HID Global Enhances Safety and Facilities Management at National University of Singapore Suzhou Research Institute
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, today
announced that its networked access controllers and readers have been
selected by the National University of Singapore Suzhou Research
Institute (NUSRI) in China to enhance campus security and facility
management. The solution fully leverages the university's existing
TCP/IP network investment to deliver a web-based access control system
that provides centralized monitoring and report generation, as well as
the ability to establish staff access level settings and control the
usage of facilities.
With dozens of geographically dispersed buildings that house expensive
equipment, NUSRI's new access control solution includes HID Global's VertX®
V1000 network controllers, VertX®
V100 door/reader interfaces, and smart card readers to monitor
access to different buildings and enable advance reservations
functionality to access key campus facilities such as laboratories,
hazardous materials storage rooms and machine rooms.
"After our extensive assessment, we selected HID Global's physical
access control solutions for its leading technology and comprehensive
product functionality," said Mr. Xu, project manager of integrators of
NUSRI. "The open architecture IP-based access control solution supports
the system already deployed in the field to save cost. Additionally, the
system is scalable to enable future expansion, which addresses the
growing demands of our campus and subsidiaries, while also providing
better cost control."
"We are very pleased that NUSRI selected HI Global's solution to
enhance their security and facility management," said Eric Chiu, sales
director of Greater China with HID Global. "We will continue working
closely with the local integrator to identify and solve the school's
future security requirements as its needs evolve."
Benefits of the new system include:
Increased security: Tracks control access restrictions in labs,
residence halls and other areas, while improving reporting so the
security team can provide building usage input for access policy
Facilities usage control: Grants access to authorized personnel
within predefined reservation hours to ensure the facilities are
properly used and to prevent accidents caused by unauthorized access.
Cost and time savings: Leverages the existing network and
credentials to save overhead costs related to wiring and accelerate
the installation time. The scalable solutions can be quickly expanded
or adapted as the need demands.
Interoperability: Seamlessly integrates with video surveillance
and fire alarm systems for multi-dimensional security management.
