Vicon, working in conjunction with SimplexGrinnell, a market leader in fire and life- safety systems, has provided  Fairbanks International Airport with an  integrated video security solution. It combines a ViconNet video management system which incorporates ViconNet VI video intelligence, with access control capabilities from Software House, to create a fully integrated, IP-based solution that spans the entire airport, inside and out.

Of particular interest is the use of ViconNet VI video analytics software that immediately identifies individuals walking in the "wrong" direction through or around security checkpoints. Prior to its installation, if a passenger slipped from a non-secure area to a secure area without passing through security, it would have been necessary to evacuate the entire secure area and require all passengers to endure another round of screening. With the new video intelligence in place, recorded video allows specific individuals to be quickly identified when they bypass security and only they need to be apprehended.
