South Korean biometrics firm Suprema has launched a biometric access controller for centralised systems called CoreStation.In a statement, Suprema noted that CoreStation is an intelligent door controller which provides advantages of biometric-enabled security over centralized access control systems.Designed for mid to enterprise-level systems, CoreStation handles up to 500,000 users with a fingerprint matching speed of up to 400,000 matches per second.CoreStation is capable of offering comprehensive access control functionalities for up to 132 access points along with the company's BioStar 2 security platform. The device also provides centralized biometric template management and also interfaces with complete set of reader technologies including RS-485(OSDP) and Wiegand.”The new CoreStation is designed to fulfill the demand of biometric technology within the more-secure, larger scale access control applications with centralized topology. While providing intelligent controller functionalities, the device also manages fingerprint matching and biometric data storage under secure location. With the addition of this intelligent biometric controller to Suprema's existing access control portfolio, our customers will have more choices and flexibility in designing their security systems,” said Hanchul Kim, Director of Global Business at Suprema. “With its extension module peripherals, reader compatibility and versatility in application, CoreStation will provide perfect access control solutions for both new installations as well as a replacement of existing systems,” Kim added.Suprema also launched BioEntry R2 this week, a dedicated slave fingerprint/RF reader to complete biometric-enabled centralized access control system.
