Essen-based secunet Security Networks AG is at CeBIT 2017 to celebrate the launch of a Smart Border Kiosk that will help speed up border checks in the future.
While achievements such as the Schengen Agreement once stoked dreams of freedom of movement without borders, that euphoria has since been replaced with pragmatic disillusionment. Passengers from non-EU countries in particular often need a lot of patience when it comes to flying in and out of EU countries. There is a huge amount of data that needs to be recorded and checked and that takes a lot of time, not to mention input from border control officers. With passenger numbers continuously rising, the situation is only getting more difficult. To help ease things a little in the future, secunet Security Networks AG has developed a terminal that it is unveiling at CeBIT 2017 in Hannover.
Dubbed the secunet easykiosk, the terminal will be able to securely automate the most time-consuming aspect of border controls. Passengers simply enter all the necessary data independently and quickly on the new self-service terminal before stepping up to the actual border control counter. Everyone benefits from secunet easykiosk – border control officers will see a higher passenger throughput and improved security level, passengers will enjoy shorter waiting times and a convenient and transparent arrival and departure process, while airport operators will benefit from more efficient passenger handling processes and improved service levels for travelers.
