1-Port 10/100Base-TX + 1-Port BNC Ethernet over Coaxial Extender
Ethernet Distance Extension via Coaxial
PLANET VC-202A is a high-performance Ethernet-over-Coaxial extender that converts between twisted pair (UTP) and coaxial cable for every kind of IP Ethernet application. It offers the absolutely fastest data transmission speed over existing coaxial cable without the need of rewiring. On the UTP side, the VC-202A uses a modular EIA / TIA 568 RJ-45 connector that supports CAT-5/5e or above wiring with the distance up to 100 meters (328 feet). On the coaxial cable side, the VC-202A utilizes a BNC connector that supports 50ohm or 75ohm coaxial cable with the distance up to 3km. It is ideal for extending the distance and signal conversion by transmitting the Ethernet data from the coaxial cable for any type of IP network device such as IP camera, wireless access point, NVR and digital signage.
Cost-effective / Quick Upgrade Legacy Devices to All IP Networks
PLANET VC-202A Ethernet extender provides a quick replacement and smooth migration solution from existing analog system to full digital system. For example:
• Upgrade analog camera to digital IP Camera
• IP Digital Signage deployment
• Cable TV to IPTV
The VC-202A is equipped with one RJ-45 and one BNC port to transmit the Ethernet data over the most widespread coaxial cable. Therefore, it is very suitable and costless for upgrading legacy devices to new digital devices of IP-based network because almost every house or block on the street could use the existing coaxial cable to transmit data to the Internet and the whole building could share the Internet line in the wide network area at a minimum cost. Reusing the existing cable instead of new wire can save extra wiring cost as the coaxial cable and Ethernet line are already available.
There are two selectable models of the VC-202A, one is used for client side (CPE) and the other is for central side (CO). The VC-202A converter is a plug and play device without the need of configuring by software and is also compliant with all kinds of network protocols. Moreover, the rich diagnostic LEDs on the front panel show the operating status of individual port and the whole system.
Providing Superior Upstream and Downstream Transmission
The VC-202A defines asymmetric (Plan 998) and symmetric mode for the transmission of upstream and downstream signals. The symmetric mode provides similar transmission rate on both downstream and upstream. On the other hand, the asymmetric mode performs higher transmission quality in short range for central side (CO). In all, when the VC-202A is in symmetric mode, it provides better upstream performance, and when it is in asymmetric mode, it gives better downstream performance.
High Performance VDSL2 Solution
Community / Campus Surveillance and Security over IP
To take advantage of digital surveillance system and keep the benefits of coaxial cable, the VC-202A helps the community, campus and enterprises to upgrade analog camera system to IP camera surveillance without using additional new wires. The Extender is a switching architecture with one RJ-45 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet port and one BNC Ethernet over Coaxial port. Just plug-in the UTP cable of IP camera to Ethernet port and the existing coaxial cable to the BNC connector. It is easy to deploy and extend the distance with signal conversion by transmitting the Ethernet data from the standard coaxial cable. Furthermore, with high transmit data rate, the VC-202A solution supports multiple IP cameras input for sharing in one coaxial cable to reduce the cost of cabling.
MTU / MDU / Hospitality Solution
IPTV, VOD and digital message broadcasting services are the worldwide hot trends, and more and more service providers have upgraded the client side devices from analog system to digital system gradually. The VC-202A will be the best solution because it provides cost-effective and high speed network services by utilizing the existing coaxial cable infrastructure. IP network installation is straightforward. With enough bandwidth, the 100/100Mbps symmetric capability of VC-202A makes many Multi-Media services on local Internet come true, such as VOD (Video on Demand), Voice over IP, Video phone, IPTV, distance education, and so on. It satisfies most of entertainment and communication layer. Meanwhile, this kind of infrastructure also minimizes the burden on the Internet.
Commercial Location Media Network and Electronic Billboards
More and more media network and electronic billboards are built in commercial locations to deliver information over office buildings, shopping centers and stations in the cities. Integrating with Set-Top Box and LCD TV, the VC-202A provides an immediate and interactive broadcasting system over direct Ethernet connection instead of constant content and data exchange by human resource. It can also be integrated with IPTV and Web TV. Through the remote management function, administrators can interrupt the TV program for the news and the commercials. It saves labor and gets better commercial effect.
