The industrial media converter should give 100 Mbps performance. Do you need the Industrial PTC-101 or can you use something else? If this is a not rail-mount install, does the switch have a media fibre link available? Most Cisco, HP, D-Link, etc. switches will have a GBIC available that connects fible GBIC With more info about your issue/question could have other ideas.
