American Tower selects Sera4 for Latin America Perimeter Security

Sera4 has announced that they are equipping American Tower Corporation sites in Latin America with their Teleporte access control solution and AP3 Armoured Padlock for perimeter access control at sites throughout Latin America. The Teleporte solution, together with Sera4 padlocks and controllers, provide a truly keyless access management solution, solving a longstanding operational issue regarding physical keys. Locks can be opened securely through anyone’s modern mobile phone and the identity of the person entering the site is automatically recorded.

Sera4 AP3 padlocks are designed for outdoor use at remote sites. With a 10mm guarded shackle, AP3 provides a formidable level of physical robustness. With a 5-year expected battery life and convenient battery changes, the AP3 padlocks and very low impact on maintenance programs.

“Teleporte helps tower companies streamline their operations as they no longer have to get physical keys or cards to anyone who needs to access sites that can be geographically isolated”, says David Coode, CEO at Sera4.

Product Introduction: Armored Padlock

Today, Sera4 announces AP3,  an armoured padlock for easy deployment of keyless security anywhere. AP3 has features which were designed specifically for telecom towers, such as chain link tether points and an internal battery that typically lasts 5 years before needing replacement.  The AP3 body is designed for the abuses of years of outdoor and remote real-world use. The body is chrome-plated, making it very resistant to saws and drills. The AP3 is water-resistant with an IP66 rating, which is good for all non-submersible applications. The silicone cover adds a final layer of protection.

AP3 is sampling now and shipping in volume in the second quarter of 2018.

Product Introduction: MX5

Today, Sera4 announces MX5, our next generation of telecom cabinet and shelter lock controllers for critical infrastructure protection. MX5 improves on all aspects of the MXv4 controller that it replaces: it is smaller, consumes less power, and can accommodate more lock types. MX5 also comes with independent cable sets to make installation and any future repairs much easier.

Your Wi-Fi Security is Obsolete!

Today, the world came to know that Wi-Fi has a catastrophic vulnerability in its negotiation of security keys.

Unlike the cracking of WEP (over 15 years ago) – this represents a huge concern for individual and corporate “privacy” as:

  • the reliance of Wi-Fi for data transport has become the default standard rather than the exception,
  • without software updates, there is no “alternate” way to configure your network to protect yourself (short of turning it off)

Fortunately, the report of the WPA2 security hole came many months ago – allowing vendors to implement fixes to their products.

Unfortunately, it will take many years to proliferate those fixes to everyone and every device.  I shudder to think how many products will be abandoned as “obsolete” by their manufacturers, meanwhile millions of users will go unprotected.

This Public Service Announcement hopefully highlights your immediate need to seek firmware upgrades for all your Wi-Fi devices (phones, laptops, routers)!

All our customers can rest assured that Sera4 products are not subject to this type of attack. Our current technologies and strict security protocols – prevent “man-in-the-middle” attacks – and we’re staying on top of all security threats to maintain our leadership in high-tech security.

Sera4 New Office
