Surveillance For UK Airport Group

Our client, a major UK International Airport, required their legacy and disparate CCTV systems to be consolidated and updated.

Working with a leading UK security integrator, Mytel was able to provide the technical leadership and governance that saw the airport decommission multiple legacy CCTV systems, and replace them with a state of the art system from the number-one global VMS supplier, Genetec.

Mytel obtained UK Counter Terror clearance, and undertook General Security Awareness Training (GSAT) in order to be able to review, anlalyse, plan and update the airport's surveillance infrastructure and platform.

About Project

Prior to Mytel engagement, the airport had gone to tender for a security integrator to become their CCTV framework provider. This meant a transistion of support between the a previous incumbent that had supplied services for 35-years, to a completely new supplier.

Circa. £3m had been spent to date, and no migration work had started.

Mytel was able to provide structure, planning and technical guidance that would see the transition of services between suppliers, and the replacement of all surveillance platforms with a single core VMS from global leader, Genetec. 

Over 3,000 cameras were migrated between platforms, allowing decommissioning to realise significant operational cost savings, and planning was undertaken to ensure a regualr refresh funding source was provided to keep the estate current.

Mytel helped establish a CCTV governance board, we created a set of standards and a Surveillance Code of Connection & Practice, we rationalised inputs such as disabled toilet alarms, panic alarms, door alarms and intercoms, and much more.

We were able to save the client circa. £500,000 on a car park initiative by modifying the surveillance scheme from planned fixed dome cameras to multi-sensor cameras, reducing cabling, network ports, installation costs, annual licensing and costs for camera hardware.
