    NGT’s integrated solution incorporates network and hosting infrastructure which is designed to securely consolidate disparate CCTV intelligence feeds into a central monitoring platform.

    The new solution enables access to over 10 remote CCTV sites (all using different systems) and more than 2,000 cameras.

    Partnering for Success
    With the critical need to deliver sophisticated infrastructure security, NGT partnered with Cisco to integrate the latest technologies including Cisco’s new Firepower product. Ensuring visibility into network devices, applications, users, operating system and files moving across the network, Firepower is a key component of the security infrastructure.

    The solution was delivered as the first joint project under the Downer and Cisco Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on the internet of things (IoT) and smart cities projects. The partnership will continue as NGT assists the Western Australian Government to connect additional remote sites to the central monitoring platform.

    Cisco has produced a short video and case study which you can view here.

    The new system also utilises Nanodems physical security information management (PSIM) software.

        [title] => Mobile CCTV – Introducing the new anywhere, anytime MU Series
        [permalink] => mobile-cctv-introducing-the-new-anywhere-anytime-mu-series
        [content] => 
    

    Fully equipped with wireless communications, the MU Series can be deployed for community events such as the Australia Day Skyworks or on remote mining sites.

    A key feature of the MU Series is the self-sufficient solar panels that ensure clean, energy efficient operation. Recognised for its energy efficiency, the MU Series was awarded a Certificate of Commendation at the NECA Excellence Awards in 2016.

    With innovation and safety at its core, the new MU Series can be operated remotely and monitored 24-hours. It also features wireless repeaters and access points that enable the tracking of assets and provides free Wi-Fi, making it ideal for community events. Simplifying installation and ongoing management, the MU Series can be operated as standalone units or integrated into existing CCTV systems.

    Designed and manufactured at Downer’s facility in Western Australia, the MU Series ensures quality and reliability to customers across Australia. To learn more about the MU Series click here to watch a short video.

    Recent installations of the new MU Series include locations across Perth’s CBD where the units have been used to monitor community safety for the City of Perth.

    “The MU Series is specifically designed to address the ELV (extra low voltage) needs of short-term, mobile and remote sites. There are countless CCTV solutions on the market but the feedback we’ve received from customers is that the MU Series is the only solution that meets the mandatory requirements of safety and standalone operation.”

        [content] => 
    

    Downer was awarded the contract in 2015 to design, build and install two new high-tech systems that provide the technology infrastructure to support the new Perth Busport.

    The two new systems are the Real-Time Tracking System (RTTS) and Dynamic Stand Management System (DSMS). These provide a range of services including:

    • Managing the flow of buses;
    • Directing bus drivers on their journey;

    •  

      Managing traffic priority at major intersections; and
    • Enabling passengers to track the real-time movements of their bus via mobile Apps.

    The DSMS system is one of the first systems of its kind worldwide and the new Perth Busport is a first for Australia. Each bus is allocated to one of sixteen stands on arrival and the information is communicated to passengers via large electronic screens in the air-conditioned passenger lounge.

    “This project awarded to Downer by the WA PTA follows a long-standing relationship on delivering technical solutions to our valued customers. Similar high-tech services include the successful roll-out of Transperth’s SmartRider ticketing system in 2007 and the Integrated Ticket Vending Machines deployed in 2008, as well as ongoing management and maintenance of these.
