IP cameras and MTBF figures

There is a lively discussion on one of the LinkedIn groups discussing HD network video where the question was posed asking why IP camera manufacturers rarely publish MTBF (Mean Time Before Failures) figures. These figures are commonly available in IT, but not in the security world.

In answer to this, one manufacturer (JVC) provides these figures freely and you can download them in the form of a PDF, linked below.

I will ask other manufacturers whether they are willing to provide such information too. We will publish any further information we receive on this subject on this blog as and when it becomes available. Keep an eye on this space if you are interested.
