A well-known NVR software vender in the worldwide automation industry wanted to build an IP surveillance system for a stadium. The main issue was the management of the network bandwidth, which needed to handle over 300 IP cameras as well as Ethernet RTUs for some areas. In the past, the customer used a traditional distributed Ethernet RTU solution with a polling architecture. However, this architecture would cause the Ethernet RTUs to occupy more network bandwidth, leading to high network traffic.
- Ethernet RTUs
- Low network bandwidth
- Easy integration with NVR software
An innovative RTU solution was provide with local intelligence that could be easily integrated with the IP surveillance system. Instead of relying on traditional serial and Ethernet I/Os, the client took advantage of intelligent RTU solutions with the following advanced functions:
