DPCF Pavilion News from Miami

An exciting new addition to ITEXPO East 2008, was the Disaster Planning Communication Forum (DPCF) Pavilion, which provided a cost-effective location to showcase products, particularly new releases. Two recent product releases displayed in the pavilion are covered below.

Interview with Craig Steen, President of IgeaCare, USA, Inc.

RT & MS: Why did IgeaCare exhibit at the DPCF Pavilion?

CS: One reason we joined the forum is that we identified it as an opportunity to educate ourselves and the public about the growing need for advanced business continuity applications and services. Our market thrust is focused on 3 areas: municipal governments, educational institutions and healthcare providers.

RT & MS: You introduced a new product, The Campus Alert which is an add-on module to your flagship product The Emergency e-Response system. What was the attendee reaction?

CS: The response was great, particularly with educational institutions having prior experience in this area. Camus Alert addresses 3 critical areas for first responders to manage an emergency:

• Establish a plan that integrates the institution, law enforcement and the community.

• Intelligent and structured execution of the plan by zone.

• Full real-time auditing and reporting.

Interview with Marc Bielinski, Senior Systems Engineer, A2000 Network Solutions, Inc.

RT & MS: What was the primary reason for exhibiting in the DPCF Pavilion?

MB: The primary goal was to showcase our new T1, E1, or DS3 failover switch for the carrier services market place.

RT & MS: How was the product received by the attendees?

MB: We experienced terrific aisle traffic interest regarding switching capabilities for true “Hands Off” T1/E1/DS3 movement of services in the event of a primary equipment failure. ITEXPO allowed us to demonstrate the features and functionality of the failover switch to potential “new” customers and discuss how it would benefit them in their network designs. In fact, we received a lot of attention from other exhibitors interested in integrating our solution with their products. Frankly, our products address a unique market application for business continuity and failover.
