IP Video Surveillance Whitepapers

These documents summarize high-level design recommendations and best practices to implement IP Video Surveillance on the enterprise network infrastructure. In some instances, existing network equipment and topologies have the necessary configuration and performance characteristics to support high-quality IP Video Surveillance. In other instances, network hardware might require upgrading or reconfiguration to support increased bandwidth needed to support video. Quality-of-service (QoS) techniques are important for any design because video has similar--in some instances, more stringent--requirements than VoIP for loss, latency, and jitter.IP Video Surveillance is a part of medianet--a network initiative to incorporate all forms of video on the enterprise network.
