BT, UK’s leading telecommunication service provider,has devised a burglar alarm that will help the company to catch its copper cable thieves. The alarm called Rabit (Rapid Assessment BT Incident Tracker), is mainly installed for Scottish thieves who probably earn their living from BT’s capital.
Rabit is in place in Scotland to aid BT’s security control centre and police in detecting thieves’ locations. The alarm system has already been trialed in which the outcome was found very successful.
“BT’s new burglar alarm on the network will make thieves think again,” said Brendan Dick, BT’s Scotland director.
Last year alone, 480 thieves were arrested for interrupting BT’s broadband and phone service and stealing the copper cable. Police hopes that Rabit technology will help them find the whereabouts of malicious attacks on BT’s network.
