System and IC Solutions for Robust IP Surveillance
In an increasingly connected world, physical threats continue to be a major preoccupation for governments, industry and consumers alike. The IP security camera segment according to IMS Research is expected to account for over 40% of the world security camera market and double in shipments by 2017.
With new video processing, motor control and voice processing capabilities, modern security systems include cameras that need to process a large amount of data and transform it into information that can help us identify threats and prevent them from turning into reality. Modern cameras have IP connectivity, either via wired Ethernet, IEEE 802.11 WiFi or HDBaseT, and many need to be deployed and harsh outdoor scenarios, where energy efficiency is of utmost importance.
Microsemi has supplied products for the analog surveillance market since the mid 1970’s, and to the IP surveillance market since its inception. Microsemi’s comprehensive complete product portfolio for IP cameras covers both their implementation and their deployment into virtually any field situation.
Microsemi's Power over Ethernet portfolio also includes PoE midspans, injectors and switches for both indoor and outdoor deployments, in addition to unique UL-rated outdoor PoE lighting surge protectors, safeguarding against equipment lightning damage.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) for IP SurveillanceWhen it comes to security, the need for a secured and reliable network goes without saying. An unsecured network results in an unsecured facility. Schools, universities, corporations, healthcare facilities and service providers are all looking for easy cost-effective ways to upgrade to high quality IP surveillance technology to increase the strength and performance of their security network. Further, network flexibility is required to optimize ROI on perpetual network upgrades.
Whether it's a new install or a camera upgrade, Microsemi's Power over Ethernet (PoE) midspans / injectors provide a simple and painless way to add reliable power and data to PoE-enabled IP cameras. Microsemi's PoE solutions are compatible with existing IEEE 802.3 standard Ethernet switches, enabling you to buy only the PoE you need, when you need it, delivering easy, lowest cost of ownership ways to build flexible networks.
Unique PowerView Pro web-based power management tool continues this ease of installation through the life time of ownership by providing features such as:
PoE midspans / injectors make upgrading to IP cameras easy and sensible when PoE is treated as infrastructure. Microsemi's PoE midspans / injectors offer an easy solution to provide secure PoE to IP cameras without replacing your existing switch, saving both time and physical expense associated with switch upgrades. Power is provided as a pass-through at Layer 1, leaving the network untouched by the migration to IP camera technology.
Timing Synchronization for IP Security NetworksImplementing an IP security network starts with accurate and precise network timing synchronization. Microsemi is the leader in NTP servers, which connect to various potential sources of synchronization, including GPS inputs, and distribute accurately timing using the NTP protocol.
