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.
TRENDnet announces the launch of its new 18-Port Gigabit NVR PoE+ Switch with LED Display, model TPE-3018L. This switch also introduces the new NVR Series Switches product family for the popular networking and surveillance brand. TRENDnet’s 18-Port Gigabit NVR switch is designed for use with a 16-channel standard NVR, such as TRENDnet’s 16-Channel HD NVR, model TV-NVR2216. The new unmanaged 18-port switch enables users to connect all 16 IP-camera to the switch, while still providing two additional shared uplink ports for dedicated connections to your NVR or network.
