Veracity VHW-HWPO HIGHWIRE Ethernet over Coax Media Converter with PoE.

HIGHWIRE turns any existing analog video cable (coax) into a high-speed Ethernet connection. This allows a networked IP camera to replace an analog CCTV camera, without installation of any new cabling. Thus the investment in the original cabling (usually around 30% of any system installation cost) can be retained and exploited for new-generation networked IP camera systems. HIGHWIRE is especially suited to mega-pixel IP camera applications or even multiple IP cameras as it supports high data rates.

HIGHWIREs are used in pairs and installing them is extremely simple. One HIGHWIRE unit is connected to each end of the coaxial cable with the BNC connectors, thus providing a straight RJ45 to RJ45 network connection from end to end across the existing cabling. A HIGHWIRE to HIGHWIRE connection instantly operates as a full-duplex 100Base-T Ethernet connection and is completely transparent to any network device. HIGHWIRE has no MAC address or IP address and requires no set-up at all.
