barox Kommunikation AG

barox Kommunikation AG, the manufacturer of IT switches designed specifically for the video surveillance market, has released ‘smart-barox’, a DMS SNMP plug-in that greatly extends Milestone XProtect® Video Management Software usability

barox is one of the leading IT switch manufactueres for the video surveillance market. After the video market migrated to IP the biggest camera manufacturers decided to leave the IEEE regulations and doing their own thing. Like using PoE power bigger than 30W or Jumbo Frames at 100Mbits. barox follows that camera - exit from IEEE and provides switches that still support the cameras even outside the standards. As a company we design products to address the specialist requirements that are essential to a surveillance network. It has been designed to cope with the special requirements of IP video; to reduce replacement costs and to cut ongoing expenses by minimising setup time and journeys to site. Our switches include special functions e.g. cameras are periodically pinged to check status. If they fail to respond, PoE is taken away to re-boot the switch and the fault is logged. Fault logging allows you to understand and pinpoint network and device issues much faster.
