D-Link Launches New High Power Surveillance-Specific Switches in ANZ
With extended PoE budget and surge protection on all PoE ports
SYDNEY, 9 March 2016: D-Link ANZ has expanded its family of Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches with two new models, the 10 port DGS-1100-10MP and 26 port DGS-1100-26MP, both specifically designed for surveillance applications. Critically both new switches have a significantly extended PoE budget, 6KV surge protection on all PoE ports, easy switch and network monitoring via a dashboard, automatic IP camera detection, automatic network topology detection, surveillance traffic optimisation and a setup wizard making them particularly straightforward to install and use.
The dashboard, designed to be IP camera specific, also gives easy access to diagnostics and error management. Both new switches also have fibre uplink ports and support ERPS for the kind of extra redundancy, failsafe and instantaneous (sub-50ms) recovery options usually found in much higher-end switches.
D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon said, “The advantages of these new switches is that they are specifically designed for surveillance applications. This means extended PoE budget and surge protection on all PoE ports as standard, whichever model you choose. Also automatic detection of surveillance traffic means video streams get secure and high priority forwarding, which avoids lost frames and video distortion. Not only are Power over Ethernet (PoE) applications such as IP phones, cameras and intercom systems becoming more commonplace in the home and business environment but so is the need to simplify their installation. These new switches do just that and more, and with a Standard mode for IT professionals and a simple Surveillance mode for non-IT professionals, there are easy set-up and management options for all.”
The new surveillance switches easily support high PoE power budgets for home and small businesses offering sophisticated PoE+ supporting up to 30 watts per port. This makes it easy to power and connect more PoE devices – such as VoIP phones, wireless access points or network cameras – simultaneously within a network.
These features, combined with the ability to connect and deliver power to devices located away from conventional mains electricity outlets, make the new surveillance PoE switches an affordable and flexible option.
Ideal for homes and businesses of all sizes both the DGS-1100-10MP and the DGS-1100-26MP Smart switches come with Plug-and-Play installation options for a simple, DIY set up.
As small businesses and their networks grow, traffic increases when additional devices and applications are added to the Ethernet infrastructure. The two new smart switches in the DGS-1100 Series also make an ideal upgrade from an unmanaged network. Easy network management capabilities deliver added value at a fraction of the cost of other switches on the market. Functionality such as intelligent traffic management to reduce network load or stop unauthorised access, as well as network optimisation, can be performed through a web management interface or the D-Link Network Assistant Utility.
The switches feature high-speed ports with fast Gigabit wired connectivity, plus full backwards compatibility for connections to older computers and equipment.
Each of the new D-Link switches offers advanced green technology, so each helps conserve energy, without impacting performance.
