VC-231G – Ethernet Over VDSL2 (Twisted Pair) Converter Gigabit

Available on backorder

Part Number:VC-231G

PLANET VC-231G, a new-generation and high-performance Gigabit Ethernet-over-VDSL2 Converter, works well with a pervasive telephone line network with a symmetric data rate of up to 150/150Mbps over a distance of 300m and 22/10Mbps over a long distance of 1.4km. It is based on the two-core networking technology, Gigabit Ethernet and VDSL2 (Very-high-data-rate Digital Subscriber Line 2). The VDSL2 technology offers absolutely the fastest data transmission speed over the existing copper telephone lines without the need of rewiring.

  • ITU-T G.993.5 G.vectoring and G.INP
  • DMT-based coding technology
  • Additional splitter to share voice and data
  • CO/CPE mode selectable via DIP switch
  • Selectable target band plan and SNR margin
  • Up to 150/150Mbps bandwidth (in G.INP, Sym, 8dB mode)
  • 1 10/100/1000BASE-TX LAN ports
  • Complies with IEEE 802.3, 10BASE-T, IEEE 802.3u, 100BASE-TX and IEEE 802.3x, flow control Ethernet standards
  • Half duplex back pressure and IEEE 802.3x full duplex pause frame flow control
  • One RJ11 connector for VDSL port with VDSL connection
  • Voice and data communication can be shared simultaneously based on the existing telephone wire
  • Supports IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tag transparency
  • VDSL2 standalone transceiver for simple bridge modem application
  • Advantage of minimum installation time (Simply by Plug-and-Play)
  • Supports extensive LED indicators for network diagnosis
  • Co-work with PLANET media converter chassis (MC-700/MC-1500/ MC-1500R/MC-1500R48)
  • Compact in size and easy to install
