Training: IP Networks for Video Surveillance

By John Honovich, Published Apr 24, 2010, 08:00pm EDT

Deploying IP video surveillance requires understanding the key devices and technologies used in IP networks. Unlike analog video surveillance, 'connecting' IP cameras has far more options and nuances.

In the pro section, we provide a 39 minute screencast that explains important aspects of IP networks for use with video surveillance. We provide a series of demonstrations showing how different settings impact connecting to IP cameras.

Notable aspects/items we cover:

  • Ethernet
  • Ethernet vs IP
  • Unicast, Multicast and Broadcast
  • Ports
  • TCP vs UDP
  • Hubs, Switches and Routers
  • Port Forwarding
  • DDNS
  • VLANs
  • QoS

Pre-requisite: an understanding of IP addresses or review of our IP addressing training report.
