SOC of Kansas City Southern de México

Background and challenges

Activity in a Security Operations Center is demanding, so relying on reference companies is key. GESAB was able to be part of the security integration project led by Ikusi ISS Mexico for Kansas City Southern in the reconstruction of its SOC. A control center where the spaces should be optimized and provide security to the operation through an efficient monitoring of the security cameras of the railway network.



Space optimised for monitoring the transport network cameras that, in turn, provide security to the operation. Site procurement to keep it in excellent condition. Advantis NG consoles, Videowall 5×2 55” LCD, 24/7 ergonomic chairs and logo labels were installed for a setting equivalent to the corporate identity of KCS.

Also, a crisis room was designed and installed for eight people within the project, based on the Advantis NG concept.

Screens with live camera monitoring, network manager and security touch screen, key position for the supervisor, as well as a panoramic display of the operation from the crisis room for joint collaboration, better decision-making and business control. Consoles with backlit logo.



GESAB’s close work with the client made it possible to execute a custom-made project, in which the corporate image of the brand is present throughout the facility. A project approached from a 360-degree perspective that was able to adapt to the client’s needs.

The Latin American Security Association ALAS recognized GESAB project for Kansas City in the category of private companies projects. An award that once again guarantees the good work of GESAB team.
