Ava Group, the security risk management services and technology specialist, will be presenting its portfolio of security solutions on Stand E74 at the International Security Expo. The Expo also hosts a range of certified conferences and workshops covering every major sector of the security industry. Taking place on 28 and 29 November at London’s Olympia, the event focuses on the needs of Government and Critical National Infrastructure (among other key sectors).
Ava Group will be showcasing the latest solutions from its technology division incorporating Future Fibre Technologies and BQT Solutions. The Group offers a portfolio of complementary solutions encompassing both fibre optic intrusion detection and high security access control and locking.
Mark Horton, global sales and marketing director for technology at the Ava Group, commented: “Our brands have a strong pedigree in some of the Expo’s key sectors including Government and CNI, and we’re very much looking forward to discussing with visitors how the Group’s solutions can be applied to protect their organisations. Ava Group has had some major project wins in recent months including a major military closed data network which has selected our data network infrastructure protection solution to secure its network against tapping and tampering. It’s projects such as this that demonstrate Ava Group’s expertise in security risk management and protection of client’s assets and infrastructure.”
Perimeter Security and Intrusion Detection
On the first morning of the exhibition, Ava Group’s CTO for technology (namely Dr Jim Katsifolis) will be presenting in the Perimeter Security and Intrusion Detection Technology Workshop on the subject of ‘Security within security in a converged perimeter intrusion detection solution’. An accomplished R&D professional, Katsifolis will explore the latest generation of perimeter intrusion detection system technologies, address the convergence of intrusion detection and cyber security and also focus on some common myths in this field.
Featured on Stand E74 will be the enhanced Aura Ai-2 controller from Future Fibre Technologies. This product offers “unrivalled” high-sensitivity detection and location accuracy, cuts resilience capability and features “the industry’s longest linear range”. New ultra-low noise optical detection electronics ensure a single controller can cover a distance up to 110 kilometres and can accurately detect, locate and report multiple disturbances to +/- 2 metres.
Ava Group is also previewing its Small Site Assurance range, which is designed to protect remote unmanned locations through an holistic security management solution. The solution incorporates intrusion detection, access control and locking as well as environmental monitoring: all controlled remotely from a simple graphical user interface. The Small Site Assurance range is particularly suited for utilities, telecoms, energy, oil and gas and Data Centre applications where there’s a threats posed by vandalism, opportunistic and targeted theft, terrorist attack, trespass, system failure, accident or injury.
High-strength locking solution
From BQT Solutions, Ava Group will be demonstrating the Orca lock. Building on the success of the award-winning YG10, the Orca lock is a high-strength lock designed for securing gates, roller doors, shipping containers and any other large door or entryway. Alongside the Orca’s impressive physical attributes, the solution can also integrate into an access control system. Fully-monitored, weatherproof and user-configurable, the Orca is said to be “the perfect indoor and outdoor locking solution”.
BQT Solutions will also demonstrate the latest software integration between its miPASS Access TMS software and Paxton’s Net2 access control software. The integration enables the seamless addition of BQT biometric readers to new or existing Net2 systems, in turn facilitating a smooth transition from less secure card technologies to more robust options like fingerprint biometrics and BQT’s own miPASS credentials.
