NICE Systems Ltd., a provider of intent-based solutions for safety and security, says Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has ordered the NICE Internet protocol (IP) video surveillance solution and the “NICE Inform” incident information management solution.
DFW’s order is part of a strategic modernization initiative to strengthen the airport’s security, threat detection, emergency response and risk mitigation capabilities, NICE says in a written statement.
The NICE solutions are to address DFW’s growing security requirements while providing a foundation for the airport to migrate to IP video surveillance, says NICE, a global company with offices in Rutherford, N.J. As part of the initiative, the Airport will also expand its audio recording capabilities, adding the NICE Inform multimedia solution that enables authentic incident reconstruction through synchronization of voice recordings and video.
DFW ranks third among the world’s busiest airports in aircraft movements and eighth with respect to total passenger traffic, serving over 56 million passengers a year. The airport covers more than 29.8 square miles, an area roughly the size of Manhattan, and encompasses five terminals, seven runways, three control towers and 155 gates. NICE’s video surveillance solutions have been an integral component of DFW’s security surveillance system for eight years.
As part of DFW’s plan to substantially increase the number of cameras and add modern IP video cameras into its system, DFW will deploy an IP video solution from NICE. The solution will give DFW scalability for its security expansion, while enabling the airport to leverage its existing infrastructure investments as it migrates to IP. When the project is complete, DFW will be able to centrally monitor, record and manage all IP and analog cameras seamlessly in one system.
