Many businesses are updating their analog video surveillance systems to IP cameras. IP cameras provide a better resolution with higher pixel density in comparison to analog cameras which have been using the same technology invented since the 1950’s to supply their video source. IP cameras make it simple for expanding businesses to add additional cameras with Power over Ethernet as a power source. Analog cameras on the other hand, force customers to buy an additional DVR if they seek to expand their surveillance system.

IP cameras have the added advantage of using an existing network so that administrators can remotely monitor an area. In addition, IP cameras can function with the simple connection of an Ethernet cable which can simultaneously deliver both data and power whereas Analog cameras require a nearby power source and a coaxial cable to function.

Planet’s newest product, the GS-4210-24P2S makes it easy for your business to upgrade from an outdated analog systems to an IP system. The managed switch makes it possible for administrators to install a secure surveillance system at a lower total cost.

Perfectly-Integrated Solution for PoE IP Surveillance

The GS-4210-24P2S provides 24 10/100/1000Mbps 802.3at PoE+ ports which can supply PoE power to 24 IEEE 802.3af / IEEE 802.3at PoE IP cameras.  The device is also able to connect with one 16-channel NVR or two 8-channel NVR systems, and uplink to the backbone switch and the monitoring center.  The recorded video files from the PoE IP cameras can be saved in the NVR system to enable administrators to control and monitor the surveillance images both in the local LAN and the remote sites.


Versatile PoE+ Switch for Small and Medium Businesses.

Administrators can use the managed switch to create a hybrid network by installing other devices such as Wireless Access points and non-PoE devices.
