DESCRIPTION

An insight into the biometric industry and the steps for successful deployment Biometrics technologies verify identity through characteristics such as fingerprints, voices, and faces. By providing increased security and convenience, biometrics have begun to see widespread deployment in network, e-commerce, and retail applications. This book provides in-depth analysis of biometrics as a solution for authenticating employees and customers. Leading authority, Samir Nanavati explores privacy, security, accuracy, system design, user perceptions, and lessons learned in biometric deployments. He also assesses the real-world strengths and weaknesses of leading biometric technologies: finger-scan, iris-scan, facial-scan, voice-scan, and signature-scan. This accessible book is a necessary step in understanding and implementing biometrics. Demystifies the complex world of optical networks for IT and business managers Over the past few years, the cost of fiber optic networking has decreased, making it the best solution for providing virtually unlimited bandwidth for corporate LANs and WANs, metropolitan networks, Internet access, and broadband to the home. The only strategic book on optical networking technologies written from a real-world business perspective, Optical Networking demystifies complex fiber technologies for managers, and details the practical business benefits an optical network can offer. Debra Cameron explores established and emerging markets for optical networks as well as the enabling technologies, applications, network architectures, key deployment issues, and cost considerations. She also provides in-depth case studies of optical networks now in use in the United States and abroad.
