networking 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.
