Smart Satellite Services tested for CCTV surveillance by market leader
In South Africa, security surveillance and CCTV solutions are critical to protecting business activities and premises. These CCTV solutions include on-site camera systems linked to central control room facilities for monitoring and incident response. Scheduled and unscheduled power outages (loadshedding) represent a serious challenge to the reliability of these 3G and LTE data links and are necessitating the search for an alternative, trusted option. Net-1/Lesaka is a leading provider of CCTV surveillance solutions for the financial sector. Net-1 had a challenge in that they urgently required a trusted data communication link for CCTV systems deployed at ATMs and other critical financial assets or locations.
