NVT Phybridge Expands its Solutions for Enabling the Modern LAN with the Launch of the FLEX8 Plug-and-Play Long Reach PoE Switch

NVT Phybridge expands its award-winning FLEX Family with the FLEX8 Long Reach PoE Switch, making it efficient and cost-effective for businesses around the world to move to IP and the Modern LAN.

The FLEX8 is a versatile, high-powered, enterprise-class solution with 8 downlink ports delivering fast Ethernet (100Mbps full duplex, symmetrical) and up to PoE++ (50Wper port) over multi-pair UTP for up to 2,000ft (610m) – that’s 6Xs the distance of typical PoE switches.

Unlike other Network Switches, FLEX8 Delivers Speed, Reach and Power, leveraging new or existing 1 pair, 2 pair or 4 pair UTP cable and can operate in standard mode (without an adapter) to 328ft (100m) and long reach PoE mode for extended reach to 2,000ft (610m). The FLEX8 switch auto detects data rate for maximum bandwidth and transmission distance and is equipped with a speed toggle which can be positioned to force 10Mbps when necessary to establishing a link.

“When modernizing to IP, businesses can now take full advantage of Modern LAN principles and avoid major traditional challenges as they look to connect IP endpoints to IP applications. NVT Phybridge designed the FLEX Family to help customers gracefully upgrade to IP eliminating the cost, risk and complexity that come with the 328ft reach limitations of standard Ethernet switches” said John Croce, CEO of NVT Phybridge “The FLEX8 is the perfect addition to help us expand our product offering, making sure we have a solution for every customer.”

FLEX8 was designed to make the modernization to IP quick, easy and cost effective by leveraging 1, 2 or 4 pair UTP infrastructure, it is an enabler of Modern LAN principles, and is IoTᴳ certified. As part of the FLEX8 launch NVT Phybridge is offering special discounts on the Flex8 Switch and all Flex Extender Kits.
