Lebanon’s postal services continuously improves security.
Following 17 years of civil war in Lebanon, the government embarked on a massive reconstruction programme in 1993, consisting of rebuilding the infrastructure of the country, as well as in modernising its institutions.
Part of that programme was the appointment of a private operator to rebuild and operate the national postal services as of October 1998. That was the beginning of Libanpost. Today Libanpost continuously introduces innovative services to get closer to customers.
Libanpost’s existing security infrastructure had become outdated. The system was not functioning according to Libanpost’s wishes and, on top of that, was expensive to maintain. Therefore, the postal company started looking for a new partner in security who could provide it with a security system that would match all modern security requirements. Next to this, it was important that the solution would be cost-effective and user-friendly.
GE Security’s solution
Based on the requirements set out by Libanpost, GE Security offered a solution that could meet Libanpost’s expectations in the best way possible. The existing system was transformed to a new security solution consisting of access control, video surveillance and fire detection.
Using the Secure Perfect management software, it also became possible to integrate the different systems into one management application. Additionally, Secure Perfect allows for event verification by linking the video surveillance and access control system. Digital recorders are installed that allow a large storage of video footage, hence enabling to retrieve past events if needed. GE Security was able to provide this security solution while partly protecting Libanpost’s old investment, using the same cabling and some of the existing readers and cameras. In that way, GE Security was able to offer Libanpost the economically viable solution it was looking for.
