Recently I had two overwhelming experiences in Mexico City:
the crazy traffic (that’s another blog post on its own), and Expo Seguridad, where I was caught up in all things security. And
when I say “all things,” I mean ALL things.
CLICK TO TWEET: CommScope's Kris Kozamchak highlights how proper fiber connectivity is important for security.
Near the registration desk was a stand that had accessories
for a security business, whether that be holsters, boots, body armor or
protective clothing. Inside, I saw everything – building entry security
products, airport body and item scanners, facial recognition software,
handcuffs, military vehicles and a virtual reality demo used to prepare and
respond to crisis situations. The one thing almost every vendor had in common
was video. It was everywhere!
My main reason for going to Expo as part of my Mexico City
trip was to visit a couple of CommScope’s partners, Anixter and CDC Group, as
they highlighted the benefits of powered
fiber cable to connect video for security.
Both companies told me that looking around at all the video,
this was the right message to the right audience. Video is king in security.
But the challenge for implementing video can be distance limitations, power
availability and device placement. People coming by our partners’ booths were
interested to hear about a solution that could address these concerns.
After visiting with our partners and walking the floor some
more, I left with an appreciation for the challenges and the solutions that
each vendor was presenting. From tricked-out police vehicles to fake soda
bottles to hide your valuables, security is a big industry and I’m glad
CommScope has a part to play.
Leave me a comment about your security struggles.
