The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has driven businesses to upgrade their existing systems to IP-based networks and connect to more devices and applications, such as video surveillance, in order to achieve centralized management. How to simplify long distance networking deployments has become a challenge for engineers. To address this issue, Moxa has developed the IEX-408E-2VDSL2 Ethernet extender switch, the latest addition to the DSL extender family, which supports Ethernet extension over twisted-pair copper wiring, allowing users to leverage legacy infrastructure or existing industry-specific cables. With the IEX-408E-2VDSL2, you can easily tap into the opportunities of the IIoT, while saving deployment time and costs. Download the Reference Book to read several IEX-408E-2VDSL2 case studies.



Product Close-Up


Benefits

Easy Installation

The IEX series has an automatic CO/CPE negotiation function that enables plug-n-play, and is configuration-free for easy deployment.

High Reliability

The IEX series supports Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain for millisecond-level recovery and supports a bypass function for multiple failure tolerance. In addition, the smart speed feature intelligently detects environmental changes for higher speed connections.

Easy Management

The IEX series has LED indicators for easy on-site troubleshooting. Users can also remotely manage the connection status via MXview network management software.

Solutions

  • The IEX-402 DSL extenders support easy-extension (P2P) over long distances through existing copper wires
  • Easy installation with auto CO/CPE negotiation

Case Study

Secure Traffic Signal Control and a CCTV Monitoring System in a Harbor

The project along a key harbor corridor in a major American city needed to update a monitoring system that would utilize existing copper wires to carry data over significantly longer distances than was previously possible. As this project needed to integrate more systems into one network, serial networks were no longer sufficient to support the expanded network, which is why IEX series DSL extenders were installed to support more bandwidth over longer distances.


Solutions

  • The IEX-402 allows users to extend Ethernet over existing cables
  • Easy installation with auto CO/CPE negotiation
  • -40 to 75°C wide operating temperature and rugged design for harsh environments

Case Study

Upgrading Subsea Oil & Gas Control Application with Existing Wires

For subsea control applications, great efforts are made to install industry-specific cables under the sea. In this project, the IEX series DSL extenders were installed to leverage the existing infrastructure to reduce deployment costs and time spent installing as well as to withstand the harsh oil & gas environments.


Solutions

  • Supports long distance point-to-point transmission over existing copper wires
  • Easy installation with auto CO/CPE negotiation

Case Study

Repurposing 2-Wire Copper for an Alert System

In order to increase patient safety, a hospital in Hong Kong set up an IP-based emergency alert system in the bathrooms on the ward, which was connected to the facility’s advanced emergency network. Over the same network, an IP CCTV surveillance system was installed that would activate after the alarm was triggered. As hospitals frequently deal with life and death situations, the hospital installed IEX DSL extenders to extend Ethernet over existing copper wires in order to minimize disruption to the lifesaving equipment in the hospital.


Solutions

  • Long distance Ethernet extension up to 3 km with up to 100 Mbps data rate
  • Simple installation to extend Ethernet with telephone-grade wires
  • The IEX-408E combines an Ethernet switch and a DSL extender to greater networking flexibility

Case Study

Integrated Crossroads Traffic Signal Control and CCTV Monitoring Systems

Nowadays, governments are upgrading to IP-based traffic signal systems so they can manage and monitor the traffic status over the Internet. To save costs, the ideal option is to use a device that supports a DSL option, such as Moxa’s IEX-408E Ethernet extender switch that can utilize existing wires between intersections, which support long distance communications as well as large bandwidth to smoothly process all the data on the network.
