BeoLink is a concept developed by Bang & Olufsen that covers the method used for linking Bang & Olufsen products together in one system
controlled by one remote control. Today it includes three different concepts; the analogue Master Link system and the digital Network Link system
and Power Link used with speakers. No matter which link system is used by a product converters ensure for the interconnection into one system.
Products using previous link concepts will not be covered in this handbook.

Provided advantages
Control
One-remote - all at the hand
BeoLink - an overall introduction
BeoLink provides advantages such as:
- Distribution of sound to multiple rooms around the house + distribution of video by the use of an HDMI switch matrix to multiple TVs around the
house including distribution of various sources.
Access to sources, connected in one room, from another room (Join/listen in).
One remote control of all connected devices.
Echo free listening simultaneously (party mode).
Control of third party devices, both in the A/V world and from home automation systems.
-
Controlling products means more than just controlling the Bang & Olufsen products set up in the BeoLink network. It embraces the control of 3rd
party sources providing the audio and video experience via Peripheral Unit Control (PUC). This can be sources connected directly to the Bang &
Olufsen products or distributed e.g. via an HDMI switch matrix.
5
And even more! On top of the AV-experience Bang & Olufsen provides full integration with a multitude of Home Automation systems by adding a
BeoLink Gateway or a Master Link Gateway. Consequently it is then possible to e.g. :
- Control the natural light, (shades, curtains, and blinds),
- Control the artificial light,
- Control magic makers such as: Lifting TV, loudspeakers, projectors, screen, volume, light level, climate control, security systems, pool covers etc.–
almost anything is possible.
Magic, surprise, tranquility, believable
To complete the magical experience, all the above can also be controled by a
dedicated Bang & Olufsen app – called the BeoLink App. This is operated from
an iOS based device and providing possibilities such as:
- Customized user interface (UI) of BeoLink App.
- Browsing music from BeoSound 5/Beomaster5,
- Selecting TV and radio channels,
- Access to all home automated devices - i.e. whole home control and
monitoring e.g. by adding a door camera - to be viewed on the device running
the BeoLink App or on a TV screen,
(BeoLink App control requires a BeoLink Gateway a Master Link Gateway in the
home and an internet connection from where it is operated).
This can give customers “scene setting” such as: coming home; leaving home,
cinema, music, dining, relaxing, party, romantic - and covers all from light,
audio and video etc.
Apps
BeoLink - an overall introduction
Apps are usefull extensions to the Beo remote control, and the following apps are available:
- BeoLink App for controlling the Bang & Olufsen Audio and Video products and all home automation product linked by the BeoLink Gateway or
Master Link Gateway.
- BeoRemote App is focusing on TV operation and connects video sources.
- BeoMusic App is focusing on audio eperiences.
See also about One-remote on page 40.

Products are connected to each other using Master Link cables.
Master Link cables are assembled with the Master Link Junction Box and/or the Master Link Distributor.
Cat 7 cables are connected in the Patch Modules and Network Link Brackets; see page 122.
Master link cables can also be distributed using the Network Link infrastructure; see examples page 73.
Option programming of the products are described in details in page 77.
Master Link - an overall description
Video signals are distributed by the use of a switch matrix, and is an additional possibility to the Master Link setup; see page 34, and separate
Installation Guide.
To ensure compatibility between Master Link based products and Network Link based products they can coexist and are integrated by the use of
BeoLink Converter NL/ML and the NL/ML Delay Box; see the section about Network Link page 21.
7
Volume adjustment and tone control in all link rooms are totally independent which is provided by the distribution of audio signals at line level and
the use of a power amplifier in each individual link room.
Distribution of analogue video signals takes place in additional coax cables in analogue cable TV quality. Video signals are distributed from the
main room to the link room(s). Digital video signals are distributed using an HDMI switch matrix solution; see page 34.
Master Link signals are distributed as balanced signals, making it possible to distribute audio signals in CD sound quality, even over long cable
distances; see page 66.
Master Link system uses a bus-type connection running in Master Link cables. Master Link handles all links, i.e. control signals both between the
audio/video systems in the main room and between the main room and link rooms.
Master Link is a well-known and well proven solution provided and developed by Bang & Olufsen for connecting products in a larger system. Since
1992 the Master Link concept has been the Bang & Olufsen audio and video distribution system. The Master Link system has been improved over
the years and will probably remain as part of installations for many years ahead.
Master Link has the ability to distribute both audio and video signals. In the Master Link system audio and control signals are distributed using a
single cable, while the distribution of video signals requires an additional aerial network realized by coax cable.

Network Link - an overall description
Network Link - an overall description
Network Link is the Bang & Olufsen successor to the well-known Master Link. Network Link was introduced in 2012.
It is developed to give new opportunities within multi-sources, two-way control and ethernet based on a digital platform.
By the introduction of Network Link communication between the products Bang & Olufsen has started realizing the transition from analogue to
digital transmission of audio and video *).
Network Link can offer sound distribution from both audio and video sources.
20
Audio signals are streamed in CD quality, ensuring same quality in all products. Digital content stored e.g. in the home network can be accessed
without converting to analogue signals. Also DLNA is integrated in the Network Link system, providing easy control and streaming of content from
mobile devices. The new Network Link concept in its pure form makes it possible to distribute sound to other rooms only using ethernet/Wi-Fi
connections. Distribution of video requires a Cat 7 cable and is distributed by the help of an HDMI switch matrix.
Network Link products are connected through a router/switch (either the ISP router or a B&O Recommended Router). The B&O Recommended
Router is connected to an ISP router; see from page 42 and following pages.
Service features such as online SW updates are offered automatically, and users decide when to update. This includes download and easy access of
PUC tables for the control of 3rd party products; see page 41.
Products based on Network Link and Master Link respectively may co-exist so it is possible to distribute sound to other rooms by installing a
BeoLink Converter NL/ML between the Master Link products and the Network Link products. By installing an NL/ML Delay Box echo free party
mode can be obtained ; see page 40.
The BeoLink Gateway or Master Link Gateway provides the connection between Bang & Olufsen A/V products and the Home Automation
controller for the home environment, and also acts as gateway when using the apps.
Network Link TVs can get audio from one other Network Link products only. The BeoLink Converter NL/ML can get audio from all other Network
Link products. If an audio source can be selected in multiple rooms, then it will be played synchronized = without echo.
The Bang & Olufsen products can be controlled via any Beo remote control. Remote control can be extended by using the BeoLink App and the
BeoRemote App.
*) Video signals are distributed by the use of a switch matrix; see page 34, and separate Installation Guide for this.

Setup
Power Link - an overall description
Power Link is a Bang & Olufsen way to connect active loudspeaker systems to audio and video products. It ensures high quality in handling the
audio signals and proper control of link products and the correct sequence when powering On and Off of active loudspeakers.
The connections are established using Power Link cables. These can have DIN and/or RJ45 connectors in various combinations to match the
products involved; see page 89.
29
Over time there has been a wish to have as thin cables as possible both to obtain ease of installation and to ease the hiding of the cables. Also the
number of functions that could be operated via the Power Link cable has changed over time. This has influenced the number of wires in the Power
Link cable that has changed to meet the requirements - and consequently Power Link cables exists in various diameter - from Ø 2.5 mm (max.
length recommended is 10 m / 33 ft) to Ø 5.5 mm. See page 66 about length of cables and page 89 about Power Link cables.
Bang & Olufsen products provides from 2 channel stereo and up to multi channel surroundsound. The Power Link connectors typically convey a left
and a right speaker signal or alternatively centre and subwoofer.
Components for Power Link are cables and related installation accessories, to be found in the Passive Infrastructure section; see page 63ff.
Tips for installation are also found in the sections Cable management/handling page 63 and Installation principles page 67.
Wireless Power Link
Wireless Power Link - an overall description
Get rid of the cable clutter and make installations less complex and reduce installation cost. Consequently flexibility is enhanced. The solution is
Wireless Power Link.

