The foundation of a successful municipal wide IP surveillance system is the design and deployment of the network infrastructure.  Assuming no single-point of failure, which is inherent in peer-to-peer architecture, the results will produce a system with high uptime and availability, minimal latency, scalability, and resource sharing.

Security     Detect employs the highest security standard, ensuring that video data can transport and be accessed using the latest security protocols, utilizing hardened passwords along with restricted physical and network access

Reliability     The reliability of the peer-to-peer Detect Surveillance solution offers significant uptime compared to traditional client-server solutions.

Unification     Municipal surveillance is often comprised of isolated efforts to cover key areas. DETECT can often combine disparate surveillance systems to maximize previous investments, unified in a common user interface.

Scalability     From the scalable peer-to-peer architecture to configuration management software tools and experience, we can expand the capabilities of your municipal surveillance system while maintaining its mission essential status.

Standards Based     DETECT runs on a standards-based Windows software platform designed to operate on Leverage’s Patented Peer-to-Peer Surveillance Architecture. The features and functionality of DETECT VMS specifically address municipal surveillance requirements.

Support     Maintenance and support are critical to the long-term success of any surveillance network, especially those which are critical to public safety initiatives. When something does come up, we are able to quickly assess and resolve it with our remote and onsite support capabilities.

New Technologies     Foundationally, the Detect P2P solution presents an innovative path to implement new technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms, which help identify persons and property for quick notifications.

What are the unique aspects of Video Surveillance networks?

Unlike traditional data networks, surveillance video networks support consistent data transmission with a fluctuating load yet still have an expectation of high availability and reliability.

Traditional data networks support “burst traffic” in which many transceivers send data across the network in short, momentary periods. Under these conditions, bandwidth demand is very predictable, rarely does network load ever come close to actual network capacity. As such, it is a common practice for network engineers and service providers to safely “oversubscribe” a network – banking on the fact that even during peak usage times, the “bursty” nature of data network traffic will never truly exceed the actual available bandwidth. In such an environment, it is not uncommon for short network outages to go undetected by both users and administrators. Wireless link failures, device reboots, and network congestion may often manifest and “self-heal” before anyone notices the issue even exists. However, in a network supporting Video Surveillance operations – link failures, network congestion, and device malfunction will not only result in the loss of forensic video, it noticeably inhibits VSS operators from successfully completing mission critical duties related to proactive surveillance monitoring.
