Blurring the Boundaries of Technology Systems

At its core, BlueRoot projects have a singular, unified technology platform, with all interdependent solutions seamlessly working in perfect harmony regardless of where lines of individual system boundaries happen to fall.

With the proliferation and innovation of new technological systems, the traditional lines that separated systems are being obliterated. Because of the interdependent nature of solutions on the technology platform, you simply need everything to work in perfect harmony, regardless of where the actual systems lines begin and end. WhiteOak Group orchestrates all of the sections of the pieces into a unified symphony.

All technology systems can be classified under the following 7 technology supersystems: Access Control, Audiovisual, Building Management, Communications, Infrastructure, IT Enterprise, and Security.



Access Control

Access Control enables a business to allow or deny entry to specific areas and resources (an office building can house several businesses). While all employees will be granted access to the building for a given business, each business will only want to grant floor or office access to select individuals within their organization, Access control can be extended from exterior entrance gates, through the lobby, into the elevator, and into specific rooms within an office space. Select list of types of Access Control technologies:

  • Keypad and magnetic controls
  • Electronic gates
  • Elevator controls
  • RFI cards and readers
  • Motion sensor controls
  • Central management
  • Multi-location compatibility


Building Management Systems accomplish the integration and control of mechanical systems such as HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing, Lighting, and more. Much like the thermostat that you use to control the temperature, every aspect of a building’s functions can be managed from a central location. This system lets you monitor operability and maintenance to increase efficiencies.


The Infrastructure System, underlying all other systems, is the most important part of a building. Often overlooked, Infrastructure is the backbone of any and all operable systems that require a cabling system with which to transmit and receive data (even wireless, which requires a wired home base). A well-built infrastructure can enhance the function of all other systems and handle the growth of the technology that it supports.

Select list of types of Infrastructure technologies:

  • Copper
  • Fiber
  • Point-to-point
  • Structured zone cabling
  • Passive optical networks
  • Inside and outside plant
  • Wireless
  • Keyed connectivity
  • Secure


Your Security System keeps your office, and by extension, your business and personnel safe. From parking lot to workstation, a robust system can be customized to protect you every step of the way. Special construction techniques can protect you against intrusion and eavesdropping and IP-based electronic components can be integrated into one seamless, secure space.

Select list of types of Security technologies:

  • Intrusion detection
  • Smoke and fire alarms
  • Remote monitoring
  • Mechanical and electrical door systems
  • Keypad locks
  • Mantraps
  • Safes
  • SCIF construction
  • Motion detectors
  • Cameras
  • Laser
  • Physical and network
  • Interior and exterior


Audio Visual

Audio Visual technology enhances your Communications System’s abilities. Simple conference calls become collaborative meetings between multiple remote locations. Staid business meetings become live, interactive sessions with advanced presentation tools that capture and share progress. From simple all-in-one video teleconference systems to advanced collaboration tools, AV technology can be used to more efficiently manage your business. Select list of types of Audio Visual technologies:

  • Video Teleconferencing (VTC)
  • Multi-Point Conference Calls and VTC
  • Interactive HD Displays
  • Smart whiteboards
  • Conference capture
  • Advanced speaker phones
  • Integrated room control
  • Electronic signage
  • Sound Masking/Acoustics Control


Communications Systems utilize technology to create a link between you and the world beyond your desk. Numerous methods exist for you to establish and maintain contact with those who are important to you in your business and personal spheres of influence. Multiple technologies can be integrated into one robust system.

Select list of types of Communications technologies:

  • Phone
  • Conference calls
  • Faxes
  • Internet
  • Voicemails
  • Emails
  • Chat
  • Texting
  • Blogging
  • Social networking


The IT Enterprise System is the heart of your Communications System and composed of common tools like PCs, laptops and user applications as well as the servers and switches that manage complex sets of data. All of the information that is produced and shared in the course of doing business is processed, directed, managed, stored, protected, encoded and decoded, and transmitted and received within the IT Enterprise.

Select list of types of IT Enterprise technologies:

  • PCs/laptops
  • Client software
  • Network applications
  • Servers
  • Core switches
  • Client switches
  • Phone switches
  • Routers
  • Local storage
  • Cloud storage
  • NAS
  • Firewalls
  • Wireless
  • Security
  • Management systems
  • Data centers
  • Server rooms
