I need some suggestions and feedback in general on information sources I can use to educate myself on tools to use in helping end users on their networks. MOst of this deals with the security industry, and setting up camera's and dvr's to existing networks or creating and building new networks for security devices that would tie into their other networks.
I already use www.portward.com
to help my customer out on port forwarding.
Any tools or how to's on measuring available bandwidth on an existing network?
What about the amount of bandwidth network camera's, such as www.acti.com
, use up and if will slow down their networks.
Design help - how would you go about dealing with a camera, for instance, that was 500 meters away from the Network switch, isnt the standard length 100meters for ethernet run length??
Any other information dealing with IT and the security industry would be greatly appreciated. I work for a distributor, we deal with installation companies (ADT for instance) - more and more these days equipment is being put on the network for remote access, and in the future it looks like everything will be going network and I want to get some additional knowledge.
