ISONAS, Inc. news
ISONAS Inc., IP access control manufacturer, has announced that the company will be unveiling its new IP-Bridge 2.0 at booth #11121 at the ISC West trade show, the largest security event in the world. The ISC West show will take place on April 11th – 13th at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, NV. At the show, ISONAS will be featuring its pure IP family of hardware and software products, along with the launch of the next generation of its access control encoder; the new IP-Bridge 2.0. ISONAS has continued to expand their integrated community and will introduce additional partners at ISC West; further expanding the power of choice for customers. IP-Bridge 2.0 As IP technologies and IoT devices proliferate the security market, the IP-bridge has been the tool to migrate old legacy systems into the IP era. Just like the video encoder transitioned the analog video surveillance market to IP, the new IP-Bridge 2.0 delivers this same simple path for the access control market. With more processing power and additional functionality local to the device, the IP-Bridge 2.0 expands on the core benefits of its predecessor, allowing users to avoid a rip and replace scenario. Paired with the ISONAS R-1 Wiegand readers, the IP-Bridge 2.0 provides access to Bluetooth Low Energy capabilities, giving legacy system takeovers access to mobile credentials along with a straightforward road to IP technology. Pure IP access control In addition, ISONAS plans to reveal two new integration partners at ISC West, expanding the functionality of its software and hardware platforms. The newest integration with Entrust Datacard’s software, TruCredential, brings a flexible badge printing solution to Pure Access and delivers an easy-to-use card design, issuance and management system. The second integration is with a global access control software company that will utilize the ISONAS hardware SDK to drive the benefits of Pure IP hardware with their enterprise level access control software platform. This new partner will be revealed at the ISONAS media event taking place on Wednesday, April 11th at 4 p.m. “We are extremely excited to launch our new IP-Bridge 2.0 at the ISC West show this year as well as our latest integration partners,” states Rob Mossman, CEO at ISONAS. “Our business is committed to the continued growth of our integrated partners and becoming the defacto standard for IP Access Control hardware. We look forward to educating our customers on the benefits of our IP solution at our annual media event and keeping the Pure IP revolution moving forward.”
The manufacturers behind today’s security technologies are a varied bunch. There are large manufacturers with deep pockets and plenty of resources. And there are smaller manufacturers who are nimble, can react faster to changing market conditions and to whom each customer represents a hard-fought win. There are also plenty of manufacturers in the middle ground. But what impact does the size of a company have on the quality of its products? We took the question to this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: Is there a correlation between the size of a manufacturer and the quality of its products – for better or worse?
How much does a security system cost? We all know that total costs associated with systems are substantially higher than the “price tag.” There are many elements, tangible and intangible, that contribute to the costs of owning and operating a system. Taking a broad view and finding ways to measure these additional costs enables integrators and users to get the most value from a system at the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO). However, measuring TCO can be easier said than done. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable to share the benefit of their collective expertise on the subject. Specifically, we asked: How should integrators and/or end users measure total cost of ownership (TCO) when quantifying the value of security systems?
