Extreme Networks, an Ethernet technology provider, introduced its Ethernet-based physical security network solution which is designed to simplify operations associated with networked physical security systems, including Internet protocol (IP) surveillance cameras, integrated alarms and door locks.
The company’s physical security network, delivered in conjunction with its technology partners, supports surveillance and perimeter security, intelligent buildings, traffic cameras, equipment alarms and tracking. Software intelligence embedded in the ExtremeXOS operating system (OS) automates tasks, including camera and device discovery, configuration, authentication, power management via Power over Ethernet (PoE/PoE+) and network policy assignment, Extreme Networks says.
“As the industry moves toward more sophisticated and integrated physical security systems, there is growing customer demand for Ethernet-based networking solutions that provide improved port access security, capacity and Power over Ethernet to centralize control and management across multiple security devices,” said Bill Murphy, Extreme Networks’ director of marketing.
The product aims to reduce installation and maintenance time, according to the company. Switches can be configured at a granular level to support specific devices, which can then be authenticated and assigned to a dedicated security network, reducing interference from other devices and services, the firm says.
The security solution includes its Summit X440, Summit X460, and Summit X670 switches, all powered by the ExtremeXOS modular OS. Summit switches support PoE+ with a range of power supply options that allow more devices per switch, the company says.
