We have a 1Gbps single mode fiber run where I only directly control one end of the link, connected via media converter that has failed. The existing fiber uses a simplex SC connector I'm not equipped to re-terminate on my own. Looking up the specs for the media converter, it transmits at 1310nm and receives at 1490nm (no SFP; the optics are built in).
For some reason I've had a hard time finding a transceiver or with an exact match for the media converter (plenty like this if I needed an LC connector instead), but I do see a number of options specced for 1310nm TX/1550nm RC. Would this work? If so, is there a performance or signal penalty for the mismatch?
I know fiber itself can use either/or (it's just the medium), but again: I can't change the transceiver on the other end to match.
