Extending Outdoor IP Devices Past 100 Meters

Installing and maintaining IP devices such as wireless access points, IP cameras and various other pieces of equipment outdoor can be a bit challenging. There are limitations on the distance you can run with Cat5/6 copper wire, plus there are concerns with corrosion and the possibility of lightning damage. Several companies are now offering solutions incorporating fiber optics in extended run solutions for situations where you have to go past 100 meters. Senco Advanced Components recently introduced  their IP-ONE optical and electrical extender that allows you to extend POE powered IP devices up to 3000 ft. With the incorporation of their Igator Media Converter, this solution allows up to 6 devices to be extended and is IP68 rated to withstand deployment in almost any outdoor application.
