TRENDnet Introduces ONVIF-Conformant Smart Surveillance Switches

TRENDnet says these are the world’s first and only ONVIF-conformant switches tested and available. They also feature integrated camera management functions and PoE self-healing support.

TORRANCE, Calif. — TRENDnet announces that its Gigabit PoE+ smart surveillance switch series is currently shipping and available for purchase. These smart surveillance switches are the first network switches to be designated as ONVIF-conformant, supporting ONVIF Profile Q, according to the company.

TRENDnet’s Gigabit PoE+ smart surveillance switches are integrated with camera management functions which are accessible within the surveillance switch’s user interface.

The series launches with two models, the 18-Port Gigabit PoE+ smart surveillance switch (TPE-3018LS) and the 12-Port Gigabit PoE+ smart surveillance switch (TPE-3012LS).

Camera management functions available through the switch’s GUI include modifying camera administrator access, performing camera firmware upgrades, e-map support and changing IP addresses. The ONVIF-conformant designation ensures users that Profile Q requirements have been met, which guarantees a level of interoperability with other ONVIF devices, such as NVRs, IP cameras and software.

The PoE self-healing support on these smart surveillance switches include both PoE device-recovery, and switch power scheduling. If the smart surveillance switch fails to respond, or if the network connection to a connected device is interrupted, TRENDnet’s switch will auto-reboot or power cycle the affected PoE port and/or the entire switch.

The PoE self-healing support featured on these smart surveillance switches helps to reduce overall network downtime and the amount of onsite support required, which can be crucial especially during critical network operations, according to the company.

The switches feature both PoE+ and standard RJ-45 ports, as well as SFP slots for long-distance fiber connectivity. The smart surveillance switch series also feature long-range PoE support that can reach up to 656 ft. (200m), double the current PoE standard distance.

The front-facing LED display shows PoE power usage statistics. Managed switch features include IPv6, QoS, IGMP snooping, port bandwidth controls, and spanning tree support.
