Wireless communication and mobile technologies are already well established in modern surveillance systems. Mobile-based client applications are commonly used to provide the basic access to camera video streams and other system resources. Camera site devices might connect to the system core by wireless links to address/overcome the environmental conditions. Finally, the surveillance systems themselves can be installed in portable environments such as busses or trains, which require wireless access for infrastructure and internet services, etc. However, we observe the growing popularity of mobile and wireless access solutions. The technology itself is evolving rapidly providing efficient transmission technology, feature-rich and powerful mobile and wireless devices. The users expect to have seamless access and tools where the functionality does not depend on access technologies or access devices. The same functionality is demanded from local client application and remote mobile browser. The aim of this paper is to explore access scenario where mobile and wireless access methods are used to provide enhanced client functionality. We analyze these scenarios, discuss the performance factors.
