The IGS-5225-8T2S2X and IGS-5225-8P2S2X series is the first advanced Din-rail Ethernet Switch offering 20G fiber uplink capability developed to meet the current trends of having IoT-based smart cities. It is integrated with 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 2 Gigabit fiber ports and 2 10Gbps fiber ports to meet the demand of high bandwidth of data transmission for 802.11ac wireless APs or 5 mega-pixel IP cameras. Being able to operate under wide temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C, the IGS-5225-8T2S2X and IGS-5225-8P2S2X series can be placed in almost any difficult environment. Furthermore, the IGS-5225-8P2S2X provides 8 PoE ports with a maximum of 36-watt power per port and unique PoE functions for the efficient management of powered devices.

Industrial L2+ 24-Port Gigabit 802.3at PoE + 4-Port Shared Gigabit Fiber Managed Rack-mount Ethernet Switch (IGS-5225-24P4S)
With global manufacturing trend toward IIoT and smart factories, PLANET has developed the IGS-5225-24P4S, equipped with 24 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ45 ports featuring 36-watt 802.3at PoE+ and 4-port shared 100/1000X SFP for data and video uplink in an IP30 metal housing. Its compliance with Modbus TCP protocol makes data transactions between devices easier and yet more efficient. It provides IPv4/IPv6 Layer 3 static routing capability, advanced ITU-G.8032 E.R.P.S. Ring technology and PLANET intelligent PoE functions to improve the rapid self-recovery capability and uptime for outdoor IP surveillance and wireless network applications in harsh environment such as factories, power plants, coal-fired power plant, etc.

L2+ Centralized Wireless APs Management Solution with 802.3at PoE Intelligent Functions
To help simplify the integration of devices into the existing wired and wireless network environments such as offices, hotels, villas, and more, and decrease the burden of wireless AP management, PLANET L2+ Centralized Wireless APs Management Solution with 802.3at PoE Intelligent Functions enables IT managers to effectively manage up to 64 controlled wireless APs in different locations. The Wireless AP Controller in this solution offers all-in-one smart AP control, intelligent PoE capability, L2/L4 Gigabit and 10Gbps LAN switching, and IPv6/IPv4 Layer 3 static routing. With the combination of PLANET Wireless AP Controller, centralized AP management software and wireless APs, the IT managers can automatically discover, configure, monitor and firmware-upgrade all the managed APs through one single browser-based web user interface. Thus, with just one click of the application for the locally maintained profile, the wireless parameters can be configured to a group of APs simultaneously to minimize deployment time, effort and cost.

H.265 IP Surveillance Total Solution
Designed to enhance the management of heavey-duty surveillance network including traffics, vehicles and security services, PLANET has launced H.265 IP Surveillance Total Solution to deliver high-quality surveillance video using less bandwidth and offers over 30% more of recording capacity than systems employing H.264 compression. In this solution, the 36-ch NVR, NVR-3685, can connect up to 36 IP cameras and supports 8 hard disks providing up to 48TB especially for data center environment. It features dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, eMap, dual local display, and PLANET DDNS. Moreover, it is fully compatible with mobile app and Internet Explorer on Windows operating system for multi-platform remote access. The H.265 IP camera series, on the other hand, provides sharp images under all lighting conditions with the built-in Sony super low lux CMOS image sensor. Users can remotely adjust the focus and zoom from the Web interface with the motorized focus/zoom features. Also equipped with a P-Iris, the H.265 IP camera series allows for precise control of exposure, producing images with better clarity and contrast.
