The company implements SCATI video surveillance system in order to manage the security of its headquarters and other buildings all around the country
Telefonica is a Spanish telecommunications company that provides service and support to more than 322 million customers in 21 countries, Mexico among them. The goal of the company is to facilitate communication between people, providing the most secure and advance technology in the market.
With this philosophy, the security department chooses to establish a comprehensive video surveillance platform, able to guarantee permanent monitoring, with agile and efficient management from the control center; furthermore, an extended storage solution facilitates the analysis and the delivery of the information with quality in the shortest time possible.
The solution implemented by SCATI in the headquarters of Telefonica- Movistar in Mexico DF includes more than 200 recording platforms, located in different buildings all around the country. Its main goal is to develop a powerful video surveillance network with more than 3,000 cameras connected. This facility is managed with the SCATI tools: SCATI WACTHER, SCATI ROUND and SCATI WALL. They are all managed from Telefonica’s control center. The SCATI VISION recording platforms offer high availability and fault redundancy, and also a new point of view to mass storage needs with high-capacity and performance.
This way, the management of the recording platforms is carried out through SCATI WATCHER, a solution that enables the operator to cover all possible needs such as viewing, equipment set-up, alarm management, advanced searches, map management, setting-up groups of devices etc.
In the control center it also included a solution for professional monitoring of a large number of cameras. With SCATI WALL software the operator is able to implement scenarios and camera sequence settings, to operate PTZ cameras, to identify individuals thanks to the digital zoom, etc.
These solutions help to enhance the security level of the company, reducing risks and achieving savings in the control of losses. It also enables the company to fulfil diverse requirements with regards to storage capacity and quality of the recording systems. Thanks to the use of SCATI’s platform, the company made a great leap in video surveillance management, as the operator has quick access to every equipment. It also gives the possibility to generate self-maintenance routines, that make possible a permanent monitoring, and therefore it is possible to program maintenance periods and to prevent errors thanks to automatic alerts.
The combination of the different security elements needed to guarantee the comprehensive protection of the corporate buildings enables the availability of high-quality and high-resolution images, in case something happens. SCATI video surveillance solution offers high-availability, data redundancy in case one disk fails and automatic failover capabilities.
It is a security platform that enables the security department of the company to have an integrated solution that can be handled by a control center – a fully scalable solution that could support the development of the security facility as the corporative building needs change. The integral management of all the security elements not only facilitates growth and easy adaptation to future needs, it also means savings in costs and therefore a profitable solution.
With this system, able to manage and monitor the video surveillance recording systems, the company guarantees the protection of the different buildings where thousands of people work every day, not only employees but also clients and visitors.
