Convergint joins Splinternet for radiation detector distribution

Splinternet : 18 June, 2008  (Company News)
North American distributor joins resellers of Defentect radiation detection network for protection against radiation dispersal devices
Splinternet Holdings has announced that Convergint Technologies has been named a VAR for the integration and installation of Splinternet's Defentect gamma radiation detection network in the private and public sectors.

The companies will install unattended perimeter and portal radiation detection systems in public facilities, transportation infrastructures and hospitals to build safeguards against the risk of a Dirty Bomb attack.

Convergint Technologies recently was recognised as the 10th largest systems integrator in North America by SDM Magazine. Convergint designs, installs and services electronic security solutions for industrial and government customers. Its physical security solutions include enterprise card access, IP Video management, intelligent video, intercom, biometrics, perimeter protection, smartcard credential management, physical/logical convergence and seamless integration to enterprise applications such as HR databases. Convergint was named the top IP Video security integrator by Axis Communications, a world leader in IP network camera technology, for design, implementation and servicing of IP Video solutions. Convergint also creates and installs dedicated wired and wireless mesh physical security networks.

Splinternet's Defentect intelligent threat awareness architecture is a homeland security technology that communicates data from perimeter or portal radiological sensors to an incident command centre as well as to PDAs, cellphones or pagers. When high-energy gamma rays from Dirty Bomb substances interact with Splinternet's GammaTect sensors, proprietary algorithms analyse the data and alert authorities to radiation that may pose a security threat.

"Customers are seeking the added security of unattended radiation detection sensor networks, which Splinternet supplies," said Dan Moceri, CEO of Convergint Technologies. "Our relationship allows us to offer new homeland security protection systems to our clients."

"Radiological dispersal devices are seen to be a serious challenge to security, in part due to the accessibility of a range of radioactive materials commonly used in healthcare and industry," said James Ackerly, CEO of Splinternet. "Our partnership with Convergint enables clients to amplify their security solutions by integrating defensive technologies."
