Product Description

Highwire Ethernet over Coax Device

HIGHWIRE turns any analog video cable into a high-speed network connection. This allows the replacement of analog IP cameras with IP cameras without installation of any new cabling, which can save some 30-40% of the system cost. Universal connections for coax, network and power, with no user set-up required, make installation easy and fast.

Simple retro-fit of IP cameras in place of analogue
Full 100 Base-T Ethernet performance
Supports multiple IP cameras (with switch)
Fully automatic - no configuration required
Up to 300m on RG59, 500m on RG11
Powered by legacy PSU at camera end
Rack mount option for control room end

cuts installation costs
• Uses legacy analogue video cabling
• No IP address or other setup required
• Supports mega-pixel cameras
• Supports any network device - fully transparent 100Base-T Ethernet
• Fast install - less time on site • Full-speed over 300m (1000ft) of RG-59
• Compact - fits inside camera housings
• Flexible low voltage input - can use old   camera supply
• Rack-mount option for control room end

Signal Converter HIGHWIRE turns any existing analogue video cable (coax) into a high-speed Ethernet connection. This allows a networked IP camera to replace an analogue 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.

Simple Installation HIGHWIREs are used in pairs and installing them is extremely simple. One HIGHWIRE unit is connected to each end of the co-axial 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.
