Switches made for video

Barox Kommunikation AG is promoting their range of Powerhaus switches designed to cope with the specific requirements of IP video. The switches support installers and end-users with many advanced features.

Barox has developed a Milestone plugin and switches integrated into Milestone’s VMS software. The  ‘Smart-barox’ DMS SNMP plug-in can greatly extend the operability of Milestone XProtect Video Management Software.

Allowing installers and operators to manage security networks and connected devices via the Milestone XProtect Smart Client, Smart-barox provides a live graphical overview of network topology, with invaluable network information. With Smart-Barox, VMS system diagnostic data showing the status of cameras and switches allows the fast pinpointing of network and device issues.

Ideal for general and high-security video surveillance applications, such as within airports, ports, large compounds, borders, prisons, malls and hotels, all Barox switches feature powerful built-in Cyber security and highly effective device management.

“Barox designs all of its products to address the specific demands of video surveillance networks,” says Rudolf Rohr, Barox Co-founder & Managing partner. “The Smart-barox Milestone DMS SNMP plug-in allows installers to reduce their equipment redundancy and keep network downtime to an absolute minimum, whilst saving costs by minimising network set-up time and avoidable maintenance journeys to site.”

At Intersec in Dubai, the staff from Barox demonstrated the many performance advantages built-in Barox’s specialist video switch range, including a GUI demonstration, showing connected device activity and network diagnostics via the powerful Barox Milestone plug-in.
