Details matter, especially when it comes to safety and security. Was that an “O” or a “Q” on the license plate of the vehicle that entered the lot last night? Who exited the vehicle, and what were they carrying? What did they have when they returned, and how quickly can you locate the relevant video? If you don’t have the right camera system in place, it’s almost impossible to answer these crucial questions.
Physical security that was often a second thought weighing against information security, is entirely changing its pose today. With threats starting from people inside an organization to external entities, organizations across the globe struggle for managing their security posture day by day. To help CTOs, CIOs, and CEOs find the right Physical Security Technology solution provider, a distinguished selection panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts, and CIOReview’s editorial board has selected a list of Physical Security Technology solution providers that exhibit innovative technologies and strategies.
Cisco Systems has launched new IP-cameras that boast the processing power to perform more complex video and audio analytics to support applications such as license-plate recognition and detection of gunshots and unattended objects. The video surveillance cameras —the 6500PD and 7530PD— include a digital signal processing (DSP) chip in addition to the core ARM processor found in standard cameras.

AGT International, a global leader in city solutions, and Cisco, the worldwide leader in IT, have formed a “Smart City Global Strategic Alliance” that will deliver the promise of the Internet through edge analytics and cloud technologies that dramatically change the way cities are managed and safeguarded. In a joint press release, the companies explained how the two companies will work together: “Built around AGT’s state-of-the-art urban management platform, the solution applies multiple sensing and analytical technologies such as video and acoustic analytics, social media engagement, license plate recognition, facial recognition, mobile crowd sourcing, mobile applications for city civil workers, smart waste and other sources. AGT’s city fusion platform, powered by Cisco Unified Computing System™ technology, uses big data analysis to reduce false alerts while increasing incident detection rates. Sharing a common platform, infrastructure and management allows agencies to be more efficient and cost-effective, especially when coping with decreasing budgets. These benefits can all be achieved in a decentralized city administration model, where agencies’ autonomy is maintained while sharing and reuse is maximized.

Experimental IP-connected bus route in Paris French Public Transportation provider RATP is currently conducting an experimental “Internet Protocol (IP) in Motion” project on the bus line No. 38 in Paris. The technology provides realtime connectivity for ‘Dilidam,’ a key information initiative for travellers on the RATP transport network, including real time transit and localised passenger information, as well as news or entertainment clips. The on board video surveillance system and other professional applications now have permanent IP connectivity, improving RATP’s customers’ security, safety and travel information. IP Connectivity is now available “on the move” due to an open ecosystem including wireless service providers of any type as well as private wireless networks and a clearing house business function which aggregates data flows and reconciles billing information. Cisco’s Mobile 3200 Series Wireless & Mobile router and Cisco IOS IP mobility solutions connect the vehicles to the RATP back end servers. IP mobility provides an automatic connection and seamless roaming using the different wireless technologies, Wi-Fi and EDGE, and networks. With this innovative approach, RATP and Cisco are demonstrating that IP Mobility technologies can seamlessly extend the enterprise premises to “on the move” LANs. A panel of industry experts at Networkers 2005 awarded RATP the Mobility and Wireless award for its innovative implementation of Wireless and Mobility last December in Cannes. “IP mobility extends the reach of enterprise intranets to professional vehicle fleets. IP connectivity across wireless technologies and networks allows key customers applications to continuously run even ‘on the move’,” […]
