Repeater or other alternative to connect facility 500 yards away

Imagine between my data center and a security guard facility 500 yards away, I need to provide an ethernet drop.

The undergroud/conduit intermediate vaults are dirty, susceptible to humidity. I have no power available there (other than the PoE provided by the switch 3750 such ethernet cable is connected to).

My question is, is there any rugged repeater or ethernet booster available there which can take advantage of PoE?

Can you pull a fiber cable? W/o power, you're pretty limited.

I was trying to find a quick workaround, but I don't see such PoE repeater avaialable. It sounds like I will have to pull fiber.

Re: Repeater or other alternative to connect facility 500 yards

Hi,

Can you use Wireless? Wireless can use PoE and its the quick workaround.

Using fibre is costly (including fibre port in both switches), and you may need armoured fibre depending on how exposed the path between DC and Security Guard facility to external threats (environment, etc..).

Dandy
