ACSA boards with DVTel

July 2010 Surveillance

South Africa has seen an unprecedented up tick in new and cutting edge security technology being specified and installed as the country readied itself for the FIFA World Cup. Major new infrastructure projects to support regional development include new terminals and parking facilities at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and Cape Town International Airport and a brand new airport in Durban, all facilities operated by Airport Company South Africa (ASCA).

While ACSA’s main objective when laying out the project was to provide the best safety and security available for passengers and employees alike, it also had goals to improve airport operations – including reduced congestion, improved queue management, improved aircraft on-time departure performance and easier orientation for the travelling public.

DVTel has been involved in supporting ACSA’s efforts in all aspects of security and operations. DVTel’s Intelligent Security Operations Centre (iSOC) is installed at six airports for ACSA, providing a unified solution that includes a combination of IP cameras, IP video surveillance, IP access control and integrated third party solutions.

Airport authorities chose DVTel’s iSOC due to its flexibility in simultaneously transitioning legacy analogue equipment and accommodating the latest IP technology, making it cost competitive while delivering superior management and camera image performance. iSOC is the management platform for viewing, storing, and using camera data from over 1000 cameras deployed throughout the airports.

ACSA has been very pleased with its total cost of ownership. For systems already available, legacy cameras were connected to the IP network using encoder technology. Also, the ability for both security and operations to benefit from one system allowed for money budgeted for operations to go to other activities.
