Identification solutions

Face provides solutions that extend from a single stand-alone identification (ID) system to large integrated national ID systems. We at Face are biometric experts and we, therefore, incorporate biometrics in the ID solutions we offer. This ensures secure, credible and true identification of groups of people, whether they be citizens or employees.

Face has developed a host of products that can be easily included in our solutions above, or be provided separately. These products are customised to meet each client’s individual requirements.

Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS)

The AFIS package comprises all aspects required for setting up complex identification applications, such as a high-speed matching engine, fingerprint search-database management and client-server architecture. The AFIS has a scalable architecture, allowing the matching server component to be installed on several matching computers to distribute the workload and increase matching speed. Therefore, the AFIS can search large-scale databases ranging from hundreds of thousands to hundreds of millions of fingerprints.

Unlike other more costly AFIS systems, Face’s AFIS runs on standard PC hardware and is easy to set up. The matching server can be installed either on one computer or on several computers, facilitating workload distribution and increased matching speed.
