    What is a CPP and where you can find it for you Bosch IP camera?




    To guarantee high quality imaging through the entire range of products, Bosch Security Systems uses a Common Product Platform (CPP).

    CPP is a reference design that serves as a solid base for future cameras. Based on the same CPP, sub- or new products can be generated more easily by using a different sensor and/or a different housing.

    All IP products that share the same platform (CPP) are easily maintained, backward compatible over multiple generations and future proof due to the possibility of enhancing or adding new features via firmware updates that enable feature enhancements.


    Each product cannot only benefit from the features provided by the platform but can also advance its functionality.

    Other advantages:

    • easier integration with 3rd party security system components, such as VMS and recording solutions.
    • allows installers and integrators to use the same interface that supports the entire Bosch product portfolio.
    • new camera and software releases, regardless of the price segment, can be easily added to an existing security surveillance system.
    • it helps you to find the right version of firmware you need for your camera

    CPP & Firmware:

    All firmware releases for the various Common Product Platforms (CPP) for Bosch IP cameras and video encoders can be found on the Bosch Security and Safety Systems page in Download Area.
