The Siqura ECOplug Ethernet-over-Coax converter inserts into Siqura IP cameras or video coders. It enables the streaming of IP video over coaxial cable and is manufactured by Siqura BV.
The ECOplug allows installers to re-use existing coaxial cable infrastructures, such as those used in traditional analogue CCTV systems, for new, IP-based surveillance systems. The nomination is in recognition of the savings this affords installers, through reduced cabling costs and installation time. It also recognizes the simple upgrade path ECOplug? provides for installers migrating from analogue to IP video solutions.
The ECOplug is part of Siqura’s ‘Small Form-factor Pluggable’ (SFP) range; a universal connectivity solution for Ethernet networks. The full SFP range includes XSNet Ethernet over optical fiber and the ECOplug? for Ethernet over coax. Siqura’s HD camera and video encoder ranges can all be fitted with Siqura SFPs and connected directly to any network. This offers installers a simple and flexible upgrade path, from existing analogue-based coaxial networks to high-speed Ethernet.
The ECOplug transmits Ethernet up to 700m over coaxial cable. Installers upgrading to IP, using Siqura’s SFP options, can take immediate advantage of many other network-enabled features.
These include Megapixel or Full HD video; system scalability; remote access for video management; video analytics for system efficiency; wireless technology for installation cost-savings; and simpler integration with other network-based security and management systems.
