Lots of generic network training exists but none of it really explains how it relates to actual video surveillance systems or focuses on video surveillance problems. The IPVM courses solve this.
What the IPVM IP Networking Course Covers
In 12 sessions, using our industry-leading IP Networking Book 2018, we cover the fundamentals of IP networking as it impacts video surveillance.
The course 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.
Teaches network discovery and setup of IP camera addresses, choosing between dynamic and static, public and private IP addresses.
(3) Network Hardware
Explains how network hardware including switches, routers, extenders NICs and CPEs are used in IP video surveillance systems.
(4) PoE, VLANs and QoS
(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.
Learn how IT organization BICSI's standards apply to video surveillance projects, including key installation issues of cabling and equipment.
(8) Remote Access
In this class, we'll cover the popular and most secure methods of accessing video surveillance via VPNs, DDNS, 'phone home' methods, and others.
Breaks down the use and tradeoffs of different password approaches, HTTPs, 802.1x and physical security measures to secure IP cameras and VMS servers.
This class examines recent major attacks on networked security gear, examines manufacturer response, and which common brands are best/worst at protecting against these threats.
Explains how wireless is used in video surveillance, looking at frequency ranges, bandwidth constraints and tradeoffs of topologies (PTP, PTMP, Mesh, Cellular).
(12) Managed Networks
To cap off the course, IPVM shows and explains a live IP video surveillance system, configuring a managed switch and connecting IP cameras, including VLANs, QoS, bandwidth management, network security and more.
Who Should and Should NOT Take this Course
