Department of Corrections | Prison System

The Challenge

Monitoring and controlling the prison environment is a paramount concern for wardens and municipal executives. One of the nation’s largest prison systems had until recently relied on an aged, semi-functional collection of security cameras. How could this public agency efficiently install state-of-the-art equipment and offer much-improved security for everyone involved?

Our Approach

Coranet leveraged strong partner relationships and a deep understanding of our client’s complex environment to help install over 10,000 security cameras in a three month period. Working as an Axis Communications Gold Partner and with our distributor Anixter, together we supported large waves of equipment roll outs in quick succession. The technology solution allowed the client to significantly enhance their surveillance capabilities, which included a Follow Me feature to detect and follow moving objects and facial recognition capabilities that link to several ID databases.

The Results

Rapid, Large-Scale Installations – Up to 7,000 cameras in a Single Month

Working with our partners and the client, we secured and installed equipment in as little as a few days. As a result of our efforts, Axis Communications named Coranet Corp. its Corrections Market Partner of the Year for 2016.

The agency benefitted by:

  • Detection of assaults that old cameras couldn’t see
  • Better monitoring of penal facilities through a secure central network
  • Saving the municipality over $500,000 vs. alternatives
  • Bandwidth and storage requirements 50% less than comparable solutions
