CI along with NIC Partners and Cisco Systems deploy a fully integrated physical security solution.

Safety on any college campus is one of the most important factors that parents and students evaluate when choosing a higher education institution. From its inception, CI has placed a high value on campus safety, and has an excellent safety record. However, CI’s video surveillance and access control solutions were “home-made,” utilizing analog surveillance solutions that were not integrated and access control mechanisms that were outdated. When incidents occurred at the campus, security went through an enormous effort to locate footage, review video and determine the circumstances of the incident. Many times, information was simply unavailable or of poor quality.

CI collaborated with NIC Partners and Cisco Systems to deploy a fully integrated physical security solution. NIC Partners acted as the single-point-of-contact for the implementation which included a team of specialists and a suite of product solutions to create a fully integrated system, all running over their existing IP infrastructure. Among the products included were Cisco Systems Access Control and Video Surveillance solutions and Cisco Systems Unified Communications systems (IP Telephony).

The solution has created a proactive approach to managing physical security for the campus. When access control is challenged the University can immediately see video near the breach, as well as notify them via IP phone, a web browser, a cell phone or in any custom way desired by campus staff.
