BT Tackles Cable Thieves
RABIT alerts BT’s Security Control Centre, and Police response teams, when cable thieves attack the company’s UK telephone and broadband network. A trial of the technology has already forced cable thieves to flee the scene of the crime, in Essex, empty handed.
RABIT (Rapid Assessment Bt Incident Tracker) was trialled in December 2011. The technology constantly monitors the BT network and detects when communication has been disconnected.
