UXC Connect has announced that it has secured a contract to provide a converged IP surveillance and security solution to a major liquid natural gas (LNG) project located in Western Australia. The initial contract worth $4.1 million, supports UXC Connect’s entry into the IP Video Surveillance Sector and the decision to grow its West Australian team considerably over the last 12 months, continuing its trend of growth and providing world class solutions to the mining, oil and gas industries.
UXC Connect has begun the delivery and roll-out of the solution to the remote site which will house up to 4,300 construction workers. The solution consists of IP CCTV, Public Address & General Alarm and Access Control infrastructure being installed in external and internal areas throughout the campsite including cafeterias, laundries, communal areas and 14 other facilities.
The fully architected solution will use industry leading technology to manage and improve the safety and security of the workers on the remote work site, with a view to protecting staff and property from unauthorised access and other OH&S issues. The solution will also enable greater emergency response and ensure that site managers will be able to identify historical events of interest and provide indisputable evidence of activities using Panasonic high-definition cameras and Geutebrück video management systems.
UXC Connect has invested significantly in its IP Video Surveillance solution, developing strong alternatives to the current options in the resources market, particularly for enterprise organisations looking for a converged surveillance and security system, said Richard Ellison, Solution Manager, IP Video Surveillance.
“UXC Connect is the first IT solutions provider in APAC to partner with world class technology vendors to bring a converged solution to market. UXC Connect’s offering exceeds many other IP Video surveillance offerings available, both in terms of the technology and support services.”
“Our investment in the IP Video surveillance space, together with our extensive IT infrastructure skills, strong technical expertise, and a proven track record for delivering high-quality solutions for remote regional communities enabled us to create a truly robust and secure end-to-end solution that includes multiple delivery options,” Ellison said.
According to Ian Poole, CEO of UXC Connect, the contract highlights the benefits of further investment in the West Australian office and the company’s ability to develop world class solutions for some of the most challenging environments.
“UXC Connect is thrilled to secure this contract; it is further evidence of our successful go-to-market strategy where we continue to invest in the people and partnerships that enable us to create market leading solutions.”
“The growth we have seen in Western Australia and particularly in the mining oil, and gas sector has meant that we have been able to invest extensively in our WA team. This has enabled UXC Connect to further diversify its offerings and build on the successes of our other specialised solutions such as Entertainment and Content, which has been deployed to over 12,000 accommodation village rooms throughout Australia,” said Poole.
