STATUS: By Order
WARRANTY: 3 years



  • Overview
  • High Performance VDSL2 Data Rate over Existing Phone Lines
    PLANET VC-2400MR Series is a 24-Port VDSL2 Managed CO (central office) Switch perfectly for the networking applications of telecom, ISP (Internet Service Provider), SI (System Integration), IP surveillance provider and more.. It is based on two core networking technologies, Ethernet and VDSL2 (Very-high-data-rate Digital Subscriber Line 2). When functioning with PLANET VDSL2 CPE (Customer Premises Equipment), the VC-23x series CPE offers absolutely the fastest data transmission speeds over existing copper telephone lines, which provide the ideal solution in the last mile. 

    Each VDSL2 interface of the VC-2400MR series provides two copper phone ports, one for VDSL2 connection and the other one for POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) connection. To share the existing phone line with POTS, the VC-2400MR Series has built-in POTS splitter that helps the voice over telephone and network data to transmit at the same wire without being interrupted.

    High Speed Connectivity for ISP / Triple Play Devices
    As the demand of home broadband connections increases for home-communication and entertainment needs, VDSL2 technology is the next step media to support the integration of home services and provide significant faster transmission speed than current cable modems and the ADSL technology. The VC-2400MR series applies the EoVDSL (Ethernet over VDSL) to providing up to 100Mbps download capability and makes many Multi-Media services come true on the local network: 

    • IPTV / HDTV
    • VOD (Video on Demand) 
    • Voice over IP 
    • Video Conferencing / Video Phone
    • On-Line Game 
    • Internet Radio / On-line Music 
    • Long Distance Education 

    The VC-2400MR series offers the excellent bandwidth to meet the requirements for the triple play devices for home entertainment and communication.

    Traffic Flow QoS Ensuring Application Services
    The VDSL2 Switch contains robust QoS features such as Port-based, 802.1p priority and also IP TOS/DSCP. It guarantees the best performance at VoIP and video stream transmission and empowers the enterprises to take fulll advantages of the limited network resources.

    Selectable VDSL2 Data Rate for Service Differentiation
    Through the management interface, the administrator can control the data transmit speed of each VDSL2 interface. Telecom and ISP can immediately and remotely upgrade/downgrade bandwidth service upon different demands. 

    Efficient Management
    To meet the growing network, PLANET VC-2400MR series provides console and telnet command line interface, advanced WEB and SNMP management interface. With its built-in Web-based management interface, the VDSL2 Switch offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. The VDSL2 Switch supports standard Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and can be monitored via any standard-based management software. For text-based management, the VDSL2 Switch can also be accessed via Telnet and the console port. Moreover, the VDSL2 Switch offers secure remote management by supporting Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connection which encrypts the packet content at each session. The features above provide an efficient way to manage the devices from the internet environment with no need to add extra secure system either by means of hardware or software.

    Robust Layer 2 Features
    For efficient management, via WEB interface the VC-2400MR Series can be programmed for basic switch management functions such as port speed configuration, Port link aggregationIEEE 802.1Q VLAN and Q-in-QVLAN, Port Mirroring, Rapid Spanning Tree and ACL security. Additionally, the firmware includes advanced features such as IGMP snooping, QoS (Quality of Service), broadcast storm and bandwidth control to enhance bandwidth utilization. 

    Extremely Reliable Design to Ensure Continuous Operation
    Power Redundant 
    The VC-2400MR series supports the optional hot-swappable Redundant Power System (RPS) to ensure continuous operation. The VC-2400MR is equipped with one 100~240V AC power supply unit and the VC-2400MR48 is equipped with one DC -48V power supply unit on their standard package. To enhance the reliability, both the VC-2400MR and VC-2400MR48 provide one spare power supply unit slot for optional 100~240V AC or DC -48V redundant power supply installation. The continuous power systems are specifically designed to handle high tech facilities requiring the highest power integrity available. Also, the -48V DC power supply implemented makes the VC-2400MR series VDSL2 Switch as a telecom level device that can be located in the electronic room.


    Temperature and Fan Status Monitoring
    The Managed VDSL2 Switch is equipped with temperature sensor and cooling fans to ensure reliable operation. Whenever there is abnormal temperature detected or cooling fan service stops, the Managed VDSL2 Switch would display related information on the Web management interface. Therefore, it helps the administrator to efficiently manage the Managed VDSL2 Switch operation.

    High Performance VDSL2 Solution

  • Applications
  • Last Mile of FTTx Deployment
    The VC-2400MR Series provides up to 100/100Mbps symmetric data rate within 300m and in long range connections; it provides ultra-high performance to the pervasive telephone line network. With the two built-in mini-GBIC 1000Base-SX/LX SFP (Small Factor Pluggable) interfaces, the VC-2400MR Series can be deployed from within 550 meters (Multi-mode fiber) up to above 10/50/70/120 kilometers (Single-mode fiber). The various distances of SFP (small-form factor) and Bidi (WDM) transceivers are optional for customers. The long distance support feature makes the VC-2400MR series a great and ideal solution for FTTx (Fiber to the Building, Fiber to the Campus or Fiber to the Home) 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’ home.
    MTU / MDU / Hospitality Solution
    IPTV, VOD and digital message broadcasting services are the worldwide hot trends, and more and more service providers have gradually upgraded the client side devices from analog system to digital system. PLANET VC-2400MR series VDSL2 CO Switch and VC-23x VDSL2 CPEs are the best solutions to quickly providing cost-effective and high speed network services by utilizing the existing telephone wire infrastructure. IP network installation is straightforward and requires no new wiring. With enough bandwidth, the 100/100Mbps symmetric capability of the VC-2400MR series enables many Multi-Media services on local Internet to become true, such as VOD (Video on Demand), Voice over IP, Video phone, IPTV, distance education, and so on. The VC-2400MR series provides excellent bandwidth to satisfy the triple play devices for entertainment and communication. Meanwhile, this kind of infrastructure will minimize the burden on the Internet.
