Benchmark Magazine has selected the NVT Phybridge EC Extender Kits as a finalist for the 2019 Benchmark Innovation Awards. The EC Extender Kits build on the continued successes of the CLEER family of coax-to-IP enabling PoE (Power over Ethernet) solutions. The CLEER family of switches and extenders allow organisations to simplify and accelerate their digital transformation by enabling IP endpoints over any new or existing coax-based infrastructure.
The CLEER family’s EC-Base Extender, when paired with the EC-Link+ or EC4 Adapter, creates a robust, single-port extender solution leveraging the downlink port of any standard PoE switch. In addition to being sold separately, the EC-Base Extender is available with an EC-Link+ or EC4 Adapter to make up the recognised EC Extender Kits.
The EC-Link+ Extender Kit extends the reach of a standard PoE switch; enabling one IP endpoint using a single long-run coax cable up to 1,800 metrres – 18 times farther than a traditional solution. The EC4 Extender Kit supports up to 4 IP endpoints using a single long-run coax cable up to 915 metres – 9 times farther than a traditional solution.
