Harnessing the power of your Cisco network to enhance physical security software and hardware has never been easier. If you already have a Cisco network at your blue-chip company then utilising that network as a platform to deploy electronic access control, and to deliver easy, secure access to live and recorded video is a no-brainer. However, you’re going to need to a company which has the physical security knowhow as well as the networking expertise in order to ensure that this process is managed correctly.
That’s where Pointer come in.
