ACTi and ZyXEL Showcase PoE Switches for IP Camera Surveillance

May 05, 2010

ZyXEL UK, a leading broadband access solutions provider and ACTi Corporation, a leading provider of unified solutions for IP surveillance today announced they will be showcasing a range of ZyXEL PoE Switches to enable IP security systems at IFSEC. Aimed at the growing IP camera surveillance market, the range of Switches enable power to be supplied over CAT5 Ethernet cabling.

ZyXEL will also be using IFSEC to give visitors to ACTi’s Hall 4 stand E150 a ‘first look’ at its new eco-friendly GS2200-24P PoE Gigabit Switch, which will officially launch in June. The GS2200-24P PoE Gigabit Switch enables Gigabit speeds to the desktop with no degradation in network performance. Building on ZyXEL’s green credentials the GS2200-24P PoE Gigabit Switch also features a ‘Consumption Mode’ for bandwidth management. Most standard PoE switches classify all PoE devices to a standard wattage (15.4W), ZyXEL’s ‘Consumption Mode’ checks the actual power consumption rather than assuming it.

The ZyXEL GS-2200-24P will be showcased alongside the ZyXEL ES-2024PWR PoE Switch in Hall 4 stand E150. These products are part of the ZyXEL PoE Switch range that have recently been successfully certified to interoperate with ACTi’s IP camera solutions. The ZyXEL switches, which have been certified, are listed below:
 - ZyXEL GS1500-24P Gigabit Web Managed PoE Switch
 - ZyXEL ES2108PWR 8 port 10/100 Managed PoE Switch
 - ZyXEL ES2024PWR 24 port 10/100 Managed PoE Switch
 - ZyXEL GS2200-24P 24 port PoE Gigabit L2 Managed Switch –  LAUNCHING JUNE 2010
 - ZyXEL ES3124PWR 24 port 10/100 Managed PoE Switch
 - ZyXEL XGS4528F L3 Managed 10G Stackable Switch
"Following the announcement in March that ZyXEL has a global alliance with ACTi we are delighted to jointly present our IP camera surveillance solutions at the upcoming IFSEC show," said Alpha Chen, VP of ZyXEL Enterprise Solution Business Unit. "With many sectors looking to upgrade or install IP based camera surveillance solutions there is significant market opportunity which our switches are perfectly designed for."
"We are pleased to announce ZyXEL PoE switches have passed the accreditation test in our lab. Our worldwide system integrators will definitely enjoy the benefits from this proven solution." said Juber Chu, President of ACTi Corporation. "At IFSEC, ACTi is going to show the complete unified solution including the H.264 HD zoom camera, new standalone NVR, and project design tools, which will give both security installers and IT resellers excellent opportunities across different vertical markets."
The ZyXEL PoE switches allow power to be supplied over CAT5 Ethernet cables, and thus eliminate the need for costly electrical wiring. PoE enabled IP surveillance infrastructure is both cost efficient and easy to maintain for system administrators.
The video quality from ACTi IP network cameras far surpasses traditional analog cameras, allowing for crystal clear megapixel resolution images. Advanced H.264 / MPEG4 compression codecs save network bandwidth and make recording digitized.
