PoE Plus High Performance Gigabit Ethernet over Phone Wire Solution
The VC-231GP, a PLANET Long Reach Ethernet (LRE) solution, is a Single-port Gigabit Ethernet-over-VDSL2 Converter with PoE injector function that is installed at a remote location connecting and injecting power to a PoE IP camera, PoE wireless AP, or PoE IP VoIP phone/door phone. It is integrated with three advanced technologies:

- VDSL2/ADSL2+ Digital Subscriber Line technologies
- Gigabit Ethernet
- IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus

The VC-231GP works with PLANET VDSL2 converters or multiple-channel VDSL2 switches to be able to simultaneously transmit Ethernet data over a distance of up to 1.4km (4,593ft) over phone wire. The VC-231GP forwards the Ethernet data and provides a maximum of 30-watt power output over an additional 100m UTP cable to a remote IP device complied with 802.3af/at PoE PD (powered device) for network deployment. Users have the ability to grow the structure of the current networks simply with even more flexibility.

IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus
The PoE in-line power following the IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus standard makes the VC-231GP able to deliver Gigabit speed Ethernet data and up to 30 watts of power to remote PoE PDs over one Cat.5E/6 Ethernet cable. The VC-231GP provides more flexibility in power requirements for all kinds of PDs at affordable installation costs.

150/150Mbps Downstream/Upstream High Performance Gigabit Ethernet over Phone Wire
Via the latest VDSL2 technology, the VC-231GP offers selectable asymmetric/symmetric band profile capability. It works well with a pervasive telephone line network with a symmetric data rate of up to 150/150Mbps (G.INP, Sym, 8dB) over a distance of 300m and 21/11Mbps over a long distance of 1.4km. PLANET Gigabit Ethernet over VDSL2 series offers absolutely the fastest data transmission speed over the existing copper telephone lines without the need of rewiring.

Versatile, Flexible and Easy Installation
PLANET Gigabit Ethernet-over-VDSL2 converters come with a plug-and-play design. The VC-231GP offers two operation modes, CPE and CO, for application -- CPE mode is used at client side and CO mode is at central side. The CPE or CO mode can be adjusted by using a built-in DIP switch.

For point-to-point connection, the VC-231GP in the CPE mode and the VC-231G or VC-234G in the CO mode must be set up as one pair of converters to perform the connection. It gives administrators the ability to reply a fresh local Intranet in various locations by utilizing the original network structure without additional costs.

Stable and Reliable DSL Data Connection
With the integrated support for the ITU-T’s new G.993.5 Vectoring technology, the VC-231GP works in conjunction with vectoring-enabled DSLAMs to remove crosstalk interference and improve maximum line bandwidth across the existing copper infrastructure.

Implementing with Existing Telephone System
Use the additional splitter from the package of the VC-231GP to share the existing phone line with POTS, thus replacing the existing copper wiring is not necessary. Just plug the VC-231GP with the additional splitter into the existing RJ11 telephone jack and a high-performance VDSL2 network can be connected. It is ideal for use as an Ethernet extender to an existing Ethernet network.

ADSL2+ Fallback
For those ISPs that still provide ADSL broadband service, the VC-231GP can support transmission rates up to 24Mbps downstream and 1Mbps upstream with the ADSL2+ technology. The VC-231GP establishes a connection with ISP and can be also directly switched over to VDSL2 after the ISP network upgrade.
