leverage Verizon’s wireless network to
expand their security footprint without
the need for cables. Removing cabling
from the security surveillance equation
significantly reduces costs and deployment time, says Terry Dell, Verizon
PNW/Alaska region innovation specialist. “To use a cellular modem with
a video camera, it could take only days
to get it up and running versus running
cable, which could cost several thousand dollars and take several months to
deploy,” Dell explains.
As another benefit, cellular secu-
rity and surveillance is not dependent
on the delivery of power, so an outage
won’t stop the video feed. “Unlike most
hard-wired systems, if someone cuts
the power, your video cameras can still
be running,” Dell says. “With battery
power as a backup, the cameras contin-
ue to operate during an outage or loss of
Verizon also provides customers with
a level of objectivity when it comes to
responding to security-related events.
Technicians at the NMS Security op-
erations center aren’t emotionally en-
trenched in the unfolding events, Dell
says. So, for example, if a security cam-
era witnesses a national disaster or large
civic event, they can report the occur-
rence with a clear and impartial mind.
Dell says Verizon’s wireless video
surveillance is ideal for public safety,
military, educational, and agricultural
applications. So far, the company has
seen the solution implemented across
all major industries in Alaska.
