The New DICE has introduced a patented Matrix SD-WAN platform with AI VPN connections to the site. This new service includes tunneling and full network management for cameras, NVRs, alarm panels and other devices with built-in cyber security site isolation and automated AI VPN credentialing.
As a new installation process, this means that there is no need for dealers to manage networking and no NAT rules need to be created to connect any device at the client site. There is no need to open ports, firewall hole punching, port forwarding or any other networking procedure. This makes setting up site devices and connecting to them easy for installers and provides a simple site management network for connecting and maintaining all site equipment.
Matrix AI VPN maps the network and automatically registers all devices, including the cameras, bringing them all online. Users simply name the camera and create zones in the automation software. In the past, users needed to manually enter the IP address, login, password and have a variety of tools to manage thousands of sites. With full management connectivity to the site, Matrix AI VPN saves security companies time and money.
“We’ve made this scalable, allowing registering and managing tens of thousands or millions of sites,” said Avi Lupo, co-president of the company. “Matrix AI VPN is SD-WAN technology, built into the Matrix automation platform, giving an AI VPN architecture to any user without investing in VPN hardware or network engineers building VPNs to each site. The big advantage is that we're taking the workload off network technicians and making it easier for dealers to offer networked video and other services.”
Dealers can access Matrix AI VPN through central stations with Matrix Interactive. The central station can add Matrix Interactive Video without needing to change their current automation software, providing their dealers, not only with Matrix AI VPN, but a host of new interactive video services.
DICE built this new service as native within its automation platform, which removes the overhead and labor required by networking teams to maintain a VPN or set it up. This also makes camera connections many times faster since they are native on the network with the automation software.
“This is a game changer for the industry,” said Lupo. “Alarm companies can now easily compete and offer network services and isolated camera networks. Keep in mind that our AI VPN works with any automation software and any network device where Dice is the network or SD-Wan solution.”
