The Request

The design and building of a network security infrastructure for the continuous monitoring of the Fort McClellan CDP campus.

The Solution

The solution consisted of the implementation of a video surveillance security platform at their Fort McCellan Campus. The platform  was comprised of the implementation of outside plant fiber optics, inside cabling, video security servers, redundant power management, perimeter campus, internal building, roof mounted, as well as, egress/ingress monitoring capabilities. We partnered with the security division of Panasonic Corporation in the delivery of a comprehensive security architecture for the monitoring and securing of the complete CDP Campus.
