Frost & Sullivan will host a conference call on Tuesday 4 December 2007 at 14.00 GMT to provide industry participants with an overview of the recently published study focusing on Convergence of Physical Security with IP in the European Market.
As technology advances in the security industry from analogue to digital, and to IP, vendors and customers are reviewing opportunities to secure facilities more comprehensively through multi-layered or integrated technology instead of isolated security products. Integrated security essentially involves the convergence of IP with physical security. The growing need for higher levels of security is pushing organisations to opt for multi-layered security that incorporates access control, video surveillance and other security sectors devices into the security infrastructure to authenticate and verify personnel, objects and vehicles.
This briefing is based upon ongoing "Convergence of Physical Security with IP in the European Market" analysis. The report provides an insight into the dynamics guiding this market, and includes market challenges, drivers, restraints and avenues of opportunity for growth. Highlights of the briefing include: identifying forces that impact the market, analysis on various security technologies and also an analysis on how the convergence trend is driving the need for integration in the security sector.
"Open protocols, networks and faster computers have led to the diversification of IP networks to many areas of organisations, as a result of which interoperability can be extended to applications such as security. Corporate security services such as video surveillance, access control, fraud detection and access control, are increasingly database-driven and network-delivered, leading to IP becoming ever more tightly woven together with physical security," observes Archana Rao, Senior Analyst for Frost & Sullivan's Automatic Identification & Security group.
