Mobile Alert System
Made specifically for education use, the Sielox Class Crisis Lockdown Alert Status System provides real-time, classroom status updates and can notify campus leaders and first responders via graphical maps, email, and text messaging. Faculty and staff can send out color-coded alerts that indicate specific types of emergencies (such as medical problems or violence) through networked devices or push buttons. Law enforcement and first responders can view floor plans in real-time, with updates automatically displayed on their mobile phone, tablet, or patrol car laptop. www.sielox.com

IdentityConnect, an identity-based, device registration solution from Impulse Point, helps deploy and maintain BYOD management. It is able to automatically identify personal devices connecting to the network and associate the user’s identity to newly assigned IP addresses. IdentityConnect can associate a single user to their multiple devices, applying bandwidth allocation or firewall settings by user and across all their devices. The software can identify users using a variety of device types, such as Windows, OS X, iOS, or Android, and it automatically self-enrolls guests to network access. www.impulse.com
