Installation of a flexible Milestone IPCCTV System at a large pharmaceutical production campus.
Following a number of quotations from other installation companies, our client was unsure of the technical methods being proposed. Reliability, flexibility, customisation, and an Open Platform was key.
Being within a market sector of $72Billion, strictly monitored by various government regulators both within the UK and USA, product selection was key. All equipment installed had to be excluded from the US Secure Networks Act. A challenge for any systems designer and integrator.
We provided third party consultation for the existing proposals free of charge to the client with a view to explore if there was a less disruptive method of installation for the campus wide system.
Our in-house Milestone Certified Design Engineer and Integration Technician was despatched to site for a technical review of the existing analogue system.
We found that by utilising some of the latest VDSL technology, we were able to maintain the existing infrastructure and incorporate this into a new cutting edge system.
By maintaining this infrastructure, this allowed a significant portion of the budget to be diverted into additional CCTV rather than just replacing the existing, adding exceptional value to our proposals.
Our chosen Platform, Milestone, has grown from Milestone Express, capable of supporting up to 48 cameras, to Milestone Corporate capable of Unlimited Cameras.
Incorporating Milestone ANPR Technology allows traffic access to the site, with over 2000 registered vehicle identifiers, along with a fully customisable Video Wall within the Campus Security Suite.
This installation was built from the ground up to always be expanded, and always be capable of performing in the most challenging of environments.
Utilising Milestone allowed us the flexibility to integrate with other systems and provide a truly customised system.
What the Client has to say…
“As a Large pharmaceutical production facility we needed a bespoke and reliable CCTV system, designed and installed to the highest specification. We reached out to SDC who worked with us, exceeding our expectations and delivering every task with efficiency. With the fluid support of the team from SDC we maintain, expand and improve on our security system continually and look forwards to a working relationship long into the future.”
