The Milestone Husky M550 Advanced is the industry’s highest performing network video recorder for the 10GbE NVR server class segment.
Redundant power supply, up to 10GbE over CAT6 and no limits to the amount of enterprise storage – these are just some of the benefits made possible by the Husky M550A. The Husky M550A is the first server-class NVR in the industry to have a converged network adapter and leads the industry in recording rates for the 10GbE segment.
The highest performing NVR in its class
In addition to up to 64TB internal storage, the Husky M550A offers you the possibility of unlimited storage. Our newest, server-class NVR is the first in the industry to use the Intel X550 T2, a converged network adapter which provides hardware-based, high speed 10GbE iSCSI and FCoE (Fiber
Channel over Ethernet) interfaces, enabling customers to natively connect an unlimited amount of storage for both live video databases and archives. Customers can extend built-in storage using enterprise class storage solutions from DellEMC, HP, Netapp and other storage manufacturers.
The Husky M550 NVR has lower power consumption compared to other 10 GbE NVRs in the security industry. Lower power consumption saves money in the long run.
Low power consumption is due to:
• Highly efficient XProtect VMS preloaded on the unit, which means the M550 can run more cameras than other 10GbE NVRs without increasing power needs
• Support for hardware accelerated video motion detection moves motion detection from the central processor (CPU) to the graphical processor (GPU), freeing up processing power for more cameras
• The M550 uses an Intel i7 chip set, which requires less power than server-based processors found in most server-class NVRs
The Husky M550A is a versatile NVR which can be applied in a variety of system configurations. Traditionally, NVRs are deployed as a stand-alone all-in-one NVR installation, but the Husky M550A can be deployed in many other ways. It can replace
expensive IT servers for large scale multi-NVR environments which require the use of external storage archives. It can also be used in high-availability, complex solutions or globally dispersed operations with centralized management.
When building distributed surveillance installations, the M550A NVR is pre-installed with Milestone XProtect® Expert and Corporate.The industry's global leading VMS is also the most scalable software. Using Milestone’s Advanced VMS products you can operate the Husky M550A as a dedicated
primary or failover recording server, as a management server or an ONVIF gateway. It can be used as an edge recording system in remote locations which are connected to a centralized surveillance site using Milestone Federated Architecture™ or Milestone Interconnect™.
The M550A includes a number of capabilities that enable integrators to re-use the existing infrastructure when deploying the unit, thus saving valuable deployment time and reducing the overall cost of the installation.
The Intel Converged Network Adapter X550T2 enables:
You can also deploy faster as a result of the unit’s pre-installed software:
The Milestone Husky M550 Advanced supports all XProtect add-on products. With our add-on products, you can incorporate additional functions like access control and license plate recognition into your surveillance system. See the full range of XProtect add-ons.
