that's a no... besides the electrician way of thinking...you still have to terminate it in a jack- which will not allow it... for the OP, id call the manufacture and confirm... im not sure why it wouldn't work with the booster. ethernet doesn't mean that the video signal is wireless... its still hard wired to a dvr...Can't multiple pairs be paralleled?
Assuming that the ethernet connection only requires two pair (some use all four), you could parallel the other two for power to reduce voltage drop. However you still have the data distance limitation of 333 ft. on the data pairs. So that's not going to help. You're going to have to get your POE switch closer to the camera or figure out a shorter route. A better way is to run fiber with integral power conductors out to a fiber/ethernet converter located with the camera.Can't multiple pairs be paralleled?
(Don't bet on that.)Take a 500' box of Cat 6, Hook up the camera and power and see if it works. Leave the wire in the box. Also, you can see what the VD drop is. If it works, it works. The worst case scenario is it will probably work but have some dropped frames. You may not notice.
Doesn't matter about TCP/UDP/or whatever layer 3 protocol; it's a layer 0 and 1 problem. They may cause problems at layers 2 and above.The 100m is for data to make the spec of the cable... I'm not sure, but the video may be running under UDP, not TCP which it doesn't matter if some frames are dropped. It will keep pushing out the signal no matter how the screen looks since the Ack/Nak is different... I think I explained this to be clear as mud.
Exactly what I said. All academic. Maybe I'll put one through the test. I have a bunch of Panasonic IP's on the self. I still would like to know what the VD is in the real world scenario. As far as 0 and 1's, I wonder if it knows when it goes over 100 meters, lets say to 101? The certification is based on the speed of which the cable is saying it will perform at. I can't remember what certification number it is. Being a ham and tearing everything up in the garage from engines to building Heathkits, and now Arduino projects have their downsides in my inability to not tinker with the stuff.(Don't bet on that.)
However it probably won't, and it surely won't pass any certification test, which most customers insist on.

So, sure, try that as an academic exercise, but it would very bad practice to install TP ethernet over 100m (330').
It doesn't of course know exactly. Some transceiver/cable pairings will reliably work past that, but it's still out of spec.As far as 0 and 1's, I wonder if it knows when it goes over 100 meters, lets say to 101?

The spec will get people where they can't see the forest for the trees. I live inside the box when in business given that I have to meet spec. But, I'm always thinking outside the box when it comes to why things work in the first place.It doesn't of course know exactly.

As a ham, think about this as an 125MHz* balanced analog transmission line, not as 1's and 0's. You have not only the DC resistance of the line, but the distributed reactance and pair-to-pair cross-talk. There's also the slight difference in length of each pair due to the different twist ratios; the PHY at each end is supposed to deal with that. For some light reading, or a headache , look at the Ethernet physical spec... there's a lot of wizardry involved; it's rather interesting if you're into the low-level workings.
*not actually correct, IIRC the rate is 125M baud (symbols/second, not bits/second)
Kind of amazing that it works at all :happyyes:.
Beat me to it. I was just going to recommend a directional WiFi link. They make small outdoor directional antennas for pretty cheap. Check out Amazon and Ubiquiti Networks' stuff. Of course, you'll need power out there unless you do a solar/battery DC system.Have you considered the option of going WiFi on this? With a good transmitter and receiver, and possibly some narrow focus parabolic antennas on each end it might work. POE does have a distance limit and as you get there, speed drops and reliability of connection becomes more of an issue.
