In a recent blog post by Richard Jonker NETGEAR VP of SMB Product Line Management it was announced that NETGEAR will be joining the OSSA or Open Security & Safety Alliance.With joining OSSA, NETGEAR will work together with leading camera and video management vendors to create innovations in the area of video surveillance. Collaboration is mostly aimed at increasing performance, efficiency and security of video surveillance networks.
“We at NETGEAR believe that there will be an exponential growth of surveillance IoT devices running through IP networks, both wired and wireless, in the next decade. An end-to-end security architecture will be the bedrock of the surveillance network,” said Richard Jonker, vice president of product management for SMB products at NETGEAR. “We are looking forward to working with like-minded companies to develop a platform that will power the surveillance industry for years to come.”
As a proven leader in the networking industry for over 20 years, NETGEAR intends to contribute key technologies and know-hows through the participation inOSSA, to help establish an open and common standard for IoT data security and safety, a shared goal of its members.
One of the key elements of any video surveillance network is the combination of Ethernet switching and the supply of camera power through Power over Ethernet (PoE). Additionaly remote management and storage are also discussed.
