Paige Wireless | July 29, 2022
Paige Wireless is solving fundamental problems amplified by aged critical infrastructure by providing affordable, reliable, and accessible solutions that leverage the Internet of Things (IoT), advanced sensor technology, and the largest carrier-grade LoRaWAN network in North America. The company maintains its leadership position by helping customers tackle current and future challenges often not addressed by solutions providers.
Over the past few months, governments, businesses, and citizens have grappled with new internal and external threats. Paige Wireless exemplifies the standards that should be required to connect critical infrastructure; setting the standard for redundancy, network up-time, and security. They have incorporated several architectural methods and countermeasures to ensure consistent, dependable service.
"Working with customers, I see firsthand how Paige Wireless is integral to critical systems that affect people like the producers we rely on to provide us nutritious and safe food and the water professionals we depend on to deliver the most critical resource for life, We are committed to maintaining the highest standards so that the critical infrastructure our society depends on is resilient, redundant, and secure."
Julie Bushell, President
While many communities in America are struggling with aged infrastructure, some are implementing new technology and seeing results. Water District 63 in Idaho saw the potential for IoT, LoRaWAN®, and advanced sensor technology to change the way they serve the surrounding communities. In a recent case study, the Water District was able to increase efficiency and save water thanks to a partnership between Paige Wireless and Cisco. They estimate water savings of 9,000-15,000 acre-feet within a six-month season or nearly 32 Olympic-sized swimming pools of water per day. The District now has real-time data to make regular adjustments to the system, leading to significant daily savings.
To support critical infrastructure, Paige Wireless has built highly redundant cybersecurity protocols that include both an intrusion detection system (IDS) and an intrusion prevention system (IPS). There is also end-to-end data encryption using cryptographically-secure keys and encryption algorithms; additional sophistication allows only authorized users to have access.
Secure software-enabled access to all network elements is a key benefit for critical infrastructure, as Paige Wireless seeks to help customers predict emergencies and increase resilience. For added reassurance, the company provides 24/7 active monitoring of the entire network infrastructure.
"We are driving innovation in communities, on farms, along waterways, and across North America," said Bushell. "Paige Wireless will maintain market leadership in IoT and LoRaWAN as we continue to expand our offerings and our network."

Dahua Technology | June 18, 2022
Dahua Technology, a world-leading video-centric smart IoT solution and service provider, officially launched the Full-color Smart Dual Illuminators Camera Series. The new Full-color Series integrates two illuminators – warm light and infrared light – with three supplementary light modes to deliver clear and vivid full-color images while avoiding continuous use of warm light, providing a flexible solution for a variety of night and low-light monitoring scenarios.
“Crimes are often committed at night, so a surveillance system must be able to capture color images of events as evidence for investigation. To do that, warm light is necessary, but constant use of warm light can disturb other residents. That’s why we developed the Full-color Smart Dual Illuminators Camera, with which users can have the best of both worlds,”
Eaden Xie, IP Camera Product Director at Dahua Technology
Adopting deep learning algorithm to accurately detect targets, the Dahua Full-color Smart Dual Illuminators Camera can intelligently switch between the IR mode when there is no target in the scene and Full-color mode when a target is detected. It allows users to record full-color events without contributing to light pollution. Moreover, the illumination mode of the Smart Dual Illuminators can also be adjusted on the DMSS app with a single click, enabling users to remotely manage the device, view the monitored scene and receive timely alarm notifications at anytime, anywhere.
Thanks to its deep learning algorithms, the new Full-color Smart Dual Illuminators Camera also supports AI applications such as SMD Plus, Perimeter Protection and Quick Search, making it easier for users to focus on real threats. In addition, its Smart Codec technology provides a lower bit rate and helps decrease storage costs.
This series is ideal for applications where full-color videos are necessary but don’t need constant use of warm light, such as residential areas, villas, retail stores, schools, hospitals, parks, etc. It is also suitable for indoor scenarios (e.g. corridors and hallways) where lighting is insufficient, and other scenarios that require constant warm light, such as parking lots and streets.
In the future, Dahua Smart Dual Illuminators IP cameras will be equipped with Illumination by Schedule. This function allows different illumination modes to be set according to different time slots to customize the user's own protection plan.
