ComNet (Danbury, CT) has introduced its NetWave NW8 wireless Ethernet link, designed to support redundant ring and “drop-and-insert” functionality on a wireless network. The company positions the product as a solution for providing large-scale perimeter protection and IP surveillance for facilities such as airports, border patrol and other large facilities where a wired infrastructure is cost-prohibitive.

The NW8 models feature dual gigabit Ethernet ports that support up to two IP connections and allow for multiple IP cameras to be aggregated onto the wireless network. The NW8 also supports optional IEEE802.3at PSE (Power Sourcing Equipment) for powering PoE connected devices, such as IP PoE cameras and simplifying installation.
