Networking aproximately 150yds
Posted on 2006-11-07
I have been charged with extending a network to a remote office over 150yds away.
I have Seen RJ45 --> SC Fibre (2km) media converters on Ebuyer, and plan to run the first 20mtrs or so from the Switch with standard RJ45, then switch to SC Fibre (using a media converter) for 130Mtrs or so, before switching back to Ethernet for the remaining run to the client PC (about 20 mtrs).
Also, if this is a viable solution, will i be able to get power to the Media Converters (which will most likely be up in the roofspace) by using Power over Ethernet Adapters??
Can anyone advise me if this will work, and what pitfalls i may experience - alternatively - if anyone has a better \ easier solution............
PS - i`ve tried Ethernet over mains but unfortunately the 2 buildings are on seperate phases.
Thanks for your help,
