TRENDnet has recently introduced a new network switch that is specifically geared for the video surveillance market. The new TPE-3018L has 16 dedicated PoE+ ports for cameras and two separate uplink ports for network and NVR connectivity. Users are able to connect all 16 IP-cameras to the switch, while still providing two uplink ports for dedicated connections to your network, NVR, and / or NAS devices. This is a Layer-2, unmanaged, switch with a 36-Gigabit backplane. This backplane allows for each port to provide full bandwidth without dropping packets and reducing performance.
