Distance-extending SFP sends Ethernet over UTP or coaxial cabling-

Distance-extending SFP sends Ethernet over UTP or coaxial cabling

October 31, 2013
Cable Installation and Maintenance  
ComNet has introduced a small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) device that can extend Ethernet distances over coaxial or unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cabling to 3000 feet. The ComNet CL-SFP can be used in any Ethernet device that uses MSA-compliant SFPs for connectivity, the company explains. 10-Mbit/sec and 100-Mbit/sec models are available. The company says it “sees an application where existing coax or UTP is being utilized for IP transmission. The CL-SFP simplifies installation by eliminating the need for additional Ethernet-over-copper media converters by allowing direct connection to an Ethernet switch.”

ComNet’s president and chief operating officer Andrew Acquarulo Jr. explained, “We are seeing an increasing demand coming from the market to utilize existing copper media in IP networks. SFPs have been universally accepted for fiber-optic connectivity, giving flexibility in the choice of fiber type, connector type and distance. Our innovative CopperLine SFP-based Ethernet extender, the CL-SFP, gives our customers flexibility, reduces complexity and now allows a direct Ethernet-over-copper connection to any switch.”

Skip Haight, vice president of marketing, added, “With the extension of our CopperLine series to now include a distance-extending SFP for switches, ComNet continues to set the standard for providing product solutions.”


                                    ComNet's CL-SFP can be used in any Ethernet device to extend 10- or 100-Mbit/sec Ethernet over coaxial or UTP cable.
