Airport utilises CEM AC2000 access control and software modules to heighten security
CEM Systems, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco (NYSE: TYC),can today announce they have secured Minsk Airport, Belarus. CEM’s powerful and flexible AC2000 access control and security management systemhas been installed at the Airport to provide the highest level of security. The system was installed at Minsk Airport by CEM Approved Reseller Unibelus.
Minsk National Airport is the main air gateway to the Republic of Belarus and occupies an advantageous geographical location as it is situated at the intersection of the biggest main lines connecting Western Europe with the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Minsk Airport has a capacity of 2 million passengers per year.
“In selecting AC2000, Minsk Airport have chosen an access control and security management system that has a long and established record at some of the world’s most prestigious airports. CEM has a history of understanding the security requirements and needs of airports and the industry leading CEM AC2000 system has been used to secure airports for over 20 years” said Philip Verner, EMEA Regional Sales Director, CEM Systems.
The powerful CEM AC2000 system has a proven record as one of the most reliable and resilient security solutions available. It not only provides Minsk National Airport with advanced access control and system failover, but also a range of software applications to enhance the Airport’s onsite operations and increase business efficiency.
Using AC2000 Failover, Minsk Airport is provided with a failsafe secondary server and the highest assurance of system reliability should the central AC2000 server hardware fail. This automatic process ensures zero data loss and is cost effective as it requires no intervention from a support engineer.
Minsk Airport has installed the AC2000 video interface for MatriVideoto allow security personnel to associate access control alarms with MatriVideo digital video clips as well as view live camera footage. Using the AC2000 Alarm Event Display (AED)application all alarms and camera footage can be displayed centrally on the AC2000 system enabling it to act as the central command and control for alarm management.
To increase flexibility and reduce operational costs, the airport has utilised the AC2000 WEB Visitor Managementapplication to remotely manage visitor access via a standard web browser. Only select security personnel at Minsk Airport have the ability to manage visitor access levels and validate visitor ID cards. ID cards can then be printed via the AC2000 VIPPS(Visual Imaging Pass Production) application allowing the airport to personalise cards by adding their logo, staff signatures, and images.
In order to monitor staff IN and OUT times, the airport uses the AC2000 Time and Attendancemodule. This user friendly interface is easy to set up, easy to use and saves both time and money as it eliminates the need for a separate timekeeping system.
The airport also used low cost eDCM300 intelligent two door controllers, designed to interface to third-party read heads. The tamper proof controller has a structured database which allows storage of large amounts of cardholder records for off-line card validation.
