3G Fiber Power Converter (LDK 4425)
Increase Your Cable Coverage—10 km is Now in Your Sights

Our 3G Fiber Power Converter is the gold standard that can easily run beyond 10 km (6.2 miles). It supports all HD video formats too, making it worthy of a gold medal.

Venues and stadiums are the ideal environment for your new 3G Transmission fiber power converter. If you're seeking pre-cabled dark fiber perfection, prepare to fall in love with the LDK 4425.

Using single mode (dark) fiber with this converter means that distance is no object. Don't think in terms of 3 km (1.9 miles), forget about 5 km (3.1 miles)—you can extend your cable run to over 10  km (6.2  miles) and then some for when it's a marathon, not a sprint.

Dustproof, waterproof and with its own sun hood, this cool converter will happily work in all weather, even if you'd rather stay indoors.
