The telecommunications industry provides communication services through various means, including phone, internet, and television. It plays a significant role in connecting people and businesses worldwide.
However, the industry faces many security challenges.
Infrastructure and sites in the telecom industry are often jointly maintained by different operators and contractors. Therefore, how to effectively manage and track the related technicians and contractors who visit the site has become a major concern for most telecom companies.
Many organizations centralize the management of keys and locks to secure infrastructure and property. In an emergency, the maintenance staff must travel between the management center and the site. The telecom sites are often located in remote areas, making it impossible to respond to incidents in the first place.
Traceability of Responsibility
The telecom industry has a large number of employees. A traceable access control system is indispensable to avoid the exact person responsible cannot be found in case of an incident.
Through the software, managers can see who unlocked which lock at what time. The data is uploaded directly to the management center and collated into an audit report that will not be tampered with.
Expensive Maintenance Costs
Telecom companies have many sites, and employees need to carry a large number of keys when performing equipment maintenance, reducing work efficiency. Once the keys are lost, the locks can only be replaced, resulting in expensive long-term maintenance costs.
