Upgrading Security with New Power and Data Transmission Solutions | #Verdafero #Ethernet #Data #NetworkTehnology | Altronix Ethernet over Coax (EoC) media converters seamlessly facilitate the upgrade of analog to IP by repurposing coax cabling. These media converters deliver the additional benefit of providing both power and data over a single coax cable. Altronix’s comprehensive line of EoC solutions eliminate the need to rip and replace existing cabling with tremendous flexibility and substantial savings.
Furthermore, new PoE midspans and endspans capable of delivering more power with advanced features add greater versatility and efficiencies when deploying new integrated networked surveillance and security systems. The latest outdoor cameras and infrared illuminators require in excess of 60W or more, and midspans and endspans that integrate with wireless nodes and fiber optic cabling enable greater distances with faster throughput. This allows the extension of physical IP security and surveillance devices far beyond coax and IP cabling, and the deployment of these solutions in areas where local power supplies don’t exist, or can’t easily be deployed.
In fact, IP cameras and many other physical security devices can be deployed at distances greater than one kilometer utilizing composite single-mode fiber optic cable with power and data from the head-end. New hardened PoE switches greatly extend the reach of perimeter security and increase overall situational awareness.
