Falconer, New York based Jamestown Container Companies, a sustainable independent designer and manufacturer of custom packaging, reported that it is working with Spectrum Enterprise, a part of Charter Communications, Inc to deploy Managed Network Edge with cameras across all six of its facilities in Western New York and Cleveland, Ohio. The cameras will help to enhance on-site security and provide insights for employee training and safety around industrial machinery.
“We’re a family-owned business and our employees are fundamental to our success, both through the work they do for us directly and through their volunteer efforts in the communities where we operate,” said Michael Lennox, IT Director, Jamestown Container Companies. “Their safety and security are foremost. As our partner, Spectrum Enterprise helped us to design and implement a solution that strengthens safety and encourages operational improvements for enhancing both the employee and customer experience.”
Spectrum Enterprise Managed Network Edge with cameras is a fully managed, turnkey solution that includes design, installation, updates and support (including repair and replace), with no additional licenses or video management software required. Leveraging a Cisco Meraki platform, the solution offers a highly intuitive portal that enables custom views across multiple locations. Footage can be viewed easily and securely from any company site because of a highly reliable Spectrum Enterprise Fiber Internet Access (FIA) connection. Encrypted data and two-factor authentication keep the footage secure from unauthorized personnel. Each camera can be set-up to have different recording schedules, resolutions (up to 1080p), and footage retention timeframes. There is also the ability to view live streams without recording at all.
“Having real-time visibility into operations is essential for most businesses, but it is even more impactful when cameras enable proactive opportunities to improve safety and security,” said Rob Roache, Group Vice President, Enterprise Sales, Spectrum Enterprise. “It’s easy for companies to equip themselves with an integrated camera system that addresses their unique needs when Spectrum Enterprise is managing all of the technical aspects for them. At Jamestown Container Companies, our managed solution helps to free-up IT personnel and other employees who can provide customers with exceptional products and service.”
The Managed Network Edge with camera solution delivers insights into activities across locations through heat maps and motion capture – resulting in a better understanding of how different areas of the facility, both inside and outside, are being used at different times of day, allowing patterns to be easily identified. Video privacy bars can also be incorporated into the camera system to block any sensitive locations or information from being viewed.
Spectrum Enterprise has been providing network connectivity solutions for Jamestown Container Companies for over 10 years, including Fiber Internet Access and Ethernet Virtual Private LAN.
