September 2021 Industry News
Singapore’s Changi Airport Group selected Genetec, Inc., as a security solutions partner for the airport’s three-year security expansion and upgrade project. With the system, the airport—which is one of the largest transportation hubs in Asia—plans to improve the overall experience for passengers, employees, and business operations. The project is expected to reach completion by the end of 2023, and it will integrate the civilian airport with Genetec Security Center, a unified security platform which combines IP security systems into a single interface, with a specific focus on terminals’ video surveillance system. Security Center will allow airport security managers to accommodate for new data types within a single interface, underpinning the facility’s security operations.
