By Brian Karas, Published Oct 31, 2016, 09:41am EDT (Info+)

Axis is doing a full marketing push for a new TCO study, with various Axis divisions and their media partners promoting this TCO study.

This certainly is not the first Axis TCO study. For example, in 2010, Axis' dubious Analog vs IP TCO study created significant debate. 

However, now Axis is taking a much different approach and segmentation, reflecting Axis changing strategy and two questionable selected.

This concept/TCO study is not new to Axis and I would bet this is the same study they have promoted for many years with an update to add zipstream

No, completely different. The older one(s) had small camera counts that reflected average deployments while this one has shifted to mega deployments.
