Cisco video surveillance solutions help Navi Mumbai Police to track, monitor and prevent crime.
Navi Mumbai, which is in close proximity to Mumbai is a rapidly growing business hub in Maharashtra. It is fast emerging as a key IT hub and requires an efficient integrated transport system, adequate and regular power supply, state-of-the-art telecom network in order to enhance the quality of life of its over 12 lakh residents. Incidentally this region is also a prime target for terrorist/criminal activities that can inflict damage to life and property of the residents. The government of Maharashtra realised the imminent need to enhance the security of the region and was on the lookout for a comprehensive security management system that would improve the overall security cover and assist Navi Mumbai Police in managing law & order. The solution had to not only enable the civic authorities bring down the possibilities of a security breach but also ensure better safety across the city through 24x7 intelligent monitoring, quicker response time, faster access to evidence in case of a law violation.
Integration of the various stakeholders like the Navi Mumbai Police, NMMC (Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation), railways, shopping malls, multiplexes, theatres, schools, hotels, hospitals and other public places, corporate houses and citizens was extremely critical. This was important because each of these stakeholders had a different set of expectations and dependencies.
The implemented solution had to be scalable and easily integrate into existing security platforms in the city which the stakeholders were already familiar with. Speed of implementation was also critical to help reduce operational costs and risk and mange post implementation issues, if any.
With a vision to implement a holistic and integrated surveillance system in Navi Mumbai, the government of Maharashtra decided to align with Cisco for a connected physical security solution that would transform the way people, property and infrastructure in the city would be protected. A video surveillance system was implemented in order to enhance the overall safety and security of the city, address concerns pertaining to likely violation of law and order, traffic violations, turnaround time for crime resolution and act as an aid to investigation.
The solution included latest video surveillance and analytics technology which provides live camera updates and alerts and ensures that no security breaches are missed due to human error or oversight. Part of the solution are IP based outdoor security cameras located across the city which have the ability to monitor, detect, alert and record attacks, theft, vehicular movement, human movement, etc. The video surveillance data from various cameras deployed at strategic locations in the city are stored, monitored and analysed in a centralized control room. Intelligent reporting, Command and Control Engine & alert generation mechanisms enable faster and efficient decision making and help to put in place preventive security mechanisms as needed.
The entire solution runs on the network and the Cisco Unified Data Center architecture helps to integrate technology silos, reduce costs, and improve productivity. The ideal platform for delivering IT as a Service, Cisco Unified Data Center architecture unifies and dynamically optimises compute, storage, and network resources that can be securely and rapidly repurposed and managed on demand to meet the needs of different customers or applications.
Through its secure, scalable network fabric-IT organizations can deliver network infra¡structure or network services across all types of applications-from legacy applications to new visualized applications. Consequently, customers can deliver outstanding scalability, performance, high availability across all applications. The integrated architecture captures video data from all IP cameras. The data collected is aggregated for intelligent data processing for the creation of policy-based actionable information which is communicated to the relevant personnel for implementing on site.
