SFP Extender Blasts 300 Mb/s Ethernet Over Coax Or Two-Wire Cable

Transition Networks’ small form-factor pluggable (SFP)-based Ethernet extender (TN-EOT-xx) connectsremote workstations, devices, or workgroups to a corporate network using legacy copper cabling at speeds up to 300 Mb/s. The Ethernet Extender provides the ability to leverage existing 2-wire or coax cable infrastructure to extend Ethernet service. The TN-EOT-xx device can extend Ethernet service on 2-wire cabling over distances up to 400 meters at 200-Mb/s bi-directional data rate, or extend Ethernet on coax cabling over distances up to 500 meters at 300-Mb/s bi-directional data rate. The device has a maximum data rate of 300 Mb/s, the fastest possible bandwidth for legacy cabling provided by an SFP device.

 

The SFP is plug-and-play, requiring no configuration or set up on the host device. It is ideal in IP security camera applications where the legacy cabling used for analog CCTV cameras can be re-used for Ethernet-based cameras in both indoor and temperature-hardened environments.

The extender complies with MSA standards and is compatible with any networking device with a Gigabit SFP slot. The extender can operate at a wide -40°C to 75°C temperature range. The device features an RJ-45 connector for 2-wire applications and an RJ-45-to-BNC adapter for coax applications.

 

The TN-EOT-CO (for the server site) and the TN-EOT-RT (for the remote site) are used in pairs and are available now. Transition Networks also offer a variety of Ethernet Extenders that deliver power along with data over Ethernet or coax cabling as well. For more information, visit Transition Networks. A datasheet is available and more information can be found on the product webpage.
