May 19, 2009--Leviton's UTP Security Solutions suite features more than 20 new connectivity components designed to enable enterprises to connect analog security cameras and recording equipment over UTP cabling. This infrastructure will permit IT staff to maintain the security network, streamlining facility management and upgrades.

The Security Solutions suite includes active and passive video transceiver baluns as well as video, power, and data (VPD) transceivers and signal integrators. Long distance cable runs of 2,000 to 4,000 feet are possible with the active receiver products. VPD products transmit all three signals (video, power, data) on a single 4-pair UTP cable.

"Converged cabling reduces network construction and maintenance costs, eases cable congestion, and improves power quality for security equipment," says Dan Underbrink, RCDD, senior applications engineer with Leviton's Network Solutions business unit. "But most importantly, standards-based cabling is scalable. It supports traffic growth as well as migration to IP-based systems."
