GSN Exclusive: Integrated security system will safeguard new WTC site

With security awareness heightened since the terrorist attacks of 10 years ago, it only makes sense that the new World Trade Center site be equipped with one of the most state-of-the-art security systems available. This is why the new site will utilize a security system capable of providing efficient response and prevention coordination amongst police, fire, port authorities and building owners, as well as combining physical security information management, identity and access management capabilities from security cameras, security gates, doors and portals, heating and cooling systems, and fire alarms.

The new system is said to offer “unprecedented security, with systems operating at the memorial, commercial buildings and other facilities across” the World Trade Center campus into one integrated system. It provides a single platform to make common information available to everyone involved, allowing for better coordination and response in the event of an emergency situation.

Yet, while the entire systems shares information, each building’s security system will remain autonomous. This means that each building owner will still have full control of his/her system; it is just the security data that will be shared.

The entire security project – which will eventually integrate identity and access credential management; video surveillance; intrusion and fire alarms; building management systems; intercoms; radio communications; vehicle scheduling and management systems; and chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear detection systems – is scheduled to be completed in the next three years, with each aspect being installed incrementally as buildings are completed.
