    Some technical professionals may take offense to the following statement, but our technical tendency whenever a server/NVR starts to drop frames or “go black” is to start dropping camera resolutions, drop frame rates, or drop camera bitrates, and/or add more servers/NVRs. So little attention, historically, has been paid to the actual ‘network’ equipment in these network video recording solutions. Not so un-noticed, video surveillance puts such a tremendous load on I.P. networks (just ask the corporate network admin) and has been a major bottleneck component since the first network surveillance camera came online. Where typical corporate networks have been more plug-and-play in their usage, video surveillance pushes the geek level of network management to a much higher level of sophistication. If we are honest with ourselves, this intimidates many physical security/video surveillance professionals. To be fair, these security professionals are not computer networking experts. Trying to understand the impact RTSP has on a network or the importance of every frame making it from end-to-end has not been as important to some smaller installations. However, when keeping a video feed pumping with no interruption is important then it becomes vital to understand the network configurations.

    Shortest Path Bridging is exactly what I needed to know about at this point in my career. Transition from ‘convergence’ to ‘re-convergence’ makes perfect sense as we figure out how to tame network surveillance. I’m still keen to know how i could start “deploying casino type networks within a day” 🙂

    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.

      Thank you very much Darren for taking time to get back and throw more light on Shortest Path Bridging technology, which I’m definitely falling in love with.
