Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF)
ONVIF is an open industry forum for the development of a global standard for the interface of IP-based physical security products. ONVIF identifies a standard for how IP products within video surveillance and other physical security areas can communicate with each other ensuring interoperability between products regardless of brand. The DCS-2230 is ONVIF-compliant and therefore compatible with many third party Video Management Software (VMS) solutions.

Business Benefits

"The equipment value is outstanding. We could be buying something else more expensive, but I don’t think we could buy anything more reliable. With D-Link, we can buy more switches with a limited budget. "
