    This 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Hardened Ethernet Extender uses vDSL to provide an easy, inexpensive way to extend the reach of your Ethernet network over ordinary voice-grade copper wire. Use the Hardened Extender for harsh environments and extended temperature ranges. Because you use your existing copper infrastructure, you save on cabling costs. Plus it has an internal switch and eight Ethernet ports, so you can use it to easily add remote ports at the edge of your network.

    Easy setup
    Just plug a hardened extender into each end of your copper wire and use simple DIP switches to set one unit as local (CO) and the other as remote (CP).

    The extender is transparent to upper level protocols such as TCP/IP, and there's never any software to install. Plus, the RJ-45 port autosenses speed and duplex, and it features MDI/MDI-X, so your Ethernet is virtually foolproof!

    NOTE: Must be used in pairs with another LB308A.
