IP Networks are the highways required for the distribution of video from IP cameras to the Network Video Recorder (NVR). A well designed IP Network is crucial to the successful deployment of an IP camera system because of the large bandwidth requirements of streaming video across the network.

Individual camera settings can be utilized to minimize the traffic network capacity requirements, especially in locations with infrequent pedestrian traffic that allow for frame-rate, bit-rate and buffering modifications that won't negatively impact recorded video quality of actual incidents.

Once camera type, locations and layout have been considered, an IP Network must be designed to meet the video requirements with a variety of infrastructure options:

  • Fiber Optic Cabling Single Mode or Multi-Mode (inside or wet location rated)
  • Twisted Pair Copper Cat5E or Cat6 (inside or wet location rated)
  • Wireless IP Network Point to Point or encrypted Wi-Fi
  • Bandwidth Required 100MB, Gigabit, 10 Gigabit
  • Future Expansion Capability of Network

  • Network switching is also an important consideration when designing an IP camera network. It is generally advisable to keep a camera IP network segregated from standard data network systems, which can be accomplished with V-LANS in a "smart switch" network when necessary. Location and environmental conditions for the locations housing any IP electronics must also be considered. Electronics can be rated for high temperatures, but generally a controlled environment location will preserve the life span of all electronics. Some of the other considerations for network electronics are:

  • Speed of Backbone Link and Type of Media (Fiber or Copper)
  • Standard switch or Layer 3 Smart Switch (allows remote booting of cameras)
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch ports required for video and power to the cameras
  • Mounting configuration and future expansion capacity (patch-cord link or back plane expansion)
