What is ONVIF?

Cambium Networks is a member of ONVIF which is an industry organization that promotes interoperability amongst suppliers of physical security products.

cnVision leverages these standards by integrating an ONVIF client on each hub and client.  With the ONVIF client, cnVision hubs and clients auto-detect and display information about ONVIF Conformant cameras as they are connected. WIth cnVision's stream detection capability, users can view camera feeds within the client GUI allowing rapid troubleshooting and fault isolation and confirming successful installations. 


The mission of ONVIF is to provide and promote standardized interfaces for effective interoperability of IP-based physical security products.

The cornerstones of ONVIF are:

  • Standardization of communication between IP-based physical security products
  • Interoperability regardless of brand
  • Openness to all companies and organizations

Founded in 2008 by Axis Communications, Bosch Security Systems and Sony Corporation, ONVIF has a robust member base on six continents. ONVIF membership is open to manufacturers, software developers, consultants, system integrators, end users and other interest groups that wish to participate in ONVIF activities.
