ask attendees to consider their current perimeter security strategy and its effectiveness
in defending against attack, sabotage or harm to human life," Kirkaldie
elaborated. "Today's technologically advanced solutions provide robust
measures to detect intrusions and prevent nuisance alarms. System elements -
sensors, cameras, command and control applications - can network seamlessly and
cost effectively, if done right. With more than 70,000 systems protecting
critical infrastructure worldwide and over 40 years of perimeter detection
experience, Southwest Microwave provides the toolkit for achieving these goals."
