Clustered RAID storage and enterprise CMS protect capital of Mongolia

City surveillance plays an important role in crime prevention and criminal prosecution. For a mission-critical project like this, it calls for not only high performance and reliable solutions, but the capability to handle the harsh outdoor environment and large data storage for 24/7 non-stop recording for 90 days. “With Surveon's end to end solutions, from 3 megapixel IP66 cameras, hardware RAID NVR, clustered storage, to enterprise VMS, we are now better equipped to monitor the entire district and protect the community against illegal activities, ” said the Sukhbaatar district police officer.

Customer
The Sukhbaatar District is situated in the capital Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia. With 18 sub-districts and a population of more than 112,000, this area is the center of the city with major government buildings, embassies, banks, and universities. “With all the residents and visitors, this district needed an advanced and professional video surveillance system to provide additional support for the police force,” the officer pointed out.

Challenges
Located in the coldest national capital in the world, the Sukhbaatar District features brief, warm summers and long, bitterly cold and dry winters, with extreme temperatures ranging from −49 °C (−56 °F) to 38.6 °C (101.5 °F) in the year. The harsh weather conditions challenge outdoor cameras to function properly and record clear images day and night.
With all the political and financial activities taking place in the large territory, the police department required a surveillance system that would allow them to remotely monitor the entire area and quickly respond to events in different sections of the district. An advanced TV-matrix wall functionality to see everything around this neighborhood at a glance was the key demand in the implementation. And a reliable storage system that supports 24/7 continuous megapixel recording for 90 days is necessary in city surveillance projects. The Sukhbaatar police department wanted to install enterprise-grade data storage to ensure long data retention period with no video loss.

3 Megapixel 30 FPS HDR Outdoor Cameras for Extreme Weathers
Surveon CAM3471 provides 2048 x 1536 resolution at 30fps, true HDR (high dynamic range), IP66-rated weatherproof housing, and wide temperature to combat the harsh conditions. Installed atop streetlight poles, Surveon CAM3471 cameras enable police to monitor the downtown areas, tourist destinations, main roads, busy intersections, and the city's most violent neighborhoods. With the smart image optimizers, Surveon cameras can analyze lighting changes and automatically adjust the image functions to ensure clarity can be obtained under different lightings. The Smart Auto HDR can be automatically activated or deactivated according to the lighting, refraining images from being too bright or too dark. The Smart Shutter can capture precise images of fast-moving objects by adjusting the shutter speed automatically to avoid captured images going blurry or dragging.
In addition, the Smart Auto Exposure automatically adjusts the exposure based on a targeted area to bring out the proper exposure for the overall image, and the Smart Auto Focus allows users to apply auto focus on a targeted area, showing the clear image of the region that really matters. Surveon cameras also offer ROI (Region of Interest). Users can create up to eight independent regions, each with different video quality and frame rate, saving up to 30% of the network bandwidth.

Enterprise Video Solutions for Centralized Management
For a mission-critical project, an enterprise-grade video management solution is the ultimate choice. Surveon's intuitive VMS provides enterprise-level features such as real-time analytics, live view, instant playback, multiple clients, video bookmarking, remote monitoring, and centralized domain management. The software also adopts PIP, fisheye, back-forward, and frame by frame in live view and playback modes, offering partners the powerful yet easy to use solutions for professional surveillance.
Based on the client-server architecture, the Surveon Control Center (SCC) works on a simple yet compelling platform. With a single login from any PC/client at any remote location to the SCC central domain server, the SCC can take controls of monitoring, playback, configurations, and log management of all connected appliances, including cameras, NVRs, monitors, and I/O devices to ease the complications of configuration and maintenance.
The SCC supports the advanced TV-matrix wall that allows the police to know what is happening in the district in a glimpse inside the control room. In addition, the central alarm monitors not only events but overall hardware and software system status from one single platform to control operations, ease maintenance, and shorten response time.
Premium-Level Storage for Data Recording Supporting up to 64 channels of Full HD video recording, the Surveon NVR2100 with subsystem storage was chosen to provide large capacities up to 448 TB for longer video retention periods, overall system stability and zero video loss.
The EonStor RAID storage is an advanced data storage system designed for server, PC and NVR. The controller-based system with a dedicated “RAID controller” provides the highest performance and reliability with all data protected and backed up. Surveon's NVR2100 also comes with the SANwatch storage monitoring suite which helps the police easily manage and monitor the status of the storage, ensuring the high availability of recorded video.
