Hi – I have had reports from a UK iLive user employing optical fiber with no problems;
the Switcher thy used was a ‘Web Smart Switch’ from a company called Level One [https://www.levelone.eu/products2.php?serie=7020] i believe the units cost about £90 each. then you need an LC interface to get the fiber into the smart switch, they used Fibre Co for the interface: [https://www.fibre.co.uk/productindex2.html] they got them to make a panel mount rugged fibre connector to LC for each switch, (mounted this on a panel to go in each rack) then we used one of their standard 150m deployable fibre cables to go between the two boxes. fiber cables can be joined together with no problems for longer lengths.

please do not adjust your set; normal service will be resumed as soon as possible!
