Phybridge Inc., a leader in two-wire network switch technology, today announced the introduction of the Phybridge PoLRE LPC® (Power over Long Reach Ethernet) 8 port switch. The PoLRE data switch family delivers Ethernet and Power over Ethernet over a single pair of voice-grade copper wire with 4 times the reach of traditional Ethernet switches. The PoLRE switch combines unique single-pair Ethernet with robust power capabilities to provide the most reliable platform for IP Telephony deployments. Small businesses and distributed enterprise can leverage their existing voice infrastructure and transform it into an IP path with power. Voice point-to-point infrastructure is standard across every location regardless of size - allowing for a repeatable, scalable and predictable deployment experience.
"As pioneers of 2-wire Ethernet technology, we overcame network design challenges and introduced many innovations in creating the PoLRE switch. Simplicity and robustness are at the core of everything we do here," says Oliver Emmanuel, Founder and President of Phybridge. "Long reach and PoE capabilities, plug-and-play deployment, and low power consumption are all characteristics of our PoLRE LPC switch."
"We are excited to bring the PoLRE LPC switch to market. There is tremendous interest from leading IP Telephony hosted and premise based vendors," says John Croce, CEO of Phybridge. "We see the LPC switch as the missing link for many hosted VoIP providers allowing them to create an end-to-end solution with the ideal LAN backbone supporting the IP phone requirement. The PoLRE 8 port switch eliminates many of the local area network barriers to VoIP migration allowing for a quick, easy and risk-free way to migrate to IP Telephony. The plug-and-play switch allows customers and hosted VoIP providers to create a completely separate LAN leveraging the existing, proven reliable voice infrastructure ensuring a great user experience.”
The 8 port switch is part of the PoLRE switch family. PoLRE family also includes the 24 port and 48 port managed switches which can scale to thousands of users.
Phybridge is home to the only switches globally to deliver Ethernet and power over a single pair of telephony grade wire with 4 times the reach of traditional data switches. Businesses are leveraging their existing, proven reliable voice infrastructure to create a separate network path for voice communications, complementing an existing data network, while optimizing an organization’s IT infrastructure for voice and data convergence. Our switches were designed specifically to handle any organization’s existing or future real-time voice requirements delivering a robust platform ensuring voice quality of service today and into the future.
