CAMCO Technologies and Tideworks Technology Bring Terminal Gate Procedures to a Higher Level

(PRWEB) January 23, 2005

Tideworks Technology is the leading provider of full-service terminal management and planning software solutions for terminal operators, and CAMCO Technologies is the expert company providing innovative, market-leading Automatic Gate solutions for marine and railway terminals worldwide.

The combination of Tideworks’ GateVison™ solution with the innovative SuperGate OCR solution of Camco proved to be a very powerful offer providing a flexible, modular gate system that helps terminal operators accelerate gate activity, minimize truck processing time, and maximize user productivity.

The first results of this close collaboration are now visible with the successful implementation of this integrated solution at Pier A and Pacific Container Terminal (PCT) in Long Beach. In 2005 additional implementation projects are scheduled in Oakland and Seattle.

GateVison and SuperGate: a powerful combination

A combination of software and hardware components, GateVision effectively integrates into one user interface three key components of the gate transaction: voice communication between the trucker and the marine clerk; digital video information; and Mainsail, the Terminal Operating System (TOS). GateVision users are able to effortlessly collect truck, container, chassis and associated equipment data from the Camco SuperGate camera systems. This allows terminal operators to move marine clerks from the sometime hazardous and noisy gate lanes and place them in a safer and more comfortable office environment (often referred to as a "kitchen").

The digital cameras that are used are specifically designed and developed by Camco to capture high resolution images of containers, chassis and tractor licenses. Camco uses two different types of cameras:

Line scan cameras for scanning at high speed and resolution

the surface of the vehicle and container(s)

Area Scan camera for taking images of the front and rear of vehicles and container(s)

The captured images are used to record the exact condition of containers when entering or leaving the terminal; and to process the OCR recognition of container/ chassis codes and license plate numbers.

Every camera unit comprises not only the digital camera sensor but also an embedded computer that executes all the CPU intensive tasks (taking the image, compressing it into JPEG format, and OCR processing) making the need to install Windows-based PC’s close to the cameras obsolete and increasing the overall reliability. The OCR engines run on separate processors that communicate temporary results between each other. By using this parallel processing Camco can process the OCR of container/ chassis codes and license plates at an unparalleled speed, enabling extremely rapid truck throughput( approx. 35 Mph), and even allowing a continuous traffic flow of trucks during peak times. Trucks can drive through the OCR portals almost bumper to bumper.

Besides the speed, the OCR recognition that Camco supports is also extremely accurate, because it has a very good control over several parameters:

Quality of images. The sharper the images of the codes, the better the OCR will be. This is also one of the reasons why Camco decided to develop its own digital cameras: they need to be capable of capturing high resolution images of moving vehicles with variable speeds and in all different weather conditions (sun, rain, fog…)

Excellent speed measurement system to trigger the cameras at the exact moment

Quantity of reading spots. It is only by combining as many reading spots as possible (the container code can normally be found at 6 different locations on a container) that OCR recognition rates above 90% can effectively be reached.

It is this combination of different parameters plus the straightforward and simple design that makes the SuperGate OCR solution of Camco so powerful and accurate.

Pier A and PCT: increased gate operation capacity

In a joint effort Tideworks and Camco were able to deploy consecutively 4 (Pier A) and 7 (PCT) SuperGate OCR portals and integrate the captured data and images with GateVision and Mainsail in a very short timeframe, and with minimal interruption to the day-to-day terminal operations.

The OCR system as developed and deployed by the Tideworks-Camco partnership is proving to be the fastest in the market, with the ability to process over 500 trucks per hour, per OCR portal. The OCR system is also extremely accurate, with accuracy in excess of 98 percent and 95 percent for container number and chassis number, respectively.

Sangoma Technologies Announces Premium T1/E1/J1 Voice Support For Asterisk And Other Pc-Based Voip Projects

Toronto (PRWEB) February 23, 2005

Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSXV: STC) (, a leading provider of connectivity hardware and software products for WANs and Internet infrastructure, announces that its family of AFT (Advanced Flexible Telecommunication) T1/E1/J1 voice/data cards are now customized to work with Asterisk, the free Linux PBX software that is revolutionizing telecommunications on VoIP and conventional telephone networks.

Capable of handling both voice and data and supporting all popular open source projects including Asterisk, YATE, SIPxchange, OpenPBX and others, the A101, A102 and A104 offer a new market standard for performance, reliability, compatibility, support and ease of installation. With less demand on the host CPU, Sangoma's WANPIPE® drivers take advantage of the AFT technology to substantially reduce the processing required to handle TDM voice calls. This reduces the CPU's workload and results in fewer dropped calls, less jitter and better voice quality for callers.

"In all companies of any size, telephone connections are at least as vital as the electricity supply," says Sangoma Technologies President and CEO David Mandelstam. "For soft PBX technology to succeed, reliability and perfect voice quality have to be a given, even before a user can begin to enjoy the powerful and customizable features this technology offers. Our role in this enterprise is to provide the quality in TDM interfaces that allow the soft PBX and VoIP community to realize the potential of all their hard work and imagination."

"Sangoma's family of AFT voice/data cards enables it to offer a new price/performance standard that the competition cannot match," says Halo Kwadrat's Vice-President Michal Bielicki - Sangoma's distributor in Europe. "With Sangoma, we expect to both dominate and expand the integrated T1/E1/J1 connectivity marketplace based on their quality and unparalleled technology."

