Extend Ethernet at high speeds over existing copper wire with the Black Box brand Ethernet Extender.
The extender provides up to 16.67 Mbps of high-speed Ethernet services between LANs or other network-enabled devices over a single twisted-pair cable. You receive two boxes: One is configured as the customer premise line driver, the other as the central office line driver.
This variable-rate standalone line driver enables you to select various asymmetrical and symmetrical rates to satisfy a broad range of applications. Typical uses in symmetrical mode include videoconferencing, interactive video, and telecommuting. Asymmetrical mode is used primarily for delivering Internet service.
The extender operates over the twisted-pair phone cable you already have installed, so you don’t have to recable with CAT5e or fiber cable.
The driver is easy to install, too. Simply plug and play, and use the handy DIP switches to select mode and speed.
The extender must be used in pairs and requires one unit for the local site (or central office) and one unit for the remote site (customer premise) for proper operation. Both units are included.
(1) remote unit (CP)
(1) local unit (CO)
(2) power supplies with (2) power clips (U.S. and EU)
