EtherWAN Showcases Hardened Ethernet Extender with Full Layer 2 Managed Ethernet Switch



Internet Data Centers

EtherWAN showcases its ED3175 featured 8 10/100BASE-TX ports and 2 copper pair extender ports. Like other Ethernet Extender products in EtherWAN's line card, the ED3175 provides an alternative of long-distance Ethernet connectivity on a copper pair up to 1.9Km. What's new from the ED3175 is that it features 2 copper pair extender ports. This makes the network cascaded as a chain to simplify the overall topology. The ED3175 is also featured with EtherWAN's Alpha-Ring protocol that provides a high-speed network redundancy mechanism to recover from a network failure in less than 15 milliseconds with zero packet loss during the recovery process.The ED3175 is an all-in-one Ethernet equipment with combination of Layer 2 Ethernet switch and Ethernet Extender. When users are beneficial from cost-effective long-distance Ethernet solutions, they can also enjoy its fully layer 2 managed functions i.e. VLAN, QoS, IGMP, GMRP, Bandwidth Rate Control, Port Trunking and Mirroring, Packet Filtering, and IEEE802.1x Security.

Thanks to the hardened design, the ED3175 is guaranteed working under extreme environments -40°C up to 75°C. In compliance with NEMA TS2, the ED3175 is an ideal solution to ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) applications.
