ETSI releases specification for Energy Efficient IP Video Surveillance enabling further IoT interoperability
Jun 14, 2019
The specification was developed to enable an energy efficient and sustainable transition from legacy analogue video surveillance systems to IP video surveillance systems thanks to the transmission of IP data over coaxial cable infrastructures, while ensuring safe and reliable power delivery.
ETSI TS 105 176-2 implementation ensures interoperability between a set of communication devices such as IP cameras, IP switches, video intercom systems, displays or IP audio devices connected over a coaxial cable infrastructure to a receiver device such as a power over coax switch device. This specification provides the ability to extend a video surveillance coaxial network with additional IP cameras or devices without having to deploy new cables from the head end device to a new front-end device.
ETSI TS 105 176-2 is the first standard of this family. It enables the interoperable transmission between devices of both power and IP data over long distances of coaxial cable infrastructures, hence allowing a robust, manageable and interoperable infrastructure.
“The technology based on ETSI standards is already implemented by RATP on Line 14 of the Paris metro”, said Dominique Roche, ETSI TC ATTM Chairman and NGO eG4U Representative. “This video system increases safety of people in the metro and monitors access gate control for instance. The market needs were driven by users’ requests to replace legacy analog cameras with IP cameras, while minimizing the cost of such replacement, reducing the ecological impact of such transition, and providing a rich and high-quality solution.”
The ETSI specification relies on the HomePlug AV family of standards for data transmission, which is a robust, very stable and interoperable technology largely deployed globally.
