Auto provisioning is the procedure of automatically adding and configuring a camera. Auto provisioning involves the automatic creation of a location, entity, and camera profile, reserving an IP address for the camera using a DHCP server, and receiving and transmitting camera streams to the Mediaserver. The stages of auto provisioning can be tracked through the VMS administrator interface (see «Provisioning»).
A mandatory requirement for applying auto provisioning is the use of the customer addressing system (CAS) or similar systems.
For more information about auto provisioning, refer to the «Auto-Provisioning Algorithm and Methods».
There are also additional options for adding cameras and video streams:
Manually adding video streams during automatic camera addition (see «Automatic camera addition and manual video stream setup»)
Manually adding a camera and video streams (see «Manual camera and video stream addition»)
A DHCP server that provides IP address assignment and control functionality to cameras within the VMS
A management center that orchestrates all components of the video surveillance system, ensures operational control, and interacts with other products of the VSaaS platform
A high-performance server for processing video, audio, and data information, either as a standalone product or as part of the VSaaS platform. It receives video streams and data from cameras and devices, processes them, records them in the archive, and delivers them to users in selected formats
Central Addressing System
Software responsible for collecting information on the use of telecommunication services, tariffing, issuing invoices to subscribers, and processing payments
Customer systems that manage contractual relationships with users of the services
Equipment Control System
A system that controls the lifecycle of the customer's network equipment (cameras), including monitoring its movement and status
