High-Bandwidth Convergence is Changing the Landscape of Physical Security Systems

Integrating your physical security infrastructure with your IP network results in reduced installation and materials costs, simplifies future moves/adds/changes, and streamlines your supply chain. Connecting and powering security devices using the network makes sense from both a financial and an operational standpoint, offering integrated control, cost savings, improved analytics and an enhanced ability to leverage future technology advancements.

But adding security to your network will also increase bandwidth demand, especially if your video security system uses 4K cameras to capture high-quality images. It’s important to understand the benefits gained, the bandwidth needed, and the best way to optimize performance when migrating your analog security system to the IP network.
