View the Webinar

IP has changed the way people are thinking about security for their industrial environments. With the vast capability for collecting and analyzing data that comes with an IP-based security system, the mission is no longer simply surveillance, but an integrated security system.

With IP-based systems, the underlying architecture is central to the strategy. IP enables you to build systems that

  • provide greater flexibility
  • aggregate more and better data more quickly
  • archive, recover and manipulate data fast when the need arises for security forensics work
  • reduce the cost of extending or modifying security requirements

GarrettCom, Inc. gives an overview of IP technology today, describes key infrastructure tools and techniques such as redundant rings, industrially hardened switches, Power over Ethernet, and software for managing cyber security and throughput, and then offers several applications scenarios that demonstrate how you can utilize the power and flexibility of IP-based solutions and interface with corporate IT infrastructure.

The future is IP, and this Webinar gives you the tools you need to grasp it now.
