1. A media converter comprising:

  • a first interface configured to receive and provide a first type of data stream based on data packets,a second interface configured to receive and provide a second type of data stream based on a continuous serial bit stream,a signal processor, which comprises a transmitter unit including a line encoder, connected to the first and second interfaces and configured to convert said first type of data stream into an output continuous serial bit stream and said second type of data stream into an output data packet data stream on the basis of a block encoding or decoding algorithm and a line encoding or decoding algorithm, whereinsaid signal processor comprises a pad data unit connected to said first interface and configured to add specified symbols to said first type of data stream during silence phases in said first type of data stream, said transmitter unit comprises an idle generator connected to an input of said line encoder, said idle generator being configured to supply a specified idle symbol to the input of said line encoder; and

    said signal processor is configured to transmit from the media converter at least said output data packet data stream over an interface other than the second interface.
