- Long Range Ethernet and PoE
LONGSPAN delivers unprecedented power and bandwidth over extreme lengths of regular Cat 5e or Cat 6 network cable, enabling a dependable connection to IP cameras and other remote network devices.

As a point-to-point solution with no mid-cable equipment and smart, automatic self-configuration, installation is simple and instantaneous. LONGSPAN even supports single-pair UTP cables, providing a fast upgrade solution for legacy analogue systems.

With an unrestricted 100Base-T full duplex connection available at a phenomenal 800 metres range, and PoE-equipped models delivering full-power 802.3at PoE Plus at 600 metres, LONGSPAN assures reliability in the most challenging conditions.

Unrivalled range, uncompromised bandwidth

IP cameras can demand peak network bandwidth of several times their average data rate while transmitting critical high-activity or low-light scenes. That's why LONGSPAN has been designed to support the full 200 Mbps bandwidth required for reliable 100Base-T Ethernet at up to 840 metres Cat 6 (or 690 metres Cat 5e).

For even more extreme distances, LONGSPAN can automatically negotiate a 10Base-T connection, supporting a range in excess of 1,000 metres, over ten times the convetional limit for cabled Ethernet.

More power, much further

LONGSPAN models with PoE can be powered from conventional IEEE 802.3af PoE or 802.3at PoE Plus switches and injectors, or Veracity's versatile power supply options can be specified for maximum range and power.

The full 25 watts required for POE Plus devices is available at up to 600 metres Cat 6 when a Veracity power supply is used, or 5 to 20 watts can be delivered from other PoE sources depending on range and cable type

Upgrade to IP, keep the UTP

Sites with legacy analogue cameras often use UTP baluns to send video over several hundred metres of twisted pair cable. LONGSPAN facilitates a simple upgrade path to IP for these installations.

LONGSPAN can automatically detect and adapt to single-pair cables, and deliver the same uncompromised 10 or 100Base-T connection up to 900 metres, assuring predictable IP video quality each and every time

High density, high reliability

LONGSPAN's unique, expandable mounting system permits up to 24 channels to be mounted in just 1U of rack space, with configurable rear-mount power supplies available if desired.

Smart diagnostic LEDs, including a SafeView display on PoE models, provide instant confirmation of cable-dependant power availability, and feedback of remote link status and other diagnostic information, for fast, confident installation.
