Traditional access control and physical security solutions can often be stifling. The hardware is so bulky that it doesn’t fit in your small business environment. Maybe the system loses coverage in certain sections of the building—a case akin to the “Can you hear me now?” quandary. Such scenarios aren’t access control where you need it. It’s access control as determined by the service provider. You find yourself a square peg crammed into a round hole. When you don’t fit, what do you do? Going without an access control solution isn’t the answer. What’s needed is a flexible solution that provides the necessary coverage and control. Brivo Systems’ Cellular Network Router is one of those solutions. We recently updated the product to meet the need for extra network support. It features a proactive measure; we’ve upgraded the router to 3G communication in advance of companies like AT&T and Verizon sunsetting 2G. The router also boasts mobile broadband connectivity, meaning increased coverage—even in areas historically difficult to cover. We like to put it this way: “No Internet, no problem.” Because of that connectivity and underlying 3G frequency, we’re seeing the router used in environments ranging from airports to gated communities. The router is an all-in-one, plug-and-play unit. It’s designed to be taken out of its box, plugged in, and be up and running within a matter of minutes. Our router also features ongoing maintenance and support. You may plug it in, but we’ll take care of the rest. We monitor the access control system and release firmware upgrades and other updates. With us, you get not only better security and access control but also greater peace of mind. One of the biggest perks for our customers is that the router’s open platform. While it, of course, integrates seamlessly with Brivo controllers and Brivo OnAir, it works just as well with other third-party platforms and devices. It’s an important differentiator. With our router and other services, you can customize access control and security to your unique needs. Let’s pretend you operate a small, high-end restaurant. You have limited business hours in which wide coverage is needed. But you have many, many prep hours. Even if you’re only open for three to four hours in the evening, you need coverage for the staff that arrives early and stays late to prepare the fish, beef, and pastries. With Brivo’s Cellular Network Router and Brivo OnAir, you can easily manage access control and video surveillance coverage during high- and low-traffic periods. Access control isn’t only where you need it with Brivo Systems; it’s also when you need it. Want to learn more about the Cellular Network Router or other Brivo offerings? Contact us today!
