With global expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT), demand for IP/Ethernetconnected devices is soaring. Billions of devices are already capable of connecting to the Internet. Ethernet—and power-over-Ethernet (PoE) in particular—has grown in popularity because it strikes the perfect blend of speed, cost, and ease of use. Ethernet, however, presents a few drawbacks that may overshadow the benefits by creating escalating infrastructure costs and system downtime. The Ethernet standard specifies a distance limitation of 328 ft (100 m), which restricts location options for device installation. Standard Ethernet also requires Cat 5 cabling or better, which often leads to installing new cabling infrastructure—involving tearing into walls, ceilings, pavement, and worse. The CopperLink 1101 kit from Patton enables Ethernet connectivity over previously installed copper infrastructure. The solution breathes new life into circuits previously deployed for such traditional non-IP applications as RS232/485 controls, alarms, CCTV, analog phones, intercom speakers, and others. Instantaneously install PoE-compliant devices such as wireless access points (WAPs), IP cameras, IP telephones, IP door stations, HVAC controls, and more—with no additional overhead cost. With the extended reach the CL1101 kit provides, you can install your IP terminal equipment exactly where you want it! Flexibility of device location is paramount in such applications as building security, where increased perimeter dimension and expanded spot coverage area are critical.
