Success of secured cities hinges on interoperability

San Ramon, Ca (USA)

“The success of secured city deployments hinges on the interoperability and common communication interfaces that ONVIF and other standards organisations provide,” says Per Björkdahl, ONVIF Steering Committee Chair.

As part of the Secured Cities educational programme, ONVIF will discuss the rise of fully-integrated ‘Secured Cities’ and the role integration plays in their deployment. Integration of systems and products from a variety of vendors and technology disciplines and the use of standards in Secured City environments will be explored. Stuart Rawling, a member of ONVIF’s Steering Committee and Director of Global Business Development for Pelco by Schneider Electric, will present the session, “Interoperability: The Engine Running Safe Cities”, on Wednesday, Nov. 16th, at 5:40 P.M. in the San Jacinto 3 room.

The Secured Cities 2016 event is an educational conference devoted to urban security initiatives and municipal surveillance projects, and ONVIF will also be a sponsor of the three-day event, which will be held from November 15-17 in Houston, Texas, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Reliant Park.

Per Björkdahl, ONVIF Steering Committee Chair, commented. “We are excited to sponsor Secured Cities and to discuss the nuts and bolts of interoperability and how standards are being used to bridge the gaps between manufacturers, devices and technologies.”

In addition to its sponsorship and seminar presentation, ONVIF will be represented by several member companies exhibiting at Secured Cities, accounting for approximately 30 percent of all exhibitors at this year’s event, including: Assa Abloy, Axis Communications, Bosch Security Systems, Inc., Dallmeier electronic, Flir Systems, Genetec, Hitachi, Indigovision, Milestone, Pelco by Schneider Electric, Salient Systems, Teleste and Videoinsight.
