VC-231 – Ethernet Over VDSL2 (Twisted Pair) Converter 10/100

9 in stock (can be backordered)

Part Number:VC-231

PLANET VC-231 is an Ethernet-over-VDSL2 Converter with high performance. It is designed based on two core networking technology, Ethernet and VDSL2 (Very-high-data-rate Digital Subscriber Line 2). The VDSL2 technology offers the fastest data transmission speed over existing copper telephone lines without the need of rewiring. The VC-231 supports ultra-high performance to the pervasive telephone line network with up to 100/100Mbps symmetric data rate within 300m and 50/2Mbps for 1.4km long range connections.

  • Cost-Effective VDSL2 Profile 17a/30a CO / CPE bridge solution
  • One box design, CO / CPE selectable via DIP Switch
  • Defines symmetric band plan for the transmission of upstream and downstream signals
  • Complies with IEEE 802.3, 10Base-T, IEEE 802.3u, 100Base-TX and IEEE 802.3x, Flow control Ethernet standards
  • DMT (Discrete Multi-Tone) line coding
  • Half duplex Back pressure and IEEE 802.3x Full Duplex Pause frame flow control
  • One RJ-11 connector for VDSL port with VDSL connection, additional Splitter for POST connection
  • Voice and data communication can be shared simultaneously based on the existing telephone wire
  • One 10/100Mbps RJ-45 port, Auto-Negotiation and Auto-MDI/MDI-X
  • Supports up to 1536 bytes packet size, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tag transparent
  • VDSL2 stand-alone transceiver for simple bridge modem application
  • Advantage of minimum installation time (Simply as Plug-and-Play)
  • Selectable target profile and target SNR margin
  • Supports extensive LED indicators for network diagnosis
  • Co-work with PLANET MC family Media Chassis (MC-700 / MC-1500/ MC-1500R / MC-1500R48)
  • Compact in size, easy installation
