Dahua USA Announces DSS 8.0 Software with Easy User Interface, Enhanced Scalability, and High Performance for Greater ROI.

Dahua Technology Co. LTD | August 26, 2021

Dahua Technology, a world-leading, video-centric, provider of smart IoT solutions, is introducing Version 8.0 of their DSS Video Management Software (VMS) to its North American market. The software upgrade incorporates a smaller file size for the installation package, faster startup time, and an easy-to-deploy secure design. It also boasts high scalability and performance to maximize the investment of DSS users.

DSS 8.0 is designed for ease of use, efficiency, and flexibility. Multiple deployment methods allow for more customization: cloud deployment is supported by AWS and virtualization software is supported by VMware. Device access methods are diverse: IP, P2P, DDNS, and Auto-register, giving the user several options for compatibility with third party devices.

“Version 8.0 gives users greater control over how they utilize the DSS VMS and lets them easily integrate it with third party devices, while not having to worry about security or user-friendliness,” remarked Damon Chou, solutions product manager for Dahua USA. “It takes a low investment, both in cost and server requirements, to get started with DSS and users can easily scale as they go.”
The DSS 8.0 interface is available in more than twenty languages and features a revitalized UI/UE design that is simpler, more responsive, and more colorful. The new application design is based more firmly on actual business cases, which Dahua calls “3 + 2 + 1 + n.” The applications are grouped into modules, with the “n” signifying the capability to include future modules. The first module has three applications: Monitoring Center, which unifies live view and playback; Event Center, which provides an analytics dashboard for real-time and historical events; and DeepXplore. DeepXplore makes target search faster and easier by implementing intelligent retrieval of human and vehicular targets.

The second module consists of Access Management, which includes access control, video intercom, visitor management, and attendance management, and Vehicle Entrance and Exit, which manages vehicle ingress and egress through functions such as License Plate Recognition and parking space information. The final module is the Maintenance Center, in a revamped format that is easier to maintain and ensures greater stability. The Maintenance Center gives a visual on the health of the platform, showing the status of equipment, channels, and services, as well as automatically sending reports.

For peace of mind, DSS 8.0 was created for application security, privacy, network security, and data security. The storage duration of each video channel can be configured and there is secure encryption on network transmission, storage, download, and export. Three-tier user authority employs hierarchical management to let administrators define different levels of access.

Finally, the investment required to implement DSS 8.0 is low and the software is easily upgradable, with purchase-on-demand functionality. DSS Express can support up to 256 channels with licenses; DSS Pro can support up to 2,000 channels per server with a maximum of 20,000 channels with a distributed setup. The improved architecture of DSS 8.0 reduces the load on the server, and cascade expansion allows for a phased investment. This means that the system can be built in stages – and with different DSS models – without dismantling the existing system. Overall, DSS Version 8.0 gives users improved functionality and greater return on their investment, letting them manage their security system with greater confidence and efficiency.

Security Capabilities are a Critical Element to 5G Success

5G Americas | December 10, 2021

5G networks based on standard technical specifications from the Third Generation Partnership Project continue to be the most widely adopted and secure wireless cellular technology in existence. 5G Americas, the voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas announced the publication of a new white paper entitled ‘Security for 5G’ which details features and recommendations for securing 5G networks and provides an update on the security enhancements introduced by 3GPP in Releases 15 and 16. The increased speeds and lower latency of 5G networks are beginning to impact nearly every facet of life for consumers and enterprises. Fortunately, security has been the built into 5G right from its inception and has been required throughout its development, planning and deployment.” Chris Pearson, President of 5G Americas As increased bandwidth, higher data rates, and a surge of new devices and connections have made managing network security more complex, 5G Americas has provided nearly annual updates around the topic of security in wireless cellular networks. ‘Security for 5G’ is the latest update, building on prior work and focuses on evolving 5G security considerations. This white paper addresses emerging challenges and opportunities, making recommendations for securing 5G networks in the context of the evolution to cloud-based and distributed networks: 3GPP security enhancements in 5G 5G security considerations Zero-trust networks 3GPP Release 16 security enhancements Security for 5G vertical segments, such as transportation, manufacturing, and critical infrastructure Supply chain security Open RAN security Additionally, the white paper provides insight into securing 5G in private, public, and hybrid cloud deployment models. Topics such as orchestration, automation, cloud-native security, and application programming interface (API) security are addressed. The transition from perimeter-based security to a zero-trust architecture to protect assets and data from external and internal threats is also discussed. Pramod Nair, Technical Solutions Architect - Security, Cisco and 5G Americas group co-leader on the paper commented, “5G will allow operators to evolve toward new business models. For 5G to achieve its potential, organizations must embrace multi-layered security that goes far beyond 3GPP specifications by using a pragmatic, multi-layered approach. End-to-End Security should cater to RAN, SDN, MEC, and hybrid, multi-cloud deployments based on a cloud native architecture, secure CI/CD, and zero trust security for 5G.” Scott Poretsky, Director of Security, North America, Network Product Solutions at Ericsson and 5G Americas group co-leader further added, “5G continues to integrate with other key technology enablers.
