The AC2000 security management system from CEM Systems, part of Tyco Security Products has been selected to secure the offices of Malaysia Airlines.
Malaysia Airlines required a product that could be integrated with a variety of systems. Andrew Fulton, Senior Director, Global Sales, CEM Systems, said: “CEM has a long history of working with aviation customers to find the right solution to meet their specific needs. We have maintained our position in the aviation market by continually developing AC2000 and by staying ahead of the industry. Malaysia Airlines key requirement was for one integrated security platform for access control, video and intrusion, as well as integration to an external visitor registration system.”
The AC2000 DSC SIA Intruder Interface and the AC2000 American Dynamics TVR video interface allow the access control system to act as the security management system (SMS), with DSC intrusion and American Dynamics range of digital video recorders visible from one unified platform. The AC2000 AED (Alarm Event Display) application forms a single interface so that administrators can centrally monitor access control, intruder and CCTV. An AC2000 Application Programming Interface (API) has been provided to allow the integration of an external visitor registration system to the AC2000 system visitor’s module. This allows the airline to transfer critical data from an existing visitor system.
The airline has also the AC2000 WEB Visitors module. The UK makers describe it as a web-based tool to monitor visitor access from any location. Users can add details of a schedule visit including date, time, sponsor details and even a visitor image via a standard web browser. CEM adds that it has provided the airline with a stable solution with a high level of redundancy. Server redundancy has been achieved using AC2000 Failover which provides a failsafe secondary server and the highest assurance of system reliability should communication be temporarily lost with the central AC2000 server.
