John Jay School of Criminal Justice Deploys IP-Based Access Control System

DVTel Inc. recently announced that John Jay School for Criminal Justice employed the company's IP-based Longitude IPAC (IP access control) system to provide security for more than 20,000 students, faculty, and staff at three college buildings in New York City.

John Jay's primary reasons for installing Longitude IPAC were DVTel's reputation for IP-based access control and its network-centric solutions, which provide high reliability and scalability. The system's  ability to automatically load cardholders and assign access privileges to the student, faculty, and staff population via downloads from the university's registrar system was also a key selling point.

There are approximately 30 turnstiles and six ID badging stations at three different campus locations, providing access control for 20,000 students and staff. The school had originally installed an access control solution from another manufacturer, but needed to upgrade due to scalability problems. DVTel provided all data conversion from the original system, including photos and card information while utilizing the existing hardware to make the upgrade seamless and cost-effective.
