Antaira Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of industrial networking devices and communication solutions for harsh environment applications and is proud to announce the expansion of its industrial networking infrastructure family with the introduction of the LMP-0702G-SFP-V2 and LMX-0702G-SFP-V2 series.

The new hardware update will be known as ‘V2’. The affected switches are listed below:

  • LMP-0702G-SFP(-T)-V2
  • LMP-0702G-SFP-24(-T)-V2
  • LMX-0702G-SFP(-T)-V2

Ethernet ring protection switching

The new Version Two (V2) hardware delivers more horsepower under the hood allowing an entirely new operating system to be installed. With the new operating system comes a long list of new features that bring these smaller switches up to the same feature set as the larger port count Antaira Ethernet switches.

Using an open standard for the ring allows a customer to not be trapped by a proprietary protocol

Two of the newest and important key features are multi-ring Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) and access control lists. ERPS​ is an open standard used for creating redundant link rings. Ring technology helps prevent system outages by creating multiple paths allowing data to make it to its destination even when a link has failed. Using an open standard for the ring allows a customer to not be trapped by a proprietary protocol.

Open standard ring technology

Allowing a mixture of manufacturers’ products to be used in an application can also create the best solution. Network security has become increasingly important, while no one feature can assure a secure network, layers of features provide the best security.​ Access control​ lists make sure data can get to where it needs to go but all other traffic is blocked.

Minimizing how data traffic flows on a network is an important step to securing any network. The new access control lists available with the new V2 hardware will allow an administrator to control this traffic and begin to secure the network. Antaira Technologies’ ​LMX-0702G-SFP-V2 Series​ managed Ethernet switch series is an ideal choice for Ethernet ring solutions with its two fiber optic ports supporting an open standard ring technology (ERPS).

Wide temperature-Rated device

These devices are able to communicate and send critical information back to an enterprise switch

With the new LMX-0702G-SFP’s smaller port count now added to the Antaira family of industrial switches, even applications requiring fewer ports have a solution that is the right fit. For example, campuses have networking rings consisting of hardened and industrial switches for outdoor environments that require a wide temperature-rated device.

These devices are able to communicate and send critical information back to an enterprise switch at a data center. Antaira’s ​LMP-0702G-SFP-V2 Series​ industrial PoE switch can not only provide PoE ports (30 Watts) for security applications, but also fiber optic interfaces for long-range connectivity (1 meter to 100 KM), that is, from 3 feet to over 60 miles.

The SFP port will not only allow connectivity beyond the 100 meter/300-foot limitation of copper cable but also permits connectivity through areas where electromagnetic interference may cause issues found on factory floors. ​LMP-0702G-SFP-24-V2 series​ has the same features and specs as the ​LMP-0702G-SFP-V2​ except for the switch power input supports 12~48VDC which is ideal for applications where only 24 volts of DC power is readily available such as automation applications.

Visual AI Company AnyVision Changes its Name to Oosto
Visual AI Company AnyVision Changes its Name to Oosto

AnyVision announced today that the company will change its name to Oosto. The new name reflects the company’s evolution and vision for the future which is shaped, in part, by a new collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) CyLab Biometric Research Center. The CMU partnership will focus on early-stage research in object, body, and behavior recognition. Vision AI Oosto CEO, Avi Golan remarks, "Historically, the company has focused on security-related use cases for our watchlist alerting and touchless access control solutions. With the launch of Oosto, we’re looking beyond the lens of security to include ways our solutions can positively impact an organization’s safety, productivity and customer experience.” AnyVision pioneered Vision AI to automate watchlist alerting, identifying security risks as well as valuable customers in real-time to personalize customer experiences and enhance physical security. The rebranded Oosto will leverage the power of Vision AI to enhance the safety of customers, guests, and employees. Solutions include touchless access control, video analytics, and new flavors of video-based recognition (object, body, and behavioral recognition), which deliver the insights and alerts to protect pivotal stakeholders from bad actors and security threats. Partnership with CyLab Biometric Research Center The company’s research partnership with Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) CyLab Biometric Research Center will focus on advanced object classification and behavior recognition algorithms for commercial use cases. This collaboration will help Oosto address a broad range of safety-related use cases, including object detection (e.g., weapons on school grounds) and behavioral analysis (e.g., when someone falls down). As part of the partnership, Marios Savvides, a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and founder and director of the Biometrics Center at CMU, will join Oosto as the Chief AI Scientist to expand Oosto’s AI team led by CTO, Dieter Joecker. “We were impressed by Oosto's commitment to the fair and ethical use of the technology, preserving user privacy, and creating safer spaces for everyone,” said Professor Marios Savvides. “These shared values make Oosto an ideal research partner for CMU to advance object, body, and behavioral recognition and to positively impact our collective safety.” Long histoy in artificial intelligence Over the past 10 years, more than 400 startups linked to CMU have raised more than $7 billion in funding. CMU has a long history in artificial intelligence including the creation of the first AI computer program in 1956 and pioneering work in self-driving cars, facial recognition, and natural language processing. ECE Professor Marios Savvides was named one of the “2020 Outstanding Contributors to AI” awards from the former U.S. Secretary of the Army. His research has been focused on developing core AI and machine-learning algorithms that were successfully applied for robust face detection, face recognition, iris biometrics, and most recently, general object detection and scene understanding. Savvides has generated over 35 patents and patent publications, and over 50 unpublished patent applications to date. "Under the leadership of Prof. Savvides, CMU’s CyLab Biometric Research Center has an impressive track record of successfully transferring AI research out of a lab environment and into reliable and scalable solutions," added Golan. "Visual intelligence is in its infancy and there is so much more work yet to be done. With this partnership, we now have an elite U.S.-based AI research center that will work in concert with our existing AI teams to accelerate the development of advanced deep learning algorithms and exploration of new safety-related use cases, markets, and industries, including medical, payments, and smart cities.” As part of these corporate rebranding efforts, the company is also renaming its products to OnWatch (formerly A Better Tomorrow), OnAccess (formerly Abraxas), and OnPatrol.

How Well Do Systems Meet Video Surveillance Needs In Prisons?

Keeping prisoners safely housed is among the biggest challenges the security industry faces. Correctional applications of security technology are often more extreme and require a specialized mix of technologies. We asked our Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the video security and surveillance needs in prisons, and how well do technologies meet those needs? Are there any ethical qualms about selling to prisons?
