New Marketing Campaign Offers Free IP Surveillance Poster, 30 Day Evaluations and More

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Nov. 6, 2014 - D-Link today announced it is making a suite of tools, resources and evaluation units available to prospective customers and value added resellers (VARs) as part of a larger push from the company to further solidify itself as a leading IP Surveillance vendor of choice. Among the resources released today are a free 36? x 24? IP Surveillance 101 poster, bandwidth and storage calculators, an interactive floor planner to help determine where cameras should be placed for optimal video surveillance coverage, and 30-day evaluation units for qualified end users and partners.

D-Link has 30 business-class IP Camera models and three Network Video Recorders along with Outdoor Enclosures and Video Management Software (VMS) options to tailor-fit the premise security needs of any sized business. With over two million IP Cameras shipped, there are D-Link IP Camera solutions in national fast food chains, casinos and hospitals supporting a variety of critical business applications. When combined with D-Link's wide range of PoE-enabled Managed or Smart Switches, Wireless Access Points and Storage products, a customer has the ability to customize an entire end-to-end networked video solution.

"More and more businesses are switching from traditional analog surveillance to IP-based solutions due to the flexibility, scalability and additional features they provide," said Michael Hardy, vice president of channel and enterprise sales, D-Link Systems, Inc. "We stand behind our business-class cameras with an industry-leading five-year warranty and we want to offer up all of the tools, resources and support a prospective customer would need to fully understand IP Surveillance and choose D-Link as their partner."
