Monitoring and control of power systems, cooling and environmental parameters in data center, aim at a central monitoring of all elements of infrastructure, despite the different nature of all data and alarms. The architecture of monitoring and control system is analyzed in this paper taking into account the requirements for a centralized architecture. The bandwidth will be influenced more by monitoring cameras. The number of monitoring cameras, frame resolution, frame speed transmission and the level of compression, are taken into consideration in calculating the impact of video frames in the bandwidth.
