Technology & Security

Why ECC

ECC Technologies, Inc. provides consulting services for network, telecommunications, and building communications and security systems. Our project managers and technical specialists provide comprehensive solutions for the complete project life cycle.

Critical applications, such as VOIP telephone, security, video surveillance, mass notification, IP video, direct digital control, and IP sound systems now rely on the IP network and Internet access to operate. Our services include a detailed assessment of existing internal and external technologies and ancillary systems.

Our staff includes Cisco Certified Network Associates (CCNA), BICSI Registered Communications and Distribution Designer (RCDD) and design specialists experienced in the planning, design, construction administration, and integration of these specialized systems. In addition to our highly trained staff, we have in-depth knowledge of SED building aid, Procurement/Bidding, Smart School Funding, BOCES CoSers, and SLD E-rate programs.

WHAT WE DO

NETWORK COMMUNICATION

ECC provides planning, design, installation, integration, and support services for network and wireless communications. We work with all major network equipment manufacturers, telecom carriers, Cable TV, utilities, wireless companies, and other entities to provide cost-effective, scalable solutions.

UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS

Our team has extensive experience with telephone systems, voicemail and auto-attendant, VoIP, and computer telephony integrations for on-premise, hybrid, and cloud solutions. Our knowledge extends from designing public address, paging, wireless, and nurse call communication systems to supporting private network circuits, local dial tone, E911, and toll/toll-free services.

EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS

ECC’s professionals are experienced in a wide range of 911, emergency management, and mobile data communications. We provide comprehensive planning, design, installation, and ongoing support for public safety, voice, data, and video communications. Our systems and networks support secure communications across local, metropolitan, regional, and statewide networks.

SECURITY & SURVEILLANCE

ECC employs a comprehensive approach to the design and implementation of an organization’s security plan. Security designs must take into consideration an organization’s requirements while monitoring and controlling access to the public. Our design, specification, and project management services include the integration of intrusion, access control, and surveillance video within buildings and across network environments.

Smart Schools

Safer and smarter schools rely on a robust network.

ECC Technologies has assisted school districts from across NYS with Smart Schools Implementation Plan application and approval processes. We have 20 years of experience working with School Districts and Architectural/Engineering firms as the specialized Technology and Security Consultant.

Building Condition Surveys

NYS Education Department (NYSED) requires all facilities in a district to be reviewed by an Architect or Engineer every 5 years.

Building Condition Surveys (BCS) should always include assessments of technology and security systems in the facilities and across the campus. Network (IP) infrastructure supports all building technologies and security systems and is critical to the educational and operational function of the school facilities. Significant capital improvements can be associated with these systems and should be included in all BCS and Five Year Planning Reports.

These plans provide detailed scope, budget analysis, and options for phased construction to maximize the value of legacy systems and responsibly implement new technology. Our detailed project management services range from technology and security systems to operational and organizational analysis of technical environments.

In addition to designing the systems themselves, we are also experts in designing all the cabling and wireless infrastructure necessary to support these systems, meeting or exceeding all EIA/TIA standards.

PROCUREMENT

ECC utilizes a variety of procurement methodologies including public bid or RFP, NYS OGS contracts, and other contract vehicles. Our project budgets are first established in the planning stage and refined through the design phases so our clients know the resources necessary for a successful implementation.

IMPLEMENTATION

ECC acts as the owners’ representative with all vendors and service providers as systems are installed and activated over the course of a project. We work with architects, engineers, and customer support organizations to develop bid packages containing drawings and specifications and project manage the installation through closeout. Throughout the projects we oversee, ECC responds to contractor and owner questions and reviews the installation for completeness and adherence to contract documents.
