NextAlarm Announces Support for Two-Way Voice Monitoring

NextAlarm announced at The Cable Show support for two-way voice monitoring. NextAlarm’s two-way voice service, unlike that of other alarm companies, is compatible with VoIP and digital phone service. NextAlarm offers this feature for a minimal surcharge.

Using NextAlarm’s patented Alarm Broadband Network – the industry’s first low-cost broadband solution for security system monitoring – two-way voice gives subscribers many advantages. For example, when an alarm system sends a signal, two-way voice makes it possible to patch in a dispatcher who can listen in on the home through microphones in the keypads and/or speak through the keypads and pass information on to authorities. In addition, anyone at the site can easily speak with the dispatcher without having to reach for a telephone. This is especially helpful in the event of a medical emergency.

ABN allows customers to enjoy the benefits and cost savings of VoIP service, while still allowing their alarm systems to accurately communicate with monitoring centers. ABN operates over a standard cable adapter or DSL connection and works with any alarm system capable of sending signals using the contact ID format. In addition, ABN requires no changes to a subscriber’s existing alarm system. All a subscriber has to do is simply plug the ABN adapter into their home network and plug their alarm panel into the adapter rather than into a regular phone line.

VoIP a High-Tech Way to Protect Your Home

After a fun-filled vacation at the beach, on the slopes or visiting relatives, the last thing families want to do is come home to a ransacked, burglarized house. According to the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association, each year nearly 5 million families become victims of household burglary, often when they’ve been on vacation.

“There are simple, lo-tech things that homeowners should do to protect their home while on vacation – from stopping their newspaper delivery to keeping lights on,” says Jim Johnson, CEO of uControl, an advanced home security service. “But for homeowners who want greater assurances and protection, there are some hi-tech, yet very affordable, products that provide better security and more control for homeowners.”

Johnson says homeowners should consider installing an advanced home security system that provides redundant, back-up connections for always-on monitoring of their home security system. New security systems don’t rely on a phone line for connectivity, but instead use broadband and cellular connections. New alarm services not only monitor your home, but they also monitor the connection from your home to the alarm monitoring center, alerting homeowners when a telephone line is cut or the broadband connection goes down.

Sipera Strengthens Enterprise VoIP Security

Sipera Systems debutes the Sipera IPCS 410 and the IPCS 510 for the enterprise. These platforms support new VoIP VPN capabilities for encrypted signaling, encrypted media and strong two-factor authentication. Both the IPCS 410 and 510 also offer VoIP Firewall/Border Control functionality to enable enterprises to solve firewall/NAT issues and apply granular signaling, media and security policies to every VoIP, IM and multimedia session based on network, user, device and time of day.

Sipera Unified Communications Policies characterize each call flow and create actions to allow, deny, or apply routing and security functionality to each session. With this capability, enterprises can deploy soft phones, VoIP remote users, WiFi/dual-mode phones, SIP Trunks and Click-to-Talk applications without compromising established security policies. The inherent flexibility and power of this framework also lowers TCO by minimizing expensive network changes; provides redundancy and cost-savings with flexible call routing; and transfers control back to enterprise IT managers for all real-time unified communications.

Partners Combine VoIP and Internet Security

text-partnership.jpgNatural Convergence announced a partnership with BorderWare Technologies. The partners are working together to provide simple, scalable security solutions tailored for service providers to target the Small Business Market.

According to Eastern Management Group, in the United States there are 32 million key systems, with the average age of key systems being 12 years. This means that key systems are ripe for replacement and a replacement wave is quickly gaining momentum in the SBM.

As there are different types of service providers who are beginning to address the huge and largely underserved SBM, a one-size-fits-all approach neither works for small businesses nor for service providers. Regardless of the size of service provider, solutions must be reliable and secure and, more importantly, must fit each of their deployment models.

Eyeball Releases AnyFirewall Engine for VoIP

eyeballlogoweb.gifEyeball releases AnyFirewall Engine, a firewall and NAT traversal SDK that incorporates the most comprehensive implementation of STUN, TURN and ICE. Together with AnyFirewall Server, AnyFirewall Engine ensures 100% seamless call completion for VoIP phones, services and applications.

The growth of the Internet has created a global shortage of IP addresses. ISPs, enterprises and home routers bypass this problem by using Network Address Translation (NAT) to hide many private addresses behind one single public address, which interferes with VoIP calls.
