Networked Surveillance Systems watch Railway performance and passenger safety

SHARE

To enable faster resolution of technical faults in the rail system and to respond to increased mandates for physical security under the Homeland Security Act of US, TriMet is installing 24×7 CTTV cameras at geographic points along its rail system. TriMet currently has stand-alone surveillance cameras, but has plans to implement networked digital surveillance cameras in railway passenger cars, buses and boarding stations. The cameras will stream the live video onto TriMet’s wide-area-network, where both agency and local law enforcement personnel can see and react quickly to threats or emergencies. The availability and performance of the streaming video will be monitored and protected by the nGenius solution, to provide early warning of any performance issues occurring on the network.
