Physical Security Solution for Better Network Surveillance

BETTER NETWORK, BETTER SURVEILLANCE

Physical Security has quickly evolved from standalone deployments in a slowly innovating industry and virtually no integration with business processes, into a broad-based, highly-networked and increasingly strategic market for organizations. The industry is turning toward standards-based solutions that integrate within existing Ethernet infrastructures and provide higher degrees of manageability and reliability, lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and application integration.

Proprietary video surveillance systems are unable to communicate with each other, leading to vendor lock-in and cost-prohibitive maintenance over time. Increasing use of HD cameras create serious performance bottlenecks in the network. With more cameras being introduced in more places, proprietary systems are unable to scale to incorporate new devices and applications.

The Solution

Extreme Networks delivers a best-of-breed physical security solution with high performance switching for a faster and cleaner installation, powerful monitoring capabilities, fewer truck rolls & access to a broad pool of Ethernet-trained technicians.

HIGHER NETWORK UPTIME

Reliable hardware, link redundancy and redundant power supplies and fans lead to higher network uptime.

REDUCE INSTALLATION COST AND TIME

Advanced scripting capabilities enable switches to be readily deployed in the field with minimal expertise. Since the switch port can be configured to only accept a specific camera model, field technicians have the peace of mind only an authorized camera will be installed. All switches offer long distance support in a variety of fiber modes to suit virtually any environment.

IMPROVE SECURITY AND GAIN DEPLOYMENT FLEXIBILITY

Extreme Networks Identity Manager and switch port features ensure only authorized IP cameras can connect to the network and are not replaced with laptops or other unauthorized devices. Access Control Lists (ACLs) and alerts provide an additional layer of security. The ability of Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch ports to remotely soft toggle IP cameras saves the overhead of an expensive
truck roll to fix the device.

ENHANCED PERFORMANCE

Extreme Networks has been an innovator in Ethernet since 1996 and offers some of the highest performing, non-blocking switches on the market. The company offers a wide range of managed PoE switches for growing needs of an organization. Support for PoE+ ensures enough power can be drawn by each camera connected to the switch port.

LOWER TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

Extreme Networks supports open platform, enabling products from virtually any vendor to be used in the environment. The company offers limited lifetime warranty and 24hr hardware replacement.
