Due to their size, location throughout the country and changing nature of the locations, railway networks pose numerous problems that require a security solution that can prevent and protect core business activities, capital assets and provide the resilience required to maintain the business continuity of the railway transport infrastructure.
DABsi’s model for railway transport security combines video surveillance, video analysis, access control, intrusion detection systems and SOS alarm columns to monitor and protect stations and adjacent areas, as well as tunnels, cabins, technical infrastructures, railway depots and level crossings and places that are potentially exposed to attacks and threats.
The model is based on a scalable, open and technological platform, which allows the data collected by the implemented systems to be cross-linked with information from external processes, increasing the overall effectiveness of the technology installed.
These systems, which are connected to the operations centre, allow requests for help to be relayed and targeted interventions by law enforcement to be managed more effectively.
The monitoring and control processes of the operations centre can also be streamlined and automated, thus reducing the cost of manned guards patrolling the infrastructures.
The ability to integrate information from inside and outside the process produces an Advanced Integrated Security logic.
The main benefits of the solution are the ability to control widespread petty crime, support investigations by the competent authorities, prevent threats from natural events and increase the perception of safety among rail transport users.
