A 100m Earthcabel OM4 for 1 GBit (mimited to 550m) cost around 280?,
while an OM3 Earthcable for 100Base-FX with Duplex SC connectors cost
Also I have 8 Microsense Switches (1x 100Base-FX, 7x 100Base-TX) which
you can get on eBay for less then 30?/piece including shipping.
The TP-Link MC100CM Media Converter (100Base-TX->100Base-FX with
Dupex SC) cost less then 32?/piece (Brandnew with waranty) directly
at TP-Link on eBay or lesser (refurbished) from other sellers. I
got 3 of them in Germany for 47? including DHL shipping to Estonia.
Need still 3 Media Converters more and maybe 2-3 spare.
Doing this with GBit would cost more then 3000? in total because of
the very expensive OM4 Earthcabel.
Also a 1GBit Network card cost roughly 140? in Germany. In Estonia
it is out of question to buy it (200?).
Oh, to isolate the Serverbunker from the IP-Cams, the ALCASA
Elektronik AG offerd me OM3 Earthcable with 8 Fasern (???) and
on each end 4 Duplex SC Connectors, which I can put immediately
into the ground to the Portal of my Farm. This Allow me to install
immediately the first Microsense Switch with the SIP Interphone and
the first IP-Cam plus a Siemns LOGO! 2BA8.
For the IP-Cams on the street corners on the Farm I would then need
only the Duplex SC Adapter and continue with 100-150m Fiber Patchkabel.
Next year I can continue with another 200m Patchcable for the forest
for which I need to slice the street an need an authorisation, but
after the winter this is no problem, because it is only a 8t light
street which is repaired after each winter (do not ask, why estonians
I hope, I get all prices together in the next days
Thanks in advance
