ZyXEL Joins the Panasonic Solution Developer Network

ZyXEL Communications has become a technology partner in the Panasonic Solution Developer Network (PSDN) program. The alliance joins two manufacturers of advanced networking products and technologies - Panasonic's i-Pro Series of intelligent and professional IP video surveillance products, and the ZyXEL Enterprise switch portfolio which ensures both quality of service of the CCTV video streams at the core of the network and provides a full PoE enabled IP surveillance infrastructure.

The use of professional-grade network technology is essential for mission-critical security applications, where system down-time is not acceptable. However, up until now, CCTV planners have had little choice but to use prohibitively expensive enterprise solutions from specialist companies, or to compromise and risk down-time with equipment designed for general purpose broadband applications. Now, for the first time a leading global provider is tailoring a top-end solution to the needs of CCTV system designers.

Panasonic's i-Pro Series facilitates the transition to a networked environment with easy integration into new and existing analogue and digital installations. The i-Pro Series includes PTZ, vandal-proof, fixed, and mini- dome cameras, network video recorders, video servers and more.

ZyXEL's networking portfolio compliments the Panasonic IP Surveillance solution with best optimum quality and performance: the Layer 3 Core Switch as the heart of the network to control and handle the CCTV camera streams, Power over Ethernet (PoE) Switches for the connection to the camera, and wireless LAN for smaller deployments with optional firewall security for campus connectivity and secure remote monitoring.
