Vision-Box® will share a new approach which unifies all air, sea and land entry/exit points, providing border control authorities with an holistic border perspective, supported by real-time data to ensure tighter control and integrity.
A single control console allows border agencies to have a full picture of what is happening at all entry/exit points. Using state-of-the-art technology (i.e. biometrics, surveillance, digital ID, frequent traveller programs…) enables centralized intelligence gathering and improves the quality of information which permits tighter control and enhanced immigration system integrity, making it possible, for example, to identify individuals that enter the country through a land border and exit through an airport, or overstay their visit without a legal visa status.
The adoption of a broad-based, centralized platform able to manage and control all borders, especially within the context of cooperative and exchange programs between countries, is the best strategy to ensure a modern and efficient border management. Additionally, it presents an opportunity for mobility and trade facilitation, while enhancing national security.
Vision-Box provides solutions which enable the implementation of a Nationwide Border Control Framework (NBCF) including security check points, self-boarding and ABC eGates and border control kiosks, which are connected to a powerful IT platform, vb i-shield®. vb i-shield® is a complete solution for border control, empowering authorities with all the necessary tools to ensure total security and increased efficiency while providing a better service and experience to users.
The adoption of The Nationwide Border Control Framework has delivered the following benefits:
• Enhanced National Security
• Enhanced Immigration System Integrity
• Facilitation of Travel and Trade
Miguel Leitmann, Senior Vice President of Vision-Box® S.A., highlights that “Vision-Box has been working with several countries to tackle the challenges of border security and build a Nationwide Border Control Framework (NBCF) which allows an integrated approach to border protection and increased efficiency while still ensuring a positive traveller experience”.
Vision-Box® will showcase its ground breaking solutions for border control at the “Border Management and Technologies Summit” conference, taking place in Istanbul, from the 2nd to the 5th of July, 2013.
