Antaira Technologies announced it will be displaying an array of Ethernet PoE switches, new wireless equipment, and other advanced networking devices at the International Security Conference & Exposition. Also known as ISC West, the trade show will take place on March 28-31, 2023 at the Venetian Expo in Las Vegas where Antaira will be exhibiting at booth #33051.
When deploying managed PoE switches in an industrial network, upgrading firmware is an inevitable action to enhance switch performance. However, upgrading typically requires devices powered by the switch’s PoE to be shutdown for up to 15 minutes or more. As a result, data from these Powered Devices (PDs) that businesses rely upon to make informed decisions cannot be captured. PoE-powered PDs at risk include IP cameras, sensors, PLCs, VoIP phones, PoE lighting, and non-PoE switches.
Antaira Technologies recently partnered with a Utah-based airspace security and defense company to help implement a digital 3D protective shield to counter illegal entry by drones into a restricted airfield. Because connectivity was critical to the system’s responsiveness, Antaira LMX-1202G-SFP-T Gigabit-managed Ethernet switches were deployed inside multiple tall pillars surrounding the protected airspace. The switches link together dozens of IP video surveillance cameras, computers, and drone detection radar systems to the airport’s central control station.

Antaira Technologies announced APX-5200 industrial outdoor IP67 Wireless AP/client/bridge/repeater. APX-5200 wireless device is a managed unit with a built-in web console that allows users to configure the unit as a wireless access point, client, bridge, or repeater. The unit also features two gigabit Ethernet ports allowing for daisy chain applications. Due to the APX-5200’s industrial IP67 waterproof design, the unit is able to offer wireless connectivity in various market applications such as video surveillance systems or any outdoor environment where a wireless connection point is needed.
In reviewing today’s industrial network switches, one of the features that stand out are built-in SFP slots accompanying the standard RJ45 ports. SFP is short for Small Form-factor Pluggable, and it’s been an industry workhorse for nearly two decades. As a standardized network interface, SFP technology enables switches with SFP module slots and ports to connect to network components, either optically or electrically, at distances up to 160km (99.4 miles).
Article by Henry Martel, Field Application Engineer, Antaira Technologies What is a PoE budget? If you ask an accountant what a budget is, they’ll tell you it’s a spending plan based on how much money you earn versus what you spend over a certain period. In industrial networking circles, budgets exist, too. Except instead of […]
Electronic access control (EAC) systems are often installed at the doors or gates of buildings as part of an overall physical security program. EAC acts as a digital checkpoint, selectively restricting entry to a building or zone only to authorized individuals, therefore adding a critical layer of protection for the people and assets inside. The level of access a person has will vary depending on their security status, or depending on the location they are attempting to enter. EAC will also regulate the times and conditions within which access is allowed.
License plate recognition (LPR) makes it possible to detect, read, and store the image of a vehicle’s license plate. Such technology has numerous applications—it can facilitate traffic control and electronic toll collections, improve security in private sector industries such as hospitals or museums, and serve as a crime deterrent. To accomplish these many useful tasks, LPR relies heavily on the use of highly innovative and advanced cameras.
