Splicing Network Cables Tested

By John Scanlan, Published Apr 07, 2022, 10:01am EDT (Info+)

Sometimes damaged category cables are spliced to get video surveillance systems back online e.g. no lift on-site, no access to all areas needed to replace the cable, and more.

IPVM Image

In this report, we test several different materials for splicing network cable used in video surveillance networks and outline the impact it has on performance.

IPVM tested cables using a cable certifier and cable qualifier to accurately measure performance decay. The cables were also tested with video surveillance cameras to test for practical problems.

Inside, IPVM examines:

  • RJ45s and RJ45 Couplers
  • 110 Punch Down Splice Kits
  • B Connectors / Dolphins
  • UR Connectors / Scotchloks
  • Certification Results
  • Qualifier Results
  • Practical Surveillance Examples
  • IPVM Recommendations
