Orange County Deploys NLSS Gateway from Next Level Security Systems

Next Level Security Systems, a developer of a new breed of unified, networked security solutions, today announces Orange County, Fla., has deployed the NLSS Gateway as a unified management platform for a security upgrade that will incorporate multiple public safety sites.

Orange County, Fla., is a dynamic and growing municipality with a 2010 population of 1,145,956. A popular tourist and business destination, Orange County is home to Walt Disney World Resorts, Universal Studios Orlando, Sea World and the Orange County Convention Center. County officials began searching for a security platform to help manage disparate systems in facilities throughout the county, including the Orange County Courthouse. Orange County also sought to leverage an IP-based system to streamline communication, reduce complex integration and have the option to remotely manage its security infrastructure remotely.

"Orange County is focused on providing the highest level of security to our residents, employees and visitors. We look to leverage technology that helps us deliver the right information, to the right people, at the right time." said Peter Miller, Chief Security Officer, Orange County. "Analytics allow us to provide more security, with less staffing, saving money. We strive to provide low cost solutions that can run on low cost maintenance with high quality returns."

Orange County is leveraging the NLSS Gateway to capture video surveillance, run analytics and manage access control at county cell towers, the courthouse and other facilities. The county also plans to expand use of the system to its correctional facilities in the near future. Information from the video and access systems is immediately correlated through the integrated appliance approach, providing users with a complete view of the overall system. Video analytics, built-in to the NLSS Gateway at no additional cost, enable the county's security and IT teams to quickly identify potential security incidents, while Next Level Remote Management Services (RMS) provides users with remote access and management of the system from any Web-enabled device. Overall, the system will manage a network of hybrid analog and IP cameras, including Arecont Vision megapixel cameras. Captured video is stored on an EMC storage platform.

"Growing municipalities such as Orange County need security solutions that are flexible and scalable, and the NLSS Gateway enables the county to quickly and easily expand the security infrastructure as its risk profile evolves," said Peter Jankowski, Chairman and CEO, Next Level Security Systems. "Furthermore, the integrated appliance approach provides access to the entire security system, including integrated video and access control, from a single user interface. When information from these systems is immediately correlated, security teams are provided with the data needed to make informed decisions to best enhance security and limit potential incidents."
