|Extend Ethernet over twisted pair
||Extend an Ethernet link over category 5e, 6 and 7 cabling up to 10,000 feet ( 3 km ).
|Extend Ethernet over Coaxial cable
||Extend an Ethernet link over 75 ohm coaxial cable.
||Utilizes second generation VDSL2 technology ( ITU-T Recommendation G.993. ) . When operating under “Profile 30a”, Perle Ethernet extenders can provide an aggregate VDSL line rate capability of over 200 mbps.
Actual distance and performance may vary depending on the type / gauge and condition of the wire used.
|Plug and Play operation
||Perle Ethernet Extenders will automatically configure your VDSL interlink connection. The CO/CPE peer association will be determined automatically by the Ethernet Extender. No need to set CO / CPE VDSL pairing.
Once a connection is made, both ends will automatically adjust relevant VDSL parameters to optimize the level of bandwidth possible across the copper link.
||With Link Pass-Through the state of the 10/100Base-TX Ethernet connection is “passed through” the VDSL link to the 10/100Base-TX Ethernet connection on its remote peer. A managed switch on the remote end can then report the state (link up or link down) to its network management system so that any errors can be detected and recovered early.
Competitive Ethernet extenders without this feature will never detect or report any error conditions.
|Interlink Fault Feedback
||Similar to the Link Pass-Through feature, a loss of VDSL Interlink will drop the 10/100 Ethernet ports on each end until the link recovers.
||The Ethernet Extender supports auto negotiation on the 10/100Base-TX interface.
||Auto-MDIX (Automatic Medium-Dependent Interface crossover) detects the signaling on the 10/100 Ethernet RJ45 interface and determines the type of cable connected (straight-through or crossover) and automatically adopts a compatible pinout.
|Fixed Speed and Duplex
||Some Ethernet equipment require a fixed speed and duplex be used or cannot auto-negotiate. By disabling Auto-Negotiation on the Ethernet Extender, a fixed speed of 10 or 100 mbps as well as Full or half Duplex can be configured through DIP switches.
||Transparent to tagged VLAN ( 802.1Q ) packets.
|Transparent to IP Video compression protocols
||Fully transparent to such IP video compression schemes such as MPEG-4, H.264 and MJPEG.

|Quality of Service
- Bandwidth Allocation via rate limiting
- IEEE 802.1P tagged frame priority control
- IEEE 802.1P priority tag remapping
- IP TOS ( Type of Service ) priority for IPV4 Diffserv or IPV6 traffic class frames
- Congestion Service Policy through WQF ( Weighted Fair Queuing ) or Strict Priority Queuing ( default )
- Default – Transparent to VLAN frames
- Enable discarding of tagged frames
- Enable discarding of untagged frames
- Untag – Removes any existing tag
- Insert Tag – Insert (if original frame is untagged) or replace (if original frame is tagged) the VLAN ID and priority with the configured default VLAN ID and priority tag.
- Insert Double tag (Q in Q) – Append an additional tag using the configured default VLAN ID and priority.
|Unknown Multicast Frame filtering
||When enabled, Multicast frames with an unknown destination address are not allowed to egress the port.
|Unknown Unicast Frame filtering
||When enabled, Unicast frames with an unknown destination address are not allowed to egress the port.
||When enabled, provides the ability to restrict port to one-way traffic flow. Used in applications such as unidirectional video broadcasting as well as providing security for Ethernet connections in accessible public areas.
|Configuration Mode selection
||Select whether the module is to use the on-board DIP switches or enable the management module in the chassis to manage.
||Can manually set Auto or MDIX on the copper port via on-board strap or via the management card. Auto-MDIX (automatic medium-dependent interface crossover) detects the signaling on the UTP interface to determine the type of cable connected (straight-through or crossover) and automatically configures the connection when enabled. With Auto-MDIX enabled, either a straight-through or crossover type cable can be used to connect the Ethernet Extender to the device on the other end of the cable.

|Backup and Restore
||Provides fast and easy module replacement. Management module will always save a copy of the Ethernet Extenders configuration and will restore this configuration automatically to the Ethernet Extender module when it is detected in the slot
|Detailed port statistics
||To assist in troubleshooting links, an extensive list of ingress and egress counters for both copper and VDSL ports are available. These statistics can be viewed locally via the management module or from a central SNMP NMS on the network.
|Pause (IEEE 802.3xy)
||Pause signaling is an IEEE feature that temporarily suspends data transmission between two devices in the event that one of the devices becomes overwhelmed. The Ethernet Extender supports pause negotiation on the 10/100Base-TX copper connection.
||The Ethernet Extender is capable of performing a loopback on the copper VDSL Interlink port.
