New barox network management plug-in for Genetec

by Geny Caloisi

barox has released a new Genetec DMS plug-in that provides flexibility, extended user control, and significantly reduced security network support costs.  The plug-in is fully integrated with the Genetec Security Center Omnicast VMS interface

An Genetec Omnicast is an IP-based VMS that enables quick response and informed decision-making. Its flexible architecture reduces storage and network loads by combining video with access control, intrusion detection, and more. 

With easy integration for deep barox Ethernet switch/network control, the new Genetec DMS plug-in reinforces barox’s ethos of offering advanced network solutions that are tailored to the needs of the modern video security market.

Barox’s Ethernet switch integration via their DMS network monitoring tool greatly enhances Genetec Omnicast VMS user control functionality. Genetec installers and customers can reduce support calls, engineering site visits and costs by using barox DMS diagnostics.

The barox Genetec plug-in allows users to directly manage all IP devices on their security network, including an Operator’s facility to ‘remote reboot’ any non-responsive IP device. Using the barox plug-in, users can access the full range of barox Ethernet switch benefits, including Active Camera Monitoring, PoE monitoring, Active PoE Power-up Management and Non-Stop PoE.

Along with barox plug-in integration dramatically reducing engineering support costs, barox network switches also act as ‘health centres’ for other devices on the network, such as cameras and access control panels.  With access to advanced barox switch functionality, installers and operators can better manage their security network and connected devices. 

Additional Barox switches network management features include cyber security features such as authentication certificate logins, 100Mbits – 1000Mbits jumbo frames, to prevent camera frames from being lost, and periodic auto camera pings to monitor and report camera status. Ports are automatically shut down when a breach is detected, to neutralise any threat and keep the network safe.

“We are delighted to partner with Genetec and launch our powerful barox switches network management Genetec plug-in.” says Rudolf Rohr, barox Co-founder & Managing partner. “This proactive ‘game changing’ monitoring tool, provides real value and cost-saving benefits to integrators and end users alike, not to mention reducing health and safety risks by alleviating the need for fault diagnostic visits to site. 

“This advanced integration capability sets barox apart from other switch manufacturers, firmly establishing barox as an international brand. We are proud to deliver the benefits of simple device integration, advanced functionality, product quality and performance, all backed by local customer support. This announcement with Genetec is a major step forward on our product roadmap, and we have many other new developments in the pipeline.  It’s very much a case of ‘watch this space’ industry for barox’s next big move.”
