Gigabit Ethernet Over Coax

Hi Everyone,

I have a client that wants to use their existing plant coax network to get multiple cameras to existing locations. They have 5 runs that are about 1200' or so and they want to put 2 or 3 2MP IP-PTZ along with 3 or 4 4MP fixed-lens cameras in each area. (5 coax runs, 5-7 cameras in each area). The PTZ cameras will be recording almost constantly and the fixed-lens cameras are only on motion (30% of the time, 24 hours a day).

I am not sure that a 10/100 coax to ethernet bridge would cut it for the number of cameras going in each area. The only gigabit over coax I could find is a Startech EOC1110K, which has few reviews.

Has anyone used the Startech unit or a different brand that does gigabit? I am planning on locating the extenders in a NEMA4X enclosure with a heater if necessary, but I was hoping to get something that is meant for an industrial site if possible.

Thanks for any feedback.
