Communications Regulations Commission, Sofia

Europe

The headquarters of Bulgaria’s Communications Regulation Commission is now protected by an industry-leading fire system from Advanced as part of a major refurbishment project and drive to reduce false alarms.

Located in Sofia, the Communications Regulation Commission (CRC) was established in 2002 as an independent state authority entrusted with the management and regulation of all electronic communications in Bulgaria.

A recent upgrade of the fire systems in the CRC office was undertaken by Advanced partner, FireTech Engineering Ltd. The project saw Advanced’s Axis EN system installed in the building, supported by smoke detectors and Advanced’s AlarmCalm false alarm management solution.

Axis EN is EN54 2, 4 & 13 approved and its panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high speed, multi-loop panels in 200 node networks covering huge areas. AlarmCalm is a free upgrade to Advanced software and firmware that  manages verification and investigation delays to outputs. It allows the false alarm management strategy for a site to be refined to take account account of factors such as specific resident needs and the utilisation individual areas. It includes the AlarmCalm loop device that allows residents or trained staff to indicate whether they believe a signal in their area is due to a false alarm.
