Phybridge Partners with PathSolutions

Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) March 16, 2015 – Phybridge Inc., the leader in Power over Long Reach Ethernet switching technology, today announced they have formed a strategic partnership with PathSolutions to benefit organizations that need to migrate to VoIP or IP-based video security systems but are challenged by the infrastructure readiness requirements required to support new IP and PoE based technologies.

Phybridge is the global leader in 2-wire networking and produces the award-winning PoLRE and CLEER Ethernet switches that can supply both Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Ethernet signaling over single-pair telephone or COAX cabling at distances of over 650 meters (2000 feet). This unique solution permits traditional POTS and TDM phone systems, as well as COAX based camera systems, to be upgraded to IP-based solutions without costly building or infrastructure changes by utilizing the existing infrastructure that supports those traditional devices. “PathSolutions TotalView solution is the strongest software solution in the market for reducing the cost of network operations,” said John Croce, CEO of PhyBridge. “Partnering with PathSolutions brings two strong players together to offer a complete IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) solution for low-cost, high-performance VoIP and video networks.”

PathSolutions makes award-winning root-cause network troubleshooting solutions that pinpoint the exact location and cause of VoIP, video, and data problems for rapid resolution. The TotalView solution can be fully deployed in 12 minutes and provide a plain-English description of detected faults anywhere they occur in the network so immediate remediation can occur. By automatically monitoring 18 error counters on all ports on all switches, routers, gateways, and servers in the entire infrastructure, problems can be rapidly detected and remedied. “Phybridge’s unique infrastructure solution enables organizations to convert to IP using their existing single pair foundation, saving a tremendous amount of time and money as well as reducing disruption and downtime,” said Tim Titus, CTO of PathSolutions. “Together we offer a unique IaaS solution that redefines the cost model, on a far more economical basis, for solving network infrastructure problems.”

Both PathSolutions and Phybridge will deliver its combined solution to customers as an OpEx (Operational Expenditure) IaaS offering or CapEx (Capital Expenditure) purchase option.

The CLEER Switch from Phybridge named Best of Network Support Solutions at SIA’s 2015 New Product Showcase at ISC West

Oakville, Ontario (PRWEB) April 29, 2015 – The CLEER Switch from Phybridge won the Best of Network Support Solutions Award at the Security Industry Association’s 2015 New Product Showcase (NPS) awards ceremony at ISC West earlier this month.

Phybridge is the leader in PoLRE (Power over Long Reach Ethernet) switch technology, and was the first company to introduce switch technology that delivers Ethernet and PoE over a single pair of wire with four times the reach of traditional switches.

The Phybridge CLEER (Coax Leveraged Ethernet Extended Reach) switch is the new standard in Ethernet over Coax transmission products for enterprise customers wanting to migrate to IP. The award-winning Phybridge CLEER switch is the world’s first enterprise grade 24-port Ethernet over Coax switch on the market, delivering fast Ethernet (100mbs symmetrical) and PoE+ over coax with over 2,000 ft (609 m) reach. CLEER is designed to eliminate infrastructure barriers and makes IP camera migration cost effective and simple.

Among those accepting the award on behalf of Phybridge was Oliver Emmanuel, President and Founder of the company. “We’re honoured to be a recipient of this prestigious award,” said Emmanuel. “This could not have come at a more opportune time as we’re introducing our highly successful Power over Long Reach Ethernet (PoLRE) technology to the security industry.”

“Each year, the companies competing in SIA’s New Product Showcase at ISC West present the leading-edge security solutions that are shaping the industry,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “These new technologies and solutions are the drivers that are moving the security industry forward, and I congratulate Phybridge on their win at this year’s NPS.”

Phybridge Wins Benchmark Award for Most Innovative Infrastructure Solution

Posted on Aug 25, 2015

The future in the security systems sector is unquestionably network-based. This does present a need for many sites to change with regards to the type of infrastructure deployed in their security solutions. In new applications this may not be a significant issue for end users, but it can be a more relevant challenge for installers and integrators where legacy systems exist and the end user wants to avoid the cost of replacing existing cabling. To many, a ‘rip and replace’ scenario simply represents wasted investment, and if a customer starts out with negative feelings towards an upgrade, it is unlikely to go smoothly.

The challenge for many installers and integrators is addressing infrastructure requirements to support the new IP edge devices. The traditional rip-and replace requirements often increase overall cost barriers to establish a network platform, and can be significant issue for many end users contemplating a migration to an IP-based surveillance platform.

An approach gaining popularity is to leverage existing infrastructure, repurposing it to deliver a networked solution. The Phybridge CLEER Switch is designed to eliminate most network infrastructure implementation barriers. It does this by making IP camera migration both cost effective and simple.

The CLEER Switch is an enterprise-grade 24 port Ethernet over Coax switch, delivering fast Ethernet (100Mbps symmetrical) and PoE+ over coax. It boasts a reach in excess of 600 metres.

CLEER transforms the existing coax infrastructure into a robust IP platform ideal for HD and megapixel cameras and other networked devices.

CLEER’s features include a throughput of 100Mbps per port (symmetrical, full duplex) over 600 metre distances. The manufacturer points out that while some switch specifications might claim throughputs of up to 200Mbps, these often will combine the up and down speeds, which can be misleading for installers and integrators looking at surveillance applications.

The CLEER Switch offers Layer 2 management features (SNMP, LLDP, VLAN) and remote switch management. Power can be controlled by port, with options to recycle or turn power on or off.

Port locking is supported and detailed port statistics enable easy troubleshooting and maintenance. Hot swappable power supplies and power sharing deliver system redundancy and ensure continuity of service in security applications.

Each switch includes two 1GbE Copper/Fibre uplink ports and dedicated management and console ports.

The switch delivers required power to IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at compliant devices across Ethernet links, and an intuitive web GUI simplifies switch management, making the management process far more intuitive.
