OSN Provides Low Risk, Revenue Generating Opportunity for Central Stations
OSN enables security service providers to meet new market requirements driven by verified response, broadband adoption and limited integration of closed-circuit television (CCTV) and alarm systems. It provides an affordable, reliable, high-performance remote video solution that can deliver real-time security monitoring features to subscribers through a branded, Internet-based portal that is accessible via personal computer, personal digital assistant or cell phone.
"Most security industry experts agree that verifying an alarm signal by a monitoring central station will drastically reduce false dispatches. However, most central stations are heavily invested in PSTN technology, and lack the resources or experience to efficiently integrate new technologies with existing infrastructure," said Ed Mallen, CEO, OzVision. "OSN includes several features aimed at eliminating technological barriers to ensure seamless connectivity, including 'plug and play' functionality that reduces the time required to install video equipment and connect to the central station."
OSN facilitates the seamless delivery of a complete suite of video services over Internet Protocol-based networks and provides a "no risk" entry for central stations into the video services market, a largely untapped revenue source. As a result, central stations can apply OzVision's hosted service model to capture new customers quickly, at a low cost while leveraging current investments in technology infrastructure and automation software.
