The Nanchang Changbei International Airport in China selected HID Global to provide its networked access control solution, contactless smart cards and readers to safeguard terminals andincrease airport security.
Changbei International Airport leveraged HID Global’s VertX V1000 controllers, the VertX V100 door/reader interface and iCLASS R10 contactless smart card readers in six core areas, including boarding gates, its extra-low voltage (ELV) system area, equipment rooms, management offices and the entrance to the aircraft operations area.
As part of increasing airport security, iCLASS smart cards have also replaced the airport’s old employee photo ID badge system, and staff members are now required to present their iCLASS credential to readers at entry points for identity verification.
The new system enables up-to-the-minute record transmittal to the central server for report generation and real-time monitoring. It also offers the ability to manage and restrict entry to specific areas based on the time of day, limit access to critical zones to authorized personnel only and define staff access control levels according to job titles.
