Managed Ethernet Extenders

Ethernet Extenders transparently extend 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections across any existing copper wiring – CAT5/6/7, coax, alarm circuits, E1/T1 circuits, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, CCTVand CATV.  In environments where the LAN is being extended and network security is critical, Perle recommends Managed 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 features are used when managing corporate firewalls, switches and routers. Therefore, it should be expected that they are available in a Managed Ethernet Extender.

Managed Ethernet Extenders are available in the following form factors:

Stand Alone
for low to mid density applications

Chassis Ethernet Extender

Managed Fast Ethernet Extenders
10/100 Base-TX

Managed Gigabit Ethernet Extenders
10/100/1000 Base-T

for high-density applications

Chassis Ethernet Extender

Managed Fast Ethernet Extender Modules

For those environments requiring a medium to large-scale deployment of Ethernet Extenders, a centralized platform that simplifies the configuration, administration, monitoring, and troubleshooting of this gear is recommended. PerleVIEW Device Management software is a multi-user, Windows server-based application that delivers this level of Enterprise-grade solution.

The quality of Ethernet Extender that you choose will affect the uptime of your network.

Choose an Ethernet Extender that is made with robust and reliable components.

If you choose a low-end Ethernet Extender, the end to end connection on your network will always appear as if it is up and running, even though the connection may be broken or disconnected. All Perle Ethernet Extenders have an on-board microcontroller which deals with error detection and recovery by continuously monitoring the status of the links. If there is a break or failure in the link, both end devices become aware and react accordingly.

In addition, Perle Ethernet Copper Extenders only use high-end components from leading chip manufacturers to ensure product reliability.

Choose an Ethernet Extender with high MTBF rates.

Most Ethernet Extender manufacturers do not publish (or make very difficult to find) their MTBF’s. Perle is proud of the reliability of all our Ethernet Extenders. The high MTBF rates can be found on the Hardware Specs for each product.
