I am wondering what people are doing for PL over distance. Thing's were pretty straight forward when I used to run 300' feet of multicore for our signal snake. The shows we are doing now are bigger (channel count) and in much larger spaces. For this particular application the primary signal conduits are a 300' Cat 5e(3) and for longer distances single mode fiber. The planned network will have managed swictches divided into 2 VLAN's, One for DANTE data and the other for "Control" data. FWIW, The "Control" side is essentially for anything not Dante, i.e. Wireless Workbench, Dugan Control Software, Yamaha Studio Manager, and perhaps internet if it can be done with no adverse effect to operations. We are also planning to add an "outdoor" wireless access point for ipad's etc.
Currently for PL we have a two-channel Clear-Com MS702 base station connected to a Tempest wireless system. We also use the Clear-Com combiners that put two channels of PL on one mic cable.
I am wondering how we can best run our current gear either within the newly planned ethernet network infrastructure or if there is another solution to help us handle these longer distances. And, how we might better extend the range of the Tempest wireless PL. Any help will be appreciated!
