We have come to an era where our lives depend on connectivity in managing our daily lives. During emergencies, it is critical to have instant access to law enforcement and emergency systems. For example, in the case of criminal acts, live video feeds enable near real-time response. State and city governments are already modernizing their data centers so that they can support the next generation of digital demands. These demands include processing power, optimal speed, expanding capacity to ensure uptime and upgrading power protection.
Law enforcement and emergency systems need data centers to keep up with the big data and cloud-based businesses. Data centers need to be reliable, scalable and efficient while keeping data safe at the same time. These systems need to be able to control and monitor entire physical infrastructures to drive agency performances.
How Data Centers Meet Digital Needs
With modernization, industry requirements have been forced to change with the advanced digital technology. Public agencies are no exception. Just like businesses, city governments and public agency data centers need to be able to support an increasing number of gadgets and devices. Some of these devices include police body cameras, drones, biometrics, police car laptops and real-time surveillance camera systems. Since most of these devices create large amounts of video and data, storage is a top priority.
These technologies can only work best depending on the infrastructure set in place to support them. Adopting technology has certainly gained a positive momentum for making processes more efficient. However, many agencies operate on widely distributed and outdated environments which add stress to the processing capabilities of already-taxed data centers.
Things have started to change with emergency and law enforcement agencies starting to upgrade their data center infrastructure. CIOs in big cities have started driving the consolidation of distributed IT. This is done to work towards having more centralized and efficient environments to run functions that are non-emergencies.
Emergency responders can facilitate seamless transfer of information and can handle at least 10 million calls per year. Systems need to move to digital ready environments to enable interaction and ensure connectivity via social media, photo and video, and text messaging. This project has already advanced to the proposal stage and in early 2018, Text-to-911 is expected to be live.
Technology has become a vital part of the agenda in many large cities. Modern data centers have been centralized to enable the well-being of citizens. Part of modernizing data centers includes implementing the use of the latest power backup solution such as three-phase UPS.
