    I'm looking for a telecom shelter electronic access system for about 1000
    sites. Most popular in the industry seem to be the GE Security TRACess /
    SUPRA system. Comments on this system or any other solution are most

    With IP connectivity being more and more universal, I'm wondering if a real
    time access control system for remote telecom shelters has become affordable
    as well as mature for this application. There seem to be plenty of access
    systems designed for large buildings with hundreds of doors, but not many
    for the telecom "one door per building x 1000" approach.

    You can see that I'm struggling with choosing the popular TRACess, non-real
    time (for audit purposes) technology over something newer with real time
    responsiveness. The advantage of a real time system is that terminated
    employees and contractors immediately loose their access. Secondly, if
    someone doesn't have a keypad with them for whatever legitamite reason, the
    door can be opened remotely. Also for discussion in this vein is card vs.
    keypad or other means of authenticating the user.

    Comments with reference to a vendor are very much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance,

    You might be interested in perusing the information on this page. A "SCADA"
    type system may be an alternative to consider. Although the units we're
    currently servicing don't provide access control, they can be adapted.
