Indian cities use video to help improve traffic flow, safety

DVTel’s iSOC solution manages cameras at 40 key traffic locations


Ridgefield Park, NJ, April 22, 2010 -- DVTel, Inc., multiple award-winning market leader in the development and delivery of intelligent security solutions over IP networks, today announced that the DVTel intelligent Security Operations Center (iSOC) has been deployed in four Indian cities—New Delhi, Dehradun, Kashipur, and Rudrapur. Optimum Tech Solutions Pvt Ltd. served as the security integrator of record for the projects in Dehradun, Kashipur and Rudrapur and has been instrumental in growing the project in these cities.

The DVTel iSOC manages a mix of IP fixed and PTZ cameras monitoring upwards of 40 locations total in the four cities. In each city, video is monitored by police to improve travel flow and enhance safety, but also to monitor traffic movement around the cities in order to respond quickly to terrorist or related threats. The Delhi project is managed by New Delhi city police, while the other three locations’ City Surveillance Programs fall under the Uttrakhand State Traffic Police. The DVTel system is highly effective, particularly during festivals, when the entire city takes to the roads in celebration, and for when VIPs are on the move in any of the cities.

The Delhi installation is the older of the four projects and the other three cities owe their inspiration for their projects from city officials visiting Delhi to observe that surveillance program in action. Video surveillance in India is experiencing strong growth, due mainly to perceptions of heightened terrorism threats. The DVTel iSOC was deployed for all four locations based on the recommendations of the trusted integrator partners as well as the demonstrated iSOC system performance first in Delhi and then in Dehradun, the capital city of Uttrakhand state.

"This is a great partnership with Optimum Tech Solutions," commented Inderjit Sehrawat, DVTel Indian Country Manager. "Together, we’ve built on the success of one project on to the next and now we are installed in several major cities in India. Our success to date and the performance of the DVTel iSOC is motivating increased interest by Indian government officials, and we are currently in discussions for other, potentially larger, projects."
