EtherWAN Systems Helped with PoE connectivity in a Hospital Surveillance Project

Taipei, Taiwan — April 07, 2014 —
EtherWAN Systems, Inc., a leading Ethernet connectivity solution provider, works with a system integrator to implement Ethernet switches in an IP surveillance project for a regional medical center in Taiwan.

To ensure stable video surveillance with simultaneous recording, monitoring, and archiving, the hospital decides to replace the previous analog CCTV system with a digital one. EtherWAN's EX17082, EX17162 and EX17242 PoE switches provide 8, 16 and 24 PoE/PSE ports for powering up the newly-installed IP cameras over CAT.6 cables; each switch also features 2 Gigabit uplink ports for building-to-building communications thru fiber optic cables.

Over 460 brand-name PoE cameras and NVRs are connected with 50 units of EtherWAN PoE switches on site, which are fully compatible with the camera vendor's VMS software, running altogether seamlessly. These web-smart switches allow users to turn PoE function on/off remotely via a web browser, saving hassles to the partnered system integrator when it comes to camera setups. On the other hand, EtherWAN's EX25611 managed Gigabit Ethernet switch receives recording images from the NVRs; equipped with four 1G/10G SFP+ uplink ports, it connect to a Layer 3 core switch in the server room. By utilizing such a surveillance network, it enhances the total safety of the hospital's patients, staff and assets. Furthermore, the high-resolution video records come in handy for medical dispute resolutions.

EtherWAN produces high-quality Ethernet transmission products for IP security projects. "We thrive to give our customers excellent benefit-cost ratio with quick response to inquiries, network design suggestions, and solid after service, including user training and technical support" explains Peter Yeh, Regional Sales Manager at EtherWAN.
