|Year 2011 - Wireless Bridging and Video Transmission|
The project for Calendar Year 2011 has 2 parts- wireless bridging and video transmission. Arun Vejendla, a 4th year student for Bachelor of Information Technology, undertakes this project. Edmond Chan, who holds a master degree in IT from the same university, is the supervisor.
b) Investigation of the impact of video on data transmission on a local area network to establish some performance specifications. Refer to Cisco MediaNet. Our company has been involved in video for surveillance use. One camera typically requires 3Mbps of bandwidth. Suppose the surveillance system has 30, 60 and 90 cameras respectively, the video will have very substantial impact on any 100Mbps local area network. The student is expected to provide guidelines to system administrators on how the video traffic should be managed. Cisco MediaNet has special and proprietary firmware for managing video in data networks. The student is expected to learn about MediaNet and recommend if we can use standard network switches to achieve the same purposes.
