Extend network data transmission distances an additional 100m and perform rate conversion
NASHVILLE, TN — April 19th, 2018 — Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced Ethernet device networking hardware, today announced an uncomplicated Ethernet Repeater with advanced features to ensure reliable data transmission.
Each point to point eR-S1110 Ethernet Repeater extends the network data transmission distance an additional 100m (328ft) over standard CAT5/6/7 cables.
There is a growing demand to extend Ethernet services beyond the specified limit of 100 meters, comments John Feeney, COO at Perle Systems.
Quite often, an additional 100 meters is more than enough. In these cases, installing fiber is costly and generally overkill. A simple Repeater is all that is needed in many commercial buildings, residential units and hospitality environments. However, many Repeaters on the market lack the functionality required to ensure that data packets are not dropped.
The eR-S1110 Ethernet Repeater supports auto negotiation on the 10/100/1000Base-T interface. This allows the Ethernet Repeater to perform 10/100/1000 rate conversion between the two ports if the Ethernet speed is different. This is ideal in scenarios where dissimilar networks need to be connected. In addition, it ensures that equipment does not need to be upgraded as network speeds migrate from 10Mb Ethernet to Fast Ethernet to Gigabit Ethernet.
Given that organizations often need to deploy equipment in locations that are too difficult or costly to have AC power installed, such as ceilings, walls, and kiosks, the er-S1110 Repeater can operate as a Powered Device (PD) under IEEE 802.3af supporting end-span and mid-span power sources (PSE).
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.
The eR-S1110 Ethernet Repeater uses high-end components and has an on-board microcontroller to deal with link error detection and recovery. Additionally, Perle provides a Lifetime Warranty and free worldwide technical support.
