IP cameras connect to a LAN through a network cable. To create a LAN you need at least one switch to connect the cameras. To easily cover large areas you can use several switches connected to each other. Our POE switches are not ordinary computer switches, but are specifically designed for video surveillance networks. This is why they are ideal to make secure and reliable networks on which you can base your IP video surveillance system. Below is an example of a small IP network; please note the POE switch that allows you to connect two cameras.
Thanks to the Power Over Ethernet (PoE) technology, the IP cameras are powered just through the network cable and do not need a separate power supply. This is one of the main advantages of the IP CCTV compared to traditional analogue systems. The POE power supply is defined by an international standard (IEEE802), so with our POE switches you can power any compliant device. Almost all of our IP cameras, including many PTZ models, support POE. If your camera does not support POE power supply, you can add it yourself with an external POE splitter.
This range includes switches with 4.8 and 16 RJ45 POE ports. Each port can supply Power Over Ethernet to a camera. You can connect any POE camera (IEEE802.3af 15W) and even motorized POE + cameras (IEEE802.3at 30W) because each port supports both standards. Of course you can also connect devices that do not require power, such as a PC or NVR. In addition to the POE ports, all switches also have one or two UPLINK ports for the incoming LAN. Each port has two LEDs that indicate POE power and data.
This range includes 10/100 and 10/100/1000 switches. The 10/100 switches can handle a maximum data transmission speed of 100 Mbps. They are ideal for the connection of IP cameras that also have a 10/100 network interface and takes less than 10 Mbps each, depending on the video streaming setting. If the band to be handled exceeds 100 Mbps you have to use the 10/100/1000 switches, also called Gigabit switches. For instance, you should use a Gigabit switch when you need to connect other switches, each with a certain number of cameras. Some switches have 10/100 ports for the cameras and 10/100/1000 uplink ports to communicate faster with upstream devices.
The cameras connect to the switches with UTP cables. The most popular cables are UTP CAT5. Before buying your cable you must check that they are made with pure copper conductors because cheap CCA conductors won't work. If you want your system to work properly with standard POE you should not exceed 100 meters wiring. To help you in long distance wiring, these switches come with EXTENDED POE function which allows you to reach 250 meters. If you enable this function the maximum bandwidth per channel cannot exceed 10MB. This is usually enough for an IP camera.
According to the IEEE802 standard, POE switches supply 48VDC power. Our switches supply power only to devices that can support it, so there is no risk of damages due to incorrect power supply, that are unfortunately quite frequent in analog systems. Each port can deliver up to 30W and can power any camera, including PTZ cameras with IR that require high power. Be careful that all cameras power consumption should not exceed the maximum power that the switch can supply: 60, 96 or 150W depending on the models. An average camera with IR requires between 6 and 8W so most of the time you can use all the POE ports without worry.
Most switches in this range come with two patented functions called AI QOS and AI POE. These are two video stream supervision functions, specifically developed for video surveillance systems. These patented functions allow the switch to take emergency actions when abnormal events occur. AI QOS supervise the data transmission of each port and if a camera shows difficult transmission, it gives it priority. AI POE performs automatic camera reboot if the video signal on one port is missing or unstable.
In our range of POE switches for video surveillance you can also find some models in IP65 waterproof box. They are an excellent solution when you need to place the switch outdoors, for example when mounting cameras on poles. In these models the switch is protected in a cabinet with waterproof door and key lock . This soultion is much better than protecting a normal switch in a platic box because the wiring is more comfortable and the inspection easier. These POE switches for outdoor come complete with 220V power cable and cable glands for cable entry from the bottom.
These POE switches are ready to work. They do not require any configuration or addressing operation because they perform all the functions automatically. All switches come with 48VDC power supply and include a protection circuit capable of protecting against overvoltages up to 6KV.
Our switches are silent, fan-less and small in size. You can easily place them in junction boxes, cabinets, false ceilings etc. to bring your network anywhere.

Of course you can connect IP cameras to a generic Ethernet switch or directly to the router. However these specific switches for video surveillance offer you many advantages. In our switches all ports are able to supply power , while normal switches usually do not provide POE power supply or make it available only on a few ports. A generic switch is also not supporting POE + power supply which is essential to power motorized cameras. Our switches are also generally smaller than normal ethernet switches to be installed easily in cabinets and boxes. Finally, thanks to the patented AIQOS and AIPOE technologies, these CCTV switches can monitor the video stream and react in the event of abnormal situations.
