Extended Distance 4-Port Ethernet Over Coax/RJ-45 Switch
ComNet Communication Networks introduced the CopperLine CLFE4US1TPC, which is an Ethernet switch that combines four 10/100TX Ethernet signals and transports them over one coaxial cable or RJ-45 cable. The CLFE4US1TPC can extend the transmission distance to 1,500 meters using coax or 900 meters using RJ-45 cable. This product is designed for applications where existing copper media such as coaxial cable or twisted pair (UTP) is currently installed and an upgrade to an IP-based system is required. The CLFE4US1TPC allows a four-fold increase in IP camera deployment without increasing the required transmission media, according to the company.
