ONVIF to discuss single operational interface for converging systems at Intersec

Together with participating member companies, ONVIF (the global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products) will be present at Intersec 2020, which runs from 19-21 January in Dubai, to demonstrate interoperability between products using ONVIF Profiles.

Attendees will be able to see demonstrations of interoperability between different manufacturers’ products using various ONVIF Profiles.

ONVIF executives are also participating in a number of presentations describing the standardised approach to security as part of the Intersec Future Security Summit 2020, to be held in the Al Multaqua Ballroom at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Per Björkdahl, chair of the ONVIF Steering Committee, will participate in a panel discussion entitled ‘Enterprise Security: Challenges for New Age Security Managers’. Running on Monday 20 January at The Intersec Arena, this discussion will focus on developing, implementing and maintaining resilient programmes in complex operating environments. It’s also set to touch upon the need for flexible, simple and modular integrated systems.

Also participating in the panel will be Joule Sullivan, director of international security operations for Abbott, and David Young (CEO at Oxford Analytica).

“Interoperability between disparate devices and systems will continue to fuel innovation and provide valuable intelligence for sophisticated enterprise environments,” said Björkdahl. “ONVIF is focused on continuing to provide new and innovative interoperability solutions to the industry in order to help it advance.”

Also on 20 January, Stuart Rawling ( head of segment marketing at Pelco and an ONVIF Steering Committee member) will present on the topic ‘Converging Systems into One Operational Interface to Improve the Security, Intelligence and Oversight of Shopping Centres and Retail Parks’. Attendees will learn how using a standardised interface for security systems will mitigate risk, provide scaleability and aid in capitalising on business opportunities.
