Versatek VX-VEB160R2 Ethernet Extender (Single Unit)

SKU: 221 Category:



The VX-VEB160R2 Ethernet extender supports the signal conversion between traditional Ethernet and innovative VDSL2 technology. The device is the right solution to integrate current Ethernet applications with the new building's phone line network technology.

The VX-VEB160R2 Ethernet extender supports symmetrical and asymmetrical data transmission bandwidth up to 50Mbps and distances of up to 1000ft. It is ideal for providing video-on-demand and multimedia services to apartments, hotels, and campuses without rewiring considerations. Moreover, the distance expansion also provides wide range coverage.

The VX-VEB160R2 Ethernet extender is plug-n-play without any software to configure and is also fully compliant with various network protocols. Moreover, the rich diagnostic LEDs on the front-panel provide the operating status of the system.

Ethernet Distance extension
Two VX-VEB160R2 acting as a standalone pair is good for Ethernet distance extension over existing telephone wires. With just one pair of AWG-24 copper wire, you can easily connect two Ethernet networks together with maximum 100/55Mbps data rate. Telephone service can still be used while the modems are in operation.

MTU / MDU / Hospitality Solution
The VX-VEB160R2 is the best solution to quickly provide cost-effective, high speed network services to multi-unit buildings, such as residential (multi-dwelling units) and commercial (multi-tenant units) buildings, hotels and hospitals. By utilizing the existing telephony infrastructure, network installation is straightforward and requires no new wiring. With up to 100/55Mbps, Video on Demand, IP telephony and various broadband services can be easily provisioned.

Last Mile of FTTx deployment
The VX-VEB160R2 is a great and ideal solution for FTTx (Fiber to the Building, Fiber to the Campus or Fiber to the Node) applications, it supports high bandwidth VDSL2 over existing telephone wires in the “last mile” from the ISP / Telecom / Service provider’s fiber node to the buildings and customers´ home. The 10/100Mbps port of VX-VEB160-R1 can be directly connected to a PC or to Ethernet devices such as Ethernet Switches and Broadband Routers. It is excellent for phone line network built by Internet because every room or house could use the existing phone line to transmit data in the Internet and the whole building could share the Internet to the wider area network with minimum cost.
