Title: Cool gadget
Post by: EV607797 on May 18, 2021, 12:39:05 PM
I don't know if you were aware of these gadgets or not.  I'm sure they've been around for a while, but this is the first that I've actually looked into them.  I can't believe how low-priced they are, considering what they do.  I can't tell you how many times I've encountered situations where we've needed to extend network and phone line connections over long distances with few simple options other than media converters, IP phones, etc.  This device would also be handy for extending POTS lines if necessary to a remote site.  Although it only goes 328 feet over multi-mode, the built-in single-mode capability for up to 20 KM is impressive. 

We have a situation where a remote guard shack needs a phone line, a line for the gate controller and LAN.  The only existing facilites there are fiber for their cameras, but they have several spare strands that we can use.  How perfect!

Check it out.

Wow.  Can you imagine what something like that would have cost a decade or so back?

I remember when you could only do this an OPX circuit.

All I can think of are the dozens of construction trailer setups that we did on large sites in/around the DC metro area.  What a pain it was running fiber and copper for thousands of feet on poles, fences and underground in order to address one trailer on the opposite end of the project.  THOUSANDS of dollars and man hours for just a few phones and a computer.  And yes, Trace...  This stuff would have been $5K minimum back then!

It looks like it's 300 meters in multi-mode which would be about 900 feet.

Oh yeah.  Big difference.  Oops!
