Introducing an IP surveillance system at OJSC Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works
The Cisco Video Surveillance Manager (VSM) hardware and software suite deployed on Cisco Multi Service Platform (MSP) video servers with enhanced redundancy, has been used as the sub-system core. All of the software components of Cisco’s video surveillance system have been employed as part of the Cisco VSM software solution: Media Server, Operations Manager and Virtual Matrix.
- Designing a video surveillance system based on Cisco equipment.
- Installing the video surveillance system.
- Integrating the video surveillance sub-system into the overall accounting system has allowed synchronizing videos that indicate the key events in the process of moving ferro-alloys; this has ensured the appropriate 24/7 video surveillance over the storage facility.
Implementing this project has addressed the challenges as follows: the appropriate 24/7 surveillance over the storage and movement of expensive raw materials has been provided; - the scalability and versatility of the system have been ensured; - to build the surveillance system, the existing IP network has been used, which has minimized additional mounting work associated with laying cables; - integration with the production accounting system has been ensured.
