Ethernet over Coax (EoC) Shootout

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Jul 16, 2015

Reusing existing coax for IP cameras can cut installation costs dramatically. However, there are endless numbers of Ethernet over coax adapters available, all with differing price points and feature sets, so choosing the right ones can be daunting.

To find out what works best in EoC applications, we bought five models of popular Ethernet over coax adapters, including: 

Testing each in these key areas:

  • Maximum transmission distance: Does each meet or exceed manufacturer specs?
  • PoE performance: Were there any problems powering cameras?
  • Ease of use and advanced features: Were the units plug and play and did they offer bells and whistles?
