TRENDnet introduces ONVIF conformant Smart Surveillance switches

1 October 2020 IT infrastructure

TRENDnet has announced that its Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance network switches are designated as ONVIF Conformant, supporting ONVIF Profile Q. TRENDnet’s Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance switches are integrated with camera management functions which are easily accessible within the surveillance switch’s user interface.

The Gigabit PoE+ series launched with two models, the 18-port Gigabit PoE+ Smart Surveillance switch (TPE-3018LS) and the 12-port switch (TPE-3012LS). Camera management functions available through the switch’s GUI include modifying camera administrator access, performing camera firmware upgrades, e-map support and changing IP addresses. The ONVIF Conformant designation ensures users that Profile Q requirements have been met, which guarantees a level of interoperability with other ONVIF devices, such as NVRs, IP cameras, and software.

The PoE self-healing support on these switches includes both PoE device recovery and switch power scheduling. If the switch fails to respond, or if the network connection to a connected device is interrupted, TRENDnet’s switches will auto-reboot or power cycle the affected PoE port and/or the entire switch. The PoE self-healing support featured on these switches helps to reduce overall network downtime and the amount of onsite support required, which can be crucial especially during critical network operations.

The Smart Surveillance switches are the first official ONVIF Conformant network switches currently available. They feature both PoE+ and standard RJ-45 ports, as well as SFP slots for long-distance fibre connectivity. The series also features long-range PoE support that can reach up to 200 m, double the current PoE standard distance. The front-facing LED display shows useful PoE power usage statistics. Managed switch features include IPv6, QoS, IGMP snooping, port bandwidth controls and spanning tree support.
