Used as a pair, two Allied Telesis MMC6006 units provide up to 300Mpbs total bandwidth over coax cabling, at distances up to 3 km, to provide the ideal solution for data over coax. Standard Ethernet operation is preserved end-to-end, retaining VLAN tags and Ethernet MAC information across the link, while higher layer protocols are passed transparently.
Private coax wiring can be used to provide broadband access to Internet services, including video streaming, gaming and e-mail. There is no need to rewire premises with expensive cabling to provide broadband Ethernet services.
Digital Video over Coax
Digital cameras running on IP networks offer many benefits in comparison
to analog equipment, such as high definition and software image analysis.
However, the cost of laying new Cat 5e cable for network devices can be prohibitive. The MMC6006 has the solution—you can use existing coax cable for the video signal.
In fact, the existing coax cable can be a better way to transmit digital data than UTP. Coax cable has a higher bandwidth, with lower noise and signal loss, meaning it can carry more data, over greater distances.
