Is the Altronix eBridge Series IP over Coax Solution compatible with Endura 2.0 Systems?

Issue

Sarix cameras drop offline or will not connect to an Endura 2.0 system when connected to Atlronix eBridge Series (EOC) Products.

Product Line

Pelco Cameras, Pelco Video Management

Environment

Cause

Altronix eBridge Series EOC (Ethernet Over Coax) Products do not support Multicast Protocols.  Endura Network designs require proper implementation of Multicast Routing Protocols to operate at optimal performance as intended.  Refer to Lessons Learned Article LL#11693 which includes an Endura Network Design Guide link.

Resolution

Resource:  Cisco Multicast Protocols

Altronix eBridge (EOC) Products are not compatible with Endura 2.0 Systems

  1. Remove Altronix eBridge Series (EOC) product.  Replace with Pelco EthernetConnect EoC 
  2. Design the appropriate Network infrastructure with Network Switches that support Multicast Routing Protocols.
