NICE’s situation management solution along with its IP-video surveillance solution which includes video analytics will enable rail link operator to secure travelers on three rail lines
Ra’anana, Israel, May 12, 2011 - NICE Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: NICE), the worldwide leader of intent-based solutions that extract insight to impact business performance, reduce financial risk and ensure safety and security, today announced that AeroExpress, a provider of rail transportation services between Moscow’s rail terminals and its three airports, will implement NICE Situator to improve overall security operations. AeroExpress will also be implementing NiceVision Net, NICE’s enterprise-class, open-platform IP-based video surveillance solution along with video analytics capabilities for automatic intrusion detection. The NICE solutions will enable AeroExpress to effectively manage security situations and respond quickly to events as they occur.
AeroExpress will implement NICE to help its security teams pre-plan, coordinate and manage response to emergency situations in real-time, as well as effectively manage routine security operations. NICE will enable AeroExpress to integrate and correlate data feeds from many different security sensors that enter the control room. In doing so the NICE solution will provide the foundation upon which security teams can “connect the dots”, achieving holistic situational awareness as regards the incident’s location and details, the gravity of the situation and the resources available to respond and manage it, thereby facilitating a collaborative and timely response.
Aleksey Krivoruchko, Chief Executive Officer of AeroExpress, said, “We picked NICE for its comprehensive capabilities in providing unified security operations management, as well as for proven experience in protecting some of the world’s main transportation systems. We are looking forward to benefitting from NICE Situator’s capabilities for allowing specific tasks to be automated and processes to be enforced. This way we can be sure that the right action is taken at the right time, giving our security personnel the power and scope to focus on making decisions and judgments, leveraging their skills and expertise.”
NICE Situator will be implemented along with NiceVision Net IP video surveillance solutions and will be integrated with a number of third party systems, including access control, a fire alarm panel, a GPS train tracking system, mobile DVR, and a video wall. AeroExpress will also implement NICE’s video analytics capabilities for intrusion detection to enable perimeter control for sensitive or restricted areas such as permit parking and limited-access buildings. This will enable automatic detection, tracking and alerting of possibility of intruders.
Shlomi Cohen, President of NICE EMEA said, “We are very happy to be providing our advanced solutions to the AeroExpress rail system, our first mass transit customer in Russia. With security threats to transportation systems on the rise worldwide, the need for improving security operations is high on the agenda these days. To mitigate security breaches across a rail network, operators need to have collaborative response capabilities among multiple stakeholders, and continual investment is being made in solutions that enable greater vigilance and a more proactive security operation. The NICE security portfolio is unique in providing a comprehensive and unified solution to address these critical needs. We are also happy to be expanding our presence in the important EMEA market with this project.”
