Video Surveillance System and Security Camera Network Technology

Posted by Amy Hite on August 4, 2016

Businesses need to have a video surveillance system and security camera network designed for their current technology. Companies cannot afford to have high resolution video slowing down their internal and public Internet and data access.

High availability Internet is critical today. The Pittsburgh Post reported that 97% of people searched for products or services online.

Building an advanced video surveillance system and camera network was a key topic in the Time Warner Business Class (@TWCBusiness) podcast How Big Data & Fiber Can Transform your Business with host Michael Harris and Stealth Monitoring President David Charney. See the video and read the script.

Cisco Systems predicted that IP network traffic will grow an estimated 300% in the next five years and that broadband speeds would need to double to keep up. Harris noted three trends businesses should focus on. Commercial businesses should pay attention as your video surveillance system with camera network may be affected by all of them.

First, busy-hour (peak period) Internet traffic continues to increase at a faster rate than average traffic. This peak period is generally from 7 to 11pm and so affects live video monitoring, which needs the most bandwidth at night after most businesses close.

Second, metro traffic is expected to grow twice as fast as long-haul traffic. This applies to most companies with a video surveillance system, because they're installed to combat crime, which typically is concentrated in cities.

Third, more than 50% of IP traffic will come from non-PC devices, such as mobile devices, wireless networks, surveillance cameras, sensors, NVRs and video recorders, network switches, etc.
