Raymond,

The Shortest Path Bridging technology provides a simple and robust network that removes the complexity of configuration. Two years ago at ASIS, Avaya gave away a $200.00 Amazon gift certificate to the individual who could configure a Shortest Path Bridging network, consisting of five switches, supporting five unique subnets, and multicast routing the fastest. The winning time was 1 minute and 57 seconds. This is accomplished by single line configuration on the network switches. Allowing the switches to configure through automation, also removes the possibility of configuration error, and reduces repeated truck rolls to site. In turn reduced visits to sites reduces support costs that erode margins. The individual who won the ASIS challenge has very little network experience, but knows the surveillance industry very well. If you would like to know more, please do not hesitate to reach out to BCD or Avaya for additional details.
