DTSI Group introduces Smart and Connected Communities

(June 29, 2012—Manila, Philippines)—DTSI Group, a full-service provider of state-of-the art facilities, advanced communication services, and game-changing technology to companies worldwide, announced the launch of Smart and Connected Buildings and Communities Services (SCBCS). According to executives, the innovative services converge technology and real estate applications, devices, and services in the Cloud to increase efficiencies and reduced costs.

The new offering addresses key concerns for both building owners and occupants, according to Miguel Garcia, DTSI president and CEO. “These services transform physical communities into connected communities and the traditional work area to an efficient, multi-site, productive workplace with managed costs and a safe, secure environment. They also generate savings and new revenue opportunities that accompany environmental sustainability.”

For owners, SCBCS provide reduced capital expenditure over the service life of the facility, as well as lower operational expenses. As a result of lower costs, building owners enjoy increased margins when setting lease rates. Individuals working in the facilities benefit from a healthy environment as well as the added convenience and physical and network safety provided by SCBCS.

Disparate networks in traditional buildings feature most of the business support services provided by buildings with SCBCS. The difference is that these features are in independent silos and only indirectly provide some degree of integrate support. In buildings with SCBCS, energy, security, networks, fire, Wi-Fi, and environmental systems all converge in one system, so that events are seamlessly and immediately reflected in all support systems.

“As a result, business support systems quickly address any event—power or network interruption, security break, or fire—and respond to alleviate any threat,” said Garcia. “But the principal benefit is the assurance of smooth operations with SCBCS in the background, almost like an autopilot guiding building managers and personnel and people working in the building through the business day or night.”

Philippine exporters of products and services work under highly competitive conditions. As a result, Garcia believes that executives must continually look for ways to enhance competitiveness through efficiency and productivity gains, and implement them. SCBCS helps organizations improve responsiveness, ensure business continuity, and maintain physical and network security, all critical issues when developing client and customer partnerships globally.

Developed by Cisco Systems, similar services are available for whole communities. Community+Connect provides the means to improve lives with services for homes, schools, transportation, and the like, while community managers are provided with solutions that help with the planning of the day-to-day operations and management of their communities through Community+Exchange.

DTSI also offers resource management services, contact center solutions, business communications systems, consulting, and network and infrastructure management.
