Case Study: IP CCTV and Electronic Security for Swissport Dublin

Posted by:SenSys onMarch 5, 2018

Swissport is the world’s largest provider of ground and cargo handling services in the aviation industry. The company provides services on behalf of some 835 client-companies and handles around 230 million passengers and 4.1 million flights (movements) per year. The company operates around 133 warehouses and moves approximately 4.3 million tonnes of cargo. With a workforce of around 62,000 personnel, Swissport is active at more than 280 stations in 48 countries across five continents, and generates annual consolidated operating revenue of EUR 2.7 billion.

SenSys Technology were selected as the IP CCTV and Electronic Security partners in Dublin and have recently installed an Avigilon High Definition, intelligent CCTV system at the Swissport Cargo Dublin, bonded warehouse. This is the secure warehouse which handles all Swissport cargo airside at Dublin Airport in Ireland.

The Requirement:

Swissport had an analogue CCTV system based on 2x 16 channel DVR’s. The 32 analogue cameras were located around the warehouse and wired with coaxial cabling to a communications cabinet. The footage was poor quality, pixelated video and not fit for purpose. There was currently no failover on recording hard drives, so it carried a great security, H&S and operational risk. The analogue system had no access over the network and was not easy to review CCTV footage.

The Solution:

SenSys Technology re-wired the security system at the bonded warehouse with CAT 6 structured cabling and we certified the cabling. As an approved structured cabling company, the cabling manufacturer certifies our structured cabling for a lifetime.

We installed a world leading Avigilon End-to-End CCTV Solution. Avigilon provides trusted security solutions to the global market.

Avigilon designs, develops, and manufactures video analytics, network video management software and hardware, surveillance cameras, and access control solutions. Avigilon’s solutions have been installed at thousands of customer sites, including school campuses, transportation systems, healthcare centres, public venues, critical infrastructure, prisons, factories, casinos, airports, financial institutions, government facilities, and retailers.

For the warehouse areas, we chose to use 6 Avigilon Multi-sensor cameras which incorporates 4x 3MP sensors and lenses built in to one housing. This means that we had 24 cameras built into 6 housings covering all operations within the warehouse area.

For external yard areas, entrance / exits and to cover the XRAY machines we chose to use 6 Avigilon, 5MP Bullet camera with integrated IR. With the 5MP sensors, this greatly improved the camera resolution by 20x. This meant greater definition and a minimum of 148 pixels on target and covering wider areas with less cameras.

For Internal office and comms areas we chose to use Avigilon H4 cameras with a 2MP sensor. The 2MP cameras covered all internal areas and provided coverage for security at all entrance points and health and safety on the floor areas.

We installed ACC6 (Avigilon Control Centre version 6) on a Dell Enterprise Server with Redundant Power Supply Units and RAID on the hard drives. This ensured that in the event of a power supply or hard drive failure that the system had a failover and redundancy, ensuring retention of recordings and no missing video. We also attached a 4-hour on-site Dell Warranty.

The Video management system installed was ACC6 (Avigilon control centre) Enterprise. The software was chosen by the client as they liked to have an end-to-end Avigilon system. The Avigilon control centre video management software also included HDSM which is High Definition Stream Management. HDSM Intelligently manages bandwidth from High Definition CCTV cameras and displays video on selected client PCs throughout the building. For example, on the operation managers PC and the Directors phone.

On-going support and service from SenSys CARE; Our technical team provide on-going preventative maintenance, support and system health monitoring of the CCTV security systems at Swissport. With our Network and Hardware monitoring tools we know of any potential issue on the security system before the client knows meaning we can pro-actively respond 24/7 eliminating downtime.
