Parking structures have gone through major transformations in recent years as smart technology continues to improve. Parking structures can now identify open spaces, scream alerts through voice-activated security systems, identify license plates through advanced camera systems, and autodetect pedestrians walking in and out of the structures with motion sensors. Behind this advanced technology is the underlining network which interconnects sensors, cameras, and wireless access points to monitoring stations that can be located anywhere in the world.
However, as older parking structures transition into modernization, connectivity has become an evident issue. The challenges of finding networking equipment that can handle the environmental elements of a parking structure, while still delivering critical real-time communication and providing PoE power with enough ports to handle all the devices in specific areas is extremely difficult.
Antaira has manufactured a unique industrial networking switch that has the capability to handle these types of scenarios. Antaira's LNP-2004G-SFP, a large 20-port count industrial networking switch with gigabit Power over Ethernet and fiber optic SFP module ports, has been designed with scalability, reliability, and throughput in mind.
