Cisco Makes MorphoTrack an Ecosystem Provider
Cisco has selected MorphoTrack (Safran group) as an ecosystem provider, making the company’s MorphoAccess biometric readers available as an integral component of Cisco’s IP-based access control system.
“The partnership of two best-in-class technology leaders represents a big step towards fully IP-based, biometric-enabled solutions for physical access control,” said Daniel Vassy, president and CEO of MorphoTrak. “We look forward to serving Cisco customers seeking both FIPS 201-compliant and commercial access control with this joint, top-of-the-line security solution.”
MorphoTrak’s MorphoAccess range of biometric access control devices provide a powerful, highly versatile, front-end smart reader. MorphoTrak’s hardware and software have passed rigorous testing by the National Institute of Standards and Technology for inclusion on the GSA FIPS 201 Approved Products List, as well as TSA testing for inclusion on the TWIC Initial Capabilities Evaluation List.
As the worldwide leader in IP networking, Cisco’s physical access gateway is the primary means for the Cisco physical access control solution to connect MorphoAccess biometric readers to an IP network. The gateway solution is fully scalable, from one to thousands of points, by connecting MorphoAccess input/output modules to the gateway through a Controller Area Network (CAN) bus without the need for additional Ethernet ports. The use of Cisco and MorphoTrak Power-Over-Ethernet capabilities eliminates the cost of installing additional power supplies at each reader location.
