PSIA Demonstrates Commercial Implementation of PLAI Specification


The Physical Security Interoperability Alliance’s (PSIA) will demonstrate an important use case of its Physical Logical Access Interoperability specification (PLAI) at ASIS 2017 – Access Control.

Software House (Johnson Controls), a leader in the PACS market, will feature a commercial implementation of PLAI, including a PLAI Adapter and a PLAI Agent, integrating with a separate PACS system.

“A Fortune 50 customer expressed interest in having a visitor management system which would allow for synchronization of visitor data between two disparate PACS systems. We recognized that this use case was a perfect complement for what PLAI is designed to do,” said Jason Ouellette, Product General Manager-Access Control for Johnson Controls.

Another technology that will be demonstrated at the ASIS event will be a commercial PLAI Agent, developed by Software House.

The PLAI Agent acts as an enterprise communication hub —essentially a digital traffic controller— for information coming and going between different PACS systems.

“With commercial-grade PLAI Agents being developed, the PSIA has a complete solution for enterprise customers to adopt and implement PLAI,” said Darren Bain, Chairman of the PSIA’s PLAI working group and CTO of RightCrowd.

In addition, biometrics vendor Princeton Identity will demonstrate their iris scanning technologies, working with the PLAI implementation using their agent.

“It is becoming evident that PLAI has reached a tipping point with industry leaders investing in the technology and commercial implementations by organizations such as the U.S. Department of Justice, The Washington Post, and Corporate Executive Board (CEB) demonstrating its viability in the market. Microsoft is also incorporating PLAI into their security ecosystem and expects to rely on this for future integrations as well,” said David Bunzel, Executive Director of the PSIA.

The PSIA will be demonstrating PLAI and its capabilities related to synchronization of PACS systems and biometrics at ASIS 2017, on Wednesday September 27, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM CDT. Seating is limited so please register below.
