Arinc to take part in Dubai security expo
Dubai, January 10, 2013
Arinc, a leader in integrated airport security solutions, will be participating next week at the leading security show, Intersec in Dubai.
The 15th edition of Intersec will take place at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from January 15 to 17.
Arinc EMEA was selected as leader of the consortium to design and build the New Doha International Airport (NDIA) because of its clear understanding of the project environment, solution design, and proven delivery of enterprise level integrated system solutions which include multiple security systems and a number of command and control rooms, said Stephen Horner, Business Development director, Security Solutions.
The company’s integrated physical security offering is centred on its Advanced Information Management (AIM) solution, a flexible command and control integration platform that provides versatile, scalable, fully integrated solutions for single and multi-site facilities.
Arinc’s AIM solutions can integrate an entire site’s video surveillance, access control, vehicle ID management, perimeter security, detection devices, public address, notification digital signage and converged network technology into a single interoperable user platform, a company statement said.
Integral voice and notification systems connect emergency and security personnel with on-site staff, it added.
The command-and-control application provides sophisticated monitoring of all subsystem activities and alarms, and presents operators with a common operational picture of their facility.
AIM has built-in redundancy for servers, peripheral equipment and field I/O devices and is a high-availability system. This unique resiliency feature enables stand-alone automated operation of critical functions if the main system server fails or communication with the host server is lost.
“It’s the gold standard of security solutions, providing real-time situational awareness for the safety and security of personnel, passengers and facilities, plus enhanced decision support capabilities for security personnel,” said Horner.
Arinc EMEA is targeting AIM for major infrastructure projects in the Middle East, such as new airports and highways, ports, rail, petrochemical and utilities.
“Our powerful offering, combined with our regional presence, puts us in a strong position to pursue significant opportunities in the Middle East where there is currently significant investment in such projects,” he added.
AIM is based on industry standards, open architectures and certified interfaces, enabling a wide range of security technologies and functions to be incorporated into fully managed, cost-effective solutions.
It also provides extensive flexibility in terms of site-specific requirements. All project systems are designed individually to suit the needs and requirements of the applications, sites and client, as well as mandatory compliances.
“Arinc is able to modify its AIM platform to meet customer specifications which is something most providers aren't prepared to do,” Horner said.
Arinc EMEA’s technical offering is supported by a strong regional presence, headquartered in Dubai, which was established to project manage major system integration contracts at three of the largest airport construction projects in the Middle East – Doha, Cairo and Dubai.
“In many parts of the world Arinc has long been the go-to provider for security integration solutions for airports, seaports, utilities, transportation, defence and borders,” said Horner. – TradeArabia News Service