Think of active speakers only conected by a mains cord. Think of set-ups spanning from 2 channel stereo set-up to a multi channel surround set-up
(up to 8 channel in a 7.1 arrangement). All sound is distributed wirelessly based on the unprecedented WiSA standard using the unlicensed 5 GHz
band. See more details in the Installation Guide for BeoLab Transmitter 1 on BeoWise > Speakers > Transmitter > Transmitter 1.
Think of free placement of speakers, and easy replacement later on, just moving the mains cord. No wiring between the master and the speakers
to consider. Within the defined boundaries that are an area of 9 × 9 m (30 × 30 ft) and a max distance between transmitter and speaker of 12 m /
40 ft. Also a max of threee 5 GHz transmission systems within an area called the 6 m / 20 ft zone is recommended. These requirements leaves
sufficient margin to compensate for varieties in equipment like antenna variations, RF calibration tolerances and temperature variations and
varieties in the surroundings like signal reflection objects in the room and persons moving around. Speakers reports the received quality to the
transmitter and if below a certain limit, a new and cleaner channel is selected.
Wireless multichannel transmitters are part of the some Bang & Olufsen TV or Bang & Olufsen Audio products providing the possibility to connect
to any Bang & Olufsen speaker with built in wireless receiver. Alternatively BeoLab Transmitter 1 can be connected to Bang & Olufsen TVs without
a Wireless or even 3rd party TV/A/V products. In the receiver end Bang & Olufsen has a port folio of speakers designed as wireless speakers.
Furthermore a BeoLab Receiver 1 can be connected to any active Bang & Olufsen speakers.

Distribution of video signals between TVs has been handled by coaxial cables and RF distribution via Modulator. The video sources are connected
to the main room TV using SCART cables or HDMI cables. The sources can then be used in link room TVs. Using RF distribution sets the picture and
sound quality limits to Standard-definition picture and mono sound.
A more advanced distribution of video involves an HDMI switch matrix (see the following pages) and distribution involving HDMI cables - on
distances up to 6 m / 20 ft - and even Cat cables and extenders - up to 100 m / 328 ft - depending on distances between products.

Evolution of integration
The BeoLink Gateway
Connections
Home Automation - an overall description
38
Controlling the home has evolved over the years, starting with simple control of light and curtains combined with A/V equipment from your
remote to the Master Link Gateway that included integration of light control, curtain control, and control of non-Bang & Olufsen projectors, and
screens in e.g. a cinema setup. These possibilities evolved as the need arose and was added one by one. In the second generation, we have been
looking at customer needs and selected a range of suppliers to work with and added these to the Master Link Gateway .
With the BeoLink Gateway, which is the recent generation of home automation gateways, we can integrate network Link and Master Link
products with a long range of partners into a Bang & Olufsen BeoLink system.
The BeoLink Gateway makes it easy to create scenarios, rooms and areas of the house with simple programming and pre-installed drivers from
many home automation suppliers.
The BeoLink App automatically replicates system settings (favourites, users, zones, virtual buttons etc.) and makes the control of the entire home
simple and convenient for the user to use.
The Home Automation panels, which is a build in web server, allows for any web browser e.g. via the TV, a tablet or a computer, to give a simple
control of all scenarios and/or home automation device within the entire home. You can get overview/status of the home and all zones/rooms that
can be controlled including two way feedback from the Home Automation systems. This also includes IP cameras that can be viewed and
controlled from the Home Automation panel or the BeoLink App.
Connect to:
- Master Link using Master Link plug or RJ45 for Master Link.
- Network Link using RJ45 for Network Link.
- RS232 using USB A connectors.
The BeoLink Gateway is a gateway between BeoLink (both Master Link and Network Link) and many different home automation systems on either
RS232 or IP based protocols. You can connect as many different home automation systems as you like and even use the BeoLink Gateway as an
integration point between these systems.
In case a specific driver is not present in the BeoLink Gateway, an interface can be made via the custom strings or a new driver can be programmed
using the open source Lua scricpt language.

- A new benefit for the demo of integrated systems within Bang & Olufsen is “the Immersive Experience”. It is a build in auto demo that e.g. can be
used within the stores where the BeoLink Gateway combines a movie with a script that can execute commands (either macros or direct defined
resources). This can be used for example on the solution walls with one of the integration movies from Bang & Olufsen, or it can be used
elsewhere with any movie and a combined script defined by the custom installer.
New advantages of the BeoLink Gateway
- General rules can now be added, so macros do not have to be built from scratch for every zone.
- Possibility to add waiting times for each command in a macro.
- Possibility to use astronomic clock for timer events.
- Drivers are written by use of “Lua” scripting language, which makes drivers independent of SW releases.
- The BeoLink Gateway knows what it is doing – for most drivers it can tell the difference between a switch and a dimmer. This is used when
creating User Interfaces in the Home Automation panel and to ease installation.
- Two way feedback from home automation systems.
- Home automation panel instead of Web panel – is now built in HTML5 resulting in a much better user experience
- Possibilities to make use of CSV files in the programming to make it easier to maintain and copy from setup to setup (e.g. an installer can now
have a basic CSV file for favourites and just copy it into the BeoLink Gateway).
- A house can be divided into Areas that contains several zones. This makes it easier for the programmer to keep track of everything and easier for
the customer to operate the system.
- Live update of programming – a change will happen immediately in the system – no need for pressing “Test” or uploading programming.
- Several programmers can work simultaneously on the same setup.
- Indicator telling whether a resource (BeoLink or Home Automation system) is active or not reachable.

One-remote has been a natural way to handle all products in a Bang & Olufsen system for more than 3 decades. This means that the same remote
or same type of remote acts the same way, regardless of whether it controls an audio or a video setup. Sometimes it may be advantageous to have
more remote controls - maybe one for each room - but the benefit is that the operation is the same well-known in all situations.
For many years Bang & Olufsen has also integrated control of 3rd party products, into the one remote concept. This is made possible by use of
Peripheral Unit Control (also called the PUC); see page 160.
The remote control can be Beo4, Beo5, Beo6 or newer Bang & Olufsen remote controls or any mix of these.
In addition to the remote control, we have also made solutions to be used on smartphones and tablets; the BeoLink App is made for the iOS
platform and works in both smartphones and tablets. With the BeoLink App you can control both your entire BeoLink (AV) system and your home
automation system.
The BeoRemote App used on iOS or Android tablets is another example of remote control app. It gives you convenient access to Smart TV, a
QWERTY keyboard, and is used for source selection, navigation (volume, source and zone) and source control.
Apps are useful additions to the remote control, and the following apps are available:
- The BeoLink App for iOS devices is focusing on whole home operation.
- The BeoRemote App for tablets is focusing on TV operation and connected sources in one room.
- The BeoMusic App is focusing on audio experiences.
PUC
IR-blaster/IR control cable
PUC
Usually 3rd party products, such as DVD-players, Blu-Ray disc Players, Game consoles, Set-top Boxes, Projectors, Audio or Video media storage
devices, media players, are controlled by their individual remote control.
In a Bang & Olufsen system we wants to operate all the products with just one remote control - the desired Bang & Olufsen remote control.
To be able to do this we have the “PUC control”. PUC is short for Peripheral Unit Control. In the PUC system all Bang & Olufsen TV’s are able to
control many different IR controlled A/V sources.
41
With the PUC control or the One-remote solution, an IR-blaster cable is connected to the Bang & Olufsen TV via a Mini Jack or RJ45 connector and
the IR blaster is connected to the 3rd party A/V product.
The Bang & Olufsen PUC control even works in a system where all the A/V sources are connected to an HDMI switch matrix (used in situations
where HDMI signals are needed to be distributed to different zones). In such a case the control of the HDMI switch is also build into the TV via the
PUC control. HDMI switch matrixes may be advantageous both if you want to distribute high-definition video sources to other rooms or if you
wants to simplify the number of source equipment and cabling in each room. See page 34.

