6/19/2013 11:35:27 AM
Security is an industry in flux. While in many cases the core activities and tools haven't changed - CCTV for monitoring and alarms for perimeter protection, for instance - technology has evolved rapidly, creating new possibilities for securing businesses and their assets against theft, fire and other risks. Machine to machine (M2M) communications in particular has enabled a step change in functionality in three security applications: alarm systems, CCTV and asset tracking. This paper is specifically aimed at manufacturers and distributors of security equipment, but will also be relevant for enterprises with significant or specific in-house security needs.

Cellular Out-Of-Band Connectivity
6/11/2013 11:44:40 AM
Out-of-band access to distributed IT equipment has been crucial for enterprise customers to eliminate the need for onsite remote IT staff to handle outages. Not only does this save travel costs, but out-of-band access also reduces recovery time in the event of unplanned outages to ensure remote site productivity.
Traditionally, out-of-band access to remote sites during unplanned network outages has been accomplished using analog modem connections. This solution is secure, robust and still widely deployed throughout the world. As technology changes, the overhead for maintaining analog modem banks at a central location has become an issue for IT management. In addition, most modern laptops lack internal modems to allow for IT staff on the road or working from home to connect easily to remote sites. The cost of provisioning analog lines at both host and remote locations has increased in part due to the advent of VOIP technologies. This also creates a paradigm where remote sites rely on core switching to provide VoIP analog line access. These same core switches are the gateway for VoIP analog lines which rules out analog modem connectivity during an outage.
