Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport has partnered with Siemens Building Technologies to install AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Homeland Security Management System throughout the entire airport. Symmetry Homeland is AMAG’s government approved security management system. Anchorage International Airport chose an unrestricted enterprise level, cluster aware fault tolerant solution to ensure system operability at all times. Symmetry Homeland will integrate with the airport’s existing Verint video management system and StentoFon’s intercom system.
“This is an exciting opportunity for both Siemens and AMAG to partner on a project of this magnitude,” said Siemens Building Technologies general manager for Alaska, Leverette G. Hoover. “There will definitely be some challenges with keeping the existing system operational, while bringing the new system online, but the Siemens Alaska team is ready to take on this challenge face to face and ensure a successful project.”
AMAG’s Symmetry M2150 8DBC panels met the airport’s strict requirement of installing ROHS complaint products. ROHS regulations restrict the use of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, PBE, and PBDE in electronic and electrical equipment, enforcing environmentally conscious manufacturing standards. AMAG Technology, part of G4Tec, a manufacturer of scalable, integrated security management systems headquartered in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England, was the basis of the design on the specification. Symmetry Homeland’s robust platform and database along with its scalability will continue to meet the airport’s needs as it grows.
