CEM Systems wins Khalifa Port, Abu Dhabi contract
Khalifa Port, Abu Dhabi picks CEM AC2000 SE Security Management System
CEM Systems, part of Tyco Security Products, has secured a contract at the Khalifa Port & Industrial Zone (KPIZ), Abu Dhabi to install its CEM AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) system. It was installed at Khalifa Port by CEM Approved Reseller Tyco Fire & Security UAE.
"CEM is delighted to be involved in one of the UAE’s most prestigious infrastructure projects. With our many years experience in both the port and airport sector, CEM has provided a sophisticated security solution for Khalifa Port," said Philip Verner, regional sales director for CEM Systems.
He continued: "This was an exciting yet challenging project for CEM who delivered not one but two systems for the Port; AC2000 & a highly customised Gate Management System, providing high level integration to multiple port security systems to ensure the monitoring and control of vehicles coming onsite."
The AC2000 Gate Management Solution integrates with a number of third party systems all interfaced to ensure multiple checks are made before a vehicle can enter the site. The driver firstly swipes their card then Passive or Active long range RFID tags are used on trucks and light vehicles and then finally ANPR License Plate Recognition is used and the gate opens.
"Khalifa Port required a highly secure & flexible access control system, which could be used for more than just access control," said Craig Menzies, security division manager, Tyco Fire & Security UAE.
"Having worked with CEM before on projects such as Dubai International Airport, we knew the CEM AC2000 solution would be a perfect fit for the Port and with CEM’s dedicated Integrations team, Khalifa Ports high expectations could be met successfully."
CEM’s advanced hardware was used throughout the Port including over 700 S610e and S610f fingerprint readers, S3020 portable card readers and over 300 DIU (Door Interface Unit) 230s utilising PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) technology.
Khalifa Port also uses software applications such as AC2000 AED (Alarm Event Display), VIPPS ID Badging and Visitor Management.
