AMAG Technology

Symmetry Preferred Partner, Farpointe Data Certifies Long-Range Readers and Transmitters with Symmetry Access Control System

AMAG Technology, an integrated security provider of access control, video management and identity management solutions, is proud to announce that Farpointe Data is a certified member of AMAG's Symmetry™ Preferred Partner Program. As a certified partner, Farpointe Data's Ranger® Long-Range Readers and Transmitters integrate with AMAG's Symmetry Access Control System. AMAG Technology and Farpointe Data cooperatively tested and certified this integration.

Farpointe Data's Ranger® long-range readers and transmitters allow doors, gates or barriers to open or close up to 200 feet (61 meters) from the high frequency credentials. The readers operate with the Symmetry Access Control software and all three controller product lines: Symmetry M2150, Symmetry SR Controller or Symmetry EN door controller and do not require additional software or licenses.

"We welcome Farpointe to our Symmetry Preferred Partner Program and look forward to a long relationship and many satisfied customers," said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Product Marketing, Dave Ella. "The addition of the Farpointe Data long-range reader and transmitters allows AMAG to offer our customers an access control solution for applications where a door or barrier needs to be opened from a long distance, such as for vehicle access applications."

"Ranger receivers are a terrific solution for long range physical access control applications such as entering buildings, lifting gates and vehicle barriers, moving aircraft in and out of secure hangars, arming and disarming alarm systems as well as situations calling for emergency duress," emphasizes Scott Lindley, Farpointe Data president. "Instead of using a long range card, which could activate more than one device or door at a time, the transmitter holder selects exactly the mechanism to be immediately triggered."

EMC

Mr. Ken Mills, Global Surveillance Strategy & Business Development, EMC, told us, "A challenge I've seen with many public safety organizations is the inability to see the holistic picture when it comes to managing data. Addressing the topic of body-worndevices cannot be done independently of other data sources. In November, I participated on a Secured Cities panel with Rodney Monroe, the recently retired Chief of Police for Charlotte, NC. Chief Monroe highlighted three key things that police departments must to do before deploying body-worn cameras."

  • Consider the long-term cost.
  • Develop a complete evidence strategy beyond body cameras; body-worn video is not the only data they will need to manage. Regardless of how they store their body-worn data, police departments must also manage data from a host of other applications like crime labs, digital evidence,surveillance, drones, in-car, license plate recognition, interview rooms, crime scene footage and more.
  • Ensure that the platform they choose is open and future ready. "By choosing an open storage platform from EMC," Monroe said, "the City of Charlotte not only saved money but we are now ableto share critical data across the department."

"At EMC, we strongly advise against siloed architectures as they are limiting when it comes to the transport, analysis, and value-generation of data. Forward-thinking public safety departments like the City of Charlotte are building a data platform that can collect, store, and manage all these different pools of data. The City of Charlotte implemented a Public Safety Data Lake -- a concept developed by EMC Surveillance that speaks to an open architecture that is scalable and analytics-ready. The data lake infrastructure provides a more cost-effective storage environment with the ability to seamlessly integrate new types of devices while gaining more control over the data."

Mr. Terry Gainer, Chief of Police, added, "The trend that is having the greatest impact is the emergence of new surveillance devices. Technologies such as drones, body cameras, license plate trackers, audio/video reconnaissance, and facial recognition are causing a large influx in data. This, in turn, is creating a number of challenges for public safety organizations with regard to data management and integration, evidence retrieval, and analytics.

"There is also a significant push towards body-worn devices as a standard technology for police organizations, supported by the establishment and United States Federal investment in the Body-Worn Camera (BWC) Pilot-Partnership Program. One third of the 12,000 police departments in the United States are already using body cameras and new departments are deploying devices every day. Some cities and states are mandating the addition of body-worn devices. But the associated costs are significant, even factoring in the availability of Federal grants as a part of the BWC program.

Compounding these challenges are the varied legislative requirements associated with these new devices. Laws on evidence management and storage differ from state to state and on the type of crime. Data on minor traffic stops, for example, might only need to be kept for 30-45 days, while DUI data might need to be kept for 3 years or more. Data for federal crimes might need to be kept for the length of the imprisonment, or in some cases, forever. Most states have laws that require that the evidence used in a case be kept for a minimum of 7 years. Despite these inconsistencies, one thing is clear: video from body-worn cameras has a long shelf life."

Lockheed Martin IDHaystack™

Mr. John Mears, Senior Fellow, Information Technology & Security Solutions, Lockheed Martin IS&GS Civil, told us, "The idea behind IDHaystack™ is to make identification and verification services more accessible and evergreen within a secure Government community cloud construct. We were thinking, 'Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to offer an advanced multi-modal biometric system in a way accessible to many different Government customers without their having to expend significant capital to get it?' We wanted to create an evergreen biometrics engine that could support an open framework in which customers' existing unique workflows, rules, interfaces and user requirements could be accommodated as they exist or built separately to suit them. We tested these tenets with customers around the world and got positive affirmation that this is what they wanted going forward. Let me elaborate on why this idea is revolutionary."

Route1

Route1 Receives ATO for MobiKEY from the U.S. Department of the Interior

Route1 Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ROI) (the Company or Route1), a leading provider of secure access technologies for the mobile workspace to protect businesses and government agencies, announced that the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), after completing its accreditation process, issued an authority to operate (ATO) for the MobiKEY technology and the DEFIMNET platform that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) installed at a secure DOI hosting facility in March 2015.

"The MobiKEY technology is one of the core components in our bureau mobility and desktop virtualization strategy. After extensive piloting across all our regional offices we found that it delivers an exceptional level of functionality and flexibility across a wide gamut of use cases, while at the same time exceeding the strictest departmental and federal security requirements," said Ken Taylor, FWS' Assistant Director, IRTM and CIO. "As an added value, we found the MobiKEY technology out of the box enhanced our Citrix VDI solution -- delivering portability and astounding performance. With the accreditation of the DEFIMNET completed, and a full ATO granted by the Department of Interior, we envision rapid adaptation of the solution across all the DOI bureaus. It will enable the department to strengthen its HSPD-12 compliance without incurring any capital outlays."
