This paper summarizes Media-converter is a networking device that makes it possible to connect two dissimilar media types such as copper to fiber optic cable with OAM feature (Operation Administration and Maintenance).Media Converters are used in MAN access network (metropolitan area network) and data transport services to enterprise customers and Fiber to the Home (FTTH) for broadband access for last-mile solution, mainly for end users. The OAM media converter is implemented using the chipsets of PIC and Broadcom, explained in detail. The main benefit of the proposed OAM feature is its simplicity, compact and low cost design. Finally, a media converter with an OAM feature was built and is currently in the process of testing.
