Port Terminal Security that Protects Staff, Passengers and Cargo
Ports and transportation hubs worldwide are becoming increasingly sensitive environments with complex infrastructures that manage the security of people and assets from all over the world. Asset monitoring involves the recording of vehicle and cargo identification numbers, as well as the identity of all transporting personnel. Port terminal security requires that real-time video be made available to wireless patrol officers to enable them to react to and manage alarms accordingly.
A SINGLE VIEW OF A COMPLEX INFRASTRUCTURE
PACOM’s integrated port security solution allows ports and airports to implement a plan covering all aspects of security:
- who can access different areas of the facility
- how to identify individuals in secure areas
- how to ensure the physical security of the facility’s buildings, assets and infrastructure from land, sea and air.
PACOM provides a single, unified platform integrating existing in-house and third party security systems such as video, access control, intercom and intrusion with HR systems to provide a single view of port and airport security. Its use of asset tags, long range cards and readers plays a vital role in helping officers to deliver top rate security.
POWERFUL SECURITY SOFTWARE AT THE HEART OF THE SYSTEM
PACOM’s open, integrated security management platform called Unison cleverly acts as a “bridge” between the security system and other subsystems. Unison integrates signals received across its alarm, access control, fire, intercom and video systems to provide a real-time overview of port security. Alarms can be displayed on interactive floor plans identifying their precise location and audible signals generated at the workstation uniquely identifying the type of alarm triggered. Easy functionality and efficient bulk programming makes administration easy and saves time.
