Lowest-Cost EoC Yet? (EnConn Mini-Power)

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Sep 19, 2012

Reusing coaxial cable for new IP cameras can simplify and save on upgrades. However, the devices that enable this, Ethernet over Coax adapters, have traditionally been quite expensive. Last year, Altronix's new EoC units offered significantly reduced cost. Now a fairly unknown manufactuer EnConn has released an even lower cost unit with PoE support normally found on much more expensive models. In this note, we review the features of this new model and compare to existing products from competing manufacturers, such as Altronix and Veracity.
