1.2 Ethernet over VDSL2 Bridge Description
PLANET’s state-of-the-art Ethernet-over-VDSL2 products are
based on two core networking technologies: Ethernet and
VDSL2 (Very-high-data-rate Digital Subscriber Line
2). This technology offers the absolute fastest possible data
transmission speeds over existing copper telephone lines or
coaxial cables without the need for rewiring.
The VC-201A / VC-202A / VC-204 Ethernet Over VDSL2
Converter has a switching architecture with RJ-45 10/100Mbps
Ethernet port and one asymmetric or symmetric Ethernet over
VDSL port (Asymmetric means upstream and downstream
rate are not the same and Symmetric means upstream and
downstream rate are similar) – the VDSL port can be RJ-11
connector (VC-201A / VC-204) or BNC Connector (VC-202A).
The VC-201A / VC-202A / VC-204 can be set to Central Office
(CO) or Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) mode via a DIP
switch. When VC-20X-CO (VC-201A / VC-204) is connected with
other VC-20X-CPE (VC-201A / VC-204) device, the performance
will up to 100/55Mbps for asymmetric data rate within 200m
and up to 25/4Mbps for asymmetric data rate at 1.6km.
The VC-202A (BNC) performance is up to 100/65Mbps for
asymmetric data rate within 200m and up to 25/5Mbps Mbps
for asymmetric data rate at 3.0km. This capability is ideal for
use as an Ethernet extender for your existing Ethernet network.
PLANET VDSL2 Converter provides a much cheaper replacement
and smooth migration for existing Long Reach Ethernet (LRE)
networks.
The cable specifications of the connection are listed as following:
l 10Base-T, Category 3, 4 or 5 UTP
l 100Base-TX, Category 5, 5e or 6 UTP
l Ethernet over VDSL2, Twisted-pair telephone wires
l Ethernet over VDSL2, Coaxial cable
The two drawings pictures are typical application for the Ethernet
over VDSL2 Converter.
Note
Slave device (CPE) must connect to Master device
(CO) through the telephone wire or coaxial cable.
It is not allow connecting like Master to Master or
Slave to Slave. To define the VC-201A / VC-202A /
VC-204 to CO or CPE, please refer to section 2.2.1

• Interleaved mode provides impulse noises protection with
a duration less than 250 us. Interleaved mode has a
maximum end to end latency of 10m sec.
n Band Plan
• User can switch the Band Plan either Symmetric or Asymmetric by their own. When Symmetric is selected that
provides better upstream performance, when Asymmetric
is selected that provides better downstream performance.
Refer to table above for details.

connection only (Master device to Slave device) and has
equipped with 2 RJ-11 connectors for VDSL port. One for
voice device connection (like telephone) and the other one for
network link connection.
Depending on the quality of telephone line, the maximum
distance of one VDSL segment is 1.6km (5250ft) with AWG
24 telephone wires.
l VC-202A: 1 BNC connector and supports 50 or 75 ohm cable.
Depending on the quality of coaxial cable, the maximum
distance of one VDSL segment is 3.0km (9842ft) with 5C
coaxial cable.
The distance will change by the quality of telephone wires and
coaxial cables.

hospitality environment.
The Multi-port Master (for example, VC-820M VDSL2 Switch)
need to be placed in the wiring center (MDF room) and connect
to the telephone line system, on the other hand, need to install
a Slave (VC-201A / VC-204 CPE) converter on the individual
client side and connect to the Multi-port Master through the
telephone lines.
When deciding where to put the converter then you must
ensure:
l It is accessible and cables can be connected easily.
l Cabling is away from sources of electrical noise such as
radios, transmitters and power lines and fluorescent lighting
fixtures.
l Water or moisture can not enter the Converter.

5. Troubleshooting
SYMPTOM:
VDSL LNK LED does not light after wire is connected to the
VDSL port.
CHECKPOINT:
1.Verify the length of the wire connected between two VC-201A
/ VC-204 is not more than 2.0km and VC-202A is not more
than 3.0km. Please also try to adjust the DIP switch of VC201A / VC-202A / VC-204 to other SNR mode.
2.Please note you must use one VC-201A / VC-202A / VC-204
with CO mode and the other VC-201A / VC-202A / VC-204
with CPE mode, connect to each other to make it work.
SYMPTOM:
TP LED does not light after cable is connected to the port.
CHECKPOINT:
1.Verify you are using the Cat.5, 5e or 6 cables with RJ-45
connector to connect to the port.
2.If your device (like LAN card) supports to Auto-Negotiation,
please try to modify at a fixed speed of your device by manually.
3.Check the converter and the connected device’s power are ON
or OFF.
4.Check the port’s cable is firmly seated in its connectors in the
switch and in the associated device.
5.Check the connecting cable is good.
6.Check the power adapters are functional, including the
connecting device.

6. FAQ
Q1: What voltage that VC-201A / VC-202A / VC-204 used?
A1: 5V DC, 2A
Q2: What is VDSL2?
A2: VDSL2 (Very High-Bit-Rate Digital Subscriber Line 2),
G.993.2 is the newest and most advanced standard of
xDSL broadband wire line communications.
Designed to support the wide deployment of Triple Play
services such as voice, data, high definition television
(HDTV) and interactive gaming, VDSL2 enable operators and carrier to gradually, flexibly, and cost efficiently
upgrade exiting xDSL-infrastructure.
Q3: What is the best distance for VC-201A / VC-202A / VC204?
A3: In order to guarantee the stability and better quality of
network, so we would suggest the distance within 1.6 kilometer is the best for VC-201A / VC-204 and 3.0kilometer
for VC-202A.
Q4: What is the best date rate for VC-201A / VC-202A / VC204?
A4: We provide the data rate of the VC-201A / VC-204 is up
to 100Mbps/55Mbps and the VC-202A is up to 100Mbps/
65Mbps (downstream / upstream) in 200 meters
Q5: Can VC-201 compatible with VC-201A / VC-204?
A5: Currently NO. Although VC-201 (profile 12a) and VC-201A
/ VC-204 (profile 17a) are base on ITU-T G.993.2 VDSL2,
but with different Profiles, so far they are not compatible
with each other.
32
Q6: Can VC-202 compatible with VC-202A?
A6: Currently NO. Although VC-202 (profile 12a) and VC-202A
(profile 17a) is base on ITU-T G.993.2 VDSL2, but with
different Profiles, so far they are not compatible with each
other.
Q7: What is SNR and what’s the effect?
A7: In analog and digital communications, Signal-to-Noise Ratio,
often written SNR, is a measure of signal strength relative
to background noise. The ratio is usually measured in decibels (dB).
In digital communications, the SNR will probably cause a
reduction in data speed because of frequent errors that
require the source (transmitting) computer or terminal to
resend some packets of data. SNR measures the quality of
a transmission channel over a network channel. The greater
the ratio, the easier it is to identify and subsequently isolate
and eliminate the source of noise.
Generally speaking, the higher SNR value gets better line
quality, but lower performance.
Q8: What is band plan and what’s the effect?
A8: VDSL2 defines multiple band plans and configuration modes
(profiles) to allow asymmetric and symmetric services in
the same binder (by designated frequency bands) for the
transmission of upstream and downstream signals. User
has the ability to select fixed band plan. When Symmetric
is selected that provides better downstream performance,
when Asymmetric is selected that provides better upstream
performance.
