10/100/1000 Ethernet Extenders allow you to extend Ethernet services 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, Perle offers Managed Gigabit Ethernet Extenders that support 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-SM1110 Managed Ethernet Extender.

These simple and effective point to point Ethernet Copper Extenders are perfect for 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).

You will also appreciate how easy it is to set up the eX-SM1110 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. For high density applications check out the eX-CM1110 Managed Fast Ethernet Extender Modules.

10/100/1000 Ethernet Extenders are also available as unmanaged standalone models with support for Commercial Temperature ranges and Extended Temperature ranges.

eX-SM1110 Managed Gigabit Ethernet Extender 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 Perle eX-SM1110 Managed Ethernet Extenders 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.

  • 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.
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 to use the on-board DIP switches or the management software for mode selection.
Auto-MDIX Can manually set Auto or MDIX on the copper port via on-board strap or via the management software. 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.

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.
Remote Loopback The Ethernet Extender is capable of performing a loopback on the copper VDSL Interlink port.

Switches – On-board PCB
Rate/Reach Two switches enable the user to select the right balance between speed and distance for their environment.
Signal to Noise Ratio Selectable Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) of 6dB or 9dB. The higher SNR number provides better impulse noise protection but lowers performance.
Auto-Negotiation (802.3u) Enabled (Default) – The Ethernet Extender uses 802.3u Auto-negotiation on the 10/100/1000Base-T interface. It is set to advertise full duplex.

Disabled – The Ethernet Extender sets the port according to the position of the speed and duplex switches.

Link Mode Standard (Default) – The 10/100/1000Base-T link remains active independent of the state of the Ethernet link on its remote peer.

Link Pass-Through– the state of the 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet connection is “passed through” or propagated across the VDSL link to the 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet link on its remote Ethernet Extender peer. This enables a managed switch to report the state of the remote device to its network management system.

Interlink Fault Feedback Enabled – A loss of VDSL link will drop the 10/100 Ethernet port on each end until the link recovers

Disabled ( Default ) – The state of the VDSL link is not propagated to the 10/100/1000Base-T port

Loopback Enabled – The VDSL interlink will perform a loopback function, retransmitting all received Ethernet frames back to its peer.

Disabled (Default – Up)
