Building a carrier grade video surveillance network requires proper planning and design of the network. The Network is as important as other components of video surveillance like IP cameras, Video Management System and Storage system for video streams. The Network must have the capacity to carry IP Video Multicast and Unicast streams efficiently with the required Quality of Service. It must be intelligent enough to ensure five 9’s of network availability, as even seconds of network failure can prove very expensive.
A foolproof, efficient video surveillance network must be well endowed with carrier grade features.
