Transition Networks Debuts Ethernet Over 2-Wire Extender with PoE+
Networks, Inc., a leading provider of innovative, high-value, data
network integration solutions, today expanded its family of Ethernet
extenders by introducing the Ethernet
Over 2-Wire Extender With PoE+ which extends networks at near
Gigabit speeds and provides power to security cameras, wireless access
points, and other IP devices at distances beyond the typical 100m
Ethernet cable limitation.
The new extenders save time and money by leveraging existing unshielded
twisted pair (UTP) cabling infrastructure to provide data and safety
extra low voltage (SELV) power to IP/Ethernet devices in remote
locations or at legacy sites, eliminating the need to install new cable
and electrical power for upgrading, extending, or bridging networks.
They are used in pairs, with a local or remote device installed at
opposite ends of the UTP cable, and Transition Networks' (News - Alert) proprietary
SELV classification method prevents power delivery to unintended devices
for added safety.
The extenders are the most flexible in the market with a
10/100/1000Base-T RJ-45 or 100/1000Base-X SFP combo port allowing
connection to either copper or fiber Ethernet devices. Adding to the
flexibility, these extenders provide an RJ-45 and 2-wire terminal block
connection to accommodate CAT 5/6, CAT 3 or 2-wires of other 18-24 AWG
UTP cable. The extenders can deiver full PoE+ at distances ranging from
400-7,000 feet (depending on cable type and number of wire pairs
available), and data at half-gigabit Ethernet speeds over UTP cable at
distances of 660 feet or fast Ethernet speeds at 2,000 feet (also
depending on wire gauge). Advanced management and configuration can be
performed through the user-friendly GUI using a single IP address.
Features such as auto power reset provide further savings by allowing
connected devices to be remotely monitored and rebooted in the event
they become unresponsive, eliminating the need to dispatch technicians
for simple power issues.
"The evolution from analog phones and PBXes to IP telephony and other
cabling upgrades have left a lot of 2-wire cabling stranded in the walls
of many enterprises. These new extenders can help network managers to
leverage that asset for the latest Ethernet applications," said
GlenNiece Kutsch, Product Manager at Transition Networks. "This allows
network operators to save time and money over installing new cable and
electrical power when upgrading or extending networks."
The EO2PSE4052-111 (local unit) and EO2PD4052-111 (remote unit) Ethernet
Over 2-Wire Extender With PoE+ are IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3af/at compliant and are
available now. They will be making their debut on the show floor during
ISC West in Las Vegas and will be featured in the New Product Showcase.
