I think the answer is pretty clear but just wondering what everyone else thinks?
We will have a switch with 34 cameras on it. That switch needs to connect to the head end that is easily 500' away.
The choice is fiber or Cat5/6 with extenders.
If running fiber would it be best to use single mode or dual mode?
The building is a food plant with 30' ceilings. There is a 3' to 5' space between the insulation of the warehouse and the roof of the building (solid material, no fall through hazard according to building engineer). Like a mini attic. The fiber will be run through the trusses. While the fiber will be pretty much out of the way, it is likely contractors will be up there as this is the access area for sprinklers, electrical wiring, etc.
What is the best fiber for this application?
We will probably pull the fiber and have someone come in and terminate/test it.
