Gigabit Ethernet Extender
High Performance Industrial Gigabit Ethernet Extender
PLANET’s Industrial Ethernet Extender, the IVC-234GT, fulfills the need of long distance and high speed required Ethernet over Coaxial or 2-wired UTP applications. It features one BNC port and one RJ11 port for long-distance connection with VDSL2 (Very-high-bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line 2), and 4 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ45 Ethernet ports. Its slim-sized metal housing makes the placement of the unit convenient. Working well with a coaxial or RJ11 network, the IVC-234GT provides an excellent bandwidth total duplex data rate of up to 300Mbps which can extend a maximum distance up to 1.4km.
If the IP network consists of HD IP cameras, wireless access points, NVR’s and digital signage displays and require an extension of beyond the 100-meter distance, the IVC-234GT will be the best option. It can transmit data over coaxial cable or telephone wire. The 100-meter distance can only be extended on an UTP cable.
Superior Upstream and Downstream Transmission
The design of the IVC-234GT is based on the two-core networking technology, Gigabit Ethernet and VDSL2. The IVC-234GT offers a stable yet high-speed point-to-point network access up to a duplex data transmission of 300Mbps. It provides 2 selective transmission modes, asymmetric mode or symmetric mode, for the transmission of upstream and downstream signals.
- Asymmetric mode – downstream up to 200Mbps and upstream up to 100Mbps
- Symmetric mode – downstream up to 150Mbps and upstream up to 150Mbps
The symmetric mode provides the similar transmission rate on both downstream and upstream while the asymmetric mode performs higher transmission quality in a short range. When the IVC-234GT is in the symmetric mode, it provides a better upstream performance, and when it is in the asymmetric mode, it gives a better downstream performance.
Ethernet over Long Distance Existing Coaxial or RJ11 Cable
The IVC-234GT is also a Long Reach Ethernet (LRE) solution which provides a quick replacement and smooth migration solution from the existing analog system to full digital system. It features two types of transmission, the coaxial or RJ11. A normal UTP cable can only be extended up to 100 meters, but with the IVC-234GT, the distance for Ethernet networking can be extended up to 1,400 meters (4,593ft.), which is ideal for the following network applications:
- Long-distance IP network devices
- IP digital signage
- Cable TV to IPTV
- Distance video education
- Electronic billboards
- Other applications
If you have coaxial or RJ11 cable in your existing environment, you can install a pair of the IVC-234GT very simply without the need to build additional network wires, thus saving costs for network construction.
Easy and Flexible Installation
The IVC-234GT offers two operation modes, the client-side CPE and central-side CO, making any network applications easy and flexible. The CPE or CO mode can be adjusted by using the built-in DIP switch. For point-to-point connection, one IVC-234GT in CPE mode and the other one in CO mode must be set up as a pair of converters to perform the connection. This enables the administrator to efficiently manage the network over coaxial cable, making long-distance transmission better.
For ISPs providing ADSL broadband services, the IVC-234GT can support a downstream rate of up to 24Mbps and an upstream rate of 1Mbps with ADSL2+ technology. The IVC-234GT can also be directly switched over to VDSL2 after the network upgrade.
