Overview

This USB-C™ to fiber-optic converter lets you utilize the USB 3.0 (Type-C™) port on your laptop or tablet to provide a secure fiber network connection. Windows® and Mac compatible, the network adapter provides a Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps) 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, 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 RJ45 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-C 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-C port, you simply install the drivers and the adapter is ready to transmit over a fiber network.

The US1GC30SFP is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

 

Applications

Provides a portable network connectivity solution for mobile professionals, to access a fiber network through the USB port on their laptop or tablet

Ideal for secure network connectivity - a direct fiber connection means no electronic interference, which can be a problem with RJ45 network cards
