"We built Portoss to create a legacy of providing the very best solutions in partnership with Leon," said Alfonso Huerta Jimenez, CEO of Portoss. "This project marks the culmination of years of successfully delivering to that promise. This serves as a demonstration of Portoss' ability to effectively apply GRI's biometrics technology for large-scale urban activities and provides a foundation for Portoss to further dedicate itself to national security, transportation, and law enforcement projects."
To achieve this task, Portoss will integrate iris capability across the city, install miles of fiber optic cable, and construct the central iris database with power to enlarge the scale to include private sector corporations for a variety of applications.
GRI's suite of iris-based biometric technologies has been vetted across the public sector including U.S. government agencies, the Pentagon, and the U.S. Air Force. Iris identification access control and identity management products developed and manufactured by GRI are currently in use, safeguarding daily operations of major corporate clients, including Bank of America.
"The City of Leon is located just two hours south of Guadalajara, the second largest city in Mexico and four hours north of Mexico City. Our central location has catalyzed the City into becoming the foundation for one of the most important regions in the country," said Ricardo Sheffield, Mayor of Leon. "Because of our growth and increase in investment over the last 10 years, the City is highly visible in the country. This project will further cement our position as a leader."
