NEC’s Integra-ID5 multimodal biometric identification system accepted by WIN

Categories Biometrics News  |  Law Enforcement

NEC Corporation of America announced that its Integra-ID5 multimodal biometric identification system solution was accepted by the Western Identification Network, an organization of western U.S. state and local law enforcement agencies.

Awarded to NEC in October 2011, the contract follows multiple phases of testing including factory acceptance test, system acceptance test at each of the eight WIN member states, and a user acceptance test.

The WIN network is comprised of a shared MBIS processing service bureau that enables users to search member agencies’ databases which contain criminal and civil biometrics records, including interfaces to neighboring states and agencies.

NEC provided this new upgrade to WIN as a service in which NEC hosts and manages the WIN solution at its data centers.

NEC has also provided many other services during implementation, including data migration and conversion such as the de-duplication of 18 million tenprint records and search of all unknown latent images, incorporating several new technologies such as multiple algorithms and multiple encoding to improve accuracy, reliability and availability, and a customized workflow and computerized criminal history file interface for each of the eight member states, with support for hundreds of submitting.

Additionally, NEC provided a shared interface to the FBI’s next generation identification system over the CJIS WAN, an active/active disaster recovery system, a new latent case management system where all latent images and transactions are stored in new FBI EBTS/EFS (Extended Feature Set) full annotation, Type 9 format, and an integrated NIST Archive repository with web-based client access that retains all registered and transactional data in standards based FBI EBTS format.

“We are proud to work with WIN, a forward-looking organization among law enforcement agencies in North America,” said Raffie Beroukhim, vice president of biometrics solutions division at NEC Corporation of America. “This milestone is testament to the skill and efforts of our team as well as the quality of our MBIS solution. The implemented Integra ID5 MBIS solution, with its multi-state configuration, is highly functional, easy to configure, with accuracy and reliability unmatched by any solution on the market today.”

The NEC MBIS solution is part of NEC’s Safer Cities platform, which uses smart technology to maximize all aspects of installed programs.

NEC provides the solution via an identity as a service model, preventing any upfront costs. It is entirely owned and managed by NEC and is hosted in the company’s data centers.
