Most analog camera systems were deployed utilizing RG59 coaxial cable at distance up to 1000 feet from the head-end. The Etherstretch solution allows for the utilization of existing
coaxial infrastructure to not only transmit IP cameras and other networking devices but it also powers them over this cable as well. The networking standards limit the maximum cable distance between devices to 100 meters. The Etherstretch solution extends these distances up to 500 meters.
This unique product allows a true migration path from analog camera technology to IP camera solutions. Incorporating a Gigabit PoE+ network switch along with NITEK’s ability to utilize an existing coaxial infrastructure makes upgrading an existing site cost effective by reducing labor and materials associated with cable abatement and
additional support network hardware needed to complete the system.
