NEXCOM’s Fanless Visual Edge Computer Recognizes You at the Border

Application Story: NEXCOM’s Fanless Visual Edge Computer Recognizes You at the Border

As we encounter consistent yearly global population growth and unexpected pandemic outbreak, automated border control solutions are becoming more desired than ever. Nowadays, for travelers to enter the border of their destination, they can undergo an identity verification process by AI recognition, together with biometric verification via passport, facial, and fingerprints at eGates. NEXCOM is committed to implement the 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and Intel® 600 series chipset designed fanless visual edge computers into airports and ports. When installed, this computer can reduce labor costs and minimize contact while enhancing efficiency and security; leading to a fulfilling traveler’s experience.


When executed at customs, NEXCOM’s NDiS B561 fanless visual edge computer provides travelers with an intuitive and convenient border crossing process. Depending on the setting, operators may request up to three HDMI ports for three 4k2k independent displays and eight USB 3.2 for cameras, fingerprint scanner, passport scanner, and other peripherals. As this fanless visual edge computer connects to the border control system via WAN, it utilizes either LAN, Wi-Fi 6E, 4G, 5G, and AI recognition technologies to validate the traveler’s identity from the cameras and scanners.
