Understanding Ethernet over Coax


Ethernet over Coax, which is often abbreviated to EoC, allows internet data to travel through existing coaxial cables.


This means you’re able to enjoy high-speed internet without any additional wiring! Put simply, you can use your existing TV cables to connect your devices to the internet and to each other.


Imagine you have a TV cable in one room and want to get internet in another room without new cables. This is where EoC comes into play.


You’ll use two small devices, called Ethernet over Coax bridges. One of these connects to your internet router and the TV cable and the other connects to the TV cable in the other room.


The internet signal then travels along the TV cable from the first bridge to the second, where you can connect devices such as computers, games consoles, and smart TVs, to get internet.


It’s a great way to upgrade your internet without any huge installations.

Benefits for Home and Business Users


Using EoC has some really clear benefits for both business and home environments.


For homeowners, this tech allows for a more reliable home network for streaming, gaming, and smart home devices without major renovations needed. 


For businesses, it means a robust network capable of handling multiple heavy-duty tasks simultaneously with minimal disruptions and financial outlay.


Using EoC provides many overall benefits:


  • Utilises existing coax cabling

  • Cost-effective

  • Easy to install

  • High-speed internet connectivity

  • Reduced network congestion

  • Flexible and scalable

  • Reliability

  • Great coverage


Technical Specifications and Compatibility


EoC adaptors can deliver speeds ranging from 100Mbps to 1Gbps, making them great for most home and small office applications. They’re also capable of operating over distances of several hundred metres.


EoC systems are designed to be compatible with existing coax infrastructure and network protocols (TCP/IP) which makes them easy to integrate into most network setups.

FAQs

How Does An EoC Bridge Work?


It converts ethernet data into a format that can travel over coaxial cables and then converts it back into ethernet data at the other end, effectively extending your network through coaxial wiring.

What types of coaxial cables are compatible with EoC bridges?


EoC bridges typically work with all 75Ω coaxial cables, however, we always recommend using a benchmarked type 100 cable for best results.


Can I use EoC bridges with other types of wiring, like power lines or telephone lines?


No, EoC bridges are specifically designed for coaxial cables. If you want to use other types of wiring, you would need different technologies like powerline communication (PLC) or G.hn over twisted-pair.


Is EoC bridge installation complicated?


Installation is generally straightforward. Connect the transmitter/master unit to your network source, and the receiver/client unit to your desired device, and ensure both ends are plugged into coaxial cables. There is no GUI set-up needed.

Can I use multiple EoC bridges in the same network?


Yes, you can have up to 7 clients for every master in the same network to connect different devices and extend network coverage over coaxial cables.

Conclusion


In conclusion, EoC marks a huge step forward in networking tech and is a fantastic way to upgrade your network using existing infrastructure.


The launch of our Gigabit Ethernet over Coax bridge further enhances this technology's appeal and makes for a great choice.


So whether you’re a homeowner looking to improve your network or a business needing a dependable network, Ethernet over Coax is a great solution.
