Quanergy Helps Secure Over 100 Critical Infrastructure Sites Globally
Quanergy’s 3D security solutions are deployed by major data centers, airports, utilities, prisons, and transportation authorities to increase security, reduce false alarms and slash operating costs
SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Quanergy Systems, Inc., (OTC:QNGY) a leading provider of LiDAR sensors and smart 3D solutions, today announced that more than 30 companies around the world have chosen Quanergy’s 3D LiDAR solutions to protect over 100 critical infrastructure sites.
Quanergy’s LiDAR-based portfolio has been selected to protect critical infrastructure assets thanks to its ability to combat alarm fatigue by dramatically reducing costly false alarms. Quanergy’s solutions bring the operators’ attention to what really matters most by focusing on real threats and providing actionable insights with hyper accuracy. After deploying Quanergy’s solutions, critical infrastructure sites such as data centers, utilities, and transportation agencies no longer need to hire expensive guard services in order to deal with thousands of false alarms generated by their legacy perimeter intrusion detection (PID) systems, helping save millions of dollars each year.
Quanergy’s solutions allow customers to keep leveraging existing investments by augmenting their camera-based PID systems, enabling them to locate with unprecedented level accuracy the exact location of a potential intruder.
Quanergy’s 3D LiDAR sensors and perception software address all major mission-critical security use cases including perimeter intrusion detection, server rack and cabinet security, mobile security towers, man trap/vestibule access controls, and rooftop security through the following core competencies:
- A rich portfolio of seamlessly integrated hardware and software solutions
- Products for all use cases, be it detecting really small objects or continuously tracking objects throughout a large perimeter
- Over 95% reduction in false alarms
- 95% object (people or vehicle) detection, tracking and classification accuracy
- 360° 3D coverage
- Up to 15,000 square meters of coverage per single sensor
- No privacy concerns or recording of Personal Identifiable Information (PII)
- Ability to create a mesh network of sensors/servers and continuously track an object as they move across the entire site, virtually for an unlimited range
- Broad ecosystem with over 20 integrations with leading VMS, PSIM and camera vendors
Michela Menting, research director, ABI Research, said: “LiDAR solutions are ideally suited for critical infrastructure applications to provide enhanced perimeter defense with a much lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to standard cameras. The implementation of far fewer LiDAR sensors can achieve a highly sophisticated and reliable perimeter defense, which can also provide a host of additional benefits by synergizing with existing Video Management Systems (VMSs). Quanergy is a leading LiDAR provider of advanced security solutions for critical infrastructure. Their large number of commercial deployments is a testament to the impact of their offering and to the strong momentum that is building in this industry.”
Enzo Signore, chief marketing officer, Quanergy Systems, Inc., said: “The importance of critical infrastructure security can’t be underestimated. Security breaches in this sector aren’t just a nuisance; they can pose risks to economic security and public health and safety. Cutting corners isn’t an option. With LiDAR-based sensors, we’re helping our partners and their customers ensure that vital infrastructure stays fully protected with increased accuracy and visibility that goes beyond what was previously possible.”
