Cisco Gets Physical

March 31, 2010 - 0 Comments

No, we’re not spending more time (or in my case – any time) at the gym.  Cisco’s Physical Security business is booming.  As the market continues to transition from legacy systems to networked IP-based systems and solutions, Cisco is clearly in a unique position and our recent customer successes validate it.  Some recent customer wins include:

  • The City of Joilet in Illinois is using Cisco’s IP-based video surveillance solutions alongside legacy analog equipment as a cost-effective way to increase the sophistication of its crime prevention effort, minimize management of overhead and increase situational awareness in problematic areas.
  • Council Rock School District in Pennsylvania is creating a safe environment for its students by leveraging its existing IP network to deploy both Cisco video surveillance and access control throughout 16 schools; across 72 square miles.
  • The City of Canoas, Brazil; San Luis Potosi City, Mexico; Moss Point School District; Harrisonville School District; and LOTT Alliance Water Treatment Plant, are among other public sector institutions benefiting from the Cisco Connected Physical Security portfolio.

Check out the short video below on how Cisco worked with Elon University to improve safety on campus.

In addition to the customer wins, we recently announced some enhancements to our video surveillance, access control and incident response solutions. Check out the video from Craig Cotton below for more information.
