Overview

The CLEER24 (Coax Leveraged Ethernet Extended Reach) managed switch makes the modernization to IP devices (IoT) simple, secure and cost-effective. When paired with the EC Adapters, this powerful enterprise-grade switch delivers fast Ethernet and PoE+ over coax cable with up to 4,000ft (1,220m) reach – that’s 12Xs the reach of standard Ethernet switches. The CLEER24 comes standard with robust power management capabilities and an industry leading, simple to use GUI interface.

With the CLEER24, customers are taking full advantage of Modern LAN principles, protecting existing infrastructure assets, and eliminating any need to rip/replace the established Coax cabling. The CLEER24 managed switch optimizes network design with advanced interoperability and easy integration into the overall LAN creating a secure, robust and easy to manage path for IP endpoints.

  • Accelerate your return on investment by reducing infrastructure costs.
  • Simplify your IP modernization, collapsing planning and deployment time.
  • Eliminate infrastructure barriers, risks, disruption and costs.
  • Create a robust plug-and-play IP platform that is easy to deploy and manage.
  • Be environmentally responsible during your IP upgrades.

Speed, Reach and Power

CLEER24 delivers 100 Mbps symmetrical (full duplex) and PoE+ (30W) over coax cable with up to 4,000ft (1,220m) reach. It is designed to support the most demanding IP endpoints with plenty of bandwidth to spare. No speed degradation with longer distance.

Industry Leading PowerWISE® Technology

Power sharing for redundancy, load balancing, AC/DC options, hot swappable power supply and auto-sensing 100-240 VAC delivering 500 to 1,000 watts of power. CLEER24 is one of the most energy efficient switches on the market, consuming less than 17 Watts of power to operate.

Managed Switch with Plug-and-Play Option

CLEER24 can either operate in a transparent mode functioning as a bridge, allowing for plug-and-play deployment, or as a fully managed switch with high value features specifically designed for the security industry, including:

  • Power management by port for easy reset of ports.
  • Port MAC locking for higher security and peace of mind.
  • Simple Network Manager, an intuitive Web GUI that makes managing the switch a breeze.

Adapters

EC Adapter Options

There are three media converter options available to pair with the CLEER24 switch and extend PoE over Coax. The EC-Link and EC Link+ are single endpoint solutions and the EC4 enables 4 IP endpoints from a single long Coax cable.