Reading guidelines:
Two network scenarios are dealt with in the following. Read and understand the differences of both scenarios to choose an appropriate solution to
fulfil the customers needs.
Note: the Basic Network setup is described first, followed by the slightly more complex Bang & Olufsen network setup - i.e. to go from the simple
to the more complex.
The term ISP Router is used for the router that is part of the customer’s home network and which is usually delivered by the Internet Service
Provider. This kind of router often includes function as modem, router, switch and access point.
The term B&O Recommended Router is used for the Bang & Olufsen approved router that is part of the Bang & Olufsen Network setup, see
page 43, when a separate sub-network is needed. This is due to experiences where the ISP Router is causing varying quality in terms of securing
stable connection and distribution between products in the Bang & Olufsen setup.
In the two scenario the products are wired together in order to achieve the most stable network performance and best possible experience on the
home audio/video system. Wireless connections are of course possible although dropouts may occur.
Please note that all screen shots of web interfaces shown in this handbook, are only examples. Therefore, the actual web interfaces that need to
be configured may look different.

Network Link is a network consisting of Bang & Olufsen products connected to Bang & Olufsen recommended network active infrastructure and
network devices. To give the best experience to our customers Bang & Olufsen has carefully chosen and thoroughly tested this network
infrastructure. Only the recommended 3rd party products should be used to ensure an easy and problem-free setup and to give the best possible
experience to the customer.
Active Infrastructure - an overall description
Basic Network setup
It is often sufficient to build a Network Link setup based on
the ISP router as seen in the illustration. Today most ISP
routers are stable and deliver high and robust connections
in and out of the Internet and between products
connected in the internal setup. A switch is applied when
more LAN/Ethernet connections are needed. These are
used both for Ethernet connections and Network Link
connections.
This scenario may have advantages when a Home
Automation controller, a NAS server and a BeoLink
Gateway or a Master Link gateway is to be accessed from
a device using the BeoLink App.
Bang & Olufsen Network setup
To obtain a stable network with well known IP addresses
the network setup shown in the illustration should be
used. A Bang & Olufsen Recommended Router is placed
between the ISP Router and the distribution switch that
serves the handling of products connected in a network;
see recommended network products at: BeoWise, and
open 3rd party products > Active Network
Components.
This scenario is recommended as it is stable, tested and
provides constant IP-addressing and is independent on
break down or instability of the ISP Router. Bang & Olufsen
cannot guarantee malfunction of e.g. streaming through
the ISP Router like net-radio, video streaming and external
link synchronization.
Consequently it is recommend to use Bang & Olufsen
Network products and Bang & Olufsen recommended
devices on a separate subnet to guarantee stability,
performance and robustness within a Bang & Olufsen subnet;

When introducing the B&O Recommended Router it is recommended to set the ISP router in bridge mode. By this the B&O Recommended Router
has the router function in the network. Setting the ISP router in bridge mode can be made either by the installer or requested through the provider
of the ISP router. It is also recommended to have the Access Point function disabled.
The advantages of setting the ISP router in bridge mode are:
- A more simple setup.
- Avoiding two subnets, and consequently conflicts between the two routers.
- Easier setting up of port forwarding.
Note: In case bridge mode setting is not possible, it is necessary to use the B&O Recommended Router as a subnet router. See
page 46.

The following diagram illustrates the functional block diagram of a router.
Please note that this is only an example, therefore the actual block architecture
of the router may look different. ISP routers also typically includes a modem
matching the connection type to the provider.
In the following sections you will be introduced to: - accessing the Web
interface; - setting up the router connectivity and - setting up wireless.
Note: Do not use the CD enclosed with the router.
Setting up the B&O Recommended Router
Depending on the setup, the B&O Recommended Router can be used as:
- A router.
- An access point (AP); see page 52.
Accessing the Web interface
To access the web interface, switch on the computer while connected to the router.
- Launch the web browser on the computer, and enter the router’s default IP address, e.g. http://192.168.1.1 in the address field, followed by
pressing the Enter button. A welcome dialogue appears. Set at check mark ‘√’ in the two check boxes √ and press Next.
- In the displayed dialogue Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Sign In, select an appropriate language.
- In the dialogue next to For local access, press click here to enter the local Sign In.
- Enter the default password (admin) and press Sign in. It is recommended not to change this password; see page 55.
45
When the ISP Router is set to bridge mode, there will be no
address conflicts. To easy settings Bang & Olufsen
recommends to use the address range 192.168.100.x.

When the ISP Router is in non-bridge mode it will use an address range within one of the following subnets: 10.0.0.x, 192.168.0.x, 192.168.1.x or
172.16.0.x. To avoid conflicting with these addresses, the B&O Recommended Router must be configured with a different address range (subnet)
than that of the ISP Router.
Bang & Olufsen recommends to use the address range
192.168.100.x. Whenever possible, use the address
192.168.100.1 for the router.
The Bang & Olufsen products and devices can be connected to any of the Ethernet ports on the B&O Recommended Router, and if necessary the 4
ports can be extended by adding a Bang & Olufsen recommended switch to the router.
Connect the WAN port (marked with WAN or Internet) of the B&O
Recommended Router to one of the LAN ports (marked with LAN or Ethernet)
of the ISP Router using a Cat 7 cable.
Setting up the router connectivity
Two scenarios exists for the functions of the ISP router and the B&O Recommended Router:
- ISP Router in bridge mode and the B&O Recommended Router has the router role. Bang & Olufsen recommends setting up the router with a well
known - private - IP address, and the settings are made in a similar way as setting up a subnet.
- ISP Router in non-bridge mode i.e. works as a router, and the B&O Recommended Router has the role of a second router. To avoid conflicts the
B&O Recommended Router must be assigned its own subnet (2nd subnet). A subnet, describes a logically address range. In this way the network
traffic meant for the 1st subnet will not interfere with the 2nd subnet and therefore not overload the 2nd subnet.

choice. Observe the following:
- The name can be up to 32 characters in length.
- The ASCII characters from 32 to 126 (incl.) can be used.
Bang & Olufsen recommends that the default wireless
network name is changed to a unique name. It is
recommended not to include personal information in the
Network name, such as Social Security numbers, since this
information is available for anyone, searching for wireless
networks.
Consider the following:
The Network name (SSID) can be the same for both the
2.4 GHz network and the 5 GHz network, by which the network with the best signal strength and accessibility will be chosen.
The Network name (SSID) may also be different for the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz networks.
Enter a Password to both networks of own choice. The same conditions mentioned above re. the Network name also counts for the Password.
It is recommended to use a strong password, which means it must consist of: - 8 characters or more; - mix of lower case letters and upper case
letters; - numbers; - symbol characters.
Set Network mode to Mixed for both networks.
Set Security mode to WPA2 Personal for both networks.

49
When placing the access point or router the signal must be at least - 75 dBm when used with audio equipment. When a person is moving around
in the room where the wireless equipment is placed the signal can easily drop 5 dBm. The wireless equipment might work on a signal as low as
- 80 dBm, but you cannot rely on a stable connection with a signal that low. For full bandwidth - 65 to - 70 dBm is required.
In most cases ‘Auto’ should be selected as ‘Standard channel’. If manual channel selection is chosen in a Wireless setup, a number of wireless tools
can be used to make the channel selection and planning, for example inSSIDer or Wi-Spy DBx.
Automatic or manual channel selection
If many Wi-Fi devices use the same channel they will interfere with each other, resulting in lower performance of the network or no connections.
To avoid this, Wi-Fi devices can change the channel that they prefer to use.
Channels can be chosen although Bang & Olufsen recommend to set the Channel field to Auto, as the router finds free channels automatically.
The Manual Channel Selection should be used only for specific cases.

