Antaira Releases Ethernet Extender For Upgrading xDSL Infrastructure

Feb. 22, 2024
Antaira’s IVC-4011-T-V2 Industrial Ethernet Extender is rugged to withstand harsh conditions and is a cost-efficient method to improve xDSL infrastructure.

The next-generation Antaira IVC-4011-T-V2 Industrial Ethernet Extender is a cost-efficient way of upgrading existing xDSL infrastructure analog cabling up to 3937 feet (1.2 kilometers). The device is used in pairs and increases network connectivity while also delivering 200/100Mbps asymmetric backbone bandwidth.

The IVC-4011-T-V2 allows for two LANs located close to a mile apart to link over a long distance point-to-point LAN connection. “To do so, one extender is set to Master (CO mode) to link to the backbone, and the other set to Slave (CPE mode) as the long reach data receiver. An extender set to slave mode can be used with IP cameras and other network devices to build a point-to-multipoint solution. No software configuration is needed, so users simply attach the cables, set the CPE/CO modes and turn the power on.”

The IVC-4011-T-V2 has an advanced switching architecture, offering four RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet ports, as well as the flexibility of an asymmetric or symmetric Ethernet-over-VDSL connection. An RJ11 or BNC port can be used to leverage the VDSL2 (Very High-Bit-Rate Digital Subscriber Line 2) G.993.2 connection, depending on the network’s needs. With this embedded port design, the user can establish a network connection utilizing either an existing coaxial cable or existing Twisted-pair telephone wires (AWG-24 or better). The device’s LED indicators show VDSL2 status, CPE/CO setting, speed, and power for quicker commissioning and field troubleshooting.

The IVC-4011-T-V2 is made to weather the conditions for indoor and outdoor installations as it is housed in an IP30-rated metal enclosure and can handle extreme temperatures of -40° to 167°F (-40° to 75°C). This makes it a suitable option to be reliably used in curbside traffic control cabinets and other challenging environments. It also has a high immunity to electromagnetic interference while supporting 6000 VDC Ethernet ESD protection, which meets the standard requirements for usage in industrial plants and indoor security systems.
