Solution features an advanced situation management platform and video management solution
Big data security firm Qognify has implemented its Safe City solution in Navi Mumbai, India, to help Navi police maintain law, order and safety.
Navi Mumbai was established to handle the population overflow from the ever-growing city of Mumbai, and as a planned new city, Qognify has been able to maximise the design and deployment of its “integrated and holistic” solution there.
The roll-out was achieved in partnership with City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO), (the agency established for managing the new city) and system integrator Wipro.
At the core of the solution are Qognify Situator, an advanced situation management platform, and its video management solution which controls hundreds of surveillance cameras throughout the city.
With the solution’s implementation, the city has gained the ability to improve traffic management, deter criminal activity, effectively manage response to events, and resolve investigations efficiently, the company said.
“The Navi Mumbai security programme goes far beyond a CCTV system,” said Soma Vijayakumar at CIDCO. “It is a smart solution that integrates video, emergency response, traffic control, license plate identification and more. Qognify is the core important element of this platform, providing a solution which is among the most modern and advanced available anywhere.”
Some of the key features of the new solution include:
A central command centre is using the platform to monitor entry and exit points of the city, toll points, traffic junctions, accident prone road sections, subway and railway stations, schools, key residential areas, open markets, and key utility infrastructure areas such as electrical substations and the main water supply lines;
Special emergency communication boxes to act as panic buttons and allow people to generate alerts and communicate directly to the control room in case of emergency;
Qognify’s video management solution provides high quality video feeds. Smart integration with Agent Vi’s video analytics solutions enables immediate detection and extraction of security and safety incidents from surveillance cameras throughout the city. This integration enables the triggering of real-time, automatic alerts of incidents in Qognify Situator that in turn, generates the appropriate operating procedure and response plan for the operators to act upon;
Situator provides a unified, operational view of the city by integrating all the components of the solution, while providing advanced collaboration.
“Navi Mumbai has embarked on a remarkable programme which will enhance the safety and security of its citizen, visitors and assets,” said Moti Shabtai, president, Qognify. “We’re proud to be a part of this multi-solution, multi-agency project that fulfils the vision of the city authorities to provide a security and safety to its constituents.
