Ethernet Over Coax concept and creation came to fruition in 2003 when Enable-IT adapted it’s Ethernet Extender technology for transport over Coax wiring. Although the Original 10BASE5 10Mbps Ethernet was developed in the early 1970’s to use 50 Ohm impedance Coaxial cabling as a means to commonly communicate between computing systems.

Ethernet over Coax (EoC) is a family of technologies that supports the transmission of Ethernet packet frames over 50 or 75 Ohm coaxial cable.
Make the most of your existing analogue coax infrastructure and utilize Ethernet Over Coax cable technology for an easy changeover to a modern Ethernet IP-based video surveillance system. We recommend for long distance Ethernet, to use a Coax Ethernet Extender that can go up to 9,000 feet.

The original and current standard Ethernet over Coax products are point-to-point solutions (Coax Ethernet Extenders). That means there is one locally powered transceiver at the camera and one locally powered receiver at the control room. While this is perfect for small systems. A better solution for these larger systems that still want to benefit from utilizing their existing analogue infrastructure is use a PoE switch, with four PoE ports and one coax uplink port at the camera.

Ethernet over Coax Ethernet technology leveraging Coax Ethernet Extenders will enable more installers to approach an IP migration project with a new set of financial and installation options. The end result is a high-performance system that saves all parties involved time, money, and concerns over flexibility and adaptability.

Ethernet over Coax products (Coax Ethernet Extenders or Coax Extenders) provide an easy-to-connect, transparent network bridge between existing Ethernet LAN ports and Coaxial cabling that is very simple to use, reliable, and offers seamless integration between the existing coaxial cable and the Ethernet backbone of the new system.

It is important to note that this technology is not compatible with existing Live TV over coax signaling (CATV) as the frequencies step on the EoC signals and RF channels on the coax are taken over by video RF encoding. Video Cable Service companies have a Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification called DOCSIS that is a separate technology built into Cable modems for Internet access by Video Cable service providers.

Coax Ethernet Extender kits typically only support point to point single line communications. Meaning you use a single coax cable run from one Coax extender unit to another Coax extender unit only. The Enable-IT 821 Ethernet Extender kit using coax can support up to 9 Coax Ethernet Extender units on the same single coax cable run. – A feat that no other competitor has the ability of doing.
