Source: Cisco Systems
Higher-education institutions are taking the next step to increase campus safety by converging their physical safety systems with Information Technology (IT) systems. When campus safety monitoring and communications systems are connected to campus wired and wireless IP networks, the safety systems can be centrally monitored and set up to automatically execute actions based on campus safety policies. This paper, intended for campus police, administrators, facilities personnel, and IT personnel, explains how the convergence of physical safety systems and campus wired and wireless networks can enhance campus safety.
