Outdoor IP intercoms, CCTV cameras, and access control card readers may be widely dispersed throughout large facilities, far outside the bounds of a client’s hard wired network connections. Indoor wireless is often not an option due to walls and structures, heavy equipment, or inventory and racking. Also, high bandwidth megapixel cameras may overload wireless networks. Vigitron extends the limits of high speed Ethernet many times over, and can provide extended PoE over UTP and coax.
