BCDVideo’s Titan Networking Series utilizes Avaya Fabric Connect to offer a simpler way. Fundamentally different from complex and static IP networks, Fabric Connect enables a dynamic, agile, and resilient network where services can be deployed at the edge only. Customers can streamline their network, eliminate legacy protocols (Spanning Tree and any PIM-based protocol,) and enable IP routing.
IP-based video products are overtaking analog-based video products. However, the majority of networks rely on antiquated protocols – resulting in long camera re-convergence times and scalability restrictions. IP multicast routing relies on Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) being enabled on all devices throughout the network which is complex, cumbersome, and limited. New deployments can take weeks to implement.
According to ZK Research, 75% of video surveillance issues are attributed to the underlying network. Most of these issues have been found to be improper network support. The only option available to the video surveillance industry was expensive, complicated, and in many cases, low-performing multicast networking systems. Traditionally, a certified networking technician would be required to setup the network. BCDVideo and Avaya are delivering superior performance and simplicity to IP video security. Network performance is critical to any IP video surveillance system, the full performance video surveillance technology is realized with BCDVideo’s Titan Networking Series, powered by Avaya.

EMPLOYEE BADGES AND VISITOR IDS
As demonstrated, while security managers are right to question the security of mobile access systems, this technology has proven itself very capable of standing up to security threats to buildings. Being able to offer multiple security layers, dynamically responding to security issues, inspiring employees to better protect physical architecture and being on the cusp of new security developments, mobile access is a secure choice for any businesses’ building access control system.
The culture of security
Mobile access control systems also create a culture of security even if your employees do not realise it. With a card or token access to buildings and on-site premises staff are effectively burdened with the responsibility of constantly carrying an additional item, one they would not carry normally. As such, if their card is lost or stolen they are less likely to notice it and hence slower to report it. This leaves your physical infrastructure vulnerable, with a valid card potentially falling into the wrong hands. Conversely, an employee instantly feels more attached to their mobile devices, so if a phone is lost or stolen, it is reported right away and the mobile ID can be immediately revoked.
Transmission between a mobile device and the access control reader
When access is granted to an employee to enter a building, the transaction between the app on the mobile device and the access control reader is independent of the communication protocol in use. Transmission over-the-air via NFC or Bluetooth Smart to issue the key is protected by the latest technology and cannot be stolen when authorising access over-the-air. The device and reader both use high-security cryptographic communication techniques to prove to the other that it is trustworthy. Furthermore, no Bluetooth pairing is required between reader and device, as only eligible devices can interact.
Mobile IDs cannot be manipulated
Mobile identities must be signed and encrypted to prevent manipulation. All mobile identities and user information should therefore be protected in a secure vault provided by hardware security modules, where all encryption keys are stored and used in cryptographic operations. Looking at mobile IDs, hey are stored in the app operating sandbox, an area within the device, which has been designed for the storage of sensitive information. The information that is stored is encrypted, so it cannot be cloned or stolen via unauthorised access to the phone. Mobile IDs are not transferrable, but specific to the device they have been issued to. Each Mobile ID is unique per device.
Mobile credentials are based on the latest technology advancements
It is paramount that encryption methods have met stringent security criteria. A secure mobile access system will typically have security protocols that are certified by credible independent institutions. For example, Suite B Cryptography algorithms, Advanced Encryption Standards (AES), namely, AES-128 and Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) by the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST). A mobile access system that is standards-based and complies with these rigid security protocols incorporating secure messaging, and strong authentication will result in providing peace of mind to security managers that their employees’ data will remain confidential.
Rarely misplaced and consistently in hand, the mobile device has become the most valued technology we own. However, as a recent trend report by IFSEC Global revealed, almost 80% of security managers surveyed feared that integrating mobile access solutions into their physical access control architecture might actually increase system vulnerability.
So what are the major concerns for security managers?

6. Monitor power consumption
Understand the power consumption in the building and therefore be aware when there is any unusual ‘heavy’ loading and why. If the simple steps are followed by those responsible for fire safety management the risk of an electrical ignition leading to fire
will be significant reduced.
5. Provide adequate
Eliminate multi-plug adaptors and extension leads by providing enough sockets. Extension leads are a temporary measure (1 week max) and one electrical plug per socket is an effective policy - combined with good cable management to eliminate leads being damaged by wear and tear (i.e trolleys).
4. Thermography audits
It is now commonplace for thermographic surveys to be undertaken in building to spot electrical equipment and connections that are overheating and failing. Using specialist cameras that detect infra-red heat, thermography is a valuable tool to prevent electrical fires.
3. Audit portable equipment
Carry out regular audits of portable electrical equipment and remove anything that is unsuitable or damaged. Have a clear policy of what can and cannot be brought into the building and plugged into the system; especially heating and catering equipment (i.e. blower heaters and toasters)
2. Know the system
Ensure a firm understanding of the electrical distribution system within the building and business. When was it fitted? Are there original schematic diagrams? Has the system been altered and amended? What are the system protection components – how do they work?
Make sure that the person charged with maintaining the power systems and electrical integrity is competent and has the appropriate technical qualifications. Allow only competent people to maintain the electrical equipment, including contractors. Make competency part of any preferred contractor selection criteria.
