The Cisco ® Integrated Video Surveillance solution enables you to rapidly deploy highly distributed, IP-enabled video surveillance at your offices while migrating traditional analog surveillance equipment to IP.
The solution offers the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) for the branch office, ease of integration through network transparency, reliable data interoperability, and maximized overall security. It allows you to consolidate costly branch-office servers and deploy new applications centrally while still offering real-time access to physical security video and data.
The Cisco Integrated Video Surveillance solution is composed of:

• Cisco Integrated Services Routers

• Cisco IP Video Surveillance 16-Port Analog Video Gateway (AVG) Network Module

• Cisco Video Management and Storage System (VMSS) Network Module

• Cisco Integrated Storage System (ISS) Network Module

• Additional products from the Cisco Video Surveillance Manager product line

This data sheet is for the Cisco Integrated Storage System (ISS) Network Module for the Cisco integrated services routers.

Product Overview

Cisco ISS offers a powerful system for storage of video archives in a highly distributed video surveillance system:

• Store archival video locally

– Up to 500 GB of local storage on the ISS

– Combine with VMSS for up to 1 TB of storage capacity

• Manage all archives through Video Surveillance Manager on the VMSS module

In addition to these benefits of distributed video surveillance, Cisco ISS provides a low TCO solution and transparently preserves all existing network services. For additional information about Cisco ISS, visit
