2N® 2Wire

IP-enable your Infrastructure

The 2N® 2Wire transceivers provide a perfect solution for delivering network functionality to areas of a building previously not supported by your network. By taking advantage of two-wire or coaxial lines you can use these transceivers to convert power and IP signals to analog and convert back to IP at the other end, allowing connection of IP devices where there previously was no network infrastructure. Great for older buildings or areas where it is not practical or cost effective to re-cable for the sake of one or a few network devices. Purchased in pairs, simply place one 2N® 2Wire at each end of your wire or cable. Then provide one end with power using the supplied transformer, and very simply you have IP-enabled an area or areas that previously had no network connectivity. You can also configure your 2N® 2Wire units in a “hub and spoke” scheme where multiple far-end units are all connected by two-wires to the unit at the head end.
