AMG’s PoE+ switches facilitate remote IP video surveillance system installation

A remote or difficult to access site is often one that can benefit from single-cable Ethernet provision, particularly when installing a video surveillance system. But conventional Ethernet services only allow 100m worth of cabling, and fibre installation can often be cost prohibitive. What’s the solution? UK networking and transmission specialist AMG Systems has come up with an innovative answer: industrial semi-managed switches with the capability to extend Ethernet and Power over Ethern...

Round Table Discussions

How can IP networked systems adapt to lost connectivity?

IP network dependability matters in physical security and safety applications, given that a company’s assets and people are at risk. There have been strides in the areas of network dependability, fault-tolerance, reliability, and survivability. However, networks (or affordable ones, at any rate) still cannot ensure near-100 percent uptime, which is why system designers acknowledge and plan for the possibility of a network outage. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: How can/...

How to choose between an NVR and VMS running on an off-the-shelf server

Software drives video solutions in the IP environment, but often that software is a pre-installed component of a purpose-built network video recorder (NVR). In other cases, software solutions are sold separately and then installed (usually by the integrator) on a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) server. But how can an integrator or end user decide which approach is best for them? We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a pre-configure...

How green is the security industry?

Environmentalism is a universal consideration in most business sectors in 2016. Whether seeking to provide greener products, or looking for new ways to minimise waste of manufacturing processes, most companies are involved to some degree with environmental concerns. Green has not traditionally been a big driver in the security industry, but there are indications the profile of environmentalism is increasing. We asked this week's Expert Panel: How green (environmentally friendly) is the security...
