duplex mode for both TX port and FX port
  • Complies with IEEE 802.3ab and IEEE 802.3z
  • Supports auto MID/MID-X for TX port
  • Provides switch configuration of Force /Auto transfer mode for FX port
  • FX port support hot-swappable
  • Extends Fibre distance up to 0.55km for multi-mode Fibre and 10km for single-mode Fibre
  • Easy-to-view LED indicators provide status to monitor network activity easily
  • External power supply


Other features of this module include the ability to be used as a stand alone device (no chassis required) or with TP-LINK´s 19" system chassis, Auto MDI/MDI-X for TX port, and front panel status LEDs. The TP-Link MC220L will transmit at extended Fibre optic distances utilising multi-mode Fibre up to 0.55 kilometers and 10 kilometers when utilising single-mode Fibre.
