As one of the
largest banks in South Africa, security is a top priority for FNB. When the
camera system at the bank’s Fairland building reached end of life, increasing
security risks and adding to operational costs, upgrading it became paramount.
FNB turned to Jasco Security and the latest version of the Bosch Video
Management System (VMS) to provide the solution.
The Bosch VMS
was selected as the product of choice for the upgrade. This system offers a
flexible IP security system architecture that is easily scalable and easy to
manage, supporting up to 2000 high definition and standard definition cameras
on a single system. After identifying the required solution, FNB went out on
tender to select a supplier that would meet all of their requirements. Jasco
was one of five shortlisted suppliers, and was eventually selected based on the
tender specifications provided, including Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) rating,
pricing and additional services and expertise. Jasco supplied and installed the
Bosch VMS over the course of a week in late 2013, with changeover conducted
over the weekend to minimise disruption. Jasco also provided integration
services with the access control system, and is offering on-going support and
maintenance for one year.
Bosch VMS solution has enabled FNB to leverage a number of benefits over and
above the requirement for reduced operational costs and maintenance. In
addition to enhanced security through improved reliability and greater storage
capacity, this system provides an element of future-proofing, as it will enable
FNB to take advantage of upcoming 4K UHD video technology,” says Shaun Bubb, New
Business Manager at Jasco Security.
