The port is a 2 square mile area surrounded by an 11 kilometer fence line, creating a massive infrastructure to be monitored and managed. Through highly automated technology, Vidsys helps the port run all data through a 24/7 Security Control Room, with a separate control room reserved for elevated security alerts. A particular feature of the CSIM platform that the DP World London Gateway Harbor Master uses frequently includes Vidsys’ innovative, smart reporting capability.

Vidsys CSIM helps DP World London Gateway integrate Access Control, CCTV, and Perimeter Intrusion Detection (PIDS) as well as Fire Detection, Building Management and custom reporting capabilities.
