Aperio supports Nedap’s newest AEOS system /Global/Press-and-News/News/2009/Nedap_524x224.jpg Nedap security management has recently announced that it has integrated ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio solution into their newest access control system (AEOS), bridging the gap between mechanical doors and access control systems. “Parking lots, front doors, office doors or lockers can all be managed by the same management system,” says Joffry Maltha, product Manager at Nedap. “Until now, organizations have been unable to fully benefit from everything electronic access control has to offer. In the past, secure, low-cost and easy-to-manage RFID cards have only been used for doors wired to the electronic access control system.” Aperio technology has changed that. The solution wirelessly connects mechanical doors to an existing electronic access control system, providing end users with a simple, intelligent way to raise the security level of their premises at a lower cost than traditional systems. Nedap’s security management system is a perfect platform to support Aperio products due to its open architecture and because it is based on the latest IT technology, says Eric Beaudru, VP access control marketing EMEA. “Nedap understands the technical soundness and the broad business opportunities that Aperio has to offer,” says Eric. “Thanks to great team work between Nedap engineers, Aperio escutcheons and cylinders are now cost-effective extensions of Nedap’s AEOS new 2.3 release.” Nedap’s AEOS 2.3 system is designed for dynamic security environments, such as multinational companies and organizations. Its full range of Ethernet TCP/IP and Power over Ethernet (PoE) controllers and interfaces guarantee low total cost-of-ownership. The system’s growing library of Java-based security software components also provides flexibility and a long-life span.
