Tier IV datacenter THESEE aims for excellence and implements tailgating control with the SMACS solutions from FASTCOM

  • Located in “Île-de-France”, the datacenter Thésée is certified Tier IV and strives for excellence.

  • The flows of people and the flows of material are  automatically secured by FASTCOM's SMACS solutions and thus meet the highest security standards.

  • SMACS solutions implement high security, while enabling at the same time operational flexibility.



Lausanne, Switzerland – 6th May 2021

FASTCOM Technology SA announces the collaboration with the datacenter Thésée, based in Île-de-France (France). Tier IV certified, Thésée positions itself as a reference in the field of datacenters. The SMACS Flex and SMACS FlexMat solutions secure the flows of people and of material. SMACS solutions thus ensure optimum access security, while allowing great operational flexibility. The project is carried out in collaboration with the companies SPIE and GENETEC.


"We strive for excellence and to be a reference in the datacenter industry. FASTCOM's SMACS solutions provide us with optimal security for the various flows entering and leaving the datacenter, while allowing great operational flexibility."

M. Arbaretaz, Technical Director « Datacenter Thésée », Paris, France

The challenge: The Thésée datacenter aims for excellence in economic, technical, energy and carbon terms. Tier IV certified and 100% French host, it provides a sovereign approach to data storage. In this context, the access control is fundamental. In particular, all incoming and outgoing flows of people and material must be secured. Typical flows are people, people in wheelchairs, hand luggage and large equipment. However, this security should not come at the expense of operational flexibility and customer focus.


The solution: FASTCOM's SMACS solutions meet Thésée requirements. One SMACS Flex and three SMACS FlexMat are thus installed with a seamless integration into the architectural and technical infrastructure. These four mantraps have for some two doors and for others three doors. For the latter, a specific process for accessing the 3 rd door is set up. The flows of people, including people in wheelchairs, and the flows of material (up to “Euro pallet” size”) are simultaneously secured. Special modes, including “emergency exit” mode and “VIP” mode, are available.
