South African airport undergoes security expansion project

O.R. Tambo International Airport, located in Johannesburg, South Africa, announced this month that it is conducting a large security upgrade project and that DVTel’s intelligent Security Operations Center (iSOC) will be the platform used to manage it all due to its flexibility in analog and IP technology.

The airport, which already has a DVTel surveillance system in place at its domestic and international terminals, will use iSOC to manage the nearly 650 IP cameras that are being installed in its new Central Terminal Building (CTB).

The airport’s existing legacy cameras will be connected to the new IP network using encoders, according to a statement issued by the company. The CTB project will include a mix of DVTel IP PTZ domes, mini domes, and fixed cameras.

The company’s SceneTracker software will also be utilized to combine views from multiple cameras in both the immigration and airside control areas.
