Veracity LONGSPAN PoE Extender

By Ethan Ace, Published Oct 28, 2012, 08:00pm EDT (Info+)

Cabling over long distances can be very expensive. Cameras installed in distant locations such as parking lots may require expensive fiber optic cabling instead of typical UTP. However, Ethernet over twisted pair (EoTP) products have become more readily available, allowing a number of common cable types to be reused for these installations, potentially reducing cabling expenses. In this note, we examine the latest EoTP entry, the Longspan from Veracity, which promises greater distances and more PoE power than competitive products, at lower cost.
