The two companies will work together to market, promote, sell, deliver and maintain PSIM projects in the US.

Tony Varco, Vice President, Security Division at Convergint Technologies, commented “We have long recognised the need for products that integrate, manage and aggregate multiple subsystems into a central command and control platform. We are now beginning to see an increase in the adoption of this technology. It is a great time to be part of this move toward more intelligent physical security solutions.”

“In today's environment, issues faced by security professionals are both challenging and complex. Convergint Technologies has a history of making a daily difference with clients by building trust and creating integrated solutions that can change in line with client requirements, which is essential in a PSIM deployment.”

“The United States is home to some of the largest and most complex PSIM deployments in the world, and we are pleased to say that CNL Software has been a major contributor to this. The PSIM momentum continues, and we are now seeing these solutions becoming the norm in large scale security deployments.” says Matthew Kushner, CNL President, Americas. “Our partnership with Convergint will help move this technology further into enterprise wide clients, with a particular focus on corporate projects.”

How to deliver adequate power to security devices in industrial sites

With security found in more and more industrial settings, advanced and heavy-duty network devices are needed on the edge to make implementations effective. Amid this trend, the first major challenge is to deliver enough power to these devices. Increasingly, traditional PoE standards, IEEE 802.3af/at that deliver 15.4W and 30W of power, are proving insufficient in this regard. A hardened 60W PoE switch, on the other hand, can better the power supply needs of industrial users.

How will Brexit affect the security industry?

As the United Kingdom starts to follow through with the necessary steps to leave the European Union (EU), there could be a number of consequences that filter through to security industry stakeholders. In theory, according to Jim Dearing of IHS Markit who has taken a look at the potential impact, in the short-term the market outlook for 2016 and 2017 should be relatively unaffected.

The U.K. has yet to activate Article 50, which instigates the formal procedure to leave the EU. Only the U.K. Prime Minister can invoke Article 50 to begin the negotiation process, which is expected to take around two years to complete.
