CEM Systems prKeflavik International Airport lies on the Reykjanes peninsula, seven minutes from the town of Reykjanesbaer (Keflavik) and 50 km southwest of Iceland’s capital Reykjavik. Keflavik is the main international airport for Iceland and features modern passengerand commercial facilities as well as extensive aircraft operation areas. Sitting astride the North Atlantic route linking Europe and North America, the airport is of major importance for technical stops and as an alternate airport on the North Atlantic.

In July 2005 expansion works began at Keflavik Airport and operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the airport required a highly reliable security solution that could be customised to meet their specific environment, as well as help secure the 1.8m passengers they service per year.

High security solution…

The CEM AC2000 security management solution was installed by CEM Reseller, Securitas HF and proved the ideal choice for Keflavik Airport. Featuring advanced hardware and sophisticated software, CEM was able to customise the AC2000 system to meet the airport’s unique requirements.

“As the only airport-tailored access control system, the CEM AC2000 system was the best solution for Keflavik International Airport,” commented Einar Gudlaugsson, Product Development Manager of Securitas HF. “Working in consultation with CEM we designed a highly secure and flexible access control system to meet all of the requests of Keflavik Airport. The advanced security system design incorporates a dual redundant server, integrated CCTV, elevator control, and door level intelligence using CEM S600e fingerprint card readers and the CEM xProx 200 MiFare smart card range of readers,” Gudlaugsson continued.
