The Gigabit Ethernet extenders from Phoenix Contact enable broadband applications up to 1 Gbps over any 2-wire cables and coaxial cables. Ranges of up to 1 km can be achieved with the devices. The Gigabit Ethernet extenders are thus ahead of the Ethernet standard. This achieves ranges of 100 m at 1 Gbps. Existing cables can be used to set up future-proof Ethernet applications. This saves raw material resources and minimizes investment costs of installations.
Flexible network design
With the Power-over-Link (PoL) and Power over Ethernet (PoE) functions, the entire Gigabit Ethernet extender network and connected PoE devices are supplied with power via the data lines. This eliminates the need to install power supplies at the remote PoE devices. The Plug and Play installation of the extenders offers a particularly flexible network design from a point-to-point and line structure to a star structure. The Gigabit Ethernet extenders are particularly suitable for video surveillance, as modern video technology places high demands on the network infrastructure, which can be quite extensive.
