Problem Being Addressed
As Securiteam began their discovery and design process, there were two major issues that need to be accounted for:
The Approach Taken
Having used the system for over 2 years, the client is extrememly pleased with how the initial deployment has exceeded their original requirements and expectations.
The scalability of the overall solution has ensured that further deployment can proceeed without an additional investment in infrastructure or software. Additionally, the database, along with permissions and allowances, can be managed remotely at the corporation headquarters.
Finally, the infrastructure will enable rollout of similar design solutions at other port locations within the area and nationwide. As a person is entered into the system, they can be granted access at any site within the network. Another benefit for the end user is that the server is eligible for firmware upgrades when improved technology is available for distribution, ensuring that their technology is never out of date.
Finally, we were able to pass along to the custiomer the lower installation costs and economies of scale available with an IP based solution. As a result, less of their investment dollar went toward labor costs and expendables such as wire and hardware associated with older, less technologically advanced, analog systems and more was invested in the flexibility of the technology.
