No. DATALIGHT transmits Ethernet-based, digital applications only, just as is the case with wireless or powerline. Analogue telephony additionally requires defined voltage levels which cannot be implemented through the fibre. Yet, VoIP applications are no problem, since these are based on the IP, i.e. on the Ethernet protocol. If the analogue telephone shall remain available, there are special adapters on the market.
The POF technology is standardised analogously to glass fibre. DATALIGHT corresponds to the OP1 category according to DIN EN 50173 (step index – POF) at rates from 50 to 100 m. In the meantime, various plug solutions for POF have been standardised as well. These are, however, used in home networks to a lesser extent, since “plug-free” contacting is the advantage that matters most here. In addition, transmission protocols used have meanwhile been standardised according to IEEE802.3bv.
Both the switch 6 + 2-port 100 DATALIGHT and the wireless access point 100 DATALIGHT can be configured by means of a web browser. The switch can also be operated without configuration. For security reasons, the wireless access point shall receive new standard passwords, and multiple wireless access points – a new IP address.
Normally, the switch is connected directly to the router or modem via the Ethernet port (RJ45). All devices then have network access to the internet from there.
The media converter included in the access point converts optical signals into electric signals. All network-compatible terminal devices can be connected via the RJ45 connections (Ethernet ports).
Triple play combines TV, internet and (IP) telephony. FFKuS DATALIGHT offers the possibility of transmitting these data.
