Paige’s access control composite cable for Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) is a composite construction that provides four plenum-rated components together in a single jacket. With OSDP, access control readers need only two low-capacitance pairs compared with the six-to-12-or-more conductors typically used in legacy systems using the Wiegand protocol. OSDP significantly improves security by enabling continuous monitoring that would identify failed, missing, malfunctioning or tampered readers. It also supports AES-128 encryption, a capability required in U.S. federal government applications. The OSDP protocol also delivers advanced functionality, improved ease of use and greater interoperability, including the support for smart card technologies, advanced user interfaces, and the remote configuration and upgrade of readers.
