An access control system (ACS) is a type of security that manages and controls who is allowed entrance to a facility or environment. It identifies persons that have access to a controlled device or facility based on the validity of their credentials.
A structured cabling system is a complete system of cabling and associated hardware, which provides a comprehensive telecommunications infrastructure.
This infrastructure serves a wide range of uses, such as to provide telephone service or transmit data through a computer network.
A video surveillance system monitors the behavior, activities, or other changing information, usually, of people from a distance by means of electronic equipment.
Scope: Prevention • Reaction • Detection • Intervention
A wireless network is a computer network that uses wireless data connections between network nodes. Wireless networking is a method by which homes, telecommunications networks and business installations avoid the costly process of introducing cables into a building, or as a connection between various equipment locations
A Emergency Responder Radio Communications System (ERRCS), also known as a Public Safety or First Responder DAS (Distributed Antenna System), has become a mandated in-building requirement for many municipalities around the country. This network essentially re-transmits Fire or Police radio frequencies from outside a building, where the signal is presumably stronger, into the building, where it usually
is weaker or non-existent.
A fiber-optic network is a computer-to-computer or computer-to-Internet network created using fiber-optic cables. These cables are made of thin strands of glass that transmit light. Computer information is converted into light pulses to send across the cables and is converted back into regular data when it reaches its destination.
A distributed antenna system, or DAS, is a network of spatially separated antenna nodes connected to a common source via a transport medium that provides wireless service within a geographic area or structure. DAS antenna elevations are generally at or below the clutter level and node installations are compact. A distributed antenna system may be deployed indoors or outdoors.