Reach devices from outside the network
In case of access from outside the network to the ML Gateway and other devices the port forwarding method must be used.
If the ISP Router cannot be set in bridge mode the following will allow for accessing devices connected to the B&O Recommend Router.
- In the ISP router make a DHCP reservation for the B&O Recommended Router.
- Make port forwarding through the ISP router and through the B&O Recommended Router for the individual purposes. See Installation Guides for
the routers and devices about port numbers and the setting of these.
Additional Access Points
Note: This section gives instructions on how to set up the router to work as an
additional access point extending the local area network.
This may be the case when the wireless part of the ISP Router or the wireless
part of the B&O Recommended Router will not make a sufficient coverage.
A Wireless router can be set up and used as an access point. When a router is
configured as an access point it is recommended to set the router in Bridge
Mode. The access point is connected to the network using a Cat 7 cable

Nice to know - about wireless
Router login password
Wireless Limitations
Maximum streams
Active Infrastructure - Nice to know
It is recommended, although not a must, not to use or change the login passwords of the router, based on the following reasons:
- To access the router settings,it is needed to establish a physical cable connection to the router, which is regarded a security matter itself - and
consequently a password may not be needed.
- New service technicians may not know the password in a service situation, and have to reset the router instead. The consequences are loss of
settings and unnecessary work to re-establish the router settings.
There are several advantages offered by Wi-Fi wireless technology. The advantages include high mobility and flexibility. However, there are some
limitations that must be addressed as well. Security and interference are the main issues with current Wi-Fi standards, as well as its inability to
stream high definition audio and video in a reliable manner. Echo problems may also occur.
To ensure the quality on audio streaming, do not attempt to handle more than 4 streams, on an access point.
Lack of support for high-quality media streaming
Even the fastest current Wi-Fi standards are pushed beyond their limits when trying to handle some of today’s high-end media. High Definition
(HD) audio and video files are bandwidth and time-delivery-intensive, and typical wireless networks have neither the transfer speeds nor the
consistency to transfer them flawlessly. This proves even more problematic if there are multiple devices connected to the same access point
because the bandwidth must be divided between all devices.
55
Active Infrastructure - Nice to know
Also, this chapter explains how to set up a Wireless network without the use of professional Site Survey/Planning tools. This could be the case in
setting up a small and simple wireless network.
56
This section describes various factors that can affect Wi-Fi signals and its coverage. These points should be kept in mind while setting up wireless
network in the customer’s home.
Wireless access point/router placement
In general the higher level of signal strength the better is the Wi-Fi network connectivity. If the signal/noise ratio is above 25 dBm, the signal quality
is good enough for a wireless product.
Conducting a Site Survey
One of the key factors in determining the success of a wireless LAN deployment is a site survey. Before deploying or expanding the wireless LAN,
field technicians need to understand the needs of the users in the current environment.
By performing a site survey, a field technician can identify the obstacles to avoid, eliminate, or work around coverage patterns to decide the
number of access points needed. The site survey should yield a layout document that describes the location of each access point and its coverage
area. See about tools for site survey page 49.
The following points can be of importance to maximize the signal strength and minimize interference:
In general, objects can degrade or block the signal. Identify any potential obstacles or impediments in the area to be served. For example:
- Walls – especially if the wall is composed of heavier construction materials,
such as steel reinforced walls in earthquake resistant buildings.
Ceiling – particularly if they are made of material such as metal and steel reinforcement.
Furniture – especially pieces that are largely made of metal.
Natural elements – such as water, trees, and bushes – not only outdoors, but also in many lobbies, courtyards or other interior public spaces.
Coated glass – transparent glass generally does not greatly degrade signal strength. But it may do so if it is coated with a metallized film or has a
wire mesh embedded in it.
-
Obstacles to signal strength
Signal noise
Noise from alarm systems, cordless phones, wireless headsets, and other non-protocol devices can interfere with an access point trying to send or
receive data. The site survey should identify the sources of signal noise present in each deployment area so that the WLAN can avoid at least the
already existing noise sources.
Use Wi-Spy DBx USB dongle and Chanalyzer Pro software on the computer to find out if there is any other equipment using 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz
which may create interference. See page 50.
Measuring AP signal strength
Active Infrastructure - Nice to know
In conducting the site survey, first make sure that you have the proper equipment; see page 49. This equipment can be relatively simple,
including the access points, antennas, and wireless stations that will actually be used in the deployment.
57
Place the access point in locations where it is likely to achieve appropriate coverage and then measure the result. With the access point in a given
spot, move the wireless station to various locations and measure the signal strength, noise level, and data rates produced. Take several
measurements from each location to ensure consistent results.
Active Infrastructure - Coverage and conections in local access network
The placement of the wireless access point or router/switch is important, in order to ensure a good connection.
Coverage and connections in local access network
Various methods may be used to extend the local area network for ensuring connection and coverage to the network products.
-
58
Preferred placement options:
Near the centre of the house.
Off the floor, ideally on a high shelf.
As far as possible from other Wi-Fi routers in the environment (remember to set the channel on the Bang & Olufsen access point or Router).
Away from cordless phones and microwaves, which operate on the same 2.4 GHz frequency and 5 GHz frequency. (There are some cordless
phones that are Wi-Fi friendly).
Keep antennas (access points) as far away from power cords and other computer wires as possible. Those cords and wires can interfere with radio
reception.
If one access point will not cover the residence more can be added to the router or switch.
Please use the same SSID and passkey, which will simplify the wireless setup on the products.
The Bang & Olufsen recommended routers support IEEE 802.11n and consequently 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz simultaneously. It is recommended to use
same SSID and passkey in all router parts using the 2.4 GHz setup and another, same SSID and passkey with all router parts using the 5 GHz setup.
In order to obtain the best signal, you need to place the Wi-Fi devices as close as possible to one another and as far as possible from other wireless
enabled devices that are not part of the setup. If the customer lives in an apartment or in close proximity to the neighbours, their wireless network
can also be a source of interference. However, many newer routers automatically select the channel with the least amount of interference,
ensuring the best possible connection.
An alternative to wireless access and/or LAN-cables is to utilize the Powerline solution; see “Extensions of LAN using Powerline” on page 53.
Active Infrastructure - Wireless survey, planning & intallation
A number of questions are useful to answer in advance, in order to prepare a setup:
Where do you live? (Mid town, outskirts, high-rise building apartment, etc.)
Indoor environment? (Concrete, Type of walls, number of floors, number of rooms)
Type of Internet connection?
Floor plan
Size of apartment/house?
Alarm system present, if any?

Setting up an efficient, robust and stable wireless network at the customer’s premises is a big challenge. The following sections will introduce how
to be prepared before going to customer’s premises to make the setup.
Questionnaire to the customer
-
Use inSSIDer to find out channel availability and see the number of access points present in the range. See page 49.
Measurement in the customer’s home
The following wireless tools can be used to identify the best way to make the wireless setup and identify sources of interference to the Bang &
Olufsen setup.
inSSIDer
Wi-Spy DBx (Spectrum Analyser)
Use Wi-Spy DBx and Chanalyzer Pro to track radio activity and analyse interference in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz spectrum. See page 50.
Wi-Fi Coverage/Site Survey Tool
In Wi-Fi setups with more than 5-10 access points, it might be a good idea to use a Site Survey Tool. It may be a good idea to get professional help
using these tools, since they are rather complicated to use and may require some practice.
Examples of the companies who have Site Survey Tool are:
- Ekahau’s Site Survey Tool
- AirMagnet’s Planner
Configuration and installation of Wireless infrastructure units
Follow the instructions regarding configuration of a B&O Recommended Router as an access point as described in “Additional Access Points” on
page 52. Connect the access point to the B&O Recommended Router or switch. Check that all access points are on-line and connect by cable.
Channel Planning
Active Infrastructure - Wireless survey, planning & intallation
60
In small set-ups the selection ‘Auto channel’ is recommended. It is the default setting. If two access points placed close to each other use the same
channel, it can take up to 20 minutes before one of them automatically change to a new channel. There should be at least 25 dBm in signal-tonoise ratio on a product connected to a network through Wi-Fi. With 2.4 GHz systems (IEEE 802.11b/g/n) there shall be 5 channels between each
access point; e.g. ch. 1, 6 and 11 may be used. With 5 GHz systems (IEEE 802.11a/n) any channel may be chosen, although it is advisable to have
1 channel between two neighbour channels to avoid noise interference from the neighbour channels.
If there is a non-Wi-Fi interfering source in the frequency band e.g. alarm systems on 2.4 GHz, you must switch to manual channel selection on the
access point. In setups with a large number of access points manual channel selecting may be a good idea.
Channel re-planning should be carried out if the customer has problems with the Wireless Network.
Fault finding and troubleshooting on Wi-Fi
If the wireless network does not work satisfactory, you need to find out what causes the problem in the wireless network. The software tool WiSpy DBx or a channel re-planning, can be used to find the faults. Please find information in “Wi-Spy DBx” on page 50.
Channel re-planning
The problem could arise from interference from electronic devices operating in the 2.4 GHz wireless range present in the customer’s home or
nearby. The problem could also be interference from neighbouring access points.
By default the Network Link router is configured for ‘Auto Channel Selection’.
This means that if there is any change in the wireless environment causing heavy interference in the channel selected, the access point in the
Network Link router should automatically move to another less populated channel. This should happen within 20 minutes. The access point cannot
see interference from non-Wi-Fi radio signals, for example alarm systems and wireless surveillance cameras.
Channel re-planning should be carried out using the inSSIDer tool. If it is not possible to find a less loaded channel, it is a good idea to change the
position of the access point. The Site Survey tool Wi-Spy DBx can also be used, in order to see interference from non-Wi-Fi signals.

