American Fibertek Inc. (afi) is introducing a new line of Ethernet over Coax (EoC) products designed to allow users to utilize their existing coax infrastructure to migrate to IP-based systems. Offering a wide range of products, the new Cop-R-Com EoC Series allows users to utilize their existing coax infrastructure to make the process of migrating from analog to IP as easy, efficient and cost-effective as possible.
 
“The transition from analog to IP-based video surveillance systems can be overwhelming for end users, especially when they face the prospect of not only upgrading their cameras but also removing and replacing their existing coax infrastructure as well,” said Jack Fernandes, president and CEO of AFI. “Our new Cop-R-Com EoC products offer all the right choices for deploying IP over coax to eliminate costly downtime and significantly lower the expense of migration.”
 
The new Cop-R-Com EoC solutions offer transmission speeds of up to 1000Mbps full duplex, extended range of up to 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) and PLC technology that accommodates multi-port receivers with integrated Ethernet gigabit switch technology. Security Link over Coax (SLOC) technology ensures compatibility with IP cameras from Samsung, Hikvision and other SLOC manufacturers. Receivers are available with Din rail, wall and rack mounting options for ultimate flexibility.
