Genetec unifies security for Quebec City airport

Genetec is at San Jose, highlighting a deployment with Quebec City Jean- Lesage International Airport.

The airport deployed Genetec Security Center in 2008 as part of a major expansion to accommodate an increase in regional and international flights. Today, Security Center helps the airport's operators manage more 230 Axis and Panasonic cameras, 60 perimeter gates and hundreds of doors with HID Global card credentials, biometric iris-scans and fingerprint technologies. They also must track more than 2,000 cardholders with various security clearances in compliance with federally-mandated regulations.

Managing all systems from a single platform provides operators with a bird's eye view of the entire airport, giving security officials the ability to identify possible security issues before they turn into major security events. All door events, possible perimeter intrusions and triggered alarms are viewed in real time by operators who can then quickly investigate the issues and follow detailed procedures to handle various incidents.

"Security Center unifies all these various points of information together under a single platform, so operators have a clear view what's happening at all times," said Dan Lamarre, a sales engineer for Genetec.

The single security platform also saves the airport on maintenance costs as well as on training for operators.
