500m PoE switch for IP camera
One of the biggest challenges business owners and home users face when installing new IP cameras is distance. Standard PoE has an Ethernet cable distance limit of 100 meters for data and power transmission, regardless of whether it is PoE, PoE+ or PoE++. However, with a long-range PoE switch, this limitation is eliminated. The long range PoE switch enables data and power transmission of up to 500 meters via an Ethernet cable to power IP devices such as PoE cameras, WAPs, etc. This allows more PoE cameras to be installed at greater distances. With the long range PoE switch, there is no need to run expensive fiber optic cables or install additional hardware such as media converters in the middle. However, since most PoE cameras do not support long-range capability, an additional PoE extender must be installed for each connection to transmit the signal back to the switch.
