PACKAGES INCLUDE : A FULL COMPUTER SYSTEM (512 MEM, 80HD, KB, MOUSE, 17 MONITOR, CDRW
Due to the fact that Viewanywhere is accessible remotely and works directly across a LAN it uses very little communication or bandwidth. Viewanywhere carries a push LAN protocol and decreases pockets across the network.
If the communication Server is high ADSL, fractional T1 or full T1 Viewanywhere will utilized very little bandwidth and minimal LAN time.
Viewanywhere will not pull down the network, it is the remote monitoring pulls down the network. Since the remote / central monitoring network usage could be calculated as below.
Mpeg-4 frame size average = 1.6KByte / frame Channels * frame rate * 1.6KByte * 8bit = the network usage. I think 5 FPS is good enough to do central monitoring with many channels.
For example. 16CH * 5 FPS * 1.6KByte * 8 bit = 1024K bit = 1Mb
15 locations * 1Mb = 15Mb
15Mb * 130% (overhead) = 19.5 Mb
If they are using 100Mb network... It seems not a big problem on your network. Regarding the remote monitoring and the loss of 2% network usage will not create any impact on the network.