This chapter explains different types of Internet connections and how to setup the Bang & Olufsen Network depending on the type of connection.
This makes it easier to choose an Internet connection from the options available.
Technologies used in access equipment and protocols delivered by the access provider are changing and improving rapidly. It must be investigated
invididually which solution offers the needed capacity. The access providers often offers test solutions to measure or monitor the capacity of the
provided solutions. Also observe that compression technologies developes fast regarding how delivery ot the content. Bear in mind that the home
installation also plays a role in distribution and use of capacity. This is e.g. depending on connections made wired ore wireless.
This method of connecting to the Internet is the oldest and slowest method.
The advantage is that it is available in all places which also receive phone service. To use this type of connection a phone line must be connected to
the computer and a modem is used to communicate through the phone line. While the computer uses the phone line, the phone line cannot be
used to make calls. Therefore, many people use a second line dedicated directly to their dial-up connection.
The Multimedia over Coax Alliance develops specifications for home networking over in-home coaxial cable, which is commonly used for antenna
connections to TVs, radios, and cable TV.
The goal of the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) is to facilitate home networking on existing coaxial cable in the 1 GHz microwave band,
using Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing modulation. This cable can be used for data connections to televisions, set-top boxes, and other
entertainment devices without the need for new connections. The MoCA technology makes it possible to distribute high-quality multimedia
content and high-speed data.
MoCA is a non-profit mutual-benefit corporation with the purpose of developing and promoting specifications for the transport of digital
entertainment and information content over coaxial cable. MoCA members have agreed, to license under reasonable and nondiscriminatory
(RAND) terms, any intellectual property required for member companies used to implement the MoCA Specification.
Although MoCA today is an open standard, there is only one supplier of MoCA chip sets.
WiMAX is the abbreviation for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. WiMAX is a telecommunication technology that provides fixed
and fully mobile Internet access.

DSL is an abbreviation of Digital Subscriber Line, and is a family of technologies that provide digital data transmission over local telephone network
using copper wiring. A unifying term is xDSL and varieties are ADSL, ADSL2+, VDSL, SDSL etc.
This method of connection is the fastest available for most private users. Fibre optic Internet connections work in the same way as DSL or Cable
connections.
As with other high speed lines, the phone, the television, and the computer can be used at the same time. The fibre optics is a faster connection
than both DSL and cable.
Cellular Broadband (3G/HSDPA/4G)
The cellular broadband is very useful when there is a need for mobile access to the Internet. The coverage is often good in highly populated areas
and it varies from country to country. 3G USB modems for lap tops has also become very popular. It can for example be used for connecting to the
Internet on a boat, when it is near the coast.
Fibre
DSL
Satellite
Internet over Satellite (IoS) allows access to the Internet via a satellite that orbits the earth. A satellite is placed at a static point above the earth’s
surface, in a fixed position. Because of the enormous distances signals must travel from the earth up to the satellite and back again, IoS is slightly
slower than high-speed terrestrial copper connections or fibre optic cables. Internet over Satellite can be used e.g. on a boat.

The Bang & Olufsen passive infrastructure concept ensures that one cable type can be used for transporting analogue signals like Power Link and
Master Link as well as digital signal for Network Link, Ethernet and HDMI video distribution. Additionally it includes data transmission for control of
the products.
The installation concept is based on Cat 7/Class F double shielded cable that has a very high capability for future use as well as a high resistance
towards a noisy environment.
The following part of the BeoLink Manual deals with the installation principles of the passive installation concept.
To ensure a reliable system, it is important to follow a few guidelines during installation.
When securing cables you must take care not to pull cable binders too tight.
This can crush and damage the twisted cables causing a lowered bandwidth or
cable failure.
If mounting a Network Link installation or product cable directly onto the wall please use cable clips to avoid damaging the cable:
- 8 mm cable clip for Network Link installation cable
- 6 mm cable clip for Network Link product cable
The distance between mains AC power cables and Network Link installation cables must be greater than 50 mm (2”) to avoid electromagnetic
disturbance. Network Link installation cable must not run in the same conduit/cable duct as the mains AC power cable if using cable management
systems such as flex tubing or conduit/cable ducts.
Remember to use proper pull sleeve when pulling cable in tubes. If necessary use proper pulling compound. Do not use any kind of soap that can
damage cables over time.
It is allowed to install Cat cable, Master Link cable, Power Link cable, IR-cable outdoor. In such case it must be protected against sunlight/UV light.
Some cables can be extended by adding extensions to the delivered cable or by replacing with other cable. See instructions for each cable.
Note: Never use soldering when extending cables and never use loose cable connectors. Instead use the recommended junction boxes.
Note: Network Link cables and Cat cables must run unbroken between two plugs/sockets.

Noise reduction - Power Link
Original cables and connectors
Passive Infrastructure - Cable management/handling
If the building/house is placed in an area with a lot of magnetic or electrical noise, a nanoperm coil
can be used to significantly reduce the impact.
The coil is available as part number 6710038.
Place the coil somewhere between the Power Link output and the wall inlet RJ45.
The Power Link cable is arranged with 9 windings on the coil as seen in the illustration.
Unoriginal cables and connectors exists both for Master Link cables and Power Link cables.
An increased number of fault reports has been experienced - caused by installations made with unoriginal cables.
Examination of unoriginal cables show inferior quality in design and material used - cables are not in compliance with the Bang & Olufsen
standards and requirements. Examinatons are made by an independant test facility.
Findings: Missing or uneven isolation layers in the cables may cause data interference, signal dropout or even shortcircuit. Thin and uneven tin
layers allow corrosion to occur.
It is strongly recommended to use original cables and conectors fowhen making installations provided by Bang & Olufsen.

Installation principles
Grounding - rules for Grounding
! Grounding !
Important !
Rules for grounding (earthing) must be followed closely.
Passive Infrastructure - Installation principles - Grounding
It is very important to ground the installation in order to eliminate any possible electrical hazard and to avoid noise in the loudspeakers.
All Network Link Cat 7/Class F and Cat 6/Class E installation concept components are shielded.
If not grounded properly the customer can experience an electrical shock!
Always use the ground from an electrical mains installation.
Always use the galvanic isolator if an external antenna signal or cable TV (CATV) is connected to the system. See page 125.

Always remember that grounding of a Class 1 product is very important. Grounding through Cat 7/Class F and Cat 6/Class E cable is not sufficient.
Class 1 products must be grounded according to rules of authorities. The Cat 7/Class F and Cat 6 /Class E shield and accompanied connections are
not rated to function as safety ground, carrying the current needed to blow the mains fuse.
Primary goal of earthing/grounding
The primary goal of earthing/grounding is to protect the installation from
electrostatic discharge and to protect the customer from electrical shock
from the sum of leakage current from all the equipment connected to the
network. The Network Link distribution centre must be connected to
existing earth grounding installation in the building.
Example of structured grounding of Cable Distribution Frame/ Cabinet / 19”
rack and galvanic isolator of antenna signal is shown in the illustration.

