MILAN, Italy – A Technological Hub in the Heart of Milan. More than a control room, but a technological hub used both for security monitoring and as a showroom in the heart of Milan: this is the Secursat Security Operation Center (SOC), an innovative facility developed in partnership with Intermark Sistemi.
Secursat was founded as an outsourcing of the banking sector to manage traditional security systems through the network, not only for the financial sector but also for retail, industrial and real estate. However, talking about security means managing risks––monitoring thousands of sites and managing big data from installations around the world to ensure the protection of jobs, buildings and the general assets of Secursat customers.
The complexity of the subject required an uncompromising technological setup that balanced functionality, performance, reliability and ergonomics. The Secursat SOC is certified in accordance with the European Standard EN 50518, which regulates the structural, performance and organizational aspects of an Operations Center.
“We have imagined an open environment without limits or borders to better represent our openness to new technologies and new risk scenarios, remaining loyal to the values that have always guided us, those of an ethical and sustainable business,” said Giuseppe Calabrese, CEO of Secursat.
The Challenge for Intermark Sistemi
The challenge faced by Intermark Sistemi was as demanding as it was fascinating, and the selection process resulted in the best brands in the control room sector: RDI for the operator consoles, VUWALL for the management of the room’s video walls, AMX for the centralized control based on touch panels and ALFATRON (now JOSAWA) for the distribution of signals, based upon both copper and fiber cables.
“We have found in Secursat a unique partner in the control room vertical and we have provided the best technological solutions on the market, in order to build an innovative control room model,” said Fabio Concezzi, CEO of Intermark Sistemi.
AMX Control Touch Panels
To complete the equipment of the room, AMX touch panels were a natural choice. The 10-inch, in-table version is always ready to change the layouts of the video wall or activate any functions throughout the entire room. The user interface allows for intuitive and streamlined operations, offering the necessary commands within the first page of the module while leaving less common functions to secondary pages. The NX-1200 controller, the smallest in the AMX series, has enough power to handle all room equipment and to automate key functions.
AMX NX-1200: NetLinx NX Control Unit. Supports IPV6 and 802.1x standards, HTTP, HTTPS, Telnet, FTP protocols; real-time diagnostics. Processor speed: 1600 MIPS. AMX MT-1002: Modero 10” G5 series horizontal touch panel. G5 graphics with Quad Core processor. IPS technology for crystal-clear images and ±89° side visibility. Multitouch capacitive 3 points.
