Munich International Airport is Germany’s second-busiest airport, serving nearly 30 million passengers in 2005. The massive increase in users results in higher demand for parking capacity and security for passengers, airport staff and airline staff. By adopting an efficient parking management and surveillance system in the Comfort Parking scheme, the system manages parking spaces, improves vehicle flow and saves in operational costs.

The Munich Airport car parks are secured with GeoVision License Plate Recognition (GV-LPR) systems. The system provides number plates recognition function to work with Comfort Parking online car park booking service and car park fence systems. The system can capture and recognize number plates from entrances and exits. The captured plate numbers are then processed and checked against the Comfort Parking database. The whole process takes only a few seconds. If the plate numbers match the database, the fence will open to allow passage.

The system is a digital license plate recognition system that utilizes Neural Network Technology of artificial intelligence. It can generate data for analysis of parking status and converge them into 3rd party equipment. It provides seamless integration with GeoVision DVR with POS text overlay function for parking management.

With the employment of the new system, Comfort Parking can accelerate the time efficiency for airport parking. Nearly 100 percent accuracy and speedy process time of recognition contributes to the smoothness of car parking services.

The system successfully co-exists with the Comfort Parking site and access equipment of car parks. Thus reducing the handling costs at the airport parking and the data can be transferred online 24/7.

The plate recognition system not only monitors the number plate, but also records the driver’s face, drive-in time and driver’s name, when available. A customer does not have a chance to change their plate. Nor can a customer claim to have lost their parking ticket. The researchable video and data will provide video evidence, and help trace back to the time of arrival and prevent parking fee loss.

Virtualization and Data Center Security: What You Need to Know for 2014

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
