Extend Your Ethernet Range with the MikroTik GPeR

Discover how GPeR extends Ethernet over 1.5km easily, offering a cost-effective solution for vast networks.

In many large-scale and complex environments, the standard Ethernet range limitation of about 100 meters can fall short. The MikroTik Gigabit Passive Ethernet Repeater (GPeR) addresses this challenge head-on, pushing the boundaries of Ethernet connectivity up to approximately 1.5km, offering a powerful yet cost-effective solution for extensive network setups.


Innovative Technology and Practical Applications

The GPeR is not merely an extender but a sophisticated device that utilizes a Marvell switch chip for active data management. By supporting daisy chaining of multiple units, it facilitates expansive network coverage without the need for separate power sources at each juncture, thanks to its PoE capabilities.


GPeR Gigabit Passive Ethernet Repeater


Boost Ethernet range up to 1.5km with MikroTik GPeR, perfect for large buildings. Low-cost, easy deployment alternative to GPON installations.

This setup is particularly useful in scenarios such as:

  • Scenario 1: Extending an Ethernet link up to 1.5 km when one side has a PoE source, ideal for sprawling campuses or industrial complexes.
  • Scenario 2: A home user might connect a WiFi access point to a GPEN11 unit, which then outputs PoE. This setup can power multiple units extending Ethernet to a roof-mounted netPower series switch. This switch collects power from all apartments and connects to an uplink, effectively creating a high-powered, community-wide network.


* Voltage drop on the cable and on GPeR units needs to be taken into account when calculating PoE-in possibility, in case of insufficient power take off PoE jumpers to disable Passive PoE passtrough and use other power source for Device 2.

The GPeR revolutionizes Ethernet expansion by offering an adaptable, robust, and easy-to-deploy solution for extending network reach. Whether it’s for residential complexes, industrial areas, or outdoor applications, it ensures reliable connectivity across significant distances.
