Barox and the power of partnership

by Geny Caloisi

Visitors could find barox at stand number 5/P90 at TSE 2024. In there, besides a glass of refreshing beer, visitors could see first-hand the ease and depth of compatibility that barox provides to a wide range of 3rd party VMS/PSIM control systems – via a range of integration plugins, including those for Milestone, Genetec, and Genesys by ISM.

Premiering at the show was barox’s RY-LGSO38-10 19″ 10Gb Ethernet switch, featuring 10 x 10Gb port capability with a substantial 200Gb backplane, DMS, robust security features, and dynamic routing. The first of a new range of 10Gb SFP switches, the Layer 2 and Layer 3 devices were explicitly developed to cater to modern video’s ever-increasing bandwidth demands over IP and video streaming, in conjunction with multicast – for large projects and the latest camera advancements. The new switch also boasted extensive security features that protected it and network traffic. The most complex network requirements could be met with its extensive management options.

At TSE, barox showcased its Ethernet switch products and advanced DMS network monitoring tool integrated with Genesys by ISM – the NPSA-approved command and control platform, thanks to its CAPSS certification. With this advanced barox integration capability, security surveillance solutions for Government, MOD, data centres, and other high-security sectors, to name but a few, had access to sophisticated network diagnostic tools across site-wide security systems and Building Management Solutions via Genesys by ISM integrated Command and Control platform.

Rudolf Rohr, barox Co-founder and Managing partner (pictured), said: “We are thrilled to be at the security event and that we can demonstrate barox’s technical ability to integrate its DMS network monitoring tool into third-party VMS platforms. This ability was unique in the CCTV market. It could dramatically reduce support engineering calls and costs by helping to quickly pinpoint and potentially resolve network, device, and cable issues without user interaction. This extensive integration capability set barox apart from other switch providers and was just one step on our journey to build our international brand further.”

Third-party integration is one of the benefits of barox switches provide. It also allows access to the full range of barox technology, including Active Camera Monitoring, PoE monitoring, Active PoE Power-up Management, and Non-Stop PoE. Network switches could serve as ‘health centres’ for other devices on the network thanks to their graphical interface and diagnostic tools. This integration enhanced cyber security by providing authentication certificates between the camera and the control platform. These features ensured ultimate peace of mind for users.

By integrating a barox Ethernet switch, enhanced diagnostic data enabled the fast diagnosis of network and device issues – enabling faults and outages to be diagnosed remotely. For example, if a network camera fails to respond, barox switches could send a re-boot command autonomously, saving significant device downtime and, in some cases, resolving the issue without engineer intervention. PoE on ports could be remotely controlled to reset or switch them off if necessary in case of a security breach.
