Combining data flows from up to four network-enabled devices onto a single twisted pair or coax cable, the Model 1212E can deliver IP traffic up to 1.8 miles (3 km) away—well beyond the standard 328-foot (100-meter) Ethernet distance limitation.
With achievable line rates up to 168 Mbps, the CopperLink 1212E eliminates the bandwidth constraints commonly experienced with other copper-based transmission technologies. The Model 1212E is engineered to re-use existing infrastructure previously employed in legacy applications including alarm circuits, E1/T1 circuits, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, CCTV and CATV. Many newer cabling standards are also supported, including Cat 5e, Cat 6 and Cat 7.
A built-in 2-port Ethernet switch makes the CopperLink Model 1212E ideal for delivering simultaneous connectivity to more than one IP enabled device such as a laptop, a motion sensor, or even a few high resolution IP video cameras—all over a single twisted-pair!
A single-port version, the CopperLink Model CL1211E (available by special order) is ideal for applications requiring the enhanced security of a single Ethernet port.