Passive Infrastructure - Installation principles - Technical room - Cabinets/19” rack
It is often a desire that the products like TV, audio products and loudspeakers are visible, whereas all other equipment shall be hidden.
For small installations discrete cabinets may be used and if possible a technical room is preferred to house all additional equipment. This covers
Bang & Olufsen products that are part of linking the products together and to perform as desired. Additionally equipment are Cable Distribution
Frames, Patch Modules, Network Link Brackets, 3rd party products, routers, switches, matrixes etc.
In certain cases it might seem practically to place equipment and devices (e.g. junction boxes, BeoLink Passive etc.) in a different place than the
technical room, cabinet and so on. It is strongly recommended not to place such equipment at the loft and the like; see page 76.
Note: the temperature may not exceed 40ºC or fall below 10ºC.
All cabling leads back to a central place. This could typically be a technical room, equipment closet or another appropriate location.
19” racks are recommended and are ordered form a local dealer. Advantages due to sufficient space for a number of important items such as:
24 port switch,
Server,
MLGW,
Switch matrix equipment,
Patch Modules,
Network Link Brackets,
Possibilities for expansion,
Well structured installation environment.
69
In case of large installations, it is possible to place more distribution centres in an installation (e.g. one on each floor).
For Master Link: there must be a connection from centre to centre.
For Power Link: is done locally on each floor.
For Network Link: one router and a switch (and if appropriate a switch on each floor) used for the connection between the products.
For Ethernet:
a switch must be placed on each floor and the ‘input’ cable must come from the router that provides the Internet connection.
Cabinets are equipped with Network Link Brackets matching the cabinet type (see page 121) in which Patch Modules are mounted (see
page 122).
Also two types of wall cabinets are available; see page 121.
- In-wall ‘flush mounted’.
- Surface mounted..
Both cabinets are available in two heights.

2 pair of speakers can be connected to one module.
Example of how to wire a Power Link Patch Module; see
illustration.
A subwoofer is often connected directly to the TV and
placed near to the TV, however the subwoofer may be
placed elsewhere and consequently the wiring may run via
the Cable Distribution Frame where it is patched using the
connectors in the bracket of the Cable Distribution Frame.
19” rack or Cabinets used as cable distribution frame may be equipped with Patch Module for Power Link and Master Link (see page 122) and
the appropriate number of RJ45 wall outlet sockets placed in cabinet brackets (page 122).

Positioning of IR-receiver
The IR-receiver must be positioned so that there is nothing
preventing the reception of IR signals from a Bang & Olufsen
remote control unit.
When it is decided where to position an IR-receiver, it must
be considered that it is not possible to activate more than
one receiver at the same time by the remote control.
The illustration shows that IR-receiver 3 is correctly
positioned, while receiver 1 could unintentionally be
activated from room 2. Receiver 1 must instead be
positioned as shown for receiver 2.
See also page 77 regarding option settings.

75
The receiver must not be positioned in direct sunlight or direct artificial light (e.g spotlights) or in the vicinity of products that produce electric noise
(e.g. a sound attenuator or a plasma display), as such positioning could reduce the sensitivity of the receiver (= shorter remote control distance).
If the receiver is positioned outdoors, you must be aware that it will not work at temperatures above +55ºC or below 0ºC. If there is a risk of the
temperature being outside this range, it must be possible to disconnect the IR-receiver using a switch, as it might otherwise prevent operation of
the whole system.
It is often a good idea to position the receiver near a door, as this makes local operation (optional) easy when you enter or leave the room.
Note: IR-eyes are available in more models, with/without operation buttons; with/without autocontrast.

Note: wires must never be soldered to the AMP barrel terminals in the Master Link Junction Box.
1 Used for cable length adjustment, e.g. from 10 m/ 33 ft to
8.5 m/ 28 ft.
2 For cable colour change in visible cable installations.
For aesthetic reasons all ML cables with plugs are black.
When making visible installations, it can be desirable to use
grey cabling along the walls, and the transition from black
to grey is easily achieved using a junction box.
3 Connection between products. (See figure 3 below)
There can be a maximum of 4 ML cables per Maser Link Junction Box.

1 For easy connection.
- Easier cabling
- Easier to link more rooms on the same Master Link string
- Eliminating errors such as loss of option settings
2 All cables must apply to standard Master Link cable lengths
3 Connection between products.
There can be up to six products per Master Link Distributor.
Note: To avoid problems with subsequent deadlock, always
disconnect all Master Link products in the setup from mains before plugging Master Link Cables into the Master Link Distributor.

Note: If the option programming is not performed correctly, there will be errors in operation.
Option 4 used in page 10 can also be used if there are no
walls separating a two rooms, and the product positioning in
these rooms means that operation in one of the rooms leads
to operation of products in another room.
By setting the link room products to option 4, allow the
rooms to be used independently of one another, as a link
room product set to option 4 only receives information from
the remote control if the link key is activated.
See page 79, about setting up Beo4 for a product set to
option 4.
All link room products and link room kits using the Master
Link connection can be used in this type of setup – except of
BeoLink Video that is not dealt with in this handbook.

A separate Beo4 remote control can be set in link mode to handle a specific product. This is used e.g. in where 2 TVs are placed close to each
other that they can receive codes at the same time from the same remote control. The products can be separate from each other control wise by
setting one of the products in Option 4. If a dedicated Beo4 is not set in constant link mode the TV that is set in Option 4 can only be controlled
by first pressing LINK in front of all commends.

The LED tester consists of two boxes and two Master Link cables; see illustration.
- The main box connects to the Master Link system. When turned On, the main box sends an
electric pulse through each individual core in the Master Link cable.
- The LED box can then be connected to the remaining Master Link connections one by one. A
range of LEDs will light up as the main box sends the pulses through the individual cores. By this
it is possible to see if there is an end -to-end connection in all cores and thus locate the defective
link (e.g. junction box or wall socket). If an LED is weakly illuminated it means that there is a
poor connection. There is also an output and input for testing Power Link cables.

The illustration shows an example of a typical Master Link system connection.
- Disconnect all products before starting the test, as it would otherwise be impossible to circuit test the cables due to short circuits in the products.
- Connect the main box e.g. to the Master Link cable in the main room.
- Connect the LED box to all Master Link connections - one by one - until the junction box causing the problem (in this example there are only
junction boxes) is located. The extra Master Link cables supplied can be used to replace the Product Cable, if that a cable between a product and a
wall socket is suspected to be faulty.

Note: Ø 3.5 mm / 0.14” cables with RJ45 plug has pin 3 and 7 short circuit.
Power Link cable - general information
Power Link cable exists in many variants. Three variants can be ordered at present:
- The Ø 5.0 mm / 0.2” cable (with 6 wires, of which 2 pairs are foiled and the entire cable has a braided shield),.
Used with all current loudspeakers and also in lengths over 10 m / 33 ft.
Obsolete Power Link cables
Note: Other Power Link cables than the above mentioned are obsolete, although they of course may be used in former installations.
In certain cases the obsolete cables do not fulfil the needed requirements when used with newer products, and must consequently be replaced
with newer cables.

Tool A for removal of the cable jacket
Tool B for making connections with the inner wires of the cablle and
Tool C for crimping the chassis ferrule.
2 Use tool A to remove 35 mm / 1.x” of the cable cajket. This is done by pushing the cable through the
small hle in the tool in such a way that the cutter is on the left (as illustrated). Turn the tool in the direction
of MIN (anti-clockwise) a cople of times, and then pull off the jacket.
3 Remove the white foil.
4 Pull the black cover and the chassis ferrule onto the cable. The wider end of the ferrule must point toards
the plug − cable end.
5 Unwind the twisted pairs. Remove the 3 foiled screens. Use a small sharp tool, e.g. a small screwdriver to
trim away the foil. Tear outside first - this makes it easier to remove the foiled screens with your fingers.
Straighten each wire to make sure they do not twist.

