A number of valuable fixed assets tend to be housed within enterprise buildings, including employees, infrastructure and hardware. Policies regarding security should be without compromise, while also meeting budget requirements.
As of late, the security industry has leveraged available technology updates to increase efficiency and contain costs. Enterprise solutions demand close attention to security to protect assets and allow for business as usual.
Network-enabled IP cameras have been a focused investment as they allow for integration into software packages that provide voice recognition, face detection and even uninterrupted recording. All of these activities are completed over traditional closed circuit cameras. To allow for voice recognition, enterprise solutions provide embedded microphones that capture voices and reduce the possibility of the fraudulent use of an ID card.
Just as it sounds, face detection ensures only those with authorized access are granted entry into protected areas. If a violation were to occur, the software is generally designed with the ability to identify the camera from which the image came, so security personnel can be dispatched to the right location. Uninterrupted recordings are conducted digitally, storing the data on the server.
Advanced enterprise solutions also allow for links between video for the creation of a continuous timeline to overcome disk limitations.
Security systems with e-mail alerts can also be built into IP cameras for enterprise solutions. Offices and commercial buildings can even operate without guards and visitors can gain access through video conferencing technology. If a security breach occurs, law enforcement officers are dispatched.
And because IP cameras can be connected with Power over Ethernet (PoE), power outlets are not required for operation.
All of these benefits are readily available in robust enterprise solutions, but for successful implementation, the physical infrastructure must be capable and stable. IP cameras rely on power and data transmissions, yet extra cabling needs are eliminated when PoE is used for power supply.
Still, monitoring and controlling technologies should be placed in a centralized and secure location, one that houses both security and facility management personnel to ensure efficient operation.
The technical aspects needed to support enterprise solutions that protect corporate assets are critical, demanding quality and accuracy in deployment and operation. Fortunately, Panduit offers a full range of solutions that address the management and monitoring needs of the enterprise. Plus, its DPoE Power Patch Panels can efficiently power IP cameras wherever needed.
As end-to-end turnkey systems, all the necessary components needed for vital network transmission are delivered.
Panduit works closely with technology and business partners to enable companies to take the necessary steps to assess, design, implement and manage the physical infrastructure and capture the full value of all technology and IT investments. By leveraging the company’s proven enterprise solutions, all corporate assets can be protected.
