Published 2008; Posted September 2008


In today's global marketplace, businesses are becoming increasingly dispersed and mobile. More than ever, companies are looking to networking technology to bring their employees, customers, and business partners together - regardless of their location. Enterprise companies are increasingly turning to rich-media applications such as video to increase worker productivity by improving collaboration, communication, and training, while reducing overall costs.

To take full advantage of these video innovations, companies need to be sure that their campus network is ready to meet the demands video applications place on the infrastructure, and ensure a solid user experience.

Cisco has long been an industry leader in network technology, and is now developing and bringing to market many innovative video-related products. These products cross multiple functional boundaries such as real-time collaboration, surveillance, signage, streaming video, and more. Cisco's combined expertise in both video and network technology gives the company a unique advantage in delivering high-quality, business-class video solutions.

This paper introduces the major video technologies that are available today. It also provides some guidance concerning critical campus network foundation technologies required for the successful deployment of these video solutions.
