The Enable-IT™ 8955 8-port 56V 122W Gigabit Extended PoE DSLAM is the highest-throughput encrypted and Secure extended PoE Ethernet solution on the planet bar none! Delivering your network up to THIRTY-SIX times further than Ethernet’s stifling limit of just 328 feet.


Using your old 2-pair telephone wiring (or better), the 8955 Gigabit PoE Ethernet DSLAM can extend your Ethernet over 1 Mile (3,500ft) or 1.06km, effectively saving you thousands in labor, administration, and security.

The 8955 drives Gigabit PoE Ethernet through existing telephone lines to the 8 ports of Gigabit switched quad port Enable-IT 870 Gigabit PoE CPE units. The 8955 aggregates its upstream and downstream bandwidth through a pair dedicated Gigabit ports (dual copper or Mini GBIC fiber modules) to your Ethernet switching equipment or routers. This 8955 8-port DSLAM unit offer a significant cost savings for deploying multiple PoE Ethernet Extension runs from a single location and can be rackmounted for convenience.

Ideal for providing Internet access to multi-unit properties like Hotels, outdoor camps, Office complexes, Apartments, Campus Dormitories, Ski Resorts, Stadiums, Shopping Malls Trailer parks, Marinas and Cruise Ships.

This is trusted Business Reliable Professional Grade Ethernet Extension without the high cost of fiber or unsecure wireless. Why risk your business to lower quality imported equipment? The value of your network communications should be a protected investment.
