    Convert Medium

    What do I need to use to convert a UTP cable to Fibre Optic? Do I need to use a Switch or a router.

    I was told that one can change the medium but the other can't which one is it?

    Im not quite sure on this one, my initial thought is that there is an easy way to move data from fiber to UTP but not the other way, however I would think this is dependant on the hardware you have deployed and in fact with the right hardware you will have bi directional data transfer
