D-Link reveals new POE Network Switches with ONVIF support
DGS-1100 MP/MPP Series high PoE power budget smart switches, first in the market with ONVIF support specifically designed for Video IP Surveillance
D-Link, the leading IP camera supplier in Europe, revealed the world’s first Power over Ethernet (PoE) network switches, featuring ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) support. The new DGS-1100 MP/MPP Series Gigabit Smart Managed Surveillance PoE+ Switches have been designed to dramatically simplify the installation and management of IP CCTV systems.
D-Link’s unique inclusion of ONVIF support enables these high performance Ethernet switches to automatically recognise both D-Link and third party IP cameras, Network Video Recorders (NVRs) and other IP devices such as access control systems. Automatic device recognition via ONVIF means installation teams just need to plug network cables into CCTV cameras and other components, connect the cables to the smart switch and the system’s elements will appear in the switch’s dedicated surveillance optimised web interface.
From this straightforward interface, the installer or operator can see real-time information about their surveillance network, such as surveillance topology, device status, PoE consumption data and network bandwidth utilisation. With full control over the PoE ports, at the click of a mouse cameras can be configured and managed; for example to set schedules for camera operation or to restart a device.
Paul Routledge, Country Manager UK and Ireland said:
“With security a critical concern for businesses, the demand for IP based surveillance is growing due to its ease of integration with other systems. The introduction of the DGS-1100 MP/MPP Switches means that a security system installer can confidently plug and play complete IP surveillance systems, without needing to ‘deep dive’ into layers of networking configuration. With the move to PoE eliminating the need for power cabling, and the simplification that our unique implementation of ONVIF offers, professional CCTV installation is entering a new age of speed and simplicity.”
With each of the DGS-1100 MP/MPP Series being a fully featured smart switch, security installer’s benefit from advanced networking features and network engineers have a full range of capabilities available. D-Link’s auto-surveillance VLAN function is one example; it automatically creates a bandwidth protected virtual network for video, ensuring high-quality delivery of real-time video for monitoring and control, without compromising the transmission of conventional network data. This feature means that in many locations DGS-1100 MP/MPP Series Switches can serve double duty, supporting a surveillance system and simultaneously providing high speed connectivity to the business.
To support networks in small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) as well as enterprise branch office deployments, each switch in the series offers the option to enter a conventional networking control panel giving the fine grained control of all networking options that IT teams expect. These latest DGS-1100 MP/MPP Series Switches feature 6 KV surge protection, are available with various power budgets, and support high powered PoE standards to ensure maximum flexibility and the opportunity to simplify networks.
