BETTER NETWORK, BETTER SURVEILLANCE
Physical Security has quickly evolved from standalone deployments in a slowly innovating industry and virtually no integration with business processes, into a broad-based, highly-networked and increasingly strategic market for organizations. The industry is turning toward standards-based solutions that integrate within existing Ethernet infrastructures and provide higher degrees of manageability and reliability, lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and application integration. Proprietary video surveillance systems are unable to communicate with each other, leading to vendor lock-in and cost-prohibitive maintenance over time. Increasing use of HD cameras create serious performance bottlenecks in the network. With more cameras being introduced in more places, proprietary systems are unable to scale to incorporate new devices and applications.
