In previous blogs, we’ve discussed what makes system integration so important. These days, effective systems are comprehensive systems, and that means getting each piece of tech you use to work with one another. If you’re aiming to improve your overall system and approach, integrating systems may be one of the best ways to do this. System integration has especially become increasingly important in the world of transportation security, but why is interconnectedness so necessary for effective transportation security?
One of the many goals of effective transportation security measures is to identify drivers and passengers of vehicles effectively. System integration allows for a multitude of methods to be tied into one another. For example, if you have a parking facility with a biometric security system like fingerprint scanners, this can be used in conjunction with our DriverCam to guarantee that if one system were to miss something, the other would catch it. The closer you can be to certain that only the right people are entering secure areas, the more confident you can be in knowing your safety is guaranteed.
System integration doesn’t just allow for easier identification of drivers and passengers, but it can also make it easier to hold them accountable. Say you use our Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System which picks up on a suspicious anomaly on the underside of a vehicle. If you’re using multiple systems and they’re integrated, like our license plate reader system, it will then also keep track of which vehicle pinged as potentially dangerous. Having a complete image of the license plate in question on record could mean holding that driver accountable at a later date if necessary.
Easier for Personnel
While you could have a bunch of separate systems that aren’t integrated, this makes monitoring those systems a difficult task. A better approach is having your systems be integrative, allowing for all of the monitoring through one comprehensive module. Take the Gatekeeper Service Interconnect Protocol (GSIP) for example, which allows for an easily scalable and customizable suite of solutions, so you don’t need to worry about monitoring each technology individually. It can also be integrated with other, typical Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) and Video Management (VMS) systems.
