The ARCO Solution offers a low power, centrally controlled, security management system designed primarily for managing thousands of unmanned sites that make up a significant part of the asset base of any telco — typically from cell sites to street cabinets.
Intelligent Self-Powered Key/Lock
The system utilises a tamper-monitored, bolt—type door lock at each site, which requires no external power source. The lock is activated by power from an intelligent, fully-audited, universal smart key. Keys must be programmed – typically via a wireless smartphone/laptop connection – to give the keyholder specified access rights to each lock within a system. A full audit trail — a recording of which users have accessed any lock, and when – is maintained by the monitoring and management system, which also houses the keyholder database and is used to configure and distribute access rights. Keys and locks also retain a record of their previous 2000 events.
Consolidated Cloud-based Monitoring
The ARCO Platform is a web-based application that resides in either a central location or cloud and provides the collection point for all events from the S1000 Smart Controller. The software monitors security/access alarm, telemetry activity, data gathering from the doors connected to the controller located at each cell site, and prioritises events for multiple operator workstations.
Comprehensive Access Control
Interactive dashboards and graphical screens provide easy management and data consolidation showing the current and historical status of secure areas. There is the ability to drill down to view the current status and system configuration at any location, enabling timely management of alarms and proper escalation of emergencies. Details of the recorded history stored in the system can be used for analytics and performance enhancements.
