ADT, Europe’s leading provider of

the terminal’s IT network. As a result, T2

recently announced that SITA, a premier

management, telephony and passenger

electronic fire and security solutions, provider of global information and

telecommunications solutions to the air transport industries, chose it to deliver a fully-integrated security and access

control solution within Dublin Airport’s

new Terminal 2 (T2). T2 opened its doors

in November 2010 and has the capacity to handle more than 30 million passengers each year. Working with partners

Tyco and Meyertech, ADT has helped T2 visitors have a safe and pleasant

experience travelling through the airport. The €395m terminal opens up a new

gateway between Ireland and the US. ADT is responsible for the

has digital recording, alarms, building

screening operating on one consolidated network.

With more than 600 CCTV cameras

and using h.264 video encoders for IP

based recording, ADT has delivered one of the world’s most advanced video

management systems. The solution

integrates CCTV, access control, building management, baggage handling, and

fire alarm systems into a digital control room that provides a consolidated

view of all of these critical T2 systems.

Operating information is delivered across two data centres to strengthen and maintain the flow of data

across all systems, while video surveillance is connected

via the IT network to a 400

Terabyte (TB) Storage Area Network (SAN).

To further strengthen air

transport links between Ireland and the US,

Dublin Airport is also

using the integrated system to support

a new facility with the US

end-to-end delivery of

the airport’s CCTV and security systems

as well as their support and maintenance. The IP-based solution provides an

interface between analogue and digital systems, which is then integrated with

26

Customs and Border Protection (CBP)

which provides passenger clearance in Ireland on departing flights to the US. This provides a fluid transition to the US immigration and customs service

on arrival; improving the border control

process and heightening “passenger flow” efficiency levels. .

“Dublin Airport T2 offers passengers

state-of-the-art facilities. The security and safety of visitors to the airport were two of the primary concerns

with the airport design,” said Michael

Powell the SITA Programme Director. “A comprehensive security solution was

required for T2. It needed to integrate

with a number of critical airport systems intended to run over the newly designed network, as well as integrate with

legacy systems and be controlled from a consolidated central point for better

management. ADT is a name synonymous with quality in the safety and security market and was the ideal choice for SITA to partner with for the design,

implementation, and support of the CCTV security system.”

“For an organisation of Dublin Airport’s

stature and reputation, getting security right is absolutely critical to safeguard

its passengers and therefore the systems in place need to meet the required high standard,” said Donal Colfer, Integrated Solutions Group ADT. “Organisations, including Dublin Airport are taking

advantage of end-to-end integration of

security and life safety systems for better

control and response to problems. We are delighted to bring ADT’s expertise to this project by helping to deliver, maintain and support such a forward-thinking development.”
