A technological hub in the heart of Milan | SECURSAT

A technological hub in the heart of Milan


Much more than a control room, a real Technological Hub, born as an innovative concept, that is used both for security monitoring, and as a showroom in the heart of Milan: it is the Secursat SOC – Security Operation Centerdeveloped in partnership with Intermark Sistemi.

Secursat was founded as an outsourcing of the banking sector with the aim of managing traditional security systems through the network, not only for the financial sector but also for retail, industrial and real estate. Talking about security means managing risks, that is, monitoring thousands of sites and managing big data from installations around the whole world to ensure the protection of jobs, buildings and in general of all the assets of Secursat customers.

The complexity of the subject, the competence of the young managers (average age 35 years) graduated in security sciences and criminology, and the know-how built in years of passionate work by Secursat required an uncompromising technological approach, capable of looking simultaneously at functionality, performance, reliability and ergonomics. Without forgetting that the Secursat SOC is certified in accordance with the European Standard EN 50518, which regulates the structural, performance and organizational aspects of an Operations Center.

“We have imagined an open environment without limits or borders to better represent our openness to new technologies and new risk scenarios, remaining loyal to the values that have always guided us, those of an ethical and sustainable business”
Giuseppe Calabrese – CEO Secursat

The challenge for Intermark Sistemi

The challenge faced by Intermark Sistemi was therefore as demanding as fascinating, and the choice fell on the best brands in the control room sector: RDI for the operator consoles, VUWALL for the management of the room’s videowalls, AMX for the centralized control based on touch panels and ALFATRON (now JOSAWA) for the distribution of signals, based upon both copper and fiber cables.

“We have found in Secursat a unique partner in the control room vertical and we have provided the best technological solutions on the market, in order to build an innovative control room model”
Fabio Concezzi, CEO Intermark Sistemi

Before analyzing the solutions in detail, let’s see the main features of the room: double videowall (a 3×2 and a 2×2) mounted on custom columns to keep it flush with the wall and to make the structure independent from the furniture that integrates it; four operator consoles, each equipped with 3 monitors mounted on fully adjustable arms, connectivity on the worktop and wireless charging stations; technical space adjacent to the room to safely accommodate the whole rack equipment, from the videowall management server to the room controller; two meeting rooms interconnected with the main room and equipped with technologies for presentations and video conferences.

RDI Operator Console (Roomdimensions)

For the consoles Secursat has chosen the LITE series of RDI, essential and equipped with every technical detail to ensure maximum installation and operational functionality: robust supporting structure, predefined cable routes, housings for technologies, access from anywhere, rack spaces with patches for power supplies and network, drawers for stationery, complete connectivity on the work surface, wireless charging of personal devices, colored LEDs and backlit logo.

VuWall videowall servers and controllers

The VuWall server dedicated to the image controller on the video wall, also located in the technical room, is a powerful wokstation equipped with physical and virtual inputs and outputs to manage any type of audio and video signal and equipped with VuWall2 PRO software platform, specifically designed for NOC / SOC applications. With VuWall, video walls and meeting room monitors become free work surfaces on which it is possible to place the sources freely: the management is typically done through predefined layouts during the configuration of the room and can be modified by the operators at any time. The integration with the main camera management systems makes the integration of different systems and the management of hundreds of cameras particularly simple and effective.

AMX control touch panel

To complete the equipment of the room, an AMX touch panel could not miss: a 10” touch screen in table version, always ready to change the layouts of the video wall or activate any functions for the control of the entire room. The creation of the user interface has been taken care of with particular attention to make the operation intuitive and to offer on a first level only the necessary commands, leaving to secondary pages any settings of less common use. The NX-1200 controller, the smallest in the AMX series, has enough power to handle all room equipment and to automate key functions.

CatX and ALFATRON (now JOSAWA) fibre cabling

The ALFATRON (JOSAWA) cabling has been developed mainly on category cables using signal extenders, adding some fiber cables that ensure the highest quality at 40 meters without needing additional hardware. The wiring is centralized within the technical room, adjacent to the control room and connected with separate cable routes to the consoles and to the video walls. The position of the server room as an appendix of the control room was the best choice for Secursat, and they know that with KVM remote technologies it is possible to place the server room even miles away.

Conference rooms integrated with the control room

The project was designed from the beginning to make this hub a real showroom, to welcome customers and partners and show them how to manage security risks in a perspective of open innovation – the SOC is in fact supported by two conference rooms connected to the data system and able to show on their displays any source, regardless of the activity of the operation center, which is not disturbed. Maximum flexibility, therefore, both in the use of the meeting rooms and in the management of the main control room.
