Prominent American University Secures New Facility with L-1 4G Fingerprint Readers

While the use of biometrics in higher education is still relatively a new concept in North America, it has seen success in the few facilities it has been implemented in. The latest educational institution to implement a biometric access control solution is considered to be one of the top research universities in the world. By day, over 40,000 students roam the campus grounds and by night over 10,000 university housing residents go back to their residence halls and plazas.

With such a large student population, security becomes a big issue. “Their brand new facility needed to incorporate a number of features, that would reflect not only the progressive nature of the institution but also address the critical security issues of an on-campus police station”, said Shiraz Kapadia, COO, Bioscrypt (The Enterprise Access Division of L-1 Identity Solutions). Access to new rooms such as a holding cell and the transportation and protection of evidence transferred from the main station into the secure property room, required restricted access to certain personnel.

Critical tasks such as the ones mentioned above, called for a physical access control solution which would be robust enough to handle the different layers of security clearance within the building, but still simple enough to handle the management of the system. Enter Bioscrypt (The Enterprise Access Division of L-1 Identity Solutions) and their market-tested and customer proven 4G solutions.
