With the new controllers (32/2-B & 64/4-B) and the sw2.1.x.x software, it is possible to combine 2 or more ports on a controller.

The controller will support 16 endpoints pr combined port. This means, if you combine:

  • EoC out 1 + 2              : 32 endpoints
  • EoC out 1 + 2 + 3        : 48 endpoints
  • EoC out 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 : 64 endpoints

The combined endpoints will share the 1.6Gbps since the frequency range is the same (0-200MHz).

Please note: You need the new controllers (32/2-B & 64/4-B) for combining to work!

The combining of the ports are done in 2 steps:

  1. Software, in the GUI
  2. Hardware, with a splitter/combiner

1. Software

Before doing the actual combining on the coax string, we need to configure the EoC out ports.

This is done, in 'Network' -> ‘G.hn settings’ –> ‘G.hn combining

  1. Click ‘Edit’ for the group you wish to configure.
  2. Enable the combining group.
  3. Select the EoC port ports, you wish to use in the group.
  4. Save the changes.
  5. EoC ports used in Group A can’t be reused in Group B.
  6. The Status page will show the combined Groups

2. Hardware

With the combing groups configured, you can now combine the ports. In this example, port 1 & 2 are combined.

Remember, the splitter you are using for combing adds attenuation to the G.hn and TV signal.
