IP Surveillance Solutions Become Power over LAN Enabled

London - December 16, 2002 - Power over LAN*, the innovative technology
that allows next generation IP telephones, wireless LAN and Bluetooth
access points to share power and data over the same cable, is now being
deployed in the security monitoring and surveillance arena. As IP
surveillance is increasingly replacing traditional CCTV surveillance and
monitoring devices in enterprise and industrial applications, Power over
LAN technology offers reduced installation costs, uninterrupted power
supply, plus the ability to install remote video cameras in locations
where separate power lines are impractical.

PowerDsine, the leader in the emerging Power over LAN market place, is
cooperating with several network camera and video server vendors, such as
Axis Communications. PowerDsine is offering a solution that enables power
feeding over standard Ethernet cables for a range of IP surveillance
solutions. These IP surveillance solutions combine network cameras and
video servers into a converged IP solution that is more efficient to
install and manage than traditional CCTV surveillance equipment.

By using PowerDsine's Power over LAN midspan in tandem to an Ethernet
switch to feed power and data via the Ethernet cable, the installation
cost for the network video products is kept to a minimum. Another key
benefit of using the Power over LAN technology is its ability to
distribute battery backed up power all the way out to the network video
products, which are often installed in remote locations where no power
outlets are available.

The combination of PowerDsine's Power over LAN midspans and IP
surveillance solutions allow enterprises to install a scalable solution,
gradually adding more video products in a network. The PowerDsine 6000
series Power over LAN midspans feature 1, 6 or 12 ports and offer an
option of remote monitoring and control of the devices.

"As the leader in the fast growing network camera and video server
markets, Axis believes that PowerDsine's Power over LAN products are an
important complementary solution for these markets in 2003," said Joacim
Tullberg, Product Group Manager, Axis Communications.

"The benefits brought to the Wireless LAN and VoIP (Voice over IP) sectors
by Power over LAN technology, have been expanded into the network video
and security arena," said Amir Lehr, Vice President of Marketing and
Strategic Planning, PowerDsine Ltd. "We see great market potential for IP
surveillance solutions that combine the power and flexibility of network
video technology with our easy to install Power over LAN technology."
