Netronix is proud to be a one-stop source for security system design, installation, and round the clock service for our many clients. We stay on the bleeding-edge of the various security solution technologies spanning video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection, mass communications and more. Here, we focus on how virtual networks can significantly improve your access system’s performance and why now may be an ideal time to have Netronix assist you in growing and maintaining a more flexible and capable access control system.

Network virtualization, simply stated, enables networking and security services to be delivered entirely in a software solution. The result? Users can better tackle their business demands thanks to increased speed, responsiveness and overall security. That’s because virtualized networks have the ability to deliver efficiencies that simply aren’t available in logical networks which are built upon hardware architectures.


Access control solutions and technologies have a long history of evolution; they continue to grow in sophistication. Virtual networks now play an important role in that evolution as they transform the traditional network operating model. Businesses we serve that are utilizing one are reaping the benefits of faster and more efficient operational processes

The Virtual Network solutions that we at Netronix offer will give you the flexibility to grow your access control system from covering a small number of doors and users to one that covers a much larger number of doors and users as needed. Our solutions allow stand-alone locks to read, receive and write information using an encrypted and secure data-on-card system that leverages the capabilities of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) read/write technology to identify people or objects.

You can rest assured knowing that all your access data is stored on – and distributed by – its operating smartcard. For example, when users present their smartcard to an offline stand-alone door, it not only can control their access rights to that door but, because of two-way communication, it also enables the door to write other data such as blacklist information or battery status back to the smartcard. The smartcard then transmits this information back to the server via online wall readers that are able to update and receive information from the cards anytime and anywhere in the building to deny or grant access.

In addition to the heightened security that a virtual network adds to your access control system, it also will eliminate the need – and costs – of replacing locks when key or code security is breached due to the loss of theft of keys or codes. And there’s more good news – it can be integrated simply and seamlessly with your existing IT system to allow key cards and locks to be updated, restricted, or deleted remotely.

Call Netronix today to see how network virtualization can allow you to control all the doors in your buildings from one central location with just the simple click of a mouse, monitor your access network, delete key cards, and download audit trail information all in real-time!
