Practice: Gigabit Internet in apartment house


Providing a 5-story 1400m2 residential building with gigabit fast internet.


The broadband connection of one Gigabit is distributed to 8 apartments with a G4200-8T switch.

The G4201TM, G4202T and G4204T-W EndPoints were used as clients.

Connection to the apartments:

The connection was routed out of the network cabinet with short Cat6 Ethernet cables and to the telephone cabling in the apartments with the help of an external patch panel.

If necessary, the telephone cables can thus be disconnected quickly and without intervention in the network cabinet.

Transmission values in the switch:

The maximum was achieved from the technology.

The column “PHY DS/US” shows the gross bandwidth of each data connection. Net values are approx. 20% lower and amount to 1.5GBit/s.

Speed test in the farthest apartment:

The result is impressive – 940MBit/s is the maximum net speed for Gigabit Ethernet.
