Security Center

If your Security Desk workstation is on the Federation™ host network and cannot receive video directly from the federated system, use this network configuration.

IMPORTANT: The following scenario explains one possible network configuration for Security Center Federation™. Your requirements might differ depending on the number of servers you have, your network specifications, and how you route video.

For more information, see your network administrator or contact Genetec™ Technical Support.

Assumptions about your setup

  • The Federation™ host is federating one remote system on a different network.
  • You are logged on to the Directory of the Federation™ host from a Security Desk workstation on the same network.
  • The Media Router and redirector on the federated system are not directly accessible from your Security Desk workstation, so you are receiving video from the redirector on the Federation™ host. You must ensure that the Media Routers and redirectors from both sites can communicate with each other.
  • No public IPs are required.

Architecture overview

Your system setup looks like this:
