An Expandable Platform over Coaxial Networks

The ZyXEL PLA4275 is a Gigabit Ethernet over Coaxial (EoC) Master Adapter that provides data transfer rates of up to 700 Mbps* through the existing coaxial network with Gigabit Ethernet ports. The IP multicast service offers service providers and cable operators an ideal solution for multimedia services over coaxial networks.

Remote management through Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)

With SNMP support, the ZyXEL PLA4275 enables service providers and cable operators to easily monitor the device status. The syslog feature also allows service providers to collect log messages from devices to analyze on the central log server.

802.1Q VLAN support enables Multi-Master management

With the built-in VLAN features, the ZyXEL PLA4275 enables service providers to freely deploy EoC masters. This not only increases network efficiency and productivity, but also enables service providers to offer better Internet services to meet the needs of residential users.

Connectivity solution without new wire

With the ZyXEL EoC solution, cable operators can reduce deployment complexity by leveraging the existing coaxial cable without the difficulty installing new ones. The ZyXEL PLA4275 is capable of managing up to 32 EoC slave units and functioning as a bridge to convert Ethernet into coaxial networks and to utilize the existing infrastructure with simple “plug-and-play” installation. Internet access via coaxial networks ensures quality of service through the existing coaxial cable while reducing operating costs as well as maintenance expenses for the cable operator.

Gigabit Ethernet ports with high-speed performance

The ZyXEL PLA4275 with data transfer rates of up to 700 Mbps* is backward compatible with HomePlug AV-based products. In addition, it is equipped with two Gigabit Ethernet ports to provide a stable high-performance network for multi-slave Internet connectivity. The ZyXEL PLA4275 can easily extend Internet access to any slave device with coaxial cables.

Quality of Service (QoS)-enhanced media streaming quality

The advanced QoS on the ZyXEL PLA4275 prioritizes traffic to improve the quality of multimedia streaming applications such as triple-play services.
