ISC WEST 2019, LAS VEGAS & TORRANCE, Calif. – Apr. 10, 2019 -- TRENDnet® (www.TRENDnet.com), a global leader in reliable SMB and consumer networking and surveillance solutions, has unveiled a line of Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switches designed for use with IP cameras and surveillance networks. The Smart Surveillance Switches are managed switches that allow camera management features to be easily accessible from within the switch’s interface. Two of the new models are ONVIF® compliant PoE+ switches.
Camera management features accessible on TRENDnet’s Smart Surveillance Switches include viewing live surveillance camera video, updating and modifying administrator access, and upgrading camera firmware. Spanning tree support provides redundancy and fault tolerance to reduce network downtime. Additionally, the Smart Surveillance Switches support PD alive check and ping watchdog functions, adding another layer of fault tolerance, and potentially reducing the amount of service or onsite support needed.
The 12-port and 18-port models of the Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switches, respectively TPE-3012LS and TPE-3018LS, are ONVIF® compliant models. If communication fails to a camera, the ONVIF compliant switches will auto-reboot the switch and/or the PoE port to reduce downtime. The ONVIF PoE switches feature LED displays showing total PoE power, available power, and power-per-port. They also support long distance PoE+ networking up to 656 ft./200m away.
“TRENDnet’s Smart Surveillance Switches are designed to simplify the installation and management of surveillance networks, especially for integrators and installers,” said Evan Davis, senior manager, solutions engineering at TRENDnet. “These switches are optimized for the surveillance industry, and provide a graphical illustration of your switch and it’s connected devices, with pertinent information on the switch and each connected device.”
Each TRENDnet Smart Surveillance Switch features an easy-to-use web-based management interface. Advanced managed switch features include IPv6, LACP to increase bandwidth, VLANs for virtual device groupings, QoS for traffic prioritization, IGMP Snooping for multicast traffic, and por bandwidth controls. TRENDnet Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switches are equipped with both PoE+ ports and standard gigabit ports. SFP slots support long-distance fiber networking applications.
