New Cisco Video Surveillance - Still Going Nowhere

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jul 14, 2015

'Everyone' knew Cisco would dominate video surveillance back in 2008.

They failed.

But, they have not given up. 

Recently the company touted a total revamping of their various lines, and video surveillance was a key part of the plan. So has Cisco's new focus made it a contender in the physical security space? 

Answer: No.

In this note, we explain the following:

  • Their overall new platform approach
  • What their specific Video Surveillance improvements were
  • How they are reducing bandwidth by 95%
  • What is the state of their Access Control offering
