Automated Border Control

Automated border control – easy going with easygate

With passenger numbers continually on the rise, passenger aircraft increasing in size, and consciousness of security issues coming to the forefront, airport staff, technology and infrastructure worldwide are now facing major challenges. The secunet easygate Automated Border Control System ensures the satisfaction of all parties when it comes to border controls:

  • Automated Border Control Systems can massively reduce the security-related workload of border control agencies. secunet easygate performs thorough checks of the authenticity of the identification document by both optical and electronic means. The software scans in the electronic facial image of the traveller and compares the biometric data against the traveller’s live image. Border control enforcement officers can monitor the process and focus on those travellers for whom more extensive checks are necessary.

  • Airports benefit from the automation of another step in the passenger process without having to modify the existing infrastructure. Passenger processing becomes much more efficient, which achieves higher passenger processing rates – a decisive advantage in the face of international competition.

  • Travellers in possession of an electronic ID document will enjoy being able to pass through much more quickly. It takes no time at all for them to be processed through the secunet easygate and across the national border, something they can do intuitively and independently. For these travellers, queueing is a thing of the past.
