Private Broadband Networks (T3)


PBN extends the deployment environment for existing enterprise WLAN APs. The principal design goal is to leverage the in-building or on-campus telephony wiring to deploy Ethernet, POE or wireless LAN networks without the effort and expense of rewiring with structured cabling, fibre or AC mains power.

The products combine proven VDSL for long range Ethernet over copper wire – with specialised line power as a value add feature.

PBN for Hospitality

Products comprise Motorola T3 PowerBroadband switch, M2 Ethernet wall plate and MC-802 Wireless wall plate.

Markets include:

all major hotels, apartments, student/military housing, mining villages.


Dramatically faster installation = lower total cost, Wireless in the guest room = better wireless LAN for hotels, wall plate form factor = tamper-proof and secure.

PBN for Enterprise

Long Range Ethernet products (XL) have been shipping for over 15 years. XL products allow Enterprise to extend Ethernet and POE way past the standard 100M limit.

Markets include:

Bulk and rail such as railway yards, sea and airports, city municipalities (intelligent transport systems), industrial use for network extension in manufacturing and campus. Products comprise XLT 402 and 402 fast copper switch, XLP 6800 and XLP 7000 long range POE switches.


Long range Ethernet provides up to 75Mbps and up to 3,000 metres. Long range POE up to 30.8W and up to 3,000 metres – ideal for IP cameras and Wireless access points that are beyond normal Ethernet or fibre connections and where wireless backhaul is unsuitable. Long range POE means no mains power is required at the remote location.
