Ericsson solution powers Miami airport

Ericsson seals a deal to provide custom solution for the Miami International Airport which includes deployment and systems integration of an access control system and alarm system to secure more than 1,000 access points across the airport.

The solution includes live high-speed video surveillance, synchronized with two-way audio intercoms and supports both digital video and audio recording.

The system includes live full frame video feeds from more than 500 cameras - along with audio and telemetry information - linked to security workstations throughout the airport.

Serving more than 15 million passengers each year, Miami International Airport is in the top 30 worldwide for total passengers. As part of the airport's capital improvement program and the Federal Aviation Administration's airport security initiative, an enhanced security system was required.

The solution was needed to increase passenger and personnel safety, improve video surveillance capacity and reduce overall incident response time.
