IP Networking 2016 Book Released

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Feb 24, 2016

The new IP Networking Book 2016 is a 208 page in-depth guide that teaches you how IT and telecom technologies impact modern security systems. Members may download it here.

The book will give you the knowledge and the confidence to make the right decisions when designing and deploying video surveillance systems on IP networks and working with IT departments. Plus, it has been significantly expanded to cover new developments in network security as well as more in-depth guidance on installation / implementation issues.

What The IPVM IP Networking Book Teaches

(1) Bandwidth

The book starts with bandwidth, one of the key challenges of running IP video over networks, breaking down what drives camera bandwidth consumption and the ranges of network speeds available.

(2) Addressing

Teaches network discovery and setup of IP camera addresses, choosing between dynamic and static, public and private IP addresses.

(3) Network Hardware

Explains how switches, routers, extenders NICs and CPEs are used in IP video surveillance systems.

(4) PoE, VLANs and QoS

Breaks down the key issues and options in using PoE to power IP cameras and the use of VLANs and QoS with network switches.

(5) Protocols

Covering TCP/UDP, Unicast/Multicast, NTP and SNMP, we explain the tradeoffs of each of these for using IP cameras and VMSes.

(6) Network Cabling

Explains the different forms of network cabling, the practical tradeoffs between UTP and STP, and best practices in cabling IP networks connected to IP cameras and recorders.

(7) BICSI

Learn how IT organization BICSI's standards apply to video surveillance projects, including key installation issues of cabling and equipment.

(8) Network Security

Breaks down the use and tradeoffs of different password approaches, HTTPs, 802.1x and physical security measures to secure IP cameras and VMS servers.

(9) Remote Network Access

Compares and contrasts the options to allow remote network access to your video surveillance, featuring Port forwarding, Universal Plug and Play (UPnP), Dynamic DNS, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and Cloud / 'Phone Home' (e.g., Axis AVHS, Dropcam).

(10) Wireless

Explains how wireless is used in video surveillance, looking at frequency ranges, bandwidth constraints and tradeoffs of topologies (PTP, PTMP, Mesh, Cellular).

Course / Certification on IP Networking

We run our IP Networking for Video Surveillance Course, using this book, with live classes, graded assignments, interactive discussions and certifications for those who pass. The next IP networking course is Summer 2016 - learn more.

WOW...super stuff

Only thing I feel is, didn't find one of the "most wanted" term in network swtiches, Mpps ~ Million Packets Per Second

Excellent resource John, well done.

Any possibility of having it translated into Spanish? :)

Estás de voluntario? ;)

In general, translating into Spanish and Chinese are something we think / talk about but it's not something we've decided / been able to focus on yet.

I don't habla a word mate, they don't generally teach that in British schools and it's definitely a requirement living in South Florida! Fortunately most equipment manuals are multi-lingual and VMS software can be deployed in a choice of languages usually.

I'm sure it's already been translated into Chinese though ;)

"I'm sure it's already been translated into Chinese though ;)"

you're not funny! :)

Would you pay for it? Yo lo puedo hacer.

i have an employee who speaks spanish as a second language... I will make a comment to him about it and he will take it as a challenge and most likely translate it...

havent read it yet, but im glad you put it in book form.

are any hardcover books available for purchase?

No, it's a good idea though! We just have not focused on making it ready for print publication. We will keep this in mind for the future.

> Gigabits is billions, e.g., 5Gb/s is equal to 5,000,000b/s. [page 7]

New batteries for your calculator??

My style guide like to leave a space between the number and the units -- for readability. So "5 Gb/s".

looks the download link not work, "page not find", could please check it? thanks.

Peter, I just checked and it works for me.

I'll email you a PDF copy.

Thanks John, got the book and really helpful, cheers !!!!!!

as always, great source...
