Utilising the X-Net OPT-LAN series of products, Ethernet based services such as automatic number plate recognition, can be transmitted, along with multiple streams of uncompressed video over greatly extended distances using optical fibre.

Extended Transmission Distance COE X-Net fibre transmission modules can transmit up to 144 channels of video at distances of up to 180km using a single optical fibre!


Advanced Fibre Transmission Equipment COE’s X-Net® fibre transmission range of integrates unique technologies and features to ensure that the highest quality video transmission possible is maintained, and that an optimum networking solution can be achieved for projects of any size or scope.

Video Transmission: Making The Link Copper based Ethernet transmission distance is limited to 90 metres. In comparison COE fibre optic products can transmit video up to 180km. The facility to transmit video over extended distances is very useful and suits many applications in the transportation industry and for sites or groups of sites covering larger physical areas. Transmission equipment quality can have a major effect on the resultant quality of video footage at the control room. No matter how high the quality of captured video or how sophisticated a recording and management solution is, without high quality video transmission equipment, a video surveillance system will never perform to its full potential.

The X-Net® Philosophy The X-Net range has been developed in adherence with the following values:

• Flexibility, scalability & adaptability. A fully universal system capable of accommodating any CCTV project. • Maintaining highest quality transmission over any distance and across any network. • Redundancy, redundancy, redundancy! Ensuring video fidelity at all times.


Intelligent Design, Innovative Features With over 20 years providing advanced video transmission technologies, COE has remained at the forefront of the market, integrating new features and functionalities as they become available. Some of the core features of the X-Net range are listed below.

Advanced Optical Technology COE’s X-Net fibre modules are fitted with Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) optical laser ports. SFP optics have a number of key benefits over traditional laser optics. These include:

• Signal transmission over twice the distance of traditional fibre lasers, extending potential transmission range from a single light source to over 180km!

• Replaceable in seconds. SFP optics can be interchanged in seconds, eliminating downtime from faulty lasers and reducing the requirement for costly spares holding at site.

• CWDM capabilities. These highly tuned devices may utilise coarse wave division multiplexing (CWDM). This development allows the user to increase video channel count to as many as 144 channels from each module over a single optical fibre.

Future-proofing. Optical fibre will be

a medium of choice for video transmission over long distances, high channel counts and high security networks for years to come. X-Net fibre modules, you will receive the latest technology in this field, ensuring compliance with future developments in fibre optics.

Hybrid Networking Capabilities The X-Net range includes modules with capabilities to transmit and receive video over both optical fibre and Ethernet. These products include the X-Net Ethernet Switch and the X-Net OPT-LAN series of products. Equipment such as this is well suited for applications in hybrid network environments and these products have been implemented in some of the world’s most prolific CCTV networks.

Reliability Through Design To ensure that networks remain resilient regardless of acts of sabotage, path loss or individual/multiple device failure, the X-Net range has been developed with a number of integrated features which safe-proof against network downtime. These include dual power supply options, universal network status management products, full redundancy proofing, SFP optical ports and more!


Digital Fibre Transmission Core to the success of the X-Net range is a powerful set of fibre transmission products. X-Net fibre modules combine the highest quality fibre optic video transmission available in the market with a range of innovative features and product enhancements. By creating a flexible range of single and multi-channel products, scalable, cost-effective solutions can be engineered for projects of any size.

Various Fibre Transmission Options

Designed for Large Networks Flexible for Every Network X-Net and X-Stream have been designed to operate either in boxed housings, or through a universal racking system. Fibre transmission modules may be fitted alongside Ethernet video servers, power supplies and passive optical devices in a common rack to accommodate every video transmission technology requirement for sites of any size and complexity.


Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) enables simultaneous transmission of up to 144 channels of video across a single optical fibre. Every product in the X-Net range is capable of CWDM transmission, permitting high density, diverse routing and drop & insert fibre transmission topologies. This technology vastly increases potential channel count capacity across networks with limited fibre infrastructure.

CWDM Optical Wavelength Range In the example shown, multiple X-Net modules are connected via fibre optic interconnects to an X-Net CWDM module, eliminating the requirement for costly and time consuming fibre splicing. Using this method, up to 18 separate X-Net modules (each configured to use different laser wavelengths), may be combined to provide high density transmission of video, plus optional audio, data and Ethernet over a single optical fibre.

Single Fibre, Multi-Site Configuration X-Net CWDM may be used in large networks with multiple surveillance sites to transmit video from many remote sites back to a single or multiple control areas.


X-Stream H.264 IP Video Encoding X-Stream video servers have been developed to provide video transmission over IP networks with superior picture quality at reduced bandwidths. Utilising the latest H.264 Main Profile algorithm, single or multiple channels of analogue video feed can be inputted into an X-Stream video server. This video is then digitally encoded and compressed for Ethernet transmission across an IP network.
