Multi-credential flexibility

Issue 3 2021 Access Control & Identity Management

Suprema CoreStation is an intelligent door controller which provides the advantages of biometric-enabled security over a centralised access control system. Designed to accommodate enterprise-level systems, the CoreStation can store up to 500 000 users with a fingerprint-matching speed of up to 400 000 matches per second. With its high-performance, biometric readiness and Ethernet communication, CoreStation is also capable of offering the full features of the BioStar 2 platform.

CoreStation provides system design flexibility with credential options ranging from PIN, RF card reader, mobile access to fingerprint and face recognition. Below, Suprema shares a few partner testimonials about its security controller, CoreStation, that helps facilitate building multi-credential access control systems.

Meyer, a partner in Turkey, was able to construct a facial recognition access control system for its customer using Suprema CoreStation and Suprema face recognition terminals.

“CoreStation offers unrivalled matching speed. The customer preferred to connect the face recognition terminals to CoreStation instead of directly to the server for stronger security. This meant that all user data was saved in CoreStation and data had to be transferred to CoreStation for every matching operation. Despite this configuration, users do not notice any delay in authentication thanks to CoreStation’s powerful performance,” said Orcun Bayindir, CEO of Meyer.

IQ trading, a partner in Ukraine, enabled fingerprint recognition access control system for a banking customer. Andrii Glukhov, technical support lead at IQ trading, cited CoreStation’s scalability, enterprise-level memory and interlock zone support as advantages.

“Using Suprema CoreStation, we connected 26 two-sided doors with high-performance fingerprint authentication. CoreStation is a powerful controller that can store up to 500 000 users, 1 000 000 fingerprint templates and 5 000 000 logs, providing uninterrupted service regardless of network issues. We were also able to create sequential passages with interlock zones, increasing overall security level and eliminating the possibility of a person entering the second door without closing the first one,” said Glukhov.

Absolon, a partner in Europe, provided a mobile access solution to Crestyl, a real estate developer in Czech, using CoreStation. The site has over 100 doors with 1500 employees and required a secure yet flexible controller that could be easily integrated with third-party systems.

Crestyl was operating C4 software and was looking for a way to add mobile credentials without a major system overhaul. CoreStation, together with Suprema BioStar 2 and Suprema XPass D2 readers, was a great answer because of CoreStation and BioStar 2’s integration flexibility. C4 was integrated with BioStar 2 via the BioStar 2 API and XPass D2 was selected for mobile credential compatibility.

“CoreStation’s appeal lies in the gamut of credential options it supports. Partners and customers can enable PIN, RF card, mobile access as well as biometric credentials like face and fingerprint with Suprema’s intelligent controller,” said Hanchul Kim, CEO of Suprema Inc.
