Cisco announced a video surveillance solution enabled on the Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR) platform. By incorporating video surveillance network modules into the Cisco ISR, the solution converges physical security over an IP network.
The solution also works with non-IP video surveillance equipment to enable a migration to IP-enabled video surveillance. This will allow the large installed base of over 4 million Cisco ISR and new customers to deploy video surveillance as part of their existing infrastructure, while helping to reduce the total cost of ownership, improve operational flexibility, combine physical and network security, and enhance performance and reliability.
The new modules for the Cisco 2800 and 3800 Series Integrated Services Routers, which feature the Cisco Video Surveillance Media Manager line of products, include:
- Cisco Video Management and Storage System (VMSS) Network Module, which helps enable local archival and management of video images. Through the combination of Cisco Video Surveillance Operations Manager software and Cisco Video Surveillance Media Server software scaled for the branch or remote office environment, the Cisco VMSS allows customers to manage and monitor multiple video sources through a single converged interface. The VMSS provides support for the Cisco VS IP Camera, as well as most major third-party IP cameras and encoders.
- Cisco IP Video Surveillance 16-Port Analog Video Gateway Network Module, which provides high-density analog video encoding, up to 30 frames per second (fps) per port at up to 4CIF video resolution, support for Motion JPEG (MJPEG) and MPEG4, remote Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) camera control, integrated contact closure ports, and embedded motion detection.
Cisco Video Surveillance is also now available on the Cisco 3200 Series Rugged Integrated Services Router.
