Re: 4G, Long Distance From Router to Aerial

In reply to a post by jabuzzard:
True but as I recall also the issue is also to do with propagation delays and how the waveform gets distorted over distance. Which reducing the connectors involved won't really help.

Sure, I agree, which is why I was giving one possible reason why a long cable worked. Nobody should plan to do this, as you are gambling at the margins of anything working, and will in future have loads of problems as cable and connectors degrade, and as other interference arrives.

However the quoted 150m is going to be something like a 30 storey building. Which means a plemium rated cable too. I would go with hybrid fibre unless the distance can be shortened.

Yes, 150m is a very long way, I agree with fibre as the sensible choice.

one way that might work, but I really don't recommend it!
is to use 'powerline adaptors' at each end of a mains cable, gives both power, and data.
should destroy mw radio and vdsl for miles around!

Use a POE Extender mid span on the cable - will extend POE voltage and Ethernet to the distance required

Works very well - done this multiple times with long distant 4G CPE's

Ever since this thread started Iíve been wondering how any of the suggested solutions are going to be installed, unless the OP owns this 150m high building and is willing to fork out a lot for the installation.

To provide 4G internet for how many people from a router in the basement?

Itís almost April 1 stuff.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests 35-45Mpbs down, 9-15 up.

And, as often happens, no word back from OP, who has made one post.

Interesting, not aware of such devices before. Though the two linked are only 100Mbps, so no gigabit Ethernet. I guess gigabit ones exist though.

However one has to wonder what 20+ story building in the UK has such rubbish internet connectivity that they need to get a 4G signal into the basement?

We are only assuming it is in the UK as the OP does not give that information.

Hi All

Sorry for the delay in replying, I was away for Xmas.

I really appreciate all the replies, it gave me quite a bit to think about.

I think Ethernet\POE over Coax would be my best bet, so was wondering if the following would work:

A set of Hirewire Powerstar:

https://docs-emea.rs-online.com/webdocs/165a/0900766...

Power supply for above (better power over distance):

https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/cctv-power-supply-acc...

A MikroTik SXT LTE:

https://www.senetic.co.uk/product/RBSXTLTE3-7?gclid=...


It looks like I can transmit 25watts over 300m coax using their own power supply in the above scenario, so wondered if thre is an omni-direction aerial\modem I could use.

Thanks again

NNN


P.S. The connectivity is required on a building site - but the shard was not far offsmile
