Are you using a large location with a lot of copper wiring and few good options for rewiring it? If so, the NetVanta
1235P ActivReach switch could be exactly what you need to expand your network without a cost-prohibitive wire drop or the need for multiple additional in-line switches.
This Fast Ethernet switch utilizes ADTRAN's proprietary ActivReach compression technology to deliver copper-based Ethernet service far greater distances than traditional Ethernet. Traditional Ethernet cable is limited to 100 meters before signal interference requires repeaters. ActivReach stretches this by five times, allowing for reliable transmissions up to 500m.
ActivReach is also fully PoE/PoE+ compliant and can provide power to your remote devices as well.
The NetVanta 1235P also brings ADTRAN's typical high-quality design, combining twenty-four RJ45 ports, up to four additional SFP optical uplink ports, Layer 3 Lite, and a Wireless Access Point controller. Along with ADTRAN's high-quality and easy to use software package, this makes a compelling option in affordable networking for businesses under cabling restrictions.
(Note: ActivReach broadcast requires an ActivReach Media Converter at the receiving end, sold separately.)
