I have a customer that has a need for 2 multi-sensor cameras in a remote part of a 1.2 million sq ft facility. The nearest CCTV IDF we have installed is around 800ft from this corner location. They have a need for 2 cameras, and I'm looking at quoting (2) 9W-H3-3MH-B01 Avigilon cameras. Currently, there is an analog camera and a 110VAC power supply (old Pelco PTZ power supply), so power is available in this location.
I have come across the Planet ivc-2004PT, which will supply POE+ and will uses coax to transmit over Ethernet, sounds like a great idea, but I have my worries with this. Ultimately it's a good bit of bandwidth and I haven't gotten comfortable with the idea of ethernet over Coax yet, and definitely am a little hesitant about this solution. I could pull fiber and install an IDF, but that's a lot of infrastructure in a spot where they probably won't be looking to add any additional cameras and I'm looking for a somewhat cost effective measure to providing this infrastructure to them.
I was looking through the IPVM Coax over Ethernet shoot out, and Planet isn't one of the devices tested. I believe it was Altronix, ComNet, Veracity, NVT, and another off brand. Does anyone see an efficient way that I am overlooking for this solution? Any ideas are appreciated, I've been kicking this around in my head for a couple of days and feel like I'm going in circles. Thanks in advance.
