The VC-231GP, a PLANET Long Reach Ethernet (LRE) solution, is a Single-port Gigabit Ethernet-over-VDSL2 Converter with PoE injector function that is installed at a remote location connecting and injecting power to a PoE IP camera, wireless AP, or IP VoIP phone. It is integrated with three advanced technologies: VDSL2/ADSL2+ Digital Subscriber Line technologies, Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus.

The VC-231GP works with PLANET VDSL2 converters or multiple-channel VDSL2 switches to be able to simultaneously transmit Ethernet data over a distance of up to 1.4km over phone wire. It forwards the Ethernet data and provides a maximum of 30-watt power output over an additional 100m UTP cable to a remote POE IP device for network deployment.

Physical Ports

  • 1-port 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ45 with IEEE 802.3af/802.3at PoE Injector
  • 1 RJ11, connector for xDSL port with VDSL2 or ADSL2+ connection

Power over Ethernet

  • Complies with IEEE 802.3at/af PoE Plus end-span PSE
  • Supports PoE power up to 30.8 watts per PoE port
  • Provides DC 52V power over RJ45 Ethernet cable to PD with Ethernet port
  • Auto-detects IEEE 802.3at/af equipment and protects devices from being damaged by incorrect installation
  • Remote power feeding up to 100m
  • IEEE 802.3at/af splitter devices compatible

VDSL2 Features
