CEM Systems has been named the winner of the Emerging Markets Airport awards (EMAA) 2011. The prestigious awards ceremony which took place on 1st June 2011 at Al Bustan Rotana hotel, Dubai, UAE, recognised CEM for its achievements in the security system at Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi, Terminal 3.
The industry leading CEM AC2000 security management system was installed by ADT India and was chosen to secure Terminal 3 as it offered Indira Ghandi Delhi International Airport (DIAL) an innovative and high quality security system. Utilising the advantages of IP technology, the AC2000 system installed at Terminal 3 represented one of the biggest IP based access control systems in the region.
“CEM is delighted to be named winner of this year’s Emerging Market Airport Awards”, said Philip Verner, Sales and Marketing Manager, CEM Systems. “CEM has been successfully securing airports around the world for over 25 years, including 80% of UK airports, and as such is involved in many airport development projects within emerging markets. The installation at Indira Gandhi International Airport Terminal 3 was a huge project and marked a flagship security system for India & South East Asia.”
“Both ADT India and CEM Systems were delighted to be involved in the Indira Gandhi Terminal 3 project” said Ramesh Jayaraman, Managing Director, ADT India. “The system offers a fully integrated IP based access control and video solution, with approximately 40,000 cardholders, 3500 CEM card readers and over 2,600 NVR (Network Video Recorders) within the system design. The installation also marked the first fully integrated control centre in the region.”
CEM IP card readers were installed throughout airside/landside boundaries with highly secure CEM S610f fingerprint readers installed at critical security points. CEM IP readers utilised existing Ethernet connectivity at the airport and were used to enhance airport operations such as check-in-desk enabling, air-bridge monitoring and passenger segregation. For roaming security measures CEM S3020 portable readers were also chosen.
