Cisco LAN Video


DTS has approximately 3000 IP Phones with video capability: DWS and DHS have purchased the majority of these IP (Internet Protocol) phones within the Executive Branch.

This document outlines the implementation of IP Phone video on the Local Area Network (LAN).

LAN Application

DTS enables video on IP Phones via campus LANs where the IP Phones reside.  A campus LAN refers to co-located buildings served by one wide area network connection.  IP Phones use video on the same LAN, which typically means the same campus.  The LAN consists of networking switches that by definition have abundant bandwidth (almost unlimited), so there is little risk of using video on the LAN.

IP video service will only be turned on for specific site locations and be used for communication of people at that site only and not for communication between remote offices connected by wide area network circuits.

Risks and Mitigations

On larger LAN campuses where multiple switches are connected by trunks and/or channel groups, there is a risk that a connecting trunk may have traffic congestion with the addition of video traffic.  This risk can be easily mitigated by turning on Quality of Service (QoS) on the trunk interfaces or switch ports of the channel groups.  The risk is low, so implementation of QoS on the switches can be either proactive or retroactive.  Retroactive, meaning if there is a problem, Network Operations can quickly add QoS on the trunks.

  • Agencies are not required to supply a list of each individual user to have the IP video traffic enabled on the local area network.
  • Agencies can submit a list of locations where they would like the service enabled. Video traffic will be confined to each specific site so communication via video between sites will not be enabled.
