The EKI-1751 is a long reach Ethernet extender that utilizes existing copper cabling infrastructure (twisted pair) to extend Ethernet to up to 1200 m over VDSL2. Applications such as IP-based Internet, video surveillance, and voice services can benefit from the EKI-1751-AE series. The devices support VDSL2 Profiles 17a and 30a.
The Advantech EKI-1751 is designed to work in pairs over twisted a pair connection; as an unmanaged product, it is easy to install and each extender can be set to a master (CO) or remote (CPE) mode via a dip switch. Offering one model that can be set to master or remote mode and operate as a pair reduces investment costs while minimizing inventory.
The extenders support SNR margin, VDSL2 Profile 30a (high-bandwidth mode) or VDSL2 Profile 17a (long reach mode), and symmetric/asymmetric data throughput, all of which are dip switch-selectable. The selection of symmetrical/asymmetrical throughput of upstream/downstream data rates directly influences the distance covered.
The extenders meet IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standards and offer transparent support IEEE 802.1Q for VLAN.
