Fibre optic communication has become the medium of choice for the transmission of telephone, internet and cable television data signals. The South African market is undergoing a massive infrastructure upgrade to integrate the much-needed connectivity into the urban grid. Eurobyte Technology is at the forefront of this drive and supplies much of the hardware needed for a successful fibre optic installation project. We touch on four essential products at the heart of your installation. Visit our website for the full range.
Fibre Network projects depend on a range of products we supply. This month, we feature four of the products – the Cattex IP55 Ventilated Outdoor server cabinet, the Planet IGS-624HPT Industrial PoE+ Switch, the Planet IGS-624HPT Industrial PoE+ Switch, the Planet GT-805A Media Converter and the PLANET XGS3-24242 – Stackable Managed Switch.
The weatherproof Outdoor Ventilated Server Cabinet for Network Installations
Outdoor server equipment is expensive, susceptible to harsh weather conditions and vulnerable to vandals and theft. When setting up your outdoor Fibre Network, it is vital to find the most secure, robust enclosure. We have considered all the concerns, and by far, the best, safest solution is the Cattex IP55 Ventilated Network Server Cabinet. The Ventilated Network Server Cabinet is one of the most popular outdoor solutions for several reasons which include the following:
The vented doors on the Cattex IP55 Vented Network Server Cabinets draw in air through washable filters via roof mounted fans and exhausts it through the insulated roof. Other features include:
If you have a Fibre Installation project or outdoor network equipment, the Cattex IP55 Vented Network Server Cabinet is just one of our many options available to you.
How It’s Made – 643 Laser Cutters
Our Cattex Network Server Cabinets are locally manufactured and exported globally. We use precision laser cutters. Ever wondered how a laser cutter works. Here’s a short how it’s made video.
Planet switches are scalable, cost-effective and an excellent addition to any commercial grade network installation.
Every Fibre Network project depends on high quality, reliable switches. Eurobyte Technology supplies a range of switches including the robust and very reliable IGS-624HPT Industrial PoE+ Switch. This switch provides full port Gigabit speed, works well in extremely harsh weather conditions and is compatible with 100Mbps and 1000Mbps SFP transceivers to provide a reliable, stable long-distance connection.
The IGS-624HPT is well suited for applications in deploying surveillance system and securing control and wireless service in climatically demanding environments. It manages a wide temperature ranges from -40 to 75 degrees Celsius. The IGS-624HPT Industrial Gigabit PoE+ Switch also provides rapid fibre redundancy for highly critical Ethernet applications. The redundant-mode supports auto-recover function. If the destination port of a packet link is down, it forwards the packet to a backup pair.

Fibre vs Copper as Fast as Possible
What is the difference between copper and fibre cables? Here’s a little more to add to your knowledge bank. We supply a host of products for fibre networks. Talk to us.
The networking device that makes it possible to connect two dissimilar media types such as a twisted pair with fibre optic cabling
When it comes to setting up any network and particularly a fibre network, you need to account for different media types and how to connect them. How far back do you retrofit and how do you connect the media types? The answer is the PLANET GT-805AT an Industrial Gigabit Media Converter. The PLANET Gigabit Media Converter – GT-805A networking device makes it possible to connect two dissimilar media types such as a twisted pair with fibre optic cabling. It also provides non-blocking wire-speed performance and great flexibility for Gigabit Ethernet extension in harsh industrial environments. The GT-805AT is well suited for surveillance systems, securing control and wireless service in climatically demanding environments. It works effectively in a wide temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees Celsius.
The GT-805AT is also compatible with 100Mbps and 1000Mbps SFP transceivers to provide a robust, stable and long-distance connection. The IGT-805AT has two DC power input connectors for redundant power supply installation to enhance the operation, reliability and flexibility. It also possesses an integrated power supply source with wide-ranging voltages from 12 to 48V DC or 24V AC.
Other features that make this a great addition to a fibre network include the following:
The Planet Networking media converter is a networking device that makes it possible to connect two dissimilar media types such as a twisted pair with fibre optic cabling. This converter makes for a perfect addition to any fibre network.
