VC-231 Datasheet
VC-231
Ethernet over VDSL2 Converter
CO mode is at central side.
The CPE or CO mode can be adjusted by
using a built-in DIP switch. For point-to-point connection, a CPE mode
VC-231 and a CO mode VC-231 must be set up as a pair of converters
to perform the connection.
Provides Superior Upstream and Downstream Transmission Performance
The VC-231 also defines symmetric band plan for the transmission
of upstream and downstream signals, the band plan performs higher
transmission quality in short range for central side (CO) in symmetric
mode. In all, when the VC-231 is in profile 17a operation mode, it
High Performance Ethernet over VDSL Solution
The PLANET VC-231 is an Ethernet-over-VDSL2 Converter with high
performance. It is designed based on two core networking technologies,
Ethernet and VDSL2 (Very-high-data-rate Digital Subscriber Line 2). The
provides long distance transmit with Ultra-high performance to the
pervasive telephone line network, and when the VC-231 is in 30a
operation mode, it gives short distance transmits with upstream and
downstream transmission giving wire speed performance.
VDSL2 technology offers the fastest data transmission speed over
existing copper telephone lines without rewiring. The VC-231
supports ultra-high performance to the pervasive telephone line network
Key Features
with up to 100/100Mbps symmetric data rate within 300m and 50/2Mbps
for 1.4km long range connections.
• Cost-Effective VDSL2 Profile 17a/30a CO / CPE bridge solution

Implements with Existing Telephone Copper Wires
The VC-231 is also a Long Reach Ethernet (LRE) converter providing
one RJ-45 Ethernet port and one RJ-11 phone jack that is for VDSL2
connection. By using the additional Splitter from the VC-231 kit, the

100/100Mbps symmetric data transmission, the VC-231 enables many
Multi-Media services to work on local Internet, such as VOD (Video on
Demand), Voice over IP, Video phone, IPTV, Internet caching server,
distance education, and so on.
Easy Installation
The Ethernet-over-VDSL2 Converter features plug-and-play and is fully
compatible with all kinds of network protocols. Moreover, the operating
status of each individual port and the whole system can be watched
via the rich diagnostic LEDs on the front panel. The VC-231 offers two
modes, CPE and CO, for application: CPE mode is used at client side and

Applications
Ethernet Distance Extension
Two VC-231 acting as a stand-alone pair is good for Ethernet distance extension over existing telephone wires. With just one pair of AWG-24
copper wire, you can easily connect two Ethernet networks together with the data rate of maximum 100/100Mbps. With the additional splitter, the
telephone service can still be used while the VC-231 CO/CPE is in operation. The two solutions listed below are typical applications for the Ethernet
over VDSL2 Converter.

MTU / MDU / Hospitality Solution
The VC-231 is a perfect solution to quickly provide cost-effective yet high speed network services to multi-unit buildings such as residential buildings
(multi-dwelling units), commercial (multi-tenant units) buildings, hotels or hospitals. By utilizing the existing telephony infrastructure, network
installation is straightforward and requires no new wiring. With up to 100/100Mbps transmission, Video on Demand, IP telephony and various
broadband services can be easily provided.

Applications
Last Mile of FTTx Deployment
The VC-231 is an ideal solution for FTTx (Fiber to the Building, Fiber to the Campus or Fiber to the Node) applications. It supports high bandwidth
VDSL2 over existing telephone wires in the “last mile” from the ISP / Telecom / Service provider’s fiber node to the buildings and customers´ houses.
The 10/100Mbps port of VC-231 can be directly connected to a PC or to Ethernet devices such as Ethernet Switches or Broadband Routers. It is
excellent for phone line network built under Internet because every room or house could use the existing phone line to transmit data through the
Internet and the whole building could share the Internet to the wider area network with minimum cost.
