Campus Security System Project for Monterey Bay University

INX : 11 March, 2010  (Application Story)
Physical security system including video surveillance operations management to provide protection for students, staff and visitors to the California State University Monterey Bay Campus

INX has been awarded the initial project implementation of a campus wide safety and security system at California State University, Monterey Bay.

California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) is an accredited higher education institution and part of the twenty three campus California State University system. The California State University system contains almost 450,000 students across its campuses. CSUMB is unique in that its campus resides on 1,387 acres and is one mile from the shores of Monterey Bay, the largest marine sanctuary on the West Coast. CSUMB has been recognized as a technology leader. Smart classrooms, slick tablet PCs, and strong wireless networks are some of the technologies used to enhance the learning experience.

CSUMB President Dianne Harrison is also very forward thinking and understands the importance of leveraging technology to increase the safety of their students. CSUMB has deployed a campus wide security camera solution based on Cisco System's Video System Operation Manager (VSOM) in order to monitor the campus and access video footage in the event it's needed. The university has titled this campus wide security solution "The CSUMB Safety and Security System."

CSUMB selected INX to design and deploy the solution, which is built to run over the existing communication network on campus. It was imperative that the solution be built on an open architecture and be scalable. Since the solution is intended to increase safety, an equally important requirement is that the system be extremely reliable. CSUMB's main objective for the system is to provide the highest level of safety for students, faculty, staff and visitors. The system has already aided CSUMB police investigators in solving crimes committed on campus.

CSUMB chose INX for their proven ability to deploy this technology and for the extensive experience of the INX physical security team. CSUMB Police Chief Fred Hardee said, "With this new Safety and Security system in place we are well positioned to better protect our students, faculty, staff and visitors. The cohesive nature of our Safety and Security System allows us to be more connected than ever before. We are pleased to have the system operational and that we contracted a competent resource like INX."

Richard Reece, North California Regional Vice President INX, said, "We are glad to be involved in creating a safer environment at CSUMB. Their forward looking, proactive approach to safety is commendable."

The INX revenue from this project is expected to be approximately $454,000.