"The true promise of AFT technology lies in our ability to field upgrade not only the device driver code, but the card's FPGA firmware as we improve our TDM voice support," adds Mandelstam. "Projects already under way include hardware level PRI support and true time-slice channelization on-board. These improvements plus others related to echo and codec manipulation can be retrofitted to existing AFT hardware as they become available."

AFT card features:

·    Compatible and Flexible -- Sangoma's voice/data cards are self-sensing for 3.3v and 5v PCI slots and software configurable for T1, E1 or J1. They share interrupts properly between themselves and other PCI compatible devices, supporting unlimited numbers of cards per PC chassis. The AFT series cards all conform to the 2U form factor, both in height and length, allowing users to install many cards in a slimline 2U chassis so as to maximize server capacity.

·     Rock Solid Data Modes -- In mixed voice/data installations, the data streams are separated out in hardware and handled completely independently of the voice channels by Sangoma's standard WANPIPE® data handlers that have been carrying IP traffic for many years. Only the voice-related traffic gets diverted to the Asterisk system. The result is a system that is totally reliable, fast and well managed, while the CPU load is drastically reduced.

·    Certification -- Certification compliance is critical to every Sangoma customer. All Sangoma voice/data cards have undergone CE, FCC part 15 and FCC Part 68 certification, and every board is properly marked.

·    Sangoma Trust and Quality -- As part of its commitment to quality assurance, each Sangoma card is individually inspected and burned-in prior to shipment in protective anti-static wrap complete with cables, manuals and CDs. The result is a very low dead-on-arrival rate and high reliability in service.

Sangoma Technologies' current solution set includes:

·    WANPIPE® internal media gateways, transporting TDM voice, IP data and video over T3/E3, T1/E1, ADSL and serial links ·    High performance and reliable communications modules for OEM projects involving ATM, Frame Relay, X.25, SS7, HDLC, BiSync and other protocols . The WAN Edukit™ protocol teaching tool for educational institutions ·    POS (Point-of-Sale) interface cards for security and customer loyalty applications

About Sangoma Technologies Corporation Founded in 1984, Sangoma develops and manufactures wide area network (WAN) communication hardware and software products, with an emphasis on the PC platform. The communications solutions, voice, data and video gateways support all popular WAN networks, line protocols and all standard PC operating systems and platforms including Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, Sun Solaris, NetWare and DOS. Sangoma Technologies Corporation is publicly traded on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV: STC - News).

Emergency Response Times Accelerated Using iolo technologies System Mechanic

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2010

iolo technologies announced today a critical implementation of System Mechanic Business in Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District (GRLFPD), which provides emergency response across six municipalities and parts of Lake County, Illinois. Recently, improving emergency response efficiency has become an important focus based on lessons learned during the Haiti and Chile earthquake rescue efforts, and organizations across the country are searching for the best solutions to improve disaster preparedness. By ensuring GRLFPDs computerized response and communications systems are running at peak operational performance and stability, the award-winning PC tune-up software for small and mid-sized organizations helps improve the fire departments response times and streamline decision efficiency made under life-threatening conditions.

Protecting nearly 60,000 residents in 16 square miles, GRLFPDs three firehouses run round-the-clock shifts every day of the year, operated by 65 staff and firefighter/paramedics. The department uses 50 Windows XP Professional PCs (17 of which are mobile) to run firehouse applications, business software, and dispatch operations. To accommodate varying shift personnel and response situations, some PCs may have up to 50 individual user profiles and each computer has access to all response-related information such as district maps, site-specific plans, HazMat storage, and the internet. With tightened budgets, the departments focus is on improving the speed and performance of existing PCs and thus extending their usable life cycle, rather than resorting to a complete hardware change-out.

In emergency response situations, every piece of equipment is expected to be immediately available and function properly. Our technology has to meet the same criteria. A few extra minutes spent pulling up a map of the fire location online can mean more burned property and lost lives, said Doug Lawson, administrative officer and IT manager for GRLFPD. While sticking to our budget, System Mechanic made an immediate and noticeable performance difference to the people who matter most my user community. Without me saying anything, firefighters would ask: wow, what did you do to the computer? System Mechanic bought us more time with our existing PCs and we are not forced to make the jump immediately to another operating system.

iolos System Mechanic, the #1 best-selling PC tune-up software in the US, Canada, France, Italy and the Benelux countries, was first tested on an older model worst-case-scenario PC with minimal RAM and a slower CPU. After delivering a significant performance improvement, System Mechanic was installed on all departmental machines. Following the implementation, the Windows XP machines continue to operate in a fast manner and are deemed to sufficiently meet the needs of the department. System Mechanics automation of many routine maintenance tasks also helps the department save additional time.

There are lots of tools, registry cleaners and tune-up applications on the market, but System Mechanic does exactly what it says it will, and with iolos regular product updates I have confidence that it will address new issues that may come up, said Lawson. System Mechanic is one of the best investments in an application we have ever made and would be the absolute last item to cut from my IT budget.

With more than 40 advanced tools, a range of options for novice and expert users alike, and industry-first Tune-Up Definitions, which deliver weekly updates on how to resolve the latest causes of PC slowdowns, System Mechanic is used to maximize the performance of more than 70 million computers worldwide. System Mechanic Business supports both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows XP, Windows 7 and Vista and works on netbooks, laptops and desktops. System Mechanic Business starts at $ 79.95 for a 5 PC commercial license, and offers incremental volume discounts to accommodate virtually any installation size. It is available directly from iolo at, as well as many online and retail stores.
