The Cisco ® Physical Security Multiservices Platform offers you innovative choices for deploying and managing physical security services such as video surveillance, access control, and flexible incident response communications. It is comprised of a suite of two server models and includes a wide array of features in a single, easy-to-use, and easy-to-deploy component that offers you choices among the following security applications:

Video Surveillance provides network digital recording and playback. With optional built-in analog video encoder cards and Fibre Channel interfaces, the Cisco Physical Security Multiservices Platform 1-RU and 2-RU servers enables direct connectivity from analog cameras or for IP video directed from the network, and allows remote playback of the recordings over an IP network. This platform offers scalable and flexible options for replacing traditional analog or digital video recorders in a variety of video surveillance deployments. For other video surveillance platform options, see:

Physical Access Control provides electronic access control using the IP network to manage doors and locks. The solution consists of hardware and software products and is modular, scalable, and easy to install. The solution's management application, Cisco Physical Access Manager, comes installed on the Cisco Physical Security Multiservices Platform 1-RU appliance. Cisco Physical Access Manager is used to configure Cisco Physical Access Gateways and Modules, monitor activity, enroll users, and integrate with IT applications and data stores. For other physical access control platform options, see:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps9688/products_data_sheets_list.html

Cisco IP Interoperability and Collaboration System (IPICS) provides on-demand incident communications across multiple agencies, enabling new levels of interoperability and operational efficiencies for public safety agency and support personnel. Cisco IPICS Server Software can be installed on the Cisco Physical Security Multiservices Platform 1-RU and 2-RU servers, and integrates disparate push-to-talk systems with other voice systems for emergency personnel. For other Cisco IPICS platform options, see:

Cisco Physical Security Operations Manager provides a scalable command and control style operator console that unifies event management and operation of Video Surveillance Manager, Physical Access Manager, and IPICS. Physical Security Operations manager comes in both Enterprise and Lite versions. The Lite version can be installed on the Cisco Physical Security Multiservices Platform 1-RU and 2-RU servers. The Enterprise version can be installed only on the 2-RU server. For more information, see:
