The ipAssured Education Zone is an exclusive area where a team of experts will offer presentations on leading industry trends.

Based on results from testing conducted in Anixter’s Infrastructure Solutions Lab, the ipAssured Education Zone programme will demonstrate an open migration path from analogue to IP that is both scalable and interoperable.

For installers and integrators, the sessions will focus on the potential of IP for their businesses, and the tools required to achieve that potential. These include maintaining market knowledge, image quality, interoperability, standards, preconfigured product solutions and continued education.

For end-users, business drivers and trends towards the convergence of physical and IT security will be examined, including looking at compliance with regulations and standards, and return on investment and implementation efficiency. There will also be sessions dedicated to plotting the most successful migration from an analogue to IP system.

Security professionals without a working knowledge of IP- based systems and products are at risk of being left behind in the rapidly evolving security marketplace.

To help visitors safeguard their future business, IFSEC International 2012 is hosting an extensive IP education awareness programme making it the most important destination for discussion and debate on the future of electronic security.

“It’s crucial that both security installers and end-users are as familiar with IP and networked security technologies as possible” says Charlie Cracknell, IFSEC International’s event director.

“ We’ve seen reports suggesting that the

US security market has already reached its tipping point in terms of greater numbers of IP security products being sold than analogue, and while there is definitely still a place for analogue in legacy systems, the future is, inevitably, on the network.

As part of this IP education drive, IFSEC International 2012 will see the debut of the ipAssured Education Zone, presented by Anixter.


As an example of the importance of IP knowledge in the marketplace, one of the industry’s biggest distributors, Norbain, reports that its IP product portfolio has grown by nearly 50% since IFSEC 2011.

At this year’s show, Norbain will be talking with visitors about system design for IP and integrated network security systems. The focus will be on how to design a complete system across multiple brands and solutions rather than on individual pieces of kit.

There will be an emphasis on wireless, remote and mobile connectivity to demonstrate what’s possible with IP and the opportunities that network video affords installers, and integration across CCTV, access control and intruder systems will be demonstrated.

Norbain will also be running a seminar on how IP technology has changed the way we store data.

At the IFSEC International Centre Stage feature, a session on ‘Convergence and the future of security’ will look at the way organisations are combining physical and logical security, and discuss whether end user purchasers are really buying into the convergence and integration agenda.

A big player in electronic security products in recent years, Samsung is planning to take the fear out of embracing technology changes.

Its stand will feature interactive product demonstration areas where visitors will be able to try out the latest IP and network video surveillance and access control technologies. Honeywell’s ‘Technical Support Clinic’ will also offer advice on IP and integration.
