D-Link camera distinguishes human movement


D-Link's DCS-8302LH outdoor/indoor surveillance camera incorporates AI functionality to distinguish human motion from other moving objects.

The application of AI at the edge in the DCS-8302LH along with passive infrared detection is said to reduce the number of false alarms.

Other features include full HD video (1080p at 30fps), infrared night vision with a 5m range, and built-in microphone and speaker for two-way audio incorporating a 95dB siren.

The DCS-8302LH is described as "weather resistant," suggesting it may be better installed under and eave or some other protection rather than being fully exposed to the elements. The camera's wide operating temperature range – minus 25C to 45C – means there are few parts of Australia where it isn't at home. A stand is included, with provision for screw or cable-tie mounting.

Wi-Fi (802.11g/n, with WPA3) and Ethernet are both supported including IPv6, while Bluetooth LE simplifies setup using the mydlink app, which also provides remote viewing and management.

Alexa and Google Assistant are supported, for example to stream live video from the camera to a suitably-equipped TV.

Recordings can be made to a microSD card (up to 256GB), mydlink cloud, or an ONVIF-compatible NAS, network video recorder or video management system.

Privacy features include stronger protection from brute-force attacks, and individual encryption keys for each camera.

The D-Link DCS-8302LH camera costs $199.95.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
