Network Camera Installation on 1000 Mtrs. area

So far i have only installed the network cameras with below 50-60 metres cabling on Cat6/Cat5. Now i was wondering what if i have 1000 meters of distance from Camera location to my Server room. Shall i install switches on every 100 meters (each one feeding the next) or do fibre (which i don't have much knowledge of).

I am open to suggestions if someone could suggest a better way to connect the cameras to my 1000 meter path like fiber, DSL, etc..

I would user fiber. One switch at each end of the run and just connect the camera to the end switch.  If you are going to just run 100Mb between the switches, multimode fiber will work, if going Gigabit, then you want to go with single mode fiber.

You could go for an ethernet extender, like this one. They have products that go up to 1800 meters. I have no experience with them though.

So how is it going to be if i am going for fibre connection like how the structure would be. As long as i have a basic idea of this fibre connection, i guess we need a media converter near to camera and the fibre will terminate at the fiber switch and again converting it to the switch ? isn't it ?

Yes, I would go for 2 ethernet-fiber converters, like this one. You need to think about laying fiber optics cabling as well, I can't advise you there due to lack of experience from my side ;)

If you have never installed fiber, I would not suggest trying it with out some form of training. I suggest getting a cabling vendor to run and terminate the fiber for your into a LC patch panel on both sides and then using the appropriate patch cables to get into your swith and/or media converter.

From someone who has used many of these devices, I would go with gerwinjansen's advice and purchase two so that they you won't have problems with the media conversion since your are converting with the same device at both ends.

I don't know how your building is situated, but my assumption is that you will be home running a fiber directly from one switch that has a fiber module to another switch with a fiber module. That being said, I see no need for converters or terminating fiber to a patch panel unless you plan on running multiple fibers to the remote location.
