Michal Kolar of Multimedia Systems in the Czech Republic writes: "Our customer is asking what the maximum Ethernet CAT5E cable length is between an Axia xNode and the LAN switch. I expect it would be 100m."

Axia Support Engineer Matt Rockwell answers:

Yes,100m (328 feet) is correct. I'll also take the opportunity to point out that if you use either a PowerStation console engine, a QOR console engine (for iQ and Radius consoles) or another Cisco switch, each of these devices has or can have a gigabit SFP port in addition to the Gigabit copper port. If you use Cisco SFP adapters, you can make a network run with fiber to much greater lengths between devices. This may be an alternative if your customer needs run-length over 100m.
