Installed in a high density Perle Media Converter Chassis, 10/100/1000 Ethernet Extenders allow you to extend up to 18 Ethernet connections beyond the general IEEE 802.3 limits of 328ft / 100m using any existing copper wiring previously used in alarm circuits, E1/T1 circuits, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, CCTV and CATV applications.  For environments where the 10/100/1000 LAN is being extended and network security is critical, an MCR-MGT Media Converter Management Module installed in the chassis enables support for all authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) security services used in corporate networks, including TACACS+, RADIUS, LDAP, Kerberos, NIS and RSA. To further protect ID’s and passwords from someone ‘snooping’ on the network, Perle Managed Ethernet Extenders provide secure management sessions by supporting SSH, SNMPv3, Telnet and HTTPS. These types of features are used when managing your corporate firewalls, switches and routers. This is why Perle makes them available in the eX-CM1110 Managed Ethernet Extender.

These simple and effective point to point Ethernet Copper Extenders are perfect for the wiring closet in commercial buildings, residential units, hospitality environments and remote offices … anywhere you need the ability to securely configure, monitor and manage long range Ethernet communication links between separated LANs or LAN devices (i.e. PCs, digital sensors, VoIP phones, WiFi Access Points, IP cameras and more). For low to mid-density applications check out the stand alone eX-SM1110 Managed Gigabit Ethernet Extenders.

You will also appreciate how easy it is to set up the eX-CM1110 with an intuitive Web Manager GUI and multiple methods of access. And, with support for IPv6, Perle Managed Ethernet Extenders provide organizations with investment protection to meet this rapidly growing standard.

10/100/1000 Ethernet Extender Modules are also available as unmanaged 10/100/1000 models.

eX-CM1110 Managed Gigabit Ethernet Extender Module Features

Perle’s advanced features such as Link Pass-Through, Interlink Fault Feedback, and Loopback allow Network administrators to “see everything” for more efficient troubleshooting and less on-site maintenance. These cost and time saving features, along with a lifetime warranty and free worldwide technical support, make the Perle eX-CM1110 Managed Ethernet Extender Module the smart choice for IT professionals.

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.
High-Speed Performance 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.

Link Pass-Through With Link Pass-Through the state of the 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet connection is “passed through” the VDSL link to the 10/100/1000Base-T 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 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports on each end until the link recovers.
Auto-Negotiation The Ethernet Extender supports auto negotiation on the 10/100/1000Base-T interface.
Auto-MDIX Auto-MDIX (Automatic Medium-Dependent Interface crossover) detects the signaling on the 10/100/1000 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, 100 or 1000 mbps as well as Full or half Duplex can be configured through DIP switches.
VLAN 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.

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.
Unidirectional Ethernet 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.
Auto-MDIX 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.
