E-Plus, a multinational telecom and one of the top three mobile operators in Germany, was in a situation similar to that faced by many businesses: it needed to update the security and video surveillance systems at the company's data center.
The facility was guarded by a patchwork of analog cameras that were located on different networks. E-Plus needed to transform a scattered arrangement of cameras into a modern, integrated system with support for future expansion, hardware additions, and new instruments and functions.
But new challenges required surveillance with higher resolution and greater support for integration, as a part of a flexible integrated security system with support for rapid, situation-dependent configuration changes.
The client's choice went to the Axxon Intellect Enterprise platform, developed by AxxonSoft. Axxon Intellect is video management software with a modular architecture, allowing creation of integrated security systems of any level of complexity.
The client gets a system with a fine-tuned range of functions at minimal cost. By trimming unnecessary bells and whistles, the total cost of ownership decreases as well. Thus the end client's decision was the result of deliberation and a great deal of research. Besides the obvious advantages, Intellect had several other factors in its favor:
AxxonSoft and EFB-Elektronik, a trusted German partner of the company, worked closely with the end client to roll out the new system at the site. After the main works were already completed, more tools were added to the system for improved operation and management (among other things, configuration of monitor layouts was changed).
The E-Plus data center became home to a video surveillance system based on the Axxon Intellect Enterprise PSIM platform and Brickcom HD cameras. The end client was delighted with the image quality provided by the cameras, as well as the flexible configuration of the cameras and their deep integration with Intellect, which made the hardware/software combination the near-perfect solution for the site.
