Network Optix / Hanwha Cloud Access Tested

By Sean Patton, Published Jul 02, 2019, 12:13pm EDT

Remote cloud access is becoming a bigger differentiator, as cybersecurity issues underscore the problems of port forwarding and many integrators and users struggle with the limitations of VPNs.

IPVM Image

Network Optix (and its various OEMs) have a built-in remote cloud access feature, NxCloud. How well does NxCloud work? We tested on both Network Optix own branded software as well as OEM Hanwha Wave, sharing our findings on:

  • What Are The Capabilities and Limitations
  • How Does Remote Streaming Perform
  • What Clients Are Supported
  • How Is It Configured

Also, see Exacq Remote Cloud Access Tested and look out for our upcoming cloud remote access shootout.

Note: Network Optix and Its OEMs

Network Optix OEMs VMS software to many. manufacturers. Due to time and space constraints, we tested the original software and large OEM Hanwha Wave. Other Network Optix OEM partners include: Daekyo CNS (Korea), Digital Watchdog (US), IoNetworks, Sefica (Belgium, Luxembourg), Senturian Solutions (China), XCCELO (Germany)
