City Center Monitoring Solutions
City Center monitoring, often referred to as urban monitoring, is one of the most demanding applications of Video over IP.
Usually incorporating metropolitan-wifi wireless networks carrying hundreds of fixed and PTZ cameras, Bosch customers, including police departments, use Automatic Network Replenishment to protect against temporary network interruptions and distribute the storage of video across the entire city rather than overwhelm the WAN by recording centrally.
