1.2 Introduction to Ethernet over VDSL2 Bridge
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 without the need for
rewiring.
The VC-201A / VC-204 Ethernet Over VDSL2 Converter has a
switching architecture with RJ-45 10/100Mbps Ethernet port
and one symmetric Ethernet over VDSL port (symmetry means
upstream and downstream rate are the same or similar) – the
VDSL port can be RJ-11 connectors. The VC-201A / VC-204 can
be set to CO mode or CPE mode via a DIP switch. When the
VC-20X-CO is used to connect to the other VC-20X-CPE as a
standalone pair, up to 100/55Mbps asymmetric data rate within
200m and up to 25/4Mbps asymmetric data rate at 1.6km.
This capability is ideal for use as an Ethernet extender for your
existing Ethernet network.
PLANET’s VDSL2 Converter solution 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:
n 10BASE-T, Category 3, 4 or 5 UTP
n 100BASE-TX, Category 5 UTP
n Ethernet over VDSL, Twisted-pair telephone wires
The two drawings listed below are typical application for the
Ethernet Over VDSL2 Converter.
Note
Slave device (CPE) must connect to Master device
(CO) through the telephone wire. Slave cannot
connect to Slave and Master cannot connect to
Master. To define the VC-201A / VC-204 to CO or
CPE, please refer to section 2.2.1 for more detail.

6. FAQ
Q1: What voltage that VC-201A / VC-204 used?
A1: 5VDC, 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-204?
A3: In order to guarantee the stability and better quality of
network, so we would suggest the distance in 1.6 kilometer
is the best for VC-201A / VC-204.
Q4: What is the best date rate for VC-201A / VC-204?
A4: We provide the data rate of the VC-201A / VC-204 is up to
100Mbps/55Mbps (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.
27
Q6: What is SNR and what’s the effect?
A6: 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.
Q7: What is band plan and what’s the effect?
A7: 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.
