Outreach enables longer cabling for camera installations.

Veracity : 22 January, 2008  (New Product)
Power over Ethernet (PoE) and longer distances from network switches now possible for camera networks using Outreach from Veracity.
With the newly available Outreach from Veracity, you can simultaneously send LAN as well as Power Over Ethernet (up to Class 3 when used with Outbreak) over 1,000 feet of Ethernet cable...without the need for midspan power!

Outreach doubles, triples or even quadruples the normal 330ft (100m) CAT5 cable run length for 100BaseT networks. It forwards both Ethernet and PoE for another 330ft (100m) using a patent-pending power-processing scheme, and multiple units can be employed in series for even longer distances, with no degradation in network speed or latency. Outreach itself is powered by a PoE network switch (or PoE injector) and so requires no separate power connection in the middle of the cable, making it extremely easy to connect and power IP cameras two or three times further than previously possible without going to fibre or installing midspan power sources.

Cables in an Ethernet network are limited in length to 100 metres (328 feet), however in some installations it is necessary to connect network devices that are more than 100 metres apart.

Outreach solves this problem by acting as a signal repeater, which can be used to join net! work cables together and create a longer overall network link. A single Outreach allows a network camera to be installed up to 200 metres (656 feet) away from a network switch. The Outreach is connected in-line after the first 100 metres of cable have been laid, allowing a further length of up to 100 metres to be installed up to the camera.

The Outreach draws its own power from the network switch using Power Over Ethernet (POE), and also forwards PoE to the camera. Power cable installation is only required at the network switch.

Outreach is compatible with all IEEE-compliant PoE devices such as IP phones and Wireless Access Points and requires no setting-up on installation, as it configures its power and data forwarding functions automatically.

In addition, two or more Outreach units may be connected in a chain to extend cable reach beyond! 200 metres (656 feet). Maximum range and PoE power can also be increased by installing an Outsource power injector.
