Spend enough time around networks and eventually someone will mention BICSI, the oft-referenced but only vaguely known standards body prevalent in the IT world. The question is: how do BICSI and their guidelines practically affect your surveillance installation?
In this note we look at this question, key things to know, and other areas they cover. Specifically we explain:
Interestingly, the 14th edition of the TDMM was released a few weeks ago. The new edition (as it relates to video surveillance/security systems) does not fundamentally change, but if notable concepts are clarified/changed in subsequent BISCI committee discussions, we will update here.
For example, there is a new 14th edition portion on PoE that we are reviewing, but the TDMM content 'catches up' to existing practice rather than directs changes.
Very interesting end in regards to the Security Industry. One would think that with a lot of systems especially Fire Alarm Systems, Life Safety would demand a standard, although I know there are Codes.
