Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switches are the world’s first and only ONVIF Conformant Switches tested and available. In addition to traditional switch management functions, these switches also feature integrated camera management functions and PoE self-healing support.
, a global leader in reliable SMB and consumer networking and surveillance solutions, has announced that its Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switch Series is currently shipping and available for purchase. These Smart Surveillance Switches are the first network switches to be designated as ONVIF Conformant, supporting ONVIF Profile Q. TRENDnet’s Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switches are integrated with camera management functions which are easily accessible within the surveillance switch’s user interface. The new Smart Surveillance Switch Series were originally planned to be on display at ISC West 2020 in Las Vegas.
The Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switches Series launches with two models, the 18-Port Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switch (TPE-3018LS) and the 12-Port Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switch (TPE-3012LS). Camera management functions available through the switch’s GUI include modifying camera administrator access, performing camera firmware upgrades, e-map support, and changing IP addresses. The ONVIF Conformant designation ensures users that Profile Q requirements have been met, which guarantees a level of interoperability with other ONVIF devices, such as NVRs, IP cameras, and software.
The PoE self-healing support on these Smart Surveillance Switches include both PoE device-recovery, and switch power scheduling. If the Smart Surveillance Switch fails to respond, or if the network connection to a connected device is interrupted, TRENDnet’s Gigabit PoE Smart Surveillance Switch Series will auto-reboot or power cycle the affected PoE port and/or the entire switch. The PoE self-healing support featured on these Smart Surveillance Switches helps to reduce overall network downtime and the amount of onsite support required, which can be crucial especially during critical network operations.
TRENDnet Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switches are the first and only official ONVIF Conformant network switches currently available. They feature both PoE+ and standard RJ-45 ports, as well as SFP slots for long-distance fiber connectivity. The Smart Surveillance Switch Series also feature long-range PoE support that can reach up to 656 ft. (200m), double the current PoE standard distance. The front-facing LED display shows useful PoE power usage statistics. Managed switch features include IPv6, QoS, IGMP snooping, port bandwidth controls, and spanning tree support.
TRENDnet’s Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switches are available online on the TRENDnet Store, or worldwide through select distribution and retail partners. TRENDnet originally planned to have working demos of the new Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance Switch Series at their booth at ISC West; however, an alternative means to demo and review the switches and its interface are available on the respective product pages on the TRENDnet website.
