Actelis Networks and IVC deploy IP cameras over copper networks

Solution combines IVC cameras with Actelis intelligent Ethernet Access Devices


FREMONT, Calif. & NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Actelis Networks®, the leading global supplier of Ethernet over copper solutions, today announced it is collaborating with industrial video specialist, Industrial Video and Control (IVC), to provide sophisticated IP-based surveillance and security networks over copper networks. IVC is a manufacturer of IP-based cameras and developer of advanced software for managing networks of video systems. The two leading vendors in their markets have been working closely to develop a single integrated IP-based surveillance solution that combines IVC’s state-of-the art, IP-based video cameras with Actelis’ ML600 family of intelligent Ethernet Access Devices (EADs).

As part of IVC’s ongoing collaboration with Actelis, IVC has developed an innovative IP-based camera that, when paired specifically with Actelis’ ML600 system, significantly eases deployment, reduces operational expenditures, and provides more reliable and higher bandwidth broadband transmission over copper networks for advanced video surveillance. The joint solution is a major step forward for schools, municipalities, shipping ports, oil, petrochemical and pharmaceutical refineries, as well as military bases and other industrial sites where 365x24x7 security through video surveillance is paramount.

“This new IVC product takes advantage of our ML600’s unique ability to deliver both power and data over the copper network,” said Eric Vallone, vice president of marketing at Actelis. “By leveraging power over Ethernet, Actelis’ ML600 system can power the IVC video camera, creating a complete solution that can be remotely installed and then operated in extreme temperatures as low as -29C degrees.”

According to Clarke Esler, product marketing manager at IVC, this joint solution dramatically simplifies camera setup time and reduces the cost of installation, since the Actelis ML600 system delivers both network connectivity and power to IVC’s new camera, the IVC PTZ-310-NC32.

“We believe that Actelis’ elegant ML600 hardware solution, along with our enterprise-class camera management software, has great appeal for customers with large campuses or multi-campus organizations who rely on their existing copper infrastructure,” said Esler.

With Actelis, IVC can now offer quality, scalable IP video solutions across existing copper infrastructures. IVC’s enterprise-class software enables applications to easily scale from a handful of indoor and outdoor cameras at a single building to large networks of IVC’s IP-based cameras across multiple campuses. Deploying across Actelis-managed networks provides sufficient bandwidth to ensure high quality, high frame rate video. This represents a significant step forward for the video surveillance industry because it allows the latest camera systems to be deployed readily at industrial and commercial enterprise sites whose copper-based network facilities were installed decades ago for voice communications, but can now be revitalized to next-generation IP-based networks with fiber-like bandwidth and guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS).
