The well-known company that deals with connectivity, security and video surveillance participated, as every year, at the essential appointment with SICUREZZA: this year, however, “à la Proust”, it was “on the side of the Smart Building”…
“The side of Swann” and “The side of Guermantes” is the great division of the “Recherche”, the monumental novel by Marcel Proust; allow us to joke a bit, and adapt this division to the 2019 edition of SICUREZZA, the most important Italian trade fair for security, alarm systems, video surveillance and Smart Building. Just the pavilion (the “side” or the “coté”) dedicated to the Smart Building saw the participation of D-Link this year.
Why this choice? The company’s marketing manager, Sara Mariotti, explains it to us: “It’s true, this year we have moved to the smart building side, for the first time since we participate in this fair. The goal was to get closer to the electricity world, to be present not only on the vigilance side, but also for the network infrastructure. Commercially, the idea is to push our industrial switches and Nuclias, our Cloud networking management solution, perfect for installers and retailers who want to increase the offer to customers, providing not only the equipment but also a 360° network management structure.”
In short, D-Link wanted – this year – to broaden its horizon and target new and wider categories of users, with suitable products. “Exactly” – confirms Sara Mariotti. “Visitors to our stand this year are essentially installers and system integrators, the categories we wanted to intercept. There was an excellent turnout, very much in target, also thanks to the fact that the Smart Building pavilion is slightly ‘detached’ from the rest of the Fair, and for us it was the ideal choice, we positioned ourselves consistently with the solutions we want to propose.”
Let’s take a look, then, at these solutions, starting with the new industrial switches: the DIS-200G-12S managed switches and the new DIS-200G-12PS managed PoE switches, specifically designed to operate in a wide range of industrial environments, including at extreme temperatures (between -40° and +75°), without internal moving parts, so as to reduce the need for maintenance and assistance. The fanless housing has also been optimized to facilitate heat transfer. All DIS switches have a 5 year warranty. Among the security cameras, the new panoramic 5-megapixel Fisheye Vigilance model DCS-4625 is definitely worth mentioning, to guarantee 24/7 security for companies and large areas, thanks to 360° coverage and the high resolution sensor with system for correcting image distortion.
Finally, here is Nuclias, the D-Link network management solution for SMEs that offers remote configuration, automated management and on-the-go monitoring of both new and older IoT devices, including access points, managed switches and smart switches. Nuclias has completed its first year, already being able to boast some installations in Italy and Europe, especially in the Hospitality and Educational sector. There is no doubt – according to Sara Mariotti – that “the market trend is favorable to the the Cloud. Nuclias is a practical solution for both user and installer, who can comfortably manage the service from his office, anywhere in the world.”
