Indoor Robotics’ Tando™ drone fleet monitors autonomously MedOne’s data centres for safety and security purposes

MedOne, Israel’s largest data center hub providing comprehensive hosting services and public cloud services, has implemented Indoor Robotics’ Tando™ system at its biggest server farm in Israel for the purpose of improving security and safety. Tando™ by Indoor Robotics, a first-of-its-kind solution, is a fully autonomous indoor drone fleet that independently performs safety and security inspection missions inside buildings anywhere, anytime. In the future, MedOne intends to assimilate the technology into the rest of its facilities across the country.

The Tando™ system conducts ongoing inspection rounds throughout the night and on weekends. Tando scans the complex to detect any changes, malfunctions, or leaks, and monitors the temperature to ensure the integrity and ongoing operation of the site.

The system operates autonomously, according to the tasks defined by MedOne. The drones patrol the premises at set times, collect information and reports to the safety and security manager if an unusual activity is detected (e.g., identification of a person while the space is supposed to be empty, leakage, temperature change, door left open).

The system can be activated proactively to check an alert coming from other systems such as smoke sensors, access controls or motion sensors. It is a simple system to operate, without a need for special training. The operator indicates which area on the map they want monitored and which information they want collected, and the system determines the most suitable drone for the mission while using the safest route to provide the information quickly. Information from the drone can be viewed in real time or after the mission is completed.

Ofir Bar-Levav, Chief Business Officer, Indoor Robotics: “We are pleased to partner with MedOne, a leader in its field. The management of the safety and security systems in data centers is critical to ensure the quality and protection of highly sensitive information. Tando™ will enable complete and ongoing monitoring of the facilities at all times.”

MedOne’s server farms are highly secured in underground complexes. They constitute a major communication hub of the State of Israel to the world since most of the communication traffic of the State of Israel passes through MedOne’s facilities.
