Samsung launches Ethernet switches optimized for IP video surveillance

Samsung Techwin America has introduced a pair of Ethernet switches developed especially for network video surveillance applications.

Samsung Techwin America (Ridgefield Park, NJ) has introduced a pair of Ethernet switches developed especially for network video surveillance applications.

Developed in-house to maintain cost-competitiveness, the company says its new iES4028FP L2 and the iBG2016 L3 Ethernet switches provide PoE and/or non-PoE switching ports in a single RU chassis with a choice of 10/100/1000 uplink speeds as well as full WAN connectivity. The high performance 10/100 Layer 2 and Layer 3 Ethernet switches, with Gigabit options, offer 24 ports that can be managed from anywhere on the network through a standard web browser.

Both port-based and 802.1Q (tagged-based) VLAN configurations as well as layer 3 IP based VLAN’s are supported with additional capabilities for monitoring traffic and managing multicast groups as well as QoS for IP telephony. PoE is supported in all access ports. Other supported protocols include L2-L4 ACL, Radius, TACACS+, SSH, SSL, 8021x based port security and DHCP snooping.

The company says the switches' advanced QoS (quality of service) features ensure minimal latency and maximum bandwidth utilization, while on-board intelligence allows up to 36 switches to be managed in a logical group using a single IP address.

“Samsung’s new Ethernet switches offer powerful functionality and ensured reliability for mission critical video surveillance systems at a competitive price,” comments Dr. Edward Wassall, CTO IP Product Development / Application Engineering, North America for Samsung Techwin America. “The Ethernet switches easily integrate with existing or new systems, and are a further reflection of Samsung’s commitment to developing robust, standards-based intelligent solutions for the network video surveillance applications.”

With its iPOLiS cameras and devices already known in network video surveillance systems industry, Samsung says the addition of the ieS4028 and the iBG2016 switches positions the company and its reseller partners to better serve the security industry’s migration to a networked platform.
