Industrial Video Networking in SCADA
How to add High Bandwidth IP devices to your Plant, without killing your network


Supervisory Control and Data Aquistion (SCADA) systems have traditionally not been highly demanding on Network bandwidth. Where most SCADA system networks are tasked with handling handfuls of register data from PLCs and HMis , discrete I/O, and alarms in real-time, the demand for network bandwidth has tradionally been low. With the IP Convergence of IP Cameras, VoIP phones, and Plant Floor Web applications, the selection of these products and the overall network design are critical for the proper management of Network Bandwidth.

Covered will be Network Centric Bandwidth Management methods such as Unicast , Multicast , POS/QOS, VLAN, and Layer 3 Routing. A primer on IP Video technologies and acronyms will be given. We will explore Device Centric Bandwidth Management methods such as video compression (H.264 vs MPEG), and new technologies and standards such as Dynastream , CBR (Constant Bit Rate), and ONVif™ . A live video camera demonstration of how these parameters can affect performance on a plant network.
