Easy Transition to IP with Professional Services
The IP surveillance market continues to grow, with IMS Research forecasting IP cameras to outsell analog beginning in 20141. However, industry experts also recognize some security integrators are hesitant to make the switch from CCTV because theydo not have expertise in IP networking. D-Link’s Professional Services program provides a wealth of high-value presale, installation and post-sale support services, including access to experts who are uniquely qualified to assess a customer’s application requirements and assist with simple and complex installations, including multi-location IP surveillance installations. Security integrators can leverage Professional Services for added profitability as they develop their own IP practice.

Known as the leader in IP networking2, D-Link is the only company to offer small- to medium-sized businesses a complete end-to-end IP surveillance solution, including cameras, network switches, wireless access points and a variety of network storage solutions designed specifically with video archival in mind. Security integrators will benefit from the company’s industry-leading camera technology, which includes feature-rich megapixel IP cameras in the most sought-after form factors including box, dome, bullet, cube, pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) and speed dome. Further, D-Link recently announced the DSN-4000 series xStack® Storage iSCSI SAN Array family and the ShareCenter® Pro family of unified network storage solutions which are well suited for archiving video, and delivering performance, scalability and ease-of-deployment.
