Cisco unveils safety, security and communication offerings

Build scalable network-based security systems

By CBR Staff Writer

Cisco, a provider of networking offerings, has unveiled a series of safety and security offerings powered by a comprehensive Medianet architecture.

The new offerings are expected to enable Cisco customers and large security integrators to build scalable network-based security systems.

The company is also extending its Medianet Services Interface software to certified video surveillance partners, and is also introducing new communications interoperability offerings and enhancements as part of Cisco’s Smart+Connected Communities initiative.

Cisco has introduced a new high density Physical Security Storage Series platform with the ability to manage video recording of up to 120 terabytes of storage, and 60 disks in only 4RU of rack space, and up to 240 terabytes, and 120 disks in only 8U of rack space.

The company has also launched IP Interoperability and Communications System (IPICS) 4.5, which is a complete IP-based dispatch and incidence-response offering that enables rapid, reliable communication using desktop or mobile device to provide public safety personnel with continuous, real-time communication as well as streaming video.

Cisco has extended its Medianet support to Cisco and other third party cameras.

Cisco claims the Medianet architecture delivers a smarter network, smarter endpoints, cloud services and shared media services. It enables IP cameras to be auto-configured upon network connection, with the specific network bandwidth and security.

Cisco also unveiled new 4 and 8 port standalone encoders that complement its existing 16-port chassis-based analog to IP video encoders to further support customers in migrating existing deployments to the IP network.

Cisco Physical Security Business Unit vice president and general manager Bill Stuntz said today’s announcements represent key steps they are taking as they evolve their safety and security strategy to a more solutions-oriented, services-led approach.
