Simplify the delivery of your security infrastructure by optimizing and automating the deployment of Layer 2 and Layer 3 high availability network infrastructures. One of the biggest obstacles security integrators face when deploying Layer 2 and Layer 3 high availability network infrastructures are restricted resources, whether it’s because they don’t have a large volume of […]

Hyperconverged Infrastructure Solution “ISC West attendees were able to get their hands on our hyperconverged solution and immediately see how easy it is to use and the benefit of adding virtual machines,” says BCDVideo’s Chief Technology Officer Tom Larson. Virtualization was just one of the innovations in BCDVideo’s demo room. Many integrators and end users […]

While looking into multiple Video Management Systems (VMS), it reveals many options provide sustained operational status. Primary, secondary, and failover databases, redundant recording locations, as well as service failover helps to provide continuous uptime. The demand for high availability in physical security systems requires a highly available network to provide the highway so that video […]

When deploying a network optimized for video surveillance, it is critical to consider the overall availability and performance of the network. With more deployments requiring always-on video, networks need to be designed to support the video data it needs to carry. There are a wide variety of options to provide a highly available network, but […]

Designing an IP video surveillance network can be a complex task, with many issues that can occur when the network backbone supporting it is not built correctly. Performance and functionality of the system are often at the forefront of networking problems observed in the video surveillance industry, frequently relating back to the network architecture used. […]

In the video surveillance space, highly available solutions have become the new standard for any form of mission-critical deployment. It is now commonplace to see even mid-level solutions use features that use to be only for high-end hardware, including RAID 5/6 disk protection, redundant power, and the use of local and remote failover servers. What […]

When looking to deploy an IP video surveillance optimized network, one of the critical aspects of the infrastructure to consider is a unicast or multicast-capable network. Unicast and multicast networks each have their use cases within the video surveillance industry and should be understood and considered when deploying a network. Unicast networking is straightforward and […]

Determining which type of architecture to deploy for an IP-based video surveillance system cannot be based upon a one-size fits all approach. It’s important to first understand your customer’s current network limitations and unique video data distribution needs. This approach is contrary to what many manufacturers indicate today, many of which exclusively promote their architecture […]
