Extending Ethernet

Extend your network far beyond the normal limits of Ethernet

Westermo offer solutions to allow you to ignore the conventional Ethernet boundaries for copper cable. By design, a standard Ethernet network has a transmission limit of 100 metres over UTP copper cables. Tthe Wolverine Ethernet Extenders have been developed to allow you to go much further and on many other kinds of cable.

The Wolverine series utilises SHDSL technology on twisted pair cables to establish a high-speed remote connection between two Ethernet Networks. Instead of needing to install fibre or radio links, the SHDSL technology can provide a cost-effective solution by using existing cables. Data rates up to 15.3 Mbit/s and an operating distance of up to 15 kilometres (9.3 miles) at lower data rates can be achieved.

WeOS can deliver unique IP security functionality for this class of product e.g. a multiport DMZ can be constructed by utilizing the internal port based firewall function. Remote secure access to a network can be provided using encrypted VPNs. For resilience, a ring of Wolverines can be created using the FRNT protocol, or by using OSPF, the Wolverine can form part of an enterprise network.
