The OET 5501 is a 3 port Ethernet switch designed to extend the reach of electrical Ethernet signals over long distances using a constant (fixed) high speed 1Gbit optical connection.

The OET 5501 can be paired with another OET 5501, the yellobrik OET 1510 or any other IEEE compliant Ethernet switch with a fiber interface. When paired with one of these devices using two fiber cables, the OET 5501 will provide a stable, high speed 1Gbit error free optical connection between distant locations.

The OET 5501 has two standard RJ45 electrical Ethernet ports plus fiber I/O and functions as a 3 port Ethernet switch. For legacy system use; each electrical Ethernet port can be set for automatic speed detection (10/100/1000) or forced to 10Mbit, and each port can use automatic crossover detection, or be forced manually if needed. These functions are available via the APPolo control system.

A variety of optional SFP fiber sub modules are available (including singlemode and multimode fiber plus CWDM fiber with 18 wavelength selections) this allows the module to be used in multiple applications.

Full remote control and status monitoring, (including the available optical input budget) are possible when using the APPolo control system.
