As innovators of fiber optic sensing technology, Bandweaver is hosting a webinar titled ‘Raising The Bar: How optical fiber outperforms traditional perimeter security technologies’ on Thursday 11th May 2023 at 10:30 AM BST, in conjunction with Security Matters.

As the title suggests, this webinar will look at how the latest generation fiber optic PIDS outperforms alternative technologies, improving site security, reducing time wasting nuisance alarms, and ensuring operator confidence remains high.


Traditional Perimeter Intrusion Detection Solutions (PIDS) such as lidar and beam detection can let you down when it comes to collecting real time information with precise location data, a challenge that operations teams have been struggling with for years. Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) systems are a considerable step up on this front, offering the highest levels of detection with extensive nuisance alarm mitigation, ensuring security operators have the most up-to-date and accurate information at their fingertips.

When focussing on the comparison of DAS against other PIDS solutions, the ‘Raising The Bar’ webinar will highlight points including:

  • Improvement of site security
  • Improvement of risk mitigation
  • Reduced nuisance alarms
  • Raised operator confidence
  • The many advantages of exceptional location accuracy
  • Low maintenance solutions
  • Cost savings offered by their fiber-based solutions
  • Applications for all types of sites – from small pumping stations to extended borders and airports
  • The ability to integrate into wider security solutions

‘Raising The Bar’ will be hosted by Mark Horton, Bandweaver’s Vice President, who has over thirty years’ experience in the security and technology sectors across markets in Africa, Europe, MENA, and Asia Pacific.

As an expert in the field, Mark has progressed through operational, project management and consultancy roles to business development, strategy, and sales, and has led the sales team on the implementation of the company’s global growth strategy utilising a range of fibre optic detection and sensing solutions.

Mark, says: “We’re looking forward to sharing the benefits of Distributed Acoustic Sensing with potential users, and sharing examples of our experience through different projects. Through decades of innovation, Bandweaver recognises benefits of fiber optic sensing and we know how well it outperforms alternative technologies. That’s why we’re keen to share our knowledge and insight with attendees.”

Bandweaver’s DAS portfolio includes Horizon, FenceSentry and the latest addition – ZoneSentry. These sophisticated Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) solutions provide detection both above and below ground from a single unit or even with a single fiber optic cable. This can be applied to covert buried, fence mounted and wall mounted perimeters.
