Tech provider Genetec has launched a new solution designed to help airports of all sizes manage and optimize their security and airport terminal operations.
The solution, Security Center for Airports, enables security managers, control room operators, terminal and ground handling staff, and passenger experience managers to work together using a single unified product tailored to their needs.
Security Center for Airports has been designed to help customers to create a safer environment, improve airport operations and enhance the passenger experience, while reducing the overall costs of operations and increasing non-aviation revenues.
“Traditionally, airports would have to work with a multitude of single-purpose products that don’t interconnect to build their global security operations centers (GSOCs),” explained David Lenot, airport practice leader at Genetec.
“This would often create a very complex operating environment leading to slow security response time. But with the growing volume of passengers, airports need help to guarantee safe travel, and many airport security teams are rethinking their security technology strategy. With Security Center for Airports, control room operators, terminal operations, and ground-handling can all work in sync to ensure their airport runs like clockwork.”
“From parking, shopping and dining to check-in and take off, our airport, like any other, must provide a safe and efficient experience for travelers,” said Daniel St-Pierre, deputy director, operations and IT security, at Aéroports de Montréal. “The Genetec unified platform helps us make the passenger journey seamless while also improving operations, and making the airport a safer environment for everyone that passes through our doors.”
In addition to video management (Security Center Omnicast), access control (Security Center Synergis) and automatic license plate recognition capabilities (Security Center AutoVu), Security Center for Airports features a number of airport-specific capabilities including: Security Center Flight Business Logic; Security Center Boarding Route Management; Security Center Restricted Area Surveillance; and Security Center Passenger Analytics.
