Central Bank of Nigeria secured by CEM Systems
CEM AC2000 chosen for system security features, scalability and integration capabilities
Belfast, xx Feb 2013 --- CEM Systems, from Tyco Security Products, today announced
that the Central Bank of Nigeria has selected the AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) access
control and security management to secure many of its premises across Nigeria. The
systems have been provided by CEM Approved Reseller Pentagon Distribution and will be
installed by Geoffield and other local Nigerian Integrators.
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is charged by the Federal Republic of Nigeria with the
overall control and administration of the monetary and financial sector policies of the
Federal Government.
“CEM AC2000 SE was chosen because it is a powerful and fully integrated security
management system, offering powerful access control, alarm processing, photo badging,
power management and integration to third party systems” said Edward Van Trotsenburg
Export Manager, Pentagon . “CEM are also able to provide fully integrated biometric
solutions with the S610f fingerprint reader and the S3030f portable fingerprint reader. This
means that CBN can efficiently increase security levels at required areas.”
“The Central Bank of Nigeria required an access control solution that provides the highest
level of security, and that is scalable to meet the needs of their different offices throughout
the country now and in the future. AC2000 was the ideal solution to help CBN meet all their
requirements” said Philip Verner, Regional Sales Director, EMEA, CEM Systems. “The Central
Bank of Nigera is one of many recent Finance industry wins for CEM Systems and represents
a growing trend for CEM in the sector and the African market.”
AC2000 SE provides an advanced level of integration using industry standard interfaces to
link to third party systems. CBN required the AC2000 system to integrate with Bosch video
interface in order to control video and access via one solution. AC2000 application Alarm
Event Display (AED) responds to all alarm situations in real time providing a dynamic onscreen interface to external CCTV systems with facilities for CCTV switching, remote door
broadcasting and audio output in response to alarm events.
AC2000 VIPPS (Visual Imaging & Pass Production System) allows CBN administrators to
produce professional quality permanent and temporary ID passes for staff and visitors. CBN
also utilize CEM’s AC2000 WEB Visitors application. This application has all the power of the
original AC2000 Visitors feature but with the added benefit of being accessible via the web.
This means that users can log in remotely via a web page to manage visitors without the
need for client access control software on their PC.
To meet the requirement for minimal downtime on site, CEM’s AC2000 Failover was selected
to create a secondary server that can take over from the main server in the event of system
failure. The switch between the two servers is automatic and results in zero data loss, with
notification of the event being sent to system users and administrators immediately.
In addition to the numerous software options chosen by the Central Bank of Nigeria, a
variety of CEM hardware solutions are used on site. CBN is installing CEM’s S610e
intelligent card reader, which gives full off-line validation and decision making at the point
of entry, even when host communication is not available. The S610e also features a keypad
and backlit LCD which provides meaningful messages to cardholders for example Wrong
Time Zone, Lost/Stolen Card and Access Granted.
Given CBN’s focus on providing the utmost security Pentagon together with Geoffield and
the other installation partners are deploying CEM’s S610f biometric fingerprint readers in
areas that required additional security. The CEM S610f is a fully integrated biometric and
access control reader that is used to control access to restricted areas, which is managed
and monitored by security staff using the AC2000 SE.
Additional hardware also included the S3030 Portable reader that can be used for ID card
validation at temporary entrances which have no power, and can be used as a mobile device
for random checks within pre-defined zones. The display of cardholder details on the reader
such as Name, Date of Birth and Job Title and also cardholder photograph, allows for visual
verification of cardholders.
