barox Kommunikation has established a collaboration with Amstergi, a distributor in the Middle East specialising in video surveillance, access control and structured cabling solutions.

This collaboration, according to barox, underscores its commitment to delivering high-quality solutions and support services to the dynamic Middle East market.

barox and Amstergi: Integrated

barox asserts that it offers a strategic advantage to Middle East system integrators and specifiers through its advanced Device Management System (DMS) network monitoring tool in the video surveillance market.

This tool enhances the control functionality of leading VMS/PSIMs via barox’s integration plug-ins, seamlessly integrating with its Ethernet switches.

These plug-ins are compatible with major video management control solutions like Milestone, Genetec and Geutebrück.

A cost-effective solution

The barox integration empowers system integrators by swiftly identifying network and device issues, offering enhanced diagnostic data on the status of cameras and switches through DMS.

This facilitates remote diagnosis of faults and outages, supported by various network monitoring functions.

Additional tools, including PoE monitoring, cable diagnostics and remote switch traffic monitoring, allow live data traffic visualisation per port, enabling comprehensive analysis of the entire video network and connected cameras.

barox say its switches eliminate the need for on-site engineering visits, offering a cost-effective solution for system integrators to select a device and send a re-boot command in case of a network camera failure.

Intersec 2024

During this year’s Intersec show, the Amstergi booth featured an exhibition of barox’s switches made for video, including rack mount and DIN rail Ethernet switches with 90W Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities.

The showcased switches also highlighted the inclusion of Device Management System (DMS) management and seamless integration with Milestone XProtect Video Management Software.

Rohit Khubchandani, Chief Sales Officer, Amstergi commented: “We are delighted to have launched our new partnership with barox, a leading manufacturer of high-performance Ethernet switches, at the Middle East’s leading security show.

“Visitors to our stand discovered that barox are the only switch manufacturer to integrate with Milestone and that Amstergi is now the one stop shop for barox products in the UAE and Qatar.

“We’re looking forward to supporting the barox brand and the many advantages that their specialist range of switches, specially designed for the demands of video networks, offers professional system integrators in the Middle East.”

“Reliable, high-performance video transmission”

Commenting on the new distributor partnership, Luis Coello, EMEA Sales Director, barox added: “Amstergi’s recognition of barox and its ISO 9001/14001/27001 accreditation as a trusted partner, shows their commitment to quality, high-end hardware, which can satisfy integrators needs for reliable, high-performance video transmission, particularly within a region renowned for its high humidity and extremely high temperatures. 

“We look forward to further supporting Amstergi customers with barox best-in-class cybersecure switches, designed to provide significant added value for operators of professional video security systems, in sectors such as government agencies, transportation, oil & gas, aviation, retail and border control.”
