“Do You Have Anything for That?”
At one of my last trade shows before large events were cancelled, I was speaking to a network design engineer and he told me about a project that had an unexpected issue. He went on to say everything went smoothly from planning to implementation. However, during the review and evaluation stage, an issue arose that
More Power to You! The New Standard for Power-over-Ethernet Has Been Ratified
The new IEEE 802.3bt standard for Power-over-Ethernet was ratified on September 27, 2018 and with it comes new demands for power. PoE standards regulate the delivery of power to end devices, and the IEEE 802.3bt standard is necessary for devices requiring higher levels of power such as PTZ security cameras, IP phones, wireless access points

Should the Security Camera Network be Separate from the Enterprise Network?
In the era of analog security cameras, the network connections were via coaxial cable and not the twisted pair copper cabling used for most enterprise network applications. This meant that enterprises needed to build a separate and dedicated security network to connect these devices to monitors and video management systems (VMS). But the latest security

Device Management System: The Little-Known Technology that Makes It Easier to Manage PoE+ Devices
While it’s safe to say that Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) was invented to support VoIP phones, I would argue that it has a bigger impact on network managers’ lives by making it much easier and more cost effective to connect multiple types of remote network devices to the network. The simplicity with which it’s possible to connect

Benefits of Combining Ethernet Extenders with DMS Switches
All network managers are familiar with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the ubiquitous network management system for Ethernet networks. But most are less familiar with Device Management Systems (DMS) a technology for managing the powered devices (PD) that are connected to Power-over-Ethernet plus (PoE+) switches. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through three newly
Security and Surveillance Integrators Share Their Views: What’s Happening on the Security Scene Today
We asked Security and Surveillance Integrators to tell us about their current projects and the trends they are seeing in the market today. Here are some tips from the feedback they shared: Time is money, and you don’t always get much of it. The typical time frame for a project from start to completion is
