Use Control Point Architecture to Automatically Detect, Locate, Track and Protect IT Assets
Most difficult to track within any enterprise are the valuable assets that are on the move. Using Axcess’ flexible control point architecture, you can easily detect and locate mobile assets within the facility. By employing Functional Linkage™, any asset can be assigned to an authorized owner or user to allow one to move freely throughout the enterprise with their assigned asset. However, if an asset is detected without its authorized owner, an alarm event occurs, immediately sending notification of an unauthorized asset movement.
Locating or tracking assets or devices that can be either static or in motion, such as wheelchairs, IV pumps, data center servers, or laptops in a corporation, is no easy task until now. You can now know instantly where these assets are at all times. The solution offered by Axcess provides a comprehensive resource for locating and tracking assets, whether on the move or sitting still.
How It Works
Each device has a wireless electronic property tag placed on it which uses radio frequency identification to automatically identify, locate and ascertain the proper handling of the asset. When a tagged data device, like a laptop, goes through the electronic checkpoint, the tags are activated on-demand and are assessed by the system.
The anti-tamper technology serves as a failsafe measure, providing wireless alerting upon unauthorized tag removal. The system offers the flexibility to automatically locate and track laptops and other assets between each of the floors as well as outside, as required.
Working independently or in concert with standard security alarm equipment, the system automatically identifies authorized custodians, can remotely lock an exit door if an unauthorized laptop attempts to pass through, and provides instant messages as alerts for all unauthorized removal. The Axcess Control Point architecture has been found to be more reliable than other local positioning methods using Wi-Fi systems or signal strength measurements. Its activation-based positioning can determine if an asset has left a secured area down to 1 foot of accuracy and can also determine its direction.
