DCE 5204V-BM VDSL2 Modem Very High-speed Connectivity for Internet Access and IPTV service, hospitality, MDU and MTU applications.

The DCE 5204V-BM is a single VDSL2 port modem equipped with four Ethernet ports by embedded 10/100Mbps Ethernet Switch. Compliant with ITU-T G.993.2 VDSL2 standard, the DCE 5204V-BM supports the highest rate of up to 100Mbps/100Mbps in VDSL2 Profile (30a) with a 6-band solution.

Since VDSL2 has the characteristics of faster rates over shorter distances, the DCE
5204V-BM provides the ideal architecture for Telecoms to use fiber optic lines as the backbone and a VDSL2 line as the last mile into the home or office.

VDSL2 operates over copper wires so that telecom operators can provide bundled services to end-users similar to those that cable operators offer. With outstanding throughput, the DCE
5204V-BM complements fiber networks in offering the best solution for delivering IPTV or home entertainment services.

The DCE 5204V-BM also supports both central office (CO) and customer-premises equipment (Remote/CPE) modes for back-to-back applications.

In addition to forwarding Ethernet packets between VDSL2 port and Ethernet ports, the DCE
5204V-BM also provides Hardware IGMP snooping for IGMP v1/v2 to facilitate IPTV services without interfering with other applications.

Standard-compliant to
ITU-T G.993.2

The DCE 5204V-BM complies with the international standards and
interoperates with other major/open chipsets. It supports multiple
profiles (8a, 8b, 8c, 8d, 12a, 12b, 17a, and 30a); different band plans
(997, 998, and proprietary) and multiple annex types (Annex A, Annex B
and Annex C), by default factory settings to fit various requirements.
Using the latest chip design technology, the DCE 5204V-BM consumes
less power (less than 2 watt per VDSL2 port) and has shorter training
time to get the device up and running.

Long Reach Ethernet (LRE)
/ Back-to-back / Point-to-Point Applications

In addition to using one DCE 5204V-BM to connect to ISP/Telco’s DSLAM for
accessing Internet or video services, users can utilize a pair of DCE
5204V-BM for back-to-back applications. Theoretically the maximum length
for Ethernet cable is within 100 meters. By using two 5204V-BM modems, users
can have 100/100Mbps connectivity over a twisted-pair phone line up to
200 meters or longer. This capability can help users to bridge two
distinct LAN segments in longer distance or to have surveillance service
a little farther over existing twisted-pair phone cables.

Easy Installation

The DCE 5204V-BM is easy to use and easy to setup. Simply connect the hardware interfaces
without the need for complicated configuration efforts, the device will
synchronizes with a VDSL2 DSLAM (VTU-O) in auto-negotiated mode and allow
users to access the Internet or watch IPTV almost instantly.
