FAQ

You've got questions? We've got answers!

2.5 Gb/s at 656 feet? 10 Mb/s at 850 feet? Says who!?

Don't just take our word for it - You can certify it yourself with Fluke or other handheld testers! Want a 25 year warranty to go with that? No problem!

What's the maximum distance I can use the GameChanger Cable?

That depends on the power and bandwidth requirements of your application. At a minimum you can expect 1Gbps at 200 meters (656 feet) and you can expect 10 Mb/s at 259 meters (850 feet.) You can also expect to deliver 802.3at Type 2 "PoE+" up to 850 feet.


Does the GameChanger work for all applications?

Yes, the GameChanger Cable is agnostic to the type of Ethernet traffic you are running. We have seen customers using GameChanger to solve long distance cabling issues for access points, surveillance cameras, VoIP phones, point of sale devices, access control, digital signage, and much more.

What's the difference between the GameChanger and a standard CAT6?

The Gamechanger has been designed with an increased gauge size, carefully designed twisting and specialty materials to be optimized for long distance Ethernet applications.

What connectors should be used with GameChanger?

GameChanger cables have 22 AWG conductors. So when punching down to a jack or a patch panel, any Cat6 connectivity will work. If you are using a RJ45 connector, check out this termination guide.

How do I ensure reliability at maximum distance?

For a reliable, extra long distance run (greater than 200 meter / 656 feet) you should be using a managed PoE Switch. For any port connected to a longdistance GameChanger run, make sure it is set to 10 Mbps. Don't assume auto configuration will sufficiently detect the bandwidth and adjust. If you'reusing a network camera, you'll need to be sure your video stream is configured appropriately as well. If you're unsure how much bandwidth your video stream will use, you can consult an online tool like this.

Who is having success with the GameChanger today?

Several of the world's largest security integrators (6 out of the top 8) began deploying the GameChanger as early as 2016. Consultants and Engineers around the world have specified the GameChanger as a critical part of their solutions for everything from airports to banks and parking structures to amusement parks.
