Pilz SecurityBridge Protects Controllers From Manipulation And Unauthorised Access

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.

A Primer: Network Segmentation For Video Surveillance

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.

Dahua Technology Enriches ePoE IP System

Dahua Technology has extended ePoE technology to more products, including full range of network cameras with wide selection of form factors, 16/32/64 channel network recorders and 4/8/16/24 port network switches. The newly enriched ePoE IP system enables Dahua customers and partners to reduce costs and embrace more business opportunities. The enriched Dahua ePoE IP system offers a better way to accomplish long-distance transmission between IP cameras and network switches or recorders and allows more flexible system design, improves reliability and saves construction and wiring cost.

Luxul Releases Its Dual-WAN Epic 5 Wired Gigabit Router

Luxul announced its Epic 5 router (ABR-5000) is now shipping with Domotz remote management software. More Than Just a Router, Epic 5 Delivers Ultra-Fast Speeds While Lowering Operational Costs for Integrators and Enhancing the Customer Experience. With the Epic 5’s onboard Domotz technology, integrators receive alerts when network issues arise —allowing them to take immediate action— and share device information with Luxul’s support team for swift and easy troubleshooting.

A Systematic Approach For Troubleshooting Degraded Video In Surveillance

When it comes to networking, real-time applications like video conferencing and streaming video can present monumental challenges to the typical network infrastructure. Underlying network issues can have a devastating effect on the performance of a video management system (VMS). But how do you know if it’s the VMS, the camera(s) or if it’s the network? Network related issues often mask themselves as IP-camera, VMS, or archiving problems. This article will look at a systematic approach for determining root cause issues related to degraded video quality.
