does CCTV system consume Internet Bandwidth ?

Specs: Windows 64
recently we have updated our 10 Cameras CCTV System expanding the NVR to 32 Channels and adding 12 more new cameras . Since We did that I noticed That our Speed is drooped form usually 90 to 100 Mbps to not more than 5 Mbps , and When Testing the ISP Router Directly , we are receiving the full speed , that means something is really sucking out the Bandwidth. any suggestions please ?

Check bandwidth use and storage of IP cams:

As significant parameter is the frame rate per camera.

If you have a robust dual band router you can set the cameras on 2.4Ghz band and all other devices on 5Ghz.

thanks for your response Sluc

the website is giving me total of 122 Mpbs needed for my 22 cameras , and by the

way i'm not accessing remotely , the camera and the NVR are in the same LAN , No

wireless cameras they are all wired ....

Why Something Connected through the LAN Is consuming Internet Bandwidth ??!!

I Just Can't Accept it !!!

Your post is a little confusing.

You state above, "and by the way i'm not accessing remotely" and then you ask, "Why Something Connected through the LAN Is consuming Internet Bandwidth ??!!" but you haven't stated clearly where the bandwidth issue is.

Is the problem LAN bandwidth, or internet bandwidth? What is the bandwidth rating of our LAN? Of your internet connection?

We can't help you without proper information. I suspect your issue is LAN bandwidth but can't be sure from your posts so please clarify.

Let it suffice to say for now that video is bandwidth intense. Increase the amount of video on your network and you will see issues like you're experiencing. There are ways to improve performance but without knowing your bandwidth rating for your LAN and internet, and where exactly the issue is, I won't be able to do anything further to aid you.

How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

If you are able to turn off the CCTV briefly then you could check your speed to see if they are the culprit.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"When Testing the ISP Router Directly" ... Any brand/model? How did you test the router?
All the cameras are wired to an Ethernet switch? Or how?
The more details of your network connections the better...

Thank you sluc , curt , derek , I really appreciate your quick

response , My issue is solved , turn out that I was sharing 100 MB/s port with the NVR ,

and because may CCTV estimated LAN bandwidth is 100 MB/s and My

connection speed Is 100 Mbps My internet speed was affected , so after

the upgrading the port and set it to 1 GB/s , every thing was fine , even

the video streaming is optimized.

Thanks again guys, you are the best ^^
