WEBINAR: Unifying Network and Security Operations

Panduit designed its Unified Operations Center (UOC) to be a living example of the power of the company's Unified Physical Infrastructure℠ (UPI) approach to unify core business systems and deliver deeper visibility into real-time building operations data. Located at Panduit's World Headquarters, the UOC is a centralized operations center that combines network, building, and security functions. It is one of the first operations centers of its kind to unify Network Operations Center (NOC) and Security Operations Center (SOC) functions, enabling Panduit to manage the security of its global facilities from a central location.

By integrating management of the network and physical security systems over a UPI-based physical infrastructure, Panduit's UOC allows data to be shared across a full spectrum of network, building system, and security applications for improved operational awareness and response. Participants of this event will receive key insights into leveraging existing IP infrastructure investment, physical security and operations (SOC), network security and operations (NOC), and facilities operations.

What Attendees will learn:
  • Unified Physical Infrastructure℠ (UPI) approach to business systems and deeper visibility into real-time building operations data
  • Development of a Unified Operations Center for centralized global security
  • Leveraging existing IP infrastructure for combined physical security operations (SOC) and network operations (NOC) and facilities operations
