Physical Security Mirrors the Evolution of IP Telephony

September 24, 2012 - 0 Comments

Analysts estimate that by 2013, more than 50 percent of all video surveillance deployments will be managed by IT on the IP network in order to support the coming deluge of bandwidth-heavy video data.

Similar to the evolution of telephony, physical security is becoming an IP-based solution to optimize scalability and reduce complexity and costs.

To support this evolution, Cisco has announced Video Surveillance Manager 7.0, the industry’s first solution built from the ground-up and certified to run in virtualized computing environments, making it possible for customers in healthcare, public sector and retail to move beyond traditional basic safety and security surveillance deployments and use video to transform the way they run their businesses through hyper-scalability and ease of configuration.

The Cisco Video Surveillance Manager 7 enables network and security teams to collaborate effectively in a highly scalable environment to optimize video experiences, reducing operational costs and solution risk while expediting deployments of innovative, transformational solutions.

This next-generation of intelligent network-integrated video surveillance and IT applications offer unrivaled ease and speed of deployment to support improved safety and security operations, communication and collaboration.

Watch below as I, the general manager of Emerging Technologies and CTO at Cisco, discuss how physical security is becoming an IP-based solution to maximize scalability and cut costs.
