The 3 i’s – IFSEC, innovation and integration

The IFSEC 2015 event promoted ‘innovation’ and ‘integration’. Nedap developed a presentation about the innovation and integration of the new software release – AEOS v3.1. But what is innovative about it and how does it deliver enhanced integration for users?

The drive to innovate security solutions and to deliver enhanced integration must be focused on achieving the objective of customer value – we want to deliver simpler, faster, longer-lasting solutions for our clients. Today’s security manager (but also consultants and integrators) are faced with many security challenges – e.g. legacy systems, IT demands, regulations and, budget constraints. Against this seemingly doom-laden landscape however it is possible to find the opportunity to propose modern, innovative solutions that can solve modern security challenges and create an ideal platform for future technology.

Background trends

This year we have seen the 40th anniversary of Moore’s Law which in simplified terms observes that processing power of computers would double every 2-years. We should expect that this incredible processor performance offers advantages to an industry full of controllers, right? Other relevant trends include the acceptance of software to deliver functionality and of multi-application devices – the prime example being smart phones, where one device manages many applications and deploying new functionality is simple – install an app!

Nedap is the first security supplier that has taken this approach to their security hardware and created a true multi-application device that has functionality (access control, sensor management, intercom, lockers, IP camera control and programmable logic) determined by adaptable, modular software - the widely used term ‘app’ best describes this. Like the smart phone, the functionality of the Nedap controller is not limited – users can always add an app!

Nedap’s innovative integration

Imagine a controller with incredible processing performance - sufficient to be able to manage multiple applications on one device. Then add the flexibility of software apps that can be deployed to create functionality that can be changed, reconfigured and updated easily. Users are close to imagining a Nedap AEOS controller.
