Having a trustworthy surveillance system in place provides ease of functioning for the airport and all involved services. Axis delivers on that commitment and we are very happy to be associated with the products and solutions, and look forward to continue working with them to further make Sharjah International Airport a secure destination.” Sharjah International Airport team.
Sharjah International Airport (SIA) was established in 1932 and was the first airport in the United Arab Emirates. From passenger flights to all types of air freight, SIA is a convenient international gateway to the United Arab Emirates. SIA sought a flexible, scalable solution that could keep pace with its growing operations while maintaining the highest level of security and safety that staff and the traveling passengers expect from one of the busiest travel destinations in the world.
Axis was recommended by Zahra Technology to meet the specific requirements of SIA. The Axis cameras were chosen because of their ability to seamlessly integrate with the VMS and access control, as well as their high-quality images, robust design and low environmental impact. The airport installed the following network cameras: fixed outdoor AXIS P1357-E, fixed indoor AXIS P3367-V, PTZ outdoor AXIS Q6055-E, AXIS P1365 Mk II for entrances and outdoor bullet AXIS P1427-LE with infrared capabilities. The surveillance feed is monitored by the government security entity.
The IP-based system makes it easy for the government security entity to monitor multiple feeds at once and keep watch over the entire airport, indoors and out. The airport can use its resources more effectively, and it has greater control over video and who can access it. The systems have enhanced security, increased operational efficiency and support scalability as the airport continues to grow.
