Today’s heightened requirements for security, public safety, and crime prevention have created an unprecedented worldwide demand for cost-effective, flexible, and reliable video surveillance systems. 

This paper introduces the benefits of using wireless technology based on Internet Protocol (IP) for video surveillance. 

We begin by describing the benefits of IP-based networking compared to traditional Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) technology, and the benefits of wireless networking. We point out that by combining IP and wireless technologies for their video surveillance solutions, companies and organizations can realize the benefits of both. We go on to introduce some of the important technical aspects of surveillance technology, and describe the main challenges involved in delivering surveillance services—challenges that have been addressed by EION’s own wireless surveillance solutions. Next, we describe the opportunities created by the new technologies for enterprises and security companies. Finally, we describe how EION, a leader in wireless IP-based networking, is spearheading the movement to wireless IP surveillance with innovative solutions based on their best-of-breed wireless networking products.

Advantages of wireless IP video surveillance:

  • Less expensive than wired solutions

  • Can use existing IP network for video surveillance

  • Can be used to monitor remote locations

  • Can be set up, reconfigured, expanded or disassembled quickly to add video surveillance to special events

  • Video images can be transmitted over secure

  • Internet connection or private IP network for little or no cost.

  • Scalable—can be expanded at little cost without having to lay wire or cable

  • Can be integrated with solutions that provide surveillance in high-speed

Wireless IP Surveillance—the Benefits of Both IP Networking and Wireless

The trend toward using IP networks for surveillance purposes is part of a larger drive to move more and more types of services (video, voice over IP, in addition to data services) to IP. By now, the benefits of IP-based networking are probably familiar:

  • Earlier technical challenges regarding quality of service, throughput, and processing performance have been addressed, making IP a sound alternative to traditional analog and privately owned or controlled communication mediums.

  • Transmitting video, data, and voice messages over the Internet or a Virtual Private Network (VPN) costs much less than traditional alternatives, allowing enterprises to reduce their telecommunications costs, and service providers to add more subscribers and deliver more diverse services for a relatively low rate. 

The benefits of wireless communications are also widely recognized:

  • Wireless networking has allowed many companies, organizations, and even countries to make Internet access, as well as applications such as telephony widely available to both urban and remote rural areas without assuming the expense involved in laying cable lines or copper wires.

  • Wireless technology has advanced to the point where the quality of the services delivered over wireless networks is equivalent to that of wired alternatives.

Now wireless technology can be combined with IP-based networking to deliver advanced data, video, and voice services wirelessly, simultaneously achieving the benefits of both IP and wireless technology. In addition, this powerful convergence of wireless and IP is revolutionizing surveillance services as well—making cost-effective new solutions available for users and providers of video surveillance.
