Freedom Internet Fiber optic link properties

The link is a single strand of single-mode fiber, with a different infrared laser wavelength going in each direction. A splitter prism inside each transceiver separates the two wavelengths;

SC/PC connector

In theory, any fiber media converter which meets the above specs should work.

At my place, a ZTE ZXHN F3100 media converter is installed (powered by a 12V, 1A DC adapter);

Some media converters require a separate Small form-factor pluggable transceiver (SFP), which plugs into the media converter;


You may need a LC to SC adaptor plus a LC to LC cord in order to connect to a SFP.
Some routers have SFP slots.
