The multiple roles played by today’s airports pose considerable security challenges. Airports must therefore meet incredibly demanding criteria with regard to security, safety, communications and building automation. Challenges include:
Protecting passengers and employees
Preventing terrorism in its many possible forms – bomb threats, suicide attacks, sabotage and hijacking of aircraft
Dealing with fire and explosions
Managing a wide variety of different access authorizations
Managing these challenges is a daunting task, since many different areas need to be monitored: perimeters, parking structures, terminals and other passenger facilities, aprons, airfields, shops, restaurants etc.
An IP-based access control system from Pogo is ideal for preventing unauthorized individuals from entering restricted areas such as maintenance facilities security, safety and communication challenges. It supports a large range of readers as well as biometric solutions to meet strict security requirements. Together with video surveillance, this makes it possible to capture and record all access events. Violations automatically trigger an alarm so immediate action can be taken to deal with the situation.
