CEM Systems announces that the CEM AC2000 security management system has been successfully installed at Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries main base at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah. SAEI joins leading airports and aviation maintenance facilities around the world where the CEM AC2000 system is providing paramount security.
Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries is the maintenance arm of Saudi Arabian Airlines, the flag carrier of Saudi Arabia. SAEI maintains the entire fleet of Saudia which includes Boeing B777-200 & -300 & Airbus A320 and A330 families and provides maintenance handling at all in-Kingdom airports and over 27 international stations.
“The powerful CEM AC2000 security management system is providing high levels of security to our main maintenance base in Jeddah” said Mr. Riyadh Bakedo, Director Plant & Equipment Maintenance from Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries. “CEM’s S610 intelligent readers provide access control restrictions to highly secure airside areas such as administration offices and aircraft hangers, while CEM biometric readers enable us to control staff access to our airside warehouse. We are very happy with the AC2000 system, which is set to grow and expand further”.
CEM’s S610 intelligent IP card readers come with an LCD display, keypad and on-board database offering intelligence at the door. As such the reader will continue to operate and store transactions offline, ensuring zero system downtime. The S610 readers also feature sophisticated door modes such as Turnstile, Control Post and Validation mode. This enables the CEM S610f readers to critically secure turnstiles to monitor staff attendance into SAEI aircraft hangers and warehouse. The S610f reader also offers increased security by providing three levels of identity checks – ID card authentication, PIN check and fingerprint verification.
As an all-in-one Tyco Security products solution, Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries (SAEI) also has over 350 American Dynamics Illustra IP cameras installed to secure its maintenance base. The Illustra 400 IP cameras have one of the most powerful sensor-processor combinations available on the market and have been in operation at Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries (SAEI) for over two years.
VideoEdge Network Video Recorders (NVRs) are also utilised to provide a powerful, high-performance video management solution. VideoEdge records and manages video from the high-definition Illustra cameras and enables multiple video streams for live and recorded video collection.
Using an intuitive victor unified client, Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries (SAEI) can centrally manage and control all live/recorded video from multiple VideoEdge NVRs, providing Saudia Aerospace Engineering Industries (SAEI) with a powerful and future proof video management platform.
