IP Video Network Deployment Survey Results

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 10, 2011

One of the great promises of IP video surveillance systems is network convergence - Using the company's IT network to carry data, voice and IP video surveillance together. Claimed benefits included reduced costs, greater reliability and simpler maintenance as a single network replaces multiple networks for IT and surveillance applications. Mega IT companies like Cisco have championed this for years.

Unfortunately, converged networks turn out to be more myth than reality in the real world. 76% of integrators in our IPVM Survey report that they most commonly use dedicated networks for IP Video Surveillance while only 24% reuse / integrate with the existing company network.
