VoIP Providers Moving into SecurityBy: John Honovich, Published on Jun 05, 2009
A new survey article from Telcom magazine provides advice to VoIP service providers about entering the video surveillance market. Best comment was the recommendation that VoIP providers bundle IP video surveillance with communications infrastructure during the initial design to bloick traditional security vendors. Additionally, th article advocated the use of Video as a Service (they called it Web CCTV). In the article, large-scale telecom integrator Cable & Wireless reports offering a Video service. No details were provided to judge its value.
[Update 2012: VoIP providers have not made significant inroads into video surveillance.]
