OUTREACH Lite offers the possibility to make 200 meter out of the usual restriction of 100 meter for the length of network cables.
A configuration or power supply to the extender is not required. Also, no data is limited. OUTREACH Lite is compact, easy to install and gets its voltage from a POE switch via the network cable. Standard network connections are thus fast PoE-capable.
An existing PoE network connection to a PoE switch can be easily expanded using OUTREACH Lite. By using a single device, cable lengths of up to 200 meters are possible. Two sections of up to 100 meters each are connected via a OUTREACH Lite. The device does not require an external power supply.
It simply has two network ports that automatically configure and optimize a connection for speed, duplex, and crossover. If no PoE is available in the network, two OUTSOURCE (VOR-OS) injectors can be connected at both ends of the connection.
No additional components are needed as all Cat5 / Cat6 connections are regular Ethernet connections.
Since OUTREACH Lite repeats the Ethernet signal and thus counteracts signal degradation, the network can be extended to data quality without restrictions.
Therefore, the bandwidth of 200Mbps (full-duplex 100Base-T Ethernet) is maintained.
OUTREACH Lite can be used in combination with Veracity's OUTREACH Max (VOR-ORM) POE Ethernet extender to provide connections of 300 meters, 400 meters or more.
For example, to extend a 100 Base-T connection to 400 meters without bandwidth restrictions, two OUTREACH Max units can be mounted at 100 meter intervals.
A OUTREACH Lite (VOR-ORL) is connected to each end of the line. PoE would be passed from the switch or injector to OUTREACH Max and finally to OUTREACH Lite. Thus, no power supply is needed over the entire route.
This technique can be used to build Cat5 network connections with no restrictions over more than 2 km.
