Siemens Selected by Howard University for Security Solution


Howard University has selected Siemens Communications, Inc. as the provider of an integrated package of security management solutions. The package will include identity and access management systems along with physical access control and monitoring technologies.

The security solution will provide the university with a link between physical and IT access controls, as well as support the IT/security system with a service package that includes 24/7 maintenance of hardware and software systems.

“The strategy behind the convergence of IT and security technologies is to drive down costs while dramatically improving security,” says Benjamin Wells, director of Security Solutions at Siemens Communications, Inc.

With the system in place, the university can control and monitor all campus buildings from a single workstation. The campus will have digital video recorders, CCTV monitors, emergency-phone equipped duress stations and “smart card” readers at access points throughout the campus.
