The article discusses the reliability issues of the Internet Protocol (IP)-based video surveillance system. It explores the difference between an analog video surveillance system and the IP-based technology, and examines their respective advantages and disadvantages. However, it points out that despite the less reliability of the IP-based system compared with analog, the underlying significant factor of the latter was the design of its network infrastructure, which made it more functional.
