Constructing reliable and flexible IP networks requires an understanding of infrastructure components and the interoperability of systems that run on them. This is especially the case when the technology is melded with fast-paced, dynamically changing video workflows.

However, creating an IP network is only part of making a system work reliably. Interoperability plays a huge role in integration, and anybody installing a system should consider this from the outset. Dedicated vendor-specific solutions can solve many of these problems and continue to build on the major benefits of scalability and redundancy in IP systems.
