barox high performance ‘Switches made for Video’


barox Kommunikation AG, the global manufacturer of professional standard managed and unmanaged switches, PoE media converters and IP extenders, has announced a new partnership with leading Middle East video surveillance, access control and structured cabling distributor, Amstergi.

Established in 2004 and headquartered in Dubai, Amstergi is an end-to-end supply chain distributor offering security integrators in the UAE and Qatar, a single source of supply, stocking a wide range of the most prominent technology brands. The distributor’s value-added services include distribution, product management, logistics, pre & post-sales support and manufacturer supported product training.

Integrated IP solutions

For Middle East system integrators and specifiers, barox’s capability to integrate their advanced Device Management System (DMS) network monitoring tool is unique in the video surveillance market and greatly extends leading VMS/PSIM’s control functionality, via the unique range of barox integration plug-ins. Enabling easy integration to barox Ethernet switches, the company’s  wide range of plug-ins includes integration to Milestone, Genetec and Geutebrück video management control solutions.

Allowing system integrators to quickly identify network/device issues, barox integration delivers enhanced diagnostic data, showing the status of cameras and switches via the DMS. Featuring numerous helpful network monitoring functions, faults and outages can be diagnosed remotely, and other barox tools, including PoE monitoring, cable diagnostics and remote switch traffic monitoring, enable per port live data traffic to be shown on a graphical chart, allowing the whole video network and all connected cameras to be analysed. Saving time and money on the requirement for on-site engineering visits, if a network camera fails to respond, barox switches can be used to select a device and send a re-boot command.
