Changi Airport Group Entrusts Bosch Integrated Solutions
Singapore Changi Airport is the seventh busiest international airport today. It is also a major air hub in Asia, serving more than 100 airlines flying to more than 200 cities in about 60 countries and territories worldwide. In 2011, Singapore Changi Airport handled more than 46 million passenger movements and a flight takes off or lands at Changi Airport roughly once every 100 seconds.
New public address and video surveillance systems from Bosch installed at Singapore Airport
To enable faster response to emergencies and to allow better control of the security and communication systems in place, Singapore Changi Airport sought a reliable partner to modernize its existing infra-structure. The operator, Changi Airport Group (CAG), specifically required public address and video surveillance systems across different terminals and zones. With AutoDome and FlexiDome cameras, Praesideo Public Address Systems and the Building Integration System (BIS) from Bosch, CAG managed to achieve this objective.
Changi Airport is the seventh busiest international airport in the world, offering flights to more than 200 cities in over 60 countries. This important Asian transportation hub is used by more than 46 million passengers every year. In order to guarantee smooth operations and monitor the day-to-day activities on the ground, CAG works with a range of partners, such as ground handlers, airport auxiliary police and government agencies.
One of the main requirements for the new technology CAG wanted to introduce was that different devices could be interconnected across terminals for all the partners involved. As the airport is in full operation around the clock, a further condition was that the installation of the new system had to take place without disturbing passengers any more than necessary.
High security standards across all terminals and zones
To simultaneously address all these conditions, CAG purchased AutoDome and FlexiDome cameras from Bosch, which were able to be interconnected with various third party video systems at Changi Airport Terminals 1, 2 and 3. Public address systems from the Praesideo Series were also installed at Terminals 1 and 2. The fourth terminal, Changi Airport Budget Terminal, required a complete integration of the video surveillance system with an Access Control System for normal and high-security restricted areas. To meet this challenge, CAG chose the Building Integration System (BIS) from Bosch. BIS is a modular platform that combines different building management functions in one single solution. Furthermore, it responds flexibly to the unique building management requirements of the particular end-user.
Initial Business Objective
There was a need to upgrade the existing system to allow better control and monitoring of all security and communication systems, and enable faster responses to emergencies and greater overall effectiveness.For an international airport, safety is of paramount importance. Thus, there are stringent requirements on the product features and specifications such as performance and aesthetics.
