New products from Niveo Professional
IP Networking is becoming an essential part of our industry. With the number of devices now requiring IP connectivity, it’s becoming evidently uncommon to find an AV install without the requirement for at least a network router and switch.
Niveo Professional, proudly distributed in Australia by Amber Technology, specialises in high quality networking products designed for, and built on the experience of, the custom integration market. Niveo products are sold exclusively through the residential and commercial custom integration channel, serving a well-protected marketing strategy and assuring you, our dealer partners, a healthy product margin.
The Niveo product range includes routers, switches, Access Points, PDU, NAS and UPS systems. As the below table illustrates, no other IP networking product vendor in the AV market has quite the offering of Niveo Professional:
The attached pricelist details all available Niveo products, the majority of which are currently held in ample supply in Sydney. The following highlights some of the key products and recent additions to the Niveo Professional range.
NR50 Multi-WAN VPN Router
Any customer complaints are caused by AV installations being ‘glued’ together by an insecure and unstable ISP (Internet Service Provider)-provided router. The NR50 router offers a very affordable solution offering demarcation from the ISP. By incorporating the ISP-provided router in the network, but setting it to simply be the gateway to the internet leaves any concerns for internet connection to the ISP with the ISP (i.e. should a fault in connection to the ISP exist, the ISP can provide the client service on the hardware provided by, and therefore familiar to, the ISP).
The NR50 allows multiple WAN or internet connections to be used simultaneously and as failover if one ISP connection fails. The NR50 also features Intelligent Bandwidth Management, which allows complete control of the network usage. Bandwidth can be controlled on SSID, user and device level – control is not only of the bandwidth available, but also allows time based scheduling (for instance to avoid the kids downloading after a certain hour), prioritising and even services based. The NR50’s VPN capabilities allow secure remote connection to the network, to allow the integrator to provide remote support to their client’s network or allow the client remote connectivity with their remote locations like branch offices, second homes, office-to-home or security companies.
NWA200 In-wall Wireless PoE Access Point
Ideal for installation into both residential and commercial applications like school campuses, university dormitories, guest houses, hotel rooms and apartment buildings, the NWA200 is an in-wall wireless Access Point with additional hardwired connectivity.
Additional connections include:
o An RJ45 socket for deployment of devices such as IP-TV, IP-Phone or IP Cameras;
o An RJ11 connection for conventional telephone line; and
o A 5V 500mA USB charger port.
The NWA200 is powered fully by PoE (Power over Ethernet; PoE injector is included), which avoids the need for power cabling throughout a building.