Troubleshooting LAN networks and Network Link networks
The following checks may be usefull when troubleshooting a LAN network and a Network Link network.
140
- Check cables. Use an ethernet cable tester and remote ID locators to test that installations and product cables are having the correct connection;
see page 82.
- Check that routers, switches and other network equipment is supplied with power; i.e. check mains cables, Power Adaptors supply the correct
amont of voltage and current, UPS, etc.
- When a B&O recommended Router is used, ensure that settings and subneting is made correctly; see page 46.
- Check that hosts (i.e. PCs, TVs etc.) are having an IP address inside the subnet used; see page 45 and page 46.
Example for the B&O Recommended Router: 192.168.100.1 with subnet mask 255.255.255.0.
Examples for the ISP router: could be either of the following adresses: 192.168.1.x; 192.168.0.x; 172.16.0.x; 10.0.0.x and typically with at subnet
mask 255.255.255.0.
- Check that the DHCP server is set up correctly; see page 46.
- If ping of an IP address is possible but it is not possible to enter a name for the destination, then there might be a DNS server problem or the DHCP
server is set up in-correctly; see page 46. DNS server IP adresses may be 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 (Note: these addresses are for Google DNS servers).
- Check that the IP address for the default gateway is set correctly: i.e. the address of the router e.g. 192.168.100.1; see page 46 - the address
entered under Router Details.
- If more than one wireless Access Point using the 2.4 GHz band is used, ensure that Channel field is set to Auto; see page 47.
Troubleshooting HDMI networks
-
-
The following checks may be usefull when troubleshooting an HDMI network.
Troubleshooting - HDMI networks
141
Check the LEDs of the room box (receiver boxes and transmitter boxes: Green LED must be lit - indicating it is power supplied. Yellow LED must
remain constant - indicating the connection is synchronized. If blinking is seen there is a connection issue.
Check that the correct HDMI In port is connected to the cable desired.
If one products is unstable or fails, swap HDMI In cable to an HDMI In port that works. If problem is solved the cable may be conected to a wrong
HDMI In port. If problem persists, check the cable from source to display.
Check cables. It is important that all Cat cables in a conection for HDMI signals from source to destination are all Cat 7 cables; i.e. the shield must
be connected all the way. If a Cat 5 cable is used e.g. in the patch pannel/distribution frame, the shield is interrupted, and the signal and
synchronization may be disturbed.
Use e.g. an Atlona HDMI test kit: KIT-PROHD3; see page 82. [To be ordered as usual for Atlona products].
The kit consists of:
- a 7” Portable Testing Monitor, AT-DIS7-PROHD, with resolution from 480p up to 1080p, 1920×1200 and 3D, and HDCP compliant with display
indicator and built-in speakers.
- a signal generator, AT-HD800, supporting 13 test patterns which includes 5 × 3D and over 20+ resolutions, and also reads EDID that allows to
view display capabilities (video and audio formats) HDMI in/HDMI for passthru EDID reading.
- an HDMI Recorder and Hot Plug Emulator, AT-HDSync, that read, copy or replicate almost any EDID.
- a rechargeable battery, AT-BAT-DIST7PRO, for the above two devices allowing up to 4 hours of use.
- a troubleshooting guide either included or that may be found on the home page: www.atlona.com.
The kit can test:
- HDMI cables.
- mixed cable installations where matrix’, room box’, HDMI cables and Cat cables are used.
- resolution.
- EDID.
- reveal synchronization issues.
Troubleshooting Master Link
Short circuit ML-sense
Troubleshooting - Master Link
142
The isolation method is the first course of action when troubleshooting a Master Link installation. Start by disconnecting the link rooms in order to
find out if the fault is in the main room or the link rooms. Then connect the link rooms one by one until the fault is discovered. This is a quick way
of finding out if the problem is in the main room, or identifying the link room that is the cause of the problem.
If there are no junction boxes in the system, you can also disconnect the link rooms by disconnecting the Master Link plug from the products.
Master Link
It is also possible to use the LED tester, which is a circuit tester used to locate poor connections and broken connections in an ML system. This
tester allows you to localise faults very quickly in the individual wires of the ML cables. All products must be disconnected while these tests are
done; see page 83.
In a system where two masters (e.g. BeoLink Converter
More than 20m
configured as master) are connected and where the total
BeoLink
length of the Master Link cable is over 20 m, you should
Converter
Datalink
Datalink
make a short-circuit in the Master Link cable; see details
below. This short circuit is incorporated into junction
boxes, so if the system includes a junction box you do
not need to create the short circuit.
The short circuit must be made between pin 3 (white/
blue) and pin 12 (pink) and can be made in one of the
products, in a wall socket, or by fitting a junction box. In
case of doubt the short circuit should be made on the ML cable regardless of the system setup.
Without the short circuit, the following faults can arise: All link audio functions work, but link video functions do not work.
Do you experience any of the following with
the Master Link system: The video jams (red bar
on the shield), humming in the front
loudspeakers, clicking in the rear loudspeakers
when they are not in use, humming in all
loudspeakers, or no communication between
A/V products?
If this is the case you should check whether the
aerial is grounded. If not, we recommend
creating a ground connection from here.

Troubleshooting - Master Link
If data- and data+ are not as indicated in “No transmission” and are unable to transmit, there may be a fault in the main room BeoVision or
BeoSound, as one of these supplies the voltage.
144
Note that with setups using the BeoLink Converter (ML/AAL converter) it is always the Master Link driver that supplies the voltage. If there are two
Master Link drivers in the system, one will configure itself as supply master when connected.
The fault is found using the isolation method. If the fault is not in one of the Master Link drivers, there is another unit pulling data either low or
high. There could also be a cable fault or connection fault. Data faults can also be read off in service mode, see section on service mode.
If the data is OK, proceed to reading the supply voltage, which must be as indicated under specifications. If the voltage is not OK, use the isolation
method until you find the faulty equipment or faulty connection.
One of the balanced sound signals is missing.
Data and supply voltage are OK. Measure the signal level for pin 13 to 16 in relation to the specifications. If the signal level is OK, there is a fault
with the link room product, possibly the converter box, cables or a connection fault.
Fault (b) No sound but operation OK
Possible cause
Fault (c) Playing is at half volume
Possible cause
No master Link ‘sense’ in a Master Link setup. Pin 3 does not send 8.5 to 15 V and the products are not ‘sensed’ by the Master in a Master Link
Setup.
Solution: Mount a Maser link Junction Box, Part. No. 3232170 (black), 3132220 (white), 3375189 (large black) - as a built-in shortcircuit is made

Fault (d) No reaction when selecting a source from another product
Possible cause
Service mode
Products with a display have a service mode where Master Link faults can be read off. Note that the fault reading indicates that there is a system
fault; this is not the same as saying there is a fault with the actual product where the fault message appears.
BeoLab 3500 and BeoVision Avant are examples of products with service mode. See service instructions for the individual product to find out how
you can access service mode and the possibilities provided by service mode.
The example of service mode below is from BeoLab 3500.
Troubleshooting - Master Link
ERROR 1: - Address configuration is impossible.
Fault with address configuration. No address was found, because there are too many units connected to the Master Link.
145
- Remove all products from the Master Link connection and reconnect them one by one other until the fault appears. Disconnect the product again.
ERROR 2: - Master Link data pulled low.
It is not possible to transmit on the Master Link because it is pulled low. This fault can arise if there is no Master Link driver circuit, or as a result of
a physical short circuit in the Master Link or in the data receiver circuit.
- Remove the products from the Master Link connection one by one and see if it starts again.
- Reset the faulty product and check the connection (cable/plug) and signal path (data receiver circuit). See section on repair tips for a description of
the data receiver circuit.
ERROR 3: - Master Link data pulled high.
It is not possible to transmit on the Master Link because it has been pulled high. This fault arises either because the pull-up resistance in the system
has become too small, or as a result of a fault in the data receiver circuit.
- Remove the products from the Master Link connection one by one and see if it starts again.
- Reset the faulty product, check if the Master Link cable is too long, and check the signal path (the data receiver circuit). See section on repair tips
for a description of the data receiver circuit.
ERROR 4: - Data collision on Master Link.
The data traffic on the Master Link has been unusually high, or a product is blocked and cannot receive data telegrams.
- Repeat the operating sequence.
- Remove the products from the Master Link connection one by one in order to find out which product is blocked. Reset the faulty product and
check the Master Link connection (cable/plug) and signal paths (the amplifiers in the data receiver circuit).

