Ericsson Border and Area Security

Our cutting-edge and customizable solution is based on a detailed threat analysis to ensure the unique border- and area-security needs of each customer are addressed.

The smuggling of goods, human trafficking, illegal drug importation, economic migration and the threat of international terrorism are continual concerns for border- and area-security agencies.

Protecting borders and other strategic areas are key to preventing these illegal activities and maintaining tight national security.

Preventing unauthorized activity with many national borders stretching for hundreds of kilometers across dramatically variable terrain and climates is an on-going task. A solid border operation can be an effective deterrent to illegal activity, but successful border management requires a combination of efficient systems and effective manpower deployment, supported by strong communications.

Using our global experience and wide expertise, our experts work closely with you to analyze the current situation and pinpoint specific security and communications needs.

A long-term vision is then defined, allowing a clear plan of action to be laid out. This ensures that management and delivery of the solution remains focused on your key requirements throughout implementation.

Our customized solutions focus on three key areas:

  • Rapid dissemination of information to improve response times and decision making
  • Secure and reliable communication
  • Leading edge technology that meets today's and tomorrow's needs

Real-time for rapid response

Real-time situational awareness, and the ability to share this information across agencies, is vital to effective decision making, and appropriate and timely response.

We start with getting an accurate picture of the border by evaluating collated geographical and climatic data. Then we combine that information with incident and infrastructure data to develop a detailed risk profile.

This provides the basis for interpreting information obtained through leading-edge technology -- radar, line sensors, point sensors, infra-red and thermal sensors, alongside visual-range cameras -- that is used to detect, classify and intercept those crossing the border outside designated locations.

Data- and information-fusion functionality manages and interprets the incoming data into a common operational picture. With an effective communications infrastructure in place, this information can be shared accurately between agencies so the best decisions can be made and executed quickly.
