Secure a City

Case Study
New security and technology demands are increasing in North America. Video surveillance, observation monitoring, the latest ETHERNET IP networking video products, and surveillance management systems are essential to protecting people, property, and maintaining urban security.

The utilization of state-of-the art electronic surveillance systems to efficiently protect, monitor and document company premises, production facilities, and manufacturing sites are at full scale. Strategically securing and protecting extensive infrastructure networks of highways, bridges, and tunnels that support critically sensitive activities, locations, and major population centers has become paramount due to an increased focus on homeland security and related projects. Security sites often present erratic environmental and weather conditions suited only for ruggedized, proven solutions that demonstrate cutting edge technological capabilities, rich certification approvals, and endless expandability when correctly applied.

The challenge here is to provide the uninterrupted flow of critical surveillance data between the right kind of integrated security technologies and appropriate key locations. A redundant and dual redundant network of appropriate Managed Surveillance Systems featuring ruggedized Video-Over-IP Cameras, Wireless Ethernet Modems, and Industrial Ethernet switches configured into the proper physical geometry can do the job of protecting population centers, municipality and utility interests, Military installations, transportation infrastructure, Education facilities, and strategic business environments.

Integrating Bosch Video IP cameras, Esteem Wireless Ethernet Access Points, and Hirschmann redundant protocol switches fulfill the complex and dynamic requirements of protecting metro area infrastructures and other high-risk sites such as major ports or power generation plants.

This type of system or precision-networked system components are rapidly and cost-effectively deployed while enabling security breach detections, receiving alerts, controlling, archiving, and directing video monitorization from a central location using Bosch Vidos Pro Software.

By employing Hirschmann’s Mach 4000 10Gigabit switches capable of necessitating 10Gigabit HIPER Ring Trunks and Redundant Ring Coupling very large and fast convergent networks can be constructed. Bosch Autodome 500i Series Video IP Cameras with PTZ and 36x Optical Zoom connected directly to Hirschmann IP switches that allow switch configurations of RJ45, Single and Multi-Mode Fiber Ports.

The Bosch Autodome provides significant cost savings since interchangeable “swap” modules simplify maintenance and upgrades. Supporting advanced alarm handling and diagnostics, privacy masking, digital image stabilization, and Autotrack II motion tracking high risk environments become secure. Video surveillance transmissions can be accomplished via Esteem Wireless Modems networked in self healing mesh, point-to-point, or point-to-multipoint links.

The Esteem modems deliver multiple levels of wireless security protections essential to application factors such as extensive network size, links that cross water, frequency interference, and preventing unauthorized access.