- When using BeoLab 4000, BeoLab 6000, BeoLab 8000 and older speakers in combination with BeoVision 11, BeoSystem 4, BeoVision Avant and
newer TVs using VideoEngine A3.
Power Link cables pick up interference from other cables such as the mains cable.
BeoLab 4000 MK I, BeoLab 6000 and BeoLab 8000 have an unballanced input in the Power Link connetion, whereas newer speakers have a semibalanced input making them more immune to picking up interference from other cables.
Decrease the interference by placing a Part No. 3376078 Semi-balanced PL Control Box in the setup. See page 71.
The box must be placed as close to the speakers as possible!
The side with one Power Link sockets is the output.
The side with two Power Link sockets is the input (can be looped to next speaker inlut).
The small connector on the input side is for the power supply (EU adapter 12 Vac/230 mA).
Remember to use Power Link MK III cable or never Power Link Product Cables - Ø 5.0 mm /0.2” types. If it is a sorround sound setup, you will need
more than one box as the box only has one stero Pwer Link input. (I.e.: one semi-balanced PL control box per speaker is needed).

Answer:
Can I connect two installation cables by soldering or using some sort of junction box?
No, that is not possible. Cat cable must run unbroken between two plugs/sockets.
Can Cat 7 cables be used for HDMI?
The New installation concept can also be used to transfer HDMI. One or two Cat 7 cables must be reserved for each HDMI connections
depending on technology used. Please note that additional active adapters are needed.
Can I use Network Link Product Cable as installation cable?
Yes. In situations where a thinner cable is required (e.g. if two cables are to be pulled in one conduit), however used for Ethernet the max length
to switch/router is 50 m (164 ft). For Master Link max 100 m (328 ft) can be Network Link Product Cable, the rest should be Network Link
Installation Cable.
Can I mount a connector on the Network Link Product Cable in the same way as I mount it on the Network Link Installation Cable?
Yes. This way it is possible to make an extension cord. The parts needed are RJ45 socket for wall outlet (part number 7221710/7221711) with
Network Link Installation Cable part number 6250027 (Ø 8 mm)), and RJ45 plug (part number 7221248) and Network Link Product Cable (part
number 6250028 (Ø 6.0 mm / 0.24”)).
Is it possible to see how much cable I have used in an installation?
Yes, the installation cable is marked with forth going m (metre) indication. This way one can read the number when installation work starts, and
then again when finished. The difference is the amount used for the installation.
Do Bang & Olufsen accept use of other types than the preferred Cat 7/Class F cables and connectors in an installation?
Bang & Olufsen cannot guarantee functionality with other types of cable/connector. An exception to this is LK LexCom Home/IHC net that also
has been tested/approved to carry Master Link and Power Link connections. Cables and connectors from different manufactures must not be
mixed in an installation.
Is it possible to crimp a RJ45 plug on Cat 7/Class F Network Link Installation Cable?
No, RJ45 plugs can only be crimped on Network Link Product Cable. Network Link Installation Cable is intended for wall installation.
Is it possible to crimp an RJ45 plug on existing Master Link or Power Link cables?
No, it will give reliability problems over time.

Answer
Can I use Cat 5e cables for installations?
We recommend Cat 7 cables, as they are double shielded (immune to disturbance) and ensure high data transmission speed. This is especially
important regarding video streaming. The recommendation is made to ensure a future-proof Bang & Olufsen solution, adapted to our future
products. In most cases, if customers already have installations with Cat 5e or Cat 6 cables, there will probably be no problems in connecting
Ethernet based products.
What can I do if I lose contact with the web user interface on my NAS?
After, for example, a power cut, the router might have given the NAS a new IP address. To avoid that IP addresses change over time, the router
can be set to always assign the same IP address to a certain MAC address, see document on BeoWise about DHCP reservation (BeoWise | Link |
Network Link | Network Link Active Infrastructure).
How can I check that the wireless connection is good enough to use?
Set up a Bang & Olufsen recommended router *) and check with inSSIDer (on a laptop) on the spot where the product should be placed. When
you measure the signal-to-noise ratio, the Signal must be 25 dBm higher than the noise. You also need to check with a frequency scanner (WiSpy) if there is interference from other sources, for example an alarm system. See “Channel selection/planning” on page 49 for further
information.
How can I make my customers aware that there is a risk that the wireless connection will change over time due to circumstances coming from
outside?
It is very important that you explain to customers that well-functioning wireless systems may develop problems at any given time for various
reasons. If, for example, a neighbour installs an alarm system, this may influence the performance of the customer’s wireless system. Especially if a
non-Wi-Fi system or a wireless system which uses the same frequency as the customer’s system is installed nearby, it will interfere with the
performance of the customer’s system. It is therefore only possible to guarantee the performance of the wireless system at the time of the
installation.
I already use Wi-Fi for my MacBook with an Apple Airport, can I use this with my BeoSound 5 Encore for wireless connections?
The Apple Airport is only working on 2.4 GHz and as the BeoSound 5 Encore work on 5 GHz, this will not work.
I already use Wi-Fi with an Apple Airport Extreme, can I use this with my BeoSound 5 or BeoSound 5 Encore for wireless connections?
Bang & Olufsen recommend setting up a separate router when the router from the ISP is not sufficiently stable in securing the desired
communication quality between the products in the setup*) to service the Bang & Olufsen products. However the Apple Airport Extreme is a dual
band router and will work with BeoSound 5 and BeoSound 5 Encore in most situations.
How can I access data on the NAS placed in the Bang & Olufsen Network Link subnet using my private PC.
On some NAS there is 2 LAN connections. If the free LAN connector is connected to the router for the existing network, then a PC or MAC can
access data on the NAS for music storage from the existing network.

Network Link is the recent and Structured wiring of video and audio products to a variety of sources and naturally also to the Internet by the help
of Cat 7 cables (digital transmission). Cables and traffic are organised using a router or switch as the centre of at star topology.
Master Link is a link method used to link between former Bang & Olufsen products (video and audio) by the use of Master Link cables (analogue
transmission).
Power Link is a link method used to link between Bang & Olufsen products to convey audio signals to stand-alone loudspeakers using Power Link
cables. (As some loudspeakers also have a link function in-built, that permits for remote controlling of the entire installation in the home.
Obsolete link method used in older Bang & Olufsen products. See the Master Link Handbook that is found via BeoWise.

Installation cable - horizontal cable
The in-wall cabling also named horizontal cabling between e.g. a technical room and other rooms in the building. The cables must be of the type
Cat 7 to meet the requirements for conveying high quality video and audio data. The cables are typically connected in Patch Module and network

Cat 7/Class F installation concept
General Terms - definitions
150
The new installation concept is based on Cat 7/Class F double shielded Ethernet cable. This will eventually replace Master Link and Power Link
cables. The new installation concept ensures backward compatibility at the same time as preparing for the new digital world. Cat 7/Class F double
shielded cable (S/FTP) has been selected because of its high bandwidth capability for future digital systems and for its resistance to noise when
used to carry analogue audio signals instead of Power Link cables when used with, for example, BeoLab 5 loudspeakers. The RJ45 plugs /jacks
used on the cables only fulfil Cat 6a level but still provides a capacity of 10 Gb/s sufficient for the future.
In this BeoLink Handbook the term Cat 7/Class F will be use for such cables, as the actual cable complies to this standard and despite the applied
connectors degrade the entire cable/connector solution to Cat 6a/Class EA. Cat 7 compliant connectors may later be added when desired.
In this handbook the TIA/EIA 568 B standard is used for colour coding of wires in the Cat connectors ; see page 150.
To ensure high flexibility all connections must be wired in a Cable Distribution Frame; see page 121.
Connectors for wall plates are available in two versions. Choose a straight or angled Network Link connector depending on space behind the wall
plate and placement of conduit.
Face plates differ in every country. Please contact your local wall plate supplier for further information.
T568A
The difference between these two connectors lies in the way the installation cable is mounted in the wall:
- Straight - where the cable goes directly into the back of the connector.
- Angled - where the cable goes into the side of the connector.

The specification for Category 5 cable was defined in ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A, with clarification in TSB-95. These documents specified performance
characteristics and test requirements for frequencies of up to 100 MHz. Cable types, connector types and cabling topologies are defined by TIA/
EIA-568-B. The cable is terminated in either the T568A scheme or the T568B scheme. Canada and Australia use the T568A standard, and the
United States commonly uses T568B scheme.[citation needed] The two schemes work equally well and may be mixed in an installation so long as
the same scheme is used on both ends of each cable. Nearly always, 8P8C modular connectors, often referred to as RJ45, are used for connecting
category 5 cable. The USOC/RJ-61 standard is used in multi-line telephone connections.
