BroadWare's wireless platform uses a "virtual switch" to replace the analog matrix switch boxes commonly used in traditional wired networks. Like matrix switches, a virtual switch routes signals from a range of input sources to a variety of output devices, creating a "matrix" pattern of interconnection possibilities.
ARINC's AIM System for Airports is an enhanced version of the company's AIM security technology currently used at more than a third of the nation's nuclear power plants. The central AIM system provides nine advanced security capabilities including access control, intrusion detection, emergency telephone and notification systems, alarm and event annunciation, expanded video surveillance, digital video storage, intelligent video analytics, improved gate control and enhanced personnel badging.
"We are delivering to the Long Beach Airport today's most advanced airport security capabilities and a central management system that exceeds all specifications and requirements," said Mike Picco, ARINC Vice President, Airport Systems Division. "The integrated deployment of AIM for Airports with BroadWare's wireless video surveillance platform will become a technology model for the entire airport industry."
