Outdoor Security with IP Technology

Video Surveillance has accelerated in the post 9/11 world.  Key points of entry at nations' borders such as airports, shipping ports, and highway checkpoints as well as key infrastructure locations such as bridges and power utility substations have experienced unprecedented growth--as have corporate premises. Reasons for this growth include the increasing economy and ease-of-use for installing and using networked IP video cameras and data devices.

New enabling technologies such as Power over Ethernet (PoE) have brought IP Video Surveillance to areas where it might not have otherwise been practical or economically feasible.  Sometimes, traditional power wiring for AC power is not available or easy to install.  Power over Ethernet (PoE) has emerged to allow devices such as networked cameras to receive power over the same cabling that carries the network data.  PoE simplifies the installation and operation, keeping the cabling secure while not interfering with the network operation.

Environmentally Hardened Managed Switches
Use managed switches where you need a precise view of high volume traffic areas, for high resolution video or remote status and diagnostic information. An example of this would be a network of video cameras spread over a campus or manufacturing facility.  Managed Switches


Environmentally Hardened Unmanaged Switches  

Use environmentally hardened unmanaged switches for secure security surveillance applications where video is limited to a small number of endpoints. An example of this would be a camera mounted on a pole monitoring a single dedicated location.  Unmanaged Switches

Video surveillance cameras have also grown in popularity and use as an effective tool for traffic control and management. Video cameras can provide real time, full-motion feedback as traffic problems develop, whether at a city intersection or on a major freeway. New Power over Ethernet (PoE) models add simplicity and convenience.
