Siklu is introducing an extended frequency range model of its industry-leading EH-600 PtP 60GH series: the EH-614TX. This year both OFCOM in the UK and the FCC in the US have extended the license-exempt V-band spectrum up to 71GHz, for a total of 14GHz. Siklu’s EtherHaul™ 614TX is designed to take advantage of this expansion and operate over the entire 14GHz band with a single SKU. Operating in the upper regions of the 60GHz band allows longer distances, as the oxygen absorption effect centered at 62GHz has minimal impact.
A quick overview of any Video Management System (VMS) platform will reveal a myriad of options to provide sustained operational status. Primary and secondary databases, redundant and co-located recording platforms, and critical service fail-over. The evolution of VMS platforms lend themselves to sustaining critical operations and in some cases delivering five-nines of availability for live and archived video.
C Spire, a leading 5G technology service provider, announced a partnership today with Siklu, a market leader in mmWave wireless solutions, to use multi-gigabit wireless technology to backhaul high speed internet service to thousands of homes and businesses in Mississippi. C Spire is using Siklu solutions to extend existing fiber optic assets for last mile connections in neighborhoods and business districts in over 150 Mississippi towns and communities as part of a push to rapidly bring the next-generation services to more consumers and businesses at affordable prices.
Agile Interoperable Solutions will unveil its ultra-mobile CORE Patrol unit taking integrative communications to a new level of sophistication and independence. Agile Interoperable Solutions (AIS) to achieve seamless connectivity in the most challenging environments, will be exhibiting and demonstrating a wide variety of its products at the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO) Show August 5-8 in Las Vegas. The Show will also mark the introduction of company’s newest technology, CORE Patrol, a tactical communications hub purpose built within a backpack to enable communications in terrain or conditions where a vehicle would not be feasible or desirable.
In the old days, outdoor fixed wireless was primarily used for one simple yet powerful application – point to point (PTP) cell site backhaul. As cellular technology improved and capacities increased, so did the point to point gear you used to connect the towers. Yet the deployment of these links remained fairly vanilla connecting point A (the tower) to point B (the wireline PoP). The backhaul link was cited on the same tower as the RAN, making site acquisition and power supply simple. These links were typically in the licensed microwave bands from 7GHz up to 38GHz and were deployed as one offs.
VIVOTEK’s Shepherd, embedded with device management functions, can easily set up multiple cameras at once. The software automatically brings up a list of all VIVOTEK devices that are connected on the network and user can manually group the cameras to apply pre-configured settings. The Shepherd supports various powerful functions, including group setting management, IP address assignment, remote reboot/restore, import/export camera settings, firmware and VADP package upgrade, exporting the server status report to track the issue.
TRENDnet’s AC3000 Tri-Band Wireless Gigabit Dual-WAN VPN SMB Router, model TEW-829DRU, features three concurrent WiFi bands to maximize device networking speeds: two separate high performance 802.11ac networks (5GHz1: 1733Mbps / 5GHz2: 867Mbps), and a 400Mbps Wireless N network. It features dual-WAN ports for load balancing or fail-over modes, and encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) access for remote users. Dual-WAN ports smooth network loading, minimize network downtime, and allow employees to access your network from the Internet–all with a single router.
Luxul announced that its 26-port/24 PoE+ AMS-2624P Gigabit managed switch was honored with an SCN InfoComm Installation Product Award in the “Most Innovative Signal Management Product” category at InfoComm 2018 in Las Vegas.
If people, machinery and industrial processes are intelligently linked, these networks are also more susceptible to attack. The Pilz SecurityBridge protects the configurable, safe small controllers PNOZmulti and the automation system PSS 4000 from network-based attacks and unauthorised access. Plant and machinery are thus not only safe, but also secure, which ensures the safety of employees and increases the availability of the machinery. Safety needs to do both – not only ensure protection for humans and machinery, but also offer the necessary degree of flexibility and availability in the smart factory.
The process of designing a surveillance system can be a complicated task, full of traps and pitfalls that can leave an integrator frustrated with both performance and overall functionality of the surveillance system. While engineers typically design the VMS platform in a simplified network infrastructure, real-life deployments are anything but simple. Based on the scale, expected growth, and level of availability systems integrators are facing decisions surrounding network segmentation. Creating Virtual Local Area Networks, or VLANs is not a new concept to the industry. For years integrators have been trying to decide when to segment surveillance networks, thus walking a fine line between increased complexity and improved system performance. In this article, we will dispel the myths and discuss a systematic approach to network segmentation.
