Mr. Richard S. Brent, C.E.O., Louroe Electronics, told us, "The application of audio monitoring enables many options for the professional integrator of security systems. Within the security marketplace there are several vertical sectors such as access control, perimeter management, loss prevention, and life safety. Outside security industry uses the opportunity for is virtually endless. Audio monitoring for patient services such as sleep treatment labs, and operating centers, family programs, such as child protective services are another non-security application. The Entertainment Industry such as casinos and theme parks. House of worship facilities are also a market for our products. Louroe Electronics provides integrated security solutions for a plethora of commercial environments."

ImageWare Systems recently announced, "In addition to product development, ImageWare has been preparing for a major international deployment as the exclusive provider of biometric identity management for a prime contractor installing cargo scanning security at the Republic of Ecuador's major seaports. The initial deployment is currently scheduled to begin in the early part of 2013 at the Port of Guayaquil, the country's main seaport that handles a majority of its imports and exports. ImageWare expects to receive a fee for every port worker receiving credentials, as well as an annual management and maintenance fee, based on a percentage of the initial credentialing cost per worker. Depending upon the number of enrollees, the company expects the contract value to exceed $3.0 million over its seven year term."
"The high-end biometric secure credentialing solution we are providing for Ecuador is the same technology being deployed for the Los Angeles World Airports, which we announced earlier this year," noted Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO. "In fact, we can easily replicate this platform for virtually any port system that needs transportation worker identification cards in order to comply with the SAFE Port Act. Not only are our solutions easily deployable, for ImageWare they generally represent gross margins above 70% as well as a recurring revenue stream. Our unique patented technology has the potential to provide us strong, steady revenue growth, along with excellent forward-looking visibility."

A Success Story With Water Treatment Facilities
Water treatment facilities are uniquely difficult to secure as bringing an audit-capable security solution to remote and widespread locations poses a challenge for traditional access control solutions. Water facilities need solutions that allow them to secure perimeters, track the movements of individuals, and prevent unauthorized access to their physical assets.
A large water utility in Australia began their search to improve access control and secure their geographically widespread infrastructure that spans across 23,938 square miles and serves a population of approximately 70,000 people. After extensive research, the utility chose the CyberLock system for its versatility, superior security features, and ease of installation.
Now each employee needs only on key to access any lock they've been assigned access privileges. Security has improved as lost or stolen keys are now easily blocked. Since installation, they have rolled out the system through their entire infrastructure. CyberLock cylinders now secure the entire pipeline system and hundreds of locks are installed in pump stations, switchboards, wastewater treatment plants, and depot facilities.

Mrs. Ulrica de-Fort Menares, Director of Product Management for Cisco Medianet, told us, "An intelligent network must become more application-savvy. It must have the ability to determine the importance of a session based on its business value, and treat the session accordingly, end to end. One of the key medianet characteristics is its ability to become media-aware. Imagine this: The network can discover the type of endpoint and automatically configure the switch port for that type of device. This ability to plug and play any endpoint in the network is an example of tight integration between an intelligent network and an endpoint."

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
