If you’ve had a conversation with someone at NVT Phybridge, you may have noticed that we speak a little differently. We speak differently because we are different. We’re swimming upstream when all other fish are swimming downstream. We’re driving towards the storm when everyone else is driving away from the storm.

We are different because we are innovators. We think differently, act differently, and speak differently in an effort to deliver on the founding promise of our organization; to bring only the most innovative solutions to market that are practical for both partners and customers. To be different we must also be bold. We must challenge deep-rooted industry paradigms to prove that IP modernization doesn’t need to be complex, cost-prohibitive and risky.

Digital transformation and the Internet of Things (IoT) has become a necessity for businesses that wish to remain competitive. However, as organizations become more intelligent and connected, their networks become more complex and less secure.

To solve this problem, we are fundamentally changing the conversation around traditional LAN design philosophies to improve the outcome for our partners and customers. This single purpose will drive every decision we make, from the products we develop, to the partnerships we engage in, to the impact we have on our communities, and especially – to the way we communicate.

IP migration is a term used in our industry to describe the process of moving from an older technology to an IP-based technology. For example, upgrading from an analog communication system to an IP voice solution. However, these organizations are not really “moving” from one technology to another, as the term “IP migration” would suggest. Organizations are “modernizing” their businesses with new technologies and innovations that allow them to do more than ever before.

Therefore, aligned with our commitment to change the conversation, we must also change the way we communicate. We use the term “IP modernization” where the industry would use the term “IP migration” because we don’t’ help our customers move from one technology to another. We help our customers modernize to the next generation of intelligent devices; giving them the tools they need to succeed – today and into the future.

Rethinking Network Design with Modern LAN Principles

We are not the only organization to recognize the need for innovation in an industry that sells innovations. In 2018, industry analysts from Frost & Sullivan recognized this gap and consulted NVT Phybridge as innovators in this space as they developed their revolutionary whitepaper titled, The Modern LAN: Rethinking Network Design for the Modern Age. As the title suggests, the whitepaper addresses critical issues with current LAN design philosophies as organizations continue to add more and more devices onto the network; including cybersecurity, reliability, performance, ROI and environmental impact. Our PoLRE® switch was featured in the whitepaper as a successful application of Modern LAN Principles. The Modern LAN whitepaper is another justification of our corporate mission to help organizations change the conversation to improve the outcome of their digital transformation.

Not every company has the opportunity to affect real change, but we do. Since our first product launch in 2008, we have had the pleasure of helping thousands of organizations around the world simplify their digital transformation. And still, so much potential lies ahead of us as we work to enable the future of connected devices.

Today, our CHARIoT series of long reach Power over Ethernet (LRPoE) switches and adaptors enable Modern LAN Principles; helping organizations simplify their upgrade to the latest IP solution with the freedom to leverage any new or existing infrastructure. This is made possible thanks to our patented SmartPathPoE™ technology.

What is SmartPathPoE Technology?

Devices are becoming more intelligent, requiring reliable power and data to distances farther than traditional Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches can provide. SmartPathPoE technology was developed to ensure your network is as intelligent as the devices it supports.

How Does SmartPathPoE Technology Improve your Outcome?

Don’t compromise on cost, security, reliability or performance. SmartPathPoE technology ensures your network is optimized to support each and every intelligent device.

SmartPathPoE Technology is Smart

Establish a simple and robust network topology with physically separate and cyber-secure point-to-point connections from endpoint to application; ensuring optimal reliability and performance from each device.

SmartPathPoE Technology is Simple

Leverage any new or existing infrastructure to simplify and accelerate your digital transformation. Our extensive portfolio of managed, unmanaged and single-port extender solutions ensures the perfect solution to meet your unique requirements.

SmartPathPoE Technology is Fast

Support IP endpoints with up to 6,000ft (1,830m) reach while delivering up to 100 Mbps symmetrical (full duplex) – that’s 18 times farther than standard Power over Ethernet switches.

SmartPathPoE Technology is Environmentally Responsible

Eliminate the need to rip-and-replace existing network infrastructure and reduce your environmental footprint by preventing multiple tons of hardware and cabling e-waste.

SmartPathPoE Technology is Cost-Effective

Simple and fast implementation means you get access to your smart tools faster. Improve return on investment by reallocating infrastructure cost savings to more ROI-driving IP endpoints and applications.

CHARIoT Series of Long Reach Power over Ethernet Switches

SmartPathPoE Technology continues to separate the CHARIoT series from other solutions on the market. The CHARIoT series is comprised of three distinct product families:

PoLRE (Power over Long Reach Ethernet) family enables IP endpoints over single-pair UTP (unshielded twisted pair) up to 1,200ft (365m) – 4 times farther than standard PoE switches.

CLEER (Coax-Leveraged Ethernet Extended Reach) family enables IP endpoints over coax up to 6,000ft (1,830m) – 18 times farther than standard PoE switches.

FLEX family enables IP endpoints over multi-pair UTP up to 2,000ft (610m) – 6 times farther than standard PoE switches.

Our greatest potential is ahead of us…

We look to the future with clear vision and a singular purpose; to help our customers change the conversation to improve their outcome. This commitment builds on the ideals that inspired our founders to start this company over 10 years ago and will continue to be the driving force behind every decision we make.
