Meaning of MEDIA CONVERTER

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

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.
