GE Security's new IFS EtherNav D7608 managed Ethernet switcher features up to nine optical 10/100 FX fast Ethernet ports and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (IEE 802.1w) for quick data recovery. It uses an RS-232 interface to provide local PC-based network control and a web-based GUI for remote configuration control from anywhere on an Ethernet-based network. The switch supports SNMP Version 2C and is RFC1213-compliant for higher-level system management. The switch is mechanically and environmentally hardened for use in unconditioned environments and meets CALTRANS and NEMA test standards. A redundant power supply provides greater reliability.

DSC's T-Link TL300 universal IP communicator module is able to communicate with any control panel that employs the Contact ID format, including those from third-party manufacturers. The simple-to-install unit saves customers money by allowing them to take advantage of their existing IP networks to create fully supervised security solutions between protected premises and the central monitoring station. The communications system provides 128-bit AES encryption and can be programmed locally using the DSC LCD5500 keypad or T-Link Console software over an IP network connection made directly to the communicator's Ethernet port.
