Later this month, Teresa Hoffman, Berk-Tek’s Fiber Optic Product Business Manager, will be delivering a webinar about our OneReach™ solution. OneReach is a PoE extender system that combines optical fiber for long-distance gigabit transmission and copper conductors in a single system. The result? The ability to take PoE and PoE+ to distances that were previously unreachable – 3,600 ft and 2,400 ft respectively.

Yes, you read that correctly. You can take PoE more than 3,000 feet!

But more on that later. First, funny videos!

One of the most popular applications for our OneReach solution is security. In the spirit of short attention spans and good-natured distraction, check out these examples of surveillance videos gone bad. Or, should I say, surveillance videos gone hilariously right!

Okay, okay… back to OneReach!

OneReach is a game-changing solution for a lot of different applications. Think about security phones on a college campus, for example. Most of these now have cameras installed on them, so they require both data and power connections. Traditionally, mid-span equipment would need to be installed within 100m of the cameras. And since you can’t risk them losing power, if they’re run with local power, redundancy needs to built in.

With OneReach, these types of devices can be connected and powered by one length of composite cable that contains both fiber for long-distance data transmission and copper for PoE.  And since all power comes from the equipment room, UPS back-up is easy – required in only one central location to ensure uninterrupted power to all remote sites.

Or how about those wireless access points you want to in the ceiling of your auditorium? How can you cost-effectively connect and power those? OneReach could be your answer.

The list of installation challenges that OneReach could solve is extensive. In addition to WAPs in auditoriums and blue light phones, it’s been used for things like security along walking trails, card readers in warehouses, cameras  parking garages, and more.

Register for Teresa’s webinar to learn more about how this unique technology could solve some of your toughest installation challenges.
