Planning and Design IP Surveillance Planning and Design
This chapter introduces the concepts of why an enterprise network should consider migrating from a standalone analog network to a converged IP network supporting voice, video, and data. The following topics are addressed:
•Introduction to the concepts of video resolutions, codecs, aspect ratios, frame rates and requirements for camera placement to achieve the required number of pixels per-foot to provide sufficient video quality to meet the needs of the physical security manager.
•Network deployment models and the IP transports used by IP video surveillance cameras.
•The network requirements, video traffic flows between endpoints, bandwidth requirements are discussed.
•A design checklist to help the physical security and network manager achieve the goal of integrating IP video surveillance on the IP network.
•A case study for implementing IP video surveillance on a campus deployment.
