Video networks for mission-critical surveillance

August 2015 IT in Manufacturing

Moxa has introduced its new V-ON technology, which is designed to prevent video loss from mission-critical surveillance networks. Robust surveillance networks are an increasingly important aspect of public safety and critical security applications. To support non-stop video stream monitoring, V-ON technology overcomes layer 2 and layer 3 multicast limitations to recover from layer 2 video loss in under 50 ms, and to provide layer 3 routing redundancy of under 300 ms.

“Security events can happen in the blink of an eye, and video surveillance networks that fail to deliver key images in real time could delay response, resulting in disasters that endanger both people and property,” said Ray Hsu, product manager of Moxa’s industrial Ethernet infrastructure division.

To achieve non-stop video surveillance, Moxa’s V-ON network technology maximises IP surveillance network uptime. Combined with Moxa’s patented Turbo Ring/Turbo Chain protocols, V-ON technology optimises complex video streaming to implement layer 2 video recovery within 50 ms, and layer 3 routing recovery within 300 ms after a video network failure.

Video-always-on solution

V-ON can be implemented on a wide range of Moxa robust Ethernet switches by a simple firmware update. “As a matter of fact, video-always-on networking depends on V-ON’s optimised connectivity, device robustness, and management efficiency to achieve operational reliability, availability, and efficiency for mission-critical surveillance,” said Hsu.

“To facilitate fast network deployment and easy event tracking, Moxa offers MXstudio, a user-friendly network management suite that does NOT require IT skills,” he added. “By incorporating MXstudio with V-ON enabled switches, customers can complete configurations 10 times faster, and utilise the live-view topology and event playback functions to run intuitive surveillance network monitoring operations.”
