Avinor Oslo Airport expands its Qognify security solution

Qognify, the provider of big data solutions for physical security and operations, has announced that it has recently expanded its security solution at Gardermoen Oslo Airport with Situator, the company´s market-leading situation management solution, the company said.

Avinor, the group responsible for managing Norway´s airports, decided to not only expand and upgrade Oslo Airport, but unify its different systems to create a unified security platform.

A Qognify video management solution user since 2008, the Airport, with the support of Racom, Qognify´s partner, the airport now added Situator Situation Management solution. The comprehensive platform integrates all existing systems – Qognify and third-party, including thousands of surveillance cameras, access control and other sensors. Situator structures and correlates the information from these different systems for greater situational awareness, incident management and effective response.

Being a major European airport, Oslo serves many Schengen flights, meaning flights to the 26 European countries that have officially abolished passport and all other types of border control at their borders. Allowing the area to function as a single country for international travel purposes dictates special operational requirements using advanced Flexigate system.

The Flexigate system avoids incidents where the wrong doors are opened to ensure that passengers who should go through the border control actually do so. Situator integrates with the advanced Flexigate access control system, and overrides switching of gates between Schengen and non-Schengen flights, as well as the domestic flights if the control systems are out of operations.

Our mission is to optimize operations, security, safety, network and communication to critical infrastructure and critical community functions, for the purpose of facilitating to future needs.
