Network Switches

The network that delivers video data from camera to server is critical to be architected and deployed properly for a video surveillance integration to be successful. With features including large PoE budgets, a wide variety of port densities and form factors, high availability, always-on video provided by shortest path bridging, and other cutting-edge features, BCD’s networking solutions can provide networks ranging from a simple star network to highly available and redundant network architecture.



Network security architecture is critical to protecting networks from cybersecurity threats, and part of the architecture is network switches. BCD carries various networking switches to ensure industries can access solutions that suit their needs. With the right switches, networks offer optimal security, which only authorized users can access. Consider incorporating these options into your network architecture:
