MELVILLE, N.Y. -- Verint Systems Inc., a leading provider of analytic software-based solutions for communications interception, networked video security and business intelligence, announced today that its Networked Video Solution has been selected to enhance security for AirTrain JFK. AirTrain JFK is managed by The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which maintains the bridges, tunnels, bus terminals, airports, PATH and seaports that are critical to the region's trade and transportation capabilities.
AirTrain JFK is an 8.1-mile light rail system that connects JFK airport to the New York City area's mass transit system. AirTrain enables thousands of air travelers and airport employees to travel to and from one of the world's busiest airports every day. AirTrain also serves as an on-airport transportation service, taking travelers between the airline terminals, rental car facilities, hotel shuttles, and airport parking lots.
The Verint Networked Video Solution will enable Port Authority police to enhance security of the rail system by centrally monitoring elevators, passenger platforms and certain parts of the track from a central operations center. The solution will be delivered in conjunction with Verint partner IK Systems, Inc. of Victor, NY.
