Master Technician Series: A New Paradigm in Access Control

Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) is enabling better integration of security systems to support advanced applications and data encryption. OSDP could one day supplant the Wiegand standard for its ability to add significant feature sets.

Tectonic shifts in technology and applications are defining the new normal in the security marketplace. This has created a major change in focus for manufacturers and integrators alike that continue to be challenged by the frenetic pace of meshing rapidly advancing security technologies with IT/IP know-how.

In recent years, the phenomenon has pushed many organizations and other industry groups to take the lead in developing actionable security protocols that are extensible to the progressing IT-centric landscape. In short, the industry craves specifications that it can implement sooner rather than later. Case in point: physical access control systems (PACS).
