The Data Connect 2178LRE2+/BP-MIL is a secure MILSPEC solution designed to provide bonded high-speed Long Reach Ethernet Extension over SHDSL on existing copper infrastructure, including Army WF-16 field wire.

In bridge mode the 2178LRE+/BP-MIL delivers Ethernet with full duplex symmetrical bandwidth at rates up to 4.9 Mbps at a distance of 5 miles. The 2178LRE+/BP-MIL transmits over 1 Pair in standard mode with TC-PAM 32 and can be used back-to-back without the need for a concentrator, multiplexer, or DSLAM.

The 2178LRE+/BP-MIL performs on IEEE 802.3ah EFM standards for advanced performance and management features. The unit is equipped with two MIL-SPEC A-A-59559 binding posts to provide high reliability at a low expense and with a maximum throughput.

The introduction of LRE copper bonding technology allows the delivery of a higher bandwidth over longer distances of multiple copper pairs that enable a good alternative in a place where fiber is not available or economical to deploy.

The 2178LRE+/BP-MIL provides a simple and clean solution for seamless integration into today and tomorrow’s networks. The 2178LRE+/BP-MIL is designed with a standard-based LRE technology 2BASE-TL. The actual
deployment is quick and simple over WF-16 field wire or other existing copper wires.
