One of the world’s busiest airports, serving over 56 million passengers annually, places multi-million follow-order to add multiple solutions from NICE’s broad security offering to its existing NICE implementation
Ra’anana, Israel, March 28, 2011 - NICE Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: NICE), the worldwide leader of intent-based solutions that extract insight to impact business performance, reduce financial risk and ensure safety and security, today announced that the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has placed a multi-million dollar order to expand its NICE implementation. DFW will be deploying NICE’s IP video surveillance solution and the NICE Inform incident information management solution. The expansion is part of a strategic modernization initiative to strengthen DFW’s security, threat detection, emergency response and risk mitigation capabilities. The NICE solutions will address DFW’s growing security requirements while providing a foundation for DFW to migrate to IP video surveillance. As part of this initiative, the Airport will also be expanding its audio recording capabilities, adding the NICE Inform multimedia solution which 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 DFW 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. With its plan to substantially increase the number of cameras and add modern IP video cameras into the mix, DFW will now 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.
DFW will also be upgrading its recording and incident management capabilities with the NICE Inform multimedia incident information management solution. The addition of NICE Inform means that DFW, for the first time, will be able to synchronize voice recordings and surveillance video for authentic, 360-degree incident reconstruction.
“As one the world’s busiest airports and a gateway for many millions of passengers, DFW has built a reputation as a leader in airport security,” said Yochai Rozenblat, CEO and President of NICE Americas, “We are honored that DFW has entrusted NICE with its security needs."
