Long Reach Ethernet over any Cable


Many older office buildings, schools, hotels, hospitals and distribution facilities rely solely on CAT3 or voice-grade cabling infrastructure for their legacy phone systems. Traditionally, businesses have been forced to run new cable to access cutting edge Ethernet services, which quickly becomes cost-prohibitive for many companies. We offer ActivReach, an innovative technology that breaks down these barriers, and unlocks the power of Ethernet. ActivReach, available on the NetVanta 1235P and 1535P Ethernet switches allows businesses around the world to utilize their existing wiring infrastructure (CAT5/6, CAT3 or Legacy Copper) to deliver 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and PoE up to 1,600 feet (488 meters). ActivReach:
  • Supports up to 100 Mbps Ethernet connectivity utilizing 4-pair, 2-pair, or even a single twisted-pair of CAT3, or legacy voice-grade copper
  • Extends Ethernet reach up to 1600 feet (488 meters) across all grades of cabling
  • Delivers PoE and up to 100 Mbps connectivity to devices, such as IP phones, Digital signs, Access Points or IP security cameras
  • VoIP Setup Wizard for faster VoIP deployments
