IP Video Surveillance is one of the most important applications for companies today since real time video surveillance and analytics can be used not only to protect the business, people and assets, but it can also be used as the eyes, ears and memory of the business to improve decision making and operations, significantly increasing the value of people, processes, data and things.
Internet of Everything
So, if that doesn’t sway you, here are five good reasons to check out Network Design and Implementation for IP Video Surveillance (BRKEVT-2311)
Your Business: IP Video Surveillance and related analytics applications are becoming the eyes and the ears of business. Beyond safety and security, there are many business use cases and applications that can save your company valuable time, money, and resources.
Your Network: Similar to two way video, and streaming video, video surveillance is one of the most demanding applications on a network and you will be introduced to ways to meet this demand.
Your Skills: Increased technical understanding IP Video Surveillance design and implementation is a great way enhance and add to your existing skills.
Your Future: The Internet of Things has made many new solutions possible with fog computing, open application eco-system partners, and analytics with IP Video Surveillance that is a central component.
Your Cisco Team -- Cisco technical experts, Lionel Hunt and Jason Lee are delivering this together and have received rave reviews in past sessions. If this isn’t one of your favorite sessions of Cisco Live, I’ll eat my hat.*
Cisco 819 ISR and HD IP video camera on board one of 34 connected buses at Cisco Live
Last week when Cisco Live attendees hopped on one of 34 connected shuttle buses in Orlando, they saw the Internet of Things (IoT) in action. The buses provided service for a record breaking 20,000 attendees traveling between 17 hotels and the Orange County Convention Center.
Free Wi-Fi kept attendees securely connected from the time they left their hotel until they reached the convention center without losing connectivity. They simply used the same Cisco Live SSID and password on the buses as in the convention center. Greater productivity and an enhanced service for attendees made for a great experience…but, that’s not all.
Video cameras help keep passengers around the world safer and more connected and Cisco Live was no exception. Each connected bus had an on-board Cisco HD IP video camera which sent a live feed to a monitor in the Cisco IoT Pavilion.
More than 50 touchscreen kiosks helped attendees in the convention center track important event information along with the bus schedule and route information.
Beyond keeping attendees connected, there was a lot going on under the hood…literally. The Cisco 819 Integrated Services Router (ISR) did more than just provide passenger Wi-Fi. It enabled high speed voice, video and data communication 24/7 …everywhere! The vibrations of a moving bus, a few spilled beverages, Florida’s high humidity and hot summer temps posed no challenge for the ruggedized 819 ISR that delivers Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications in even the harshest conditions.
Back in the Cisco Connected Transportation booth, a monitor showed live GPS tracking of every bus in the fleet and visually tracked all buses and their location on a color coded interactive map. On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) monitoring captured real-time vehicle telematics such as speed, tire pressure, RPM, engine temperature and fuel efficiency. This data was sent to the 819 ISR which transmitted the information to Davra Networks’ RuBan Suite for visual representation.

Additionally, areas around schools, playgrounds and other locations with reduced speed limits can be identified as “safety” areas using geofencing to send warnings or alerts or even take automatic action when a warning is triggered. Managers can be notified immediately when accidents occur or speed thresholds are exceeded. On-board digital signs can display specific messages based on GPS location. The possibilities are nearly endless
The robust solution increases safety and fuel efficiency, reduces operating costs and enhances the passenger experience while helping transit operators comply with industry regulations and government mandates. Cisco’s Connected Fleet Management solution is bringing the IoT to life!
Wishing all of you in the U.S. a safe and happy 4th of July!
We came together at ASIS, September 2012 in Philadelphia and made good progress with Plugfest – The Media Services Proxy (MSP) CDN program for validating the interoperability of your IP Surveillance cameras with the Cisco Network. We shared with you the capabilities of MSP, the value it can bring for you, and had a live lab where we tested (plug-and-play) your cameras with the MSP software at the event.
Since then we have been working with many of you on getting you on boarded with the CDN program so you could be our official partners, and have also been working on analyzing the lab data we gathered at ASIS.
We will be at ISC West 2013 to share our progress and next steps with you. I take great pleasure in inviting you to our sessions at ISC West –
Schools are facing increasing security challenges, ranging from campus violence to thefts, from vandalism to natural disasters. Abductions, Shootings, Bullying, Thefts, Vandalism, Visitor Management, Bomb threats, Fire, Earthquakes, Local Community Emergencies.
43% more than 2 in 5 campuses lack a visitor management system
39% have a video system not integrated with other systems
33% have radio systems that can’t interoperate with first responder from other jurisdictions
25% or 1 in 4 campuses do not feel prepared to respond to active shooter incidents
Higher Education and school districts often have sufficient network infrastructures to support everything they need in terms of unified collaborative safety and security applications on the network including video surveillance, electronic access controls and incident management.
