TechFarms Tenant, Branch Networks, "Branches" Into Something New 
 

TechFarms tenant, Branch Networks, has been providing fiber-powered Internet access to businesses across NW Florida now for several years. Recently, the company announced that it is now offering professional quality video surveillance systems that allow businesses to easily monitor their HD cameras on their PCs, tablets, and smartphones.

Branch was founded (and named) on the premise that it would eventually “branch” into other Internet related segments that would allow its customers to leverage the company’s expanding fiber network. In particular, high definition video surveillance cameras consume lots of upload bandwidth when viewed remotely. Unlike cable Internet connections, fiber’s symmetrical upload and download speeds makes it an ideal choice for large installations such as condos, hotels, apartments, warehouses, office buildings, shopping centers, and schools.

Branch’s expansion comes at a time when physical security is on everyone’s mind. Nationwide school shootings and increasing burglary rates are two factors driving the need for improved security. Businesses know that without high- resolution video they stand little or no chance of identifying and catching criminals. Fortunately, today’s HD video cameras and Network Video Recorders (NVR’s) allow business owners and security personnel to easily and quickly review video clips – even in total darkness thanks to improved infrared camera technology.
