JULY/AUGUST ACCESS CONTROL TRENDS AND TECHNOLOGY 2018 S-9 Interoperability Brings New Functionality to Multi-Supplier Access Control ONVIF works with vendor community to drive standards and technology innovation By Bob Dolan T he need for interoperability, which enables dif- ferent types of devices or technologies to com- municate with one another, is certainly nothing new in our industry. It has paved the way for technological developments, while at the same time ensuring future-proof products. Most importantly, it has been a catalyst in guiding newer trends, such as AI and IoT, into maturity. As new technologies reach this crucial point where standardization is necessary for seamless integrations, we further see the need for open standards and cooperation within the market. Due to the proprietary way that access control security components have historically been designed and manufactured, achieving interoperability between different manufacturers' products hasn't always been easy.
