NICE Systems, a global provider of advanced solutions that enable organizations to extract insight from interactions to drive performance, announced that it has been selected by Xian Metro to provide NICE's IP video security solution to enhance safety and security at its 21 stations for Xian City's first metro line, planned to be in operation by the end of 2010.
Xian Metro selected NICE for its proven track record in securing transportation networks in China and for its ability to meet all of their requirements. All 21 metro stations of Xian Metro Line 2 will be connected to the security system, consisting of 700 channels, and will be monitored from the station monitoring room, giving security personnel the power to identify risk, make optimal decisions, and take action that improves security.
NICE's real-time distributed digital video solution will be deployed to help protect the metro line and stations against crime and potential terror threats. By providing real-time alerts to security personnel, the result will be enhanced passenger safety and better asset protection.
"We are glad to be selected by Xian Metro and support them in their efforts to increase the safety and security of the City's first metro line," said Doron Ben-Sira , President of APAC, Nice Systems. "Building on past successful implementations of NICE's digital video security solutions in China for Beijing Metro, the Ministry of Rail, and Shanghai Pudong Airport, this project demonstrates NICE's expanding role in providing advanced solutions to enhance the security of China's transportation networks."
