Usage Scenario II:Two Layer Network with IP Surveillance Solution
In the following slides,
we will introduce the second usage scenario and talk about how to implement
and configure usage scenario 2 Auto Surveillance Network.
Usage Scenario 2 is a two layer switched network
with the Smart III switch as the core layer switch
and two unmanaged switches
as the access layer switches as shown in the diagram.
In addition, similiar to usage scenario 1,
we have an existing DHCP server, a VMS client, network cameras
and a NVR or VMS server.
Here we use the VMS Server.
The office network with user computers connects to one of the unmanaged switches.
This slide shows you the connection ports among the Smart III switch,
the unmanaged switches and all of the components.
Power on all three switches
and connect the unmanaged switch to the Smart III switch.
Connect D-Link network cameras to the unmanaged switch to the right
Connect the VMS client and the VMS server to the Smart III switch.
The DHCP server, which currently exists in the user・s network environment,
has always been connected to the Smart III switch and is properly configured
by the customer network administrator
Like usage scenario 1, you only need to enable the Auto Surveillance VLAN feature.
D-Link network cameras
are automatically added to Auto Surveillance VLAN with high priority.
To record and view videos from the network cameras,
we have to add the MAC address of the VMS server
to the Smart III switch Auto Surveillance VLAN Settings.
Follow the steps adding "User-defined MAC Settings"
we showed you in the usage scenario 1
If you want to view VMS server live video or do remote playback,
follow the same steps to add the MAC address of the VMS client to the Smart III
switch Auto Surveillance VLAN Settings.
After you finish the configuration,
both of the VMS server and the client will be recognized by the Smart III switch
and will be put in the Auto Surveillance VLAN.
So let's verify the configuration of the Auto Surveillance VLAN of the Smart III switch.
As in scenario 1, open your browser,
bring up the Smart III switch web management console
and log in to the main page using the default password "admin".
Skip the "Smart Wizard" and in the Smart III configuration console,
click "Configuration" in the left pane
and click "Auto Surveillance VLAN",
In the right pane, you can see that D-Link network cameras,
the VMS client and server have priority setting set to "High" by default
and the network cameras are recognized by the Smart III switch as
"D-Link Surveillance Device" off port 8,
"VMS server" off port 10
and "VMS client" off port 5
as shown in the "Auto Surveillance VLAN Summary" table.
In the above, we introduced the second Auto Surveillance VLAN usage scenario
and how you can implement and configure its network.
