EC-BASE EXTENDER SOLUTION – COAX

Introducing: NVT CLEER Simple IP modernization

The award winning CLEER switch is the worlds first 24 port managed switch that delivers 100 Mbps Ethernet (full duplex) and PoE+ over Coax with 2,000 ft (609 m) reach.

No need for a costly and disruptive rip-and-replace of your infrastructure when you can transform your existing coax into a robust IP platform with the CLEER 24 switch or the EC 10 switch.

The NVT Phybridge EC Extender Solution is designed to supercharge the downlink ports of a standard Ethernet switch delivering 10/100Mbps symmetrical (full duplex) and PoE over Coax infrastructure with distances up to 4,000ft (1,220m). That’s 12X the reach of standard Ethernet switches, thus removing the costs and disruptions associated with multiple IDF closet requirements.

With the EC Extender Solution, IP IoT devices can be connected to the existing Coax cabling infrastructure, delivering optimal performance, while saving cost, time, and environmental e-waste. Furthermore, the cost savings realized by using EC Extender Solution can enable system designers to transfer budget and resources towards higher-quality, applications and IEEE-compliant IoT devices, including IP-enabled phones, cameras, access control, speakers, and even facilities lighting.

Extend the reach of standard PoE switches with the EC Extender Solution

EC Adapter Options

There are three media converter options available to pair with the EC-Base Extender and extend PoE over Coax. The EC-Link and EC Link+ are single endpoint solutions and the EC4 enables 4 IP endpoints from a single long Coax cable.
