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, PoE wireless AP, or PoE IP VoIP phone/door 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 (4,593ft) over phone wire. The VC-231GP forwards the Ethernet data and provides a maximum of 30-watt power output over an additional 100m UTP cable to a remote IP device complied with 802.3af/at PoE PD (powered device) for network deployment. Users have the ability to grow the structure of the current networks simply with even more flexibility.
