To deploy Genetec Citigraf™ Command for your city, you need to install and configure the Correlation Service role, the Correlation Rules Engine role, the Security Center Data Correlation Adapter role, and the plugin roles for the integration of the external data sources that your city might need, such as computer-aided dispatch (CAD) system, gunshot detection notification system, record management system (RMS), and so on.
