"Cybersecurity is top priority"
The spectrum manager/wireless engineer at the laboratory is responsible for wireless communications and networking, including land mobile radios, paging, cell phones, in-building amplifiers, etc. Government regulations prohibit vendors from getting behind government firewalls because of security reasons and threats of viruses and trojans. This made it almost impossible for visitors to use the 50" monitor for presentations at the laboratory’s network operations center (NOC). The manager wanted to make it easier for vendors to make video presentations without tapping into the laboratory’s network.
"Cybersecurity is top priority," according to the manager. The manager started looking for a solution. He found an older video device from another vendor at the office. He tried it, but it wasn’t really what he wanted. So he began researching systems from multiple vendors, including Black Box. Having bought KVM switches, modems, and other “boxes” from Black Box in the past, the manager was familiar with the Company. After reviewing different products, he chose the Black Box VGA Wireless Video Presentation System (VPS) (AC1130A). One system, multiple uses.
The manager chose the Black Box Wireless VPS because it gives him password protection and WEP encryption, a conference administrator control function, the ability to support multiple hosts, and ease of use.
