Businesses with video surveillance systems already have a leg up over those that do not. Law enforcement and governments have used video surveillance systems to monitor criminal activity and maintain social control. The Department of Homeland Security has awarded billions of dollars to federal, state and local workers to install video surveillance systems. Businesses with video surveillance systems are just following the lead of the government.
There is a perfect complement to video surveillance systems, being secure business telephone systems. These voice over ip phone systems, or VOIP phone systems, have the potential to rework the global telecommunications industry. In fact, anyone who has made a long distance call has likely used VOIP. VOIP users are now finding that the system has a much lower risk of interception than non VOIP users.
In the future, all circuit switching phone systems will be replaced with packet switching phone systems, a perfect complement to video surveillance systems. The two technologies combined will make business premises more secure, and help with data interception. This will mean business can be conducted more efficiently in the cloak of safety, and that the world can be a better place.
