NICE Systems' NiceVision solution to protect China's Tianjin Metro

Solution's real-time analytics to reduce safety risks and operational bottle-necks


Ra’anana, Israel, May 18, 2011 - NICE Systems, today announced that China’s Tianjin Metro will be implementing NiceVision’s IP video security solution with video analytics to enhance the safety and security of 23 stations along its Line 2 route. This implementation will constitute the ninth deployment of NICE security solutions across different lines and cities in China’s mass transit system, once again further expanding the company’s footprint in the country beyond Beijing.

Line 2 of the Tianjin Metro is a mostly underground rapid transit line, running from 23.5 km from west to east of the city. The NiceVision IP video security solution will provide seamless surveillance of the railway, its tracks, stations and passengers. The solution will deliver real-time alerts directly to the metro’s security personnel on incidents such as unauthorized entry. This will enable them to detect and verify incidents early. This resulting increase in situational awareness will help to mitigate risks, enhance passenger safety and better protect metro assets. The NICE solution will also enable the metro’s security personnel to keep track of the number of people at multiple entries and exits. This trend analysis capability provides business insight that can be utilized to enhance commuter service levels.

Raghav Sahgal, President, Asia Pacific, said,"This is another project which shows the positive momentum our security solutions for mass transit are enjoying in the Chinese market. Nearly two dozen major cities have received approval from the Minister of Railways in China in late 2009, to build 89 metro lines by 2016. Tianjin is among these cities. Accordingly, we are seeing a rise in demand in China for advanced video surveillance that can effectively protect passengers. Our non-intrusive IP-based video surveillance address these needs, enabling comprehensive coverage without disturbing operational integrity — a key consideration for transit environments. We are happy to have been chosen for this project and to be taking a leading role in the country’s expansive mass transit system."
