Brugge Nationaal

One of the largest network security projects in Europe

When ISM was recommended to A&E Security in Belgium by two of our partners, Keri Systems and Fast, what followed was a meeting of like minds. The team at A&E Security were looking for a solution that was powerful enough to accommodate 60 remote sites, each one a government building, into one central monitoring station.

Their core needs were:

  • Complete system reliability
  • The ability to network 60 plus sites
  • The flexibility to include more sites on an ‘as needed’ basis
  • Ease-of-use for the operator. On alarm activation, the operator would have to be automatically presented with contingency plans directing them to specific actions

After researching the marketplace and without going to tender, A&E Security awarded the project to ISM. Stephen Smith, Director at ISM said “What followed was a city wide project that encompassed monitoring and controlling CCTV, fire alarm, intruder alarm, access control and NVR systems in over 50 government buildings throughout Brugge. Systems were connected to a private control room operated by A&E Security. This was a really enjoyable project where we were involved in system design from the very start of the design process. We also delivered exceptional value for money. We’ve also established a first because this project is now regarded as being one of the largest network security projects in Europe.”
