Boca Raton, FL, November 19, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Antheus Technology Inc., a global leading provider of biometric software solutions, announced today that the Agora ID solution, incorporating livescan devices from Suprema, received certifications from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for the agency’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) Image Quality Specification (IQS) Appendix F standards.
Agora ID was certified with the Suprema RealScan10 in the categories of Live Scan Systems and Identification Flat Systems, and with combination RealScan10 and RealScanD in the category Live Scan Systems.
Agora ID uses fingerprints to accurately identify persons against a scalable database. Agora ID is a configurable software solution suitable for a range of projects sizes, from small standalone biometric visitor control systems to large-scale biometric identification programs deployed in many servers and hundreds of workstations. Based on the ANSI/NIST ITL-1 2007 standard for personal identification and using principles of flexible manufacturing systems the Agora ID solution treats each ANSI/NIST type of transaction (TOT) as if it were a product on a pallet in route to completion. Through web services and reusable software code, a fully functional Agora ID solution guarantees the project goals: to process a number of enrollments per day against a growing AFIS database, to issue new ID’s only once to each person, to detect criminals at bookings, to verify a person’s identity at a secure transaction, and more.
Agora ID is interoperable because is based on standards and it uses widely available information systems technology. It lowers the total cost of ownership and protects the end user investment. With intuitive user interface and extensive documentation in English and Spanish it is easy to use and deploy, eliminating the need for customization. It is fully scalable because the Agora MatchServers can compare any number of identities per day against any number of identities in the database. And most of all Agora ID is flexible because it can be configured to fit the customer needs.
