  • 1. IP Video Surveillance While IP multicast plays a key role in the transition of video surveillance technology from analog to IP-based, it can be difficult to design, deploy, troubleshoot and scale. IP multicast over Avaya Fabric Connect resolves these issues by providing high scalability, flexibility and ease of deployment. Video Surveillance – IP Multicast over Avaya Fabric Connect A fast growing market Already a critical component of the safety and security procedures for many organizations, video surveillance deployments are expected to grow at an IP Video Surveillance Network Readiness Checklist Scalability – How many surveillance cameras can your network support? annual rate of 24% through 2016 (IMS Research). In addition to providing realtime monitoring of personnel, assets and the physical environment, video surveillance supports law enforcement efforts such as those surrounding the Boston marathon bombings. Most IP multicast video surveillance solutions limit scaling to a few thousand streams which curbs wide deployment of multicast solutions. Because video surveillance is relied upon to record events such as prison breaks and security breaches, the network on which Unfortunately, many networks are not equipped to deal with modern IP video it runs must be able to scale to meet changing traffic demands. surveillance applications.

Security – How can you provide a secure infrastructure for video surveillance traffic? To ensure that surveillance traffic is isolated from other traffic, many organizations deploy a dedicated surveillance infrastructure. Most traditional LANs, however, do not deliver true end-to-end separation of traffic which makes such an 2 | A new standard in scalability, simplicity, availability and performance Over the past few months, Pelco, a pioneer in the video surveillance marketplace, has been trying to break the Avaya Fabric Connect solution. With an extensive global customer base, hundreds of thousands of successful installations and over 20 years of experience in video security, Pelco is one of the most respected vendors in the industry.
  • 3. Thoughts from the Experts at Pelco On Traditional Solutions Complexity: “The biggest pain of what I do as a multicast architect is the complexities of PIM. We have in my opinion a broken model. We’ve got Spanning Tree then a L3 routing protocol then PIM – when something breaks you have to wait for all of this to reconverge.” Re-Convergence “I have had 4000 active multicast flows on the network and I had 32 on a monitor wall. I disconnected one of the fibers and asked my executives then to point out where the video loss was. Traditionally in this environment that is going to lock our software up. We are going to a reconnect state and our software is going to struggle to catch up…..” Performance “In the event of a prison breakout, a guard might want to hit a button and populate a monitor wall with 256 video feeds simultaneously. .. When you hit 256 simultaneous register messages going back to the rendezvous point it’s extremely CPU intensive… On Avaya FabricConnect “As I am going through the configuration I must have said at least 15 times, this can’t be it. This can’t be all that I have to do to make this work. Once you configure the SPB core, you don’t have to touch it. It’s a simple 2 or 3 line command to modify this network. It’s a revolutionary change both in performance and in simplicity of deployment.” …what we saw was lightening fast convergence where you might have a little pixilation but no video frames lost.” “Multicast services reconverged faster than I could record it. …the interesting thing with Avaya … I never saw the CPU rise higher than 6%.” (Healthy) Skepticism …then I was shown the technology and I was blown away. “When I was initially contacted by Avaya my initial response was no. Then I was sent a whitepaper and it peaked my interest… It really is phenomenal.” Traditional IP multicast versus Avaya Fabric Connect Complex Simple • Multiple protocols (PIM over OSPF) - In typical multicast networks today, PIM must be enabled on all routers lobally and on all core interfaces and g local edge interfaces where multicast is required. • Easy to design - Single protocol (IS-IS) • Traffic routed through rendezevous point • Complex to operate and troubleshoot - Proprietary tools • Traffic takes direct route to destination • Easy to deploy and troubleshoot - Standards based • IEEE 802.1 ag extensions - Edge provisioning only • Single command configuration • No need to touch the core Slow Recovery Lightning-fast Recovery • Recovery takes seconds, even minutes • Sub-second recovery times (<200msec) protects applications • Key video may be lost and/or gaps in archived materials created • Video always available Limited Scale Massive Scaling • 100s of streams • Tens of thousands of streams supported • Most systems max out at 1-to-2 thousand Security Vulnerable Secure • Limited solutions offer end-to-end traffic separation - While MPLS can isolate traffic, its design, deployment, and trouble shooting is highly complex • Avaya Fabric Connect provides a totally private, closed network for multicast traffic (L2 and L3 VSN) that delivers end-to-end separation Learn More To learn more about the Avaya IP Video Surveillance solution, please contact your local Avaya representative. | 3
