Media Converter advice - coax to fiber to coax



We rent a small building on the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa. We currently have Rogers internet (Pro 1S) and I want to add 8 Rogers Business Phone lines.


Here is my challenge:


The Rogers demarcation point is in one building and I am in another about 3km away. I only have access to a few strands of fiber between the two buildings.  I have my internet modem at the current demarc point and using a fiber transceivers to connect to my location. However, the Rogers Phone modem with coax in/eight lines out needs to be in my building.


I am looking for recomendations on media converters (coax to fiber back to coax) that could handle both Rogers Phone and Internet (or at least handle the phone component). This would allow me to "move" the demarcation point back to my building and have the modems in my building. It would be way more convenient because if I need to reset either device it would save me travel time. Plus I feel better having all my toys under one roof.


I am sure it can be done, I am just wondering if anyone has done this before or if their are any constraints/specs I need to consider other than fiber connector type?
