Ethernet Over Coaxial Converter

High Performance Gigabit Ethernet over Coaxial Solution

PLANET Technology’s Ethernet over Coaxial Converter, the VC-232G, features 1 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ45 port and 1 BNC female connector with a compact-sized metal housing, making the placement of the unit convenient. The VC-232G works well with an existing coaxial network and provides an excellent bandwidth of up to a total duplex data rate of 300Mbps which can extend a maximum distance up to 1.4km. It is ideal for extending distance and signal conversion by transmitting the Ethernet data from the coaxial cable to another 100-meter UTP cable on any type of IP network device such as HD IP camera, wireless access point, NVR and digital signage.

Superior Upstream and Downstream Transmission

The VC-232G is based on the two-core networking technology, Gigabit Ethernet and VDSL2 (Very-high-data-rate Digital Subscriber Line 2). The VC-232G offers stable 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 similar transmission rate on both downstream and upstream. The asymmetric mode performs higher transmission quality in short range. When the VC-232G is in symmetric mode, it provides better upstream performance, and when it is in asymmetric mode, it gives better downstream performance.

IP Ethernet over Long Distance Existing Coaxial Cables

The VC-232G is also a Long Reach Ethernet (LRE) solution which provides a quick replacement and smooth migration solution from existing analog system to full digital system. A normal UTP cable can only be extended up to 100 meters, but with the VC-232G, 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

The VC-232G is a cost saving solution as you can install a pair of the VC-232G’s easily without the need to build additional network wires.

Easy and Flexible Installation

The VC-232G offers two operation modes, 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 the units must be set up as a pair of converters to perform the connection, one VC-232G should be set to CPE mode and the other in CO mode. This enables the administrator to efficiently manage the network over coaxial cable, making long-distance transmission better.
