Ideco has rolled out its new all-in-one mobile biometrics unit in South Africa.
The Biometric Identity Management System (BIMS) enables biometric identification across a range of modalities, from fingerprint through to iris scanning.
According to a statement by the company, BIMS is highly mobile, readily configurable and can be rolled out rapidly in any environment requiring agile identification and processing of crowds. It is capable of six biometric modalities and delivers a full range of connectivity options including Bluetooth, WiFi, GSM, GPS, LAN and Cloud. It is encapsulated in a device the size of a ruggedized laptop and employs intelligent power management for prolonged battery life of up to 12 hours.
“Until now, no one could deliver six modalities in a single portable device, which can be used in any configuration for multiple levels of identification, as well as integrating into existing enterprise systems quickly and easily,” commented Ideco CEO Marius Coetzee. “BIMS is unlike any other solution currently on the market for biometric user identification and access control. It enables agile, rapid roll-out of advanced biometrics-based solution; and has relevance for both the public and private sector across any number of verticals.”
