Estimate disk space and bandwidth usage for your Milestone XProtect® installation by filling out the fields below to the best of your ability.
GB: Fill in the required disk size in gigabytes (GB).
Images/camera per day: Fill in the total number of images stored per camera per day. This figure, plus a small overhead, should be used when setting up the database storage parameters in the XProtect software.
Mb/s: Fill in the total bandwidth in Megabits per second (Mb/s) used on the network.
As a rule of thumb, a 10Mbit/s Ethernet adapter is capable of handling a maximum of 5 Mbit/s, while a 100Mbit/s Ethernet adapter can handle about 50 Mbit/s (simplex mode).
