Using Power over Ethernet (PoE) for Performance and Security While Lowering the Cost of Ownership

Active Solutions LLC is a leading networking and communications systems integrator. The company specializes in large-scale deployments of video surveillance, access control, wireless, network, and building management technologies. Active Solutions relied on Microsemi to help deploy Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches that would provide the highest levels of performance and security while lowering the total cost of ownership for their client.

Customer Challenge
Install an outdoor IP surveillance system that included PTP/PTMP antennas and high-power panoramic PTZ cameras, often in locations without a local power source.

Microsemi’s PDS-104GO outdoor PoE switches were chosen and installed for seamless deployment of PTP/PTMP antennas and 180 cameras throughout the city.

Microsemi’s PDS-104GO outdoor PoE switch simplified installation of high-power outdoor IP cameras in hard-to-reach places without power. Maintenance was simplified with remote management, while SFP input helped lower camera installation costs over longer distances.
