Security Monitoring and Surveillance Sectors benefit from Power over LAN

Sony Network Camera PowerDsine's Power over LAN™ is now being deployed in the security monitoring and surveillance arena. As IP surveillance is increasingly replacing traditional CCTV surveillance and monitoring devices in enterprise and industrial applications, Power over LAN technology offers reduced installation costs, uninterrupted power supply, plus the ability to install remote video cameras in locations where separate power lines are impractical.

Axis Network Camera PowerDsine is cooperating with several network camera and video server vendors, such as Axis Communications of Sweden, to offer a solution that enables power feeding over standard Ethernet cables for a range of IP surveillance solutions. These IP surveillance solutions combine network cameras and video servers into a converged IP solution that is more efficient to install and manage than traditional CCTV surveillance equipment.

The combination of PowerDsine's Power over LAN midspans and IP surveillance solutions allow enterprises to install a scalable solution, gradually adding more video products in a network.
