A prototype media converter for transmitting 10-Mb/s Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 data over a large-core (1 mm) step-index polymer optical fiber (SI-POF) is presented. The system is demonstrated over a record maximum distance of 425 m, which greatly outperforms, in terms of reach, previously published results and commercially available systems, which are usually limited to approximately 100 m. This extended reach allows to envision new applications of SI-POF such as in the last part of access networks, edge networks, in-house and in-building networks, industrial automation, airplane and ship cabling, and all areas where the resilience and ease of installation of SI-POF can be a fundamental advantage
