Hikvision’s hybrid solution secures Türk Telekom infrastructure
Hikvision’s hybrid solution secures Türk Telekom infrastructure

The solution includes Hikvision DS-9016HFI-S DVR, analogue and IP cameras and iVMS-4200 Client software Türk Telekom Group is Turkey's world-class, integrated telecommunication and technology services leader that offers its Turkish customers a complete range of fixed line, mobile, data, and internet services. Türk Telekom, as well, is Turkey's only integrated telecommunications service provider that owns the nation's conglomerate of leading regional communication and technology companies. However, impressive as this is, with Turkey's various topographical challenges, the issue of successfully overcoming equally impressive logistical hurdles was paramount. In this vein, Türk Telekom enlisted the services of security solution installer Kent Güvenlik Sistemleri A.S. to provide security for the 240 Türk Telekom rural wireless cellular sites throughout the country. Turkey's geographical challenges As earlier noted, these 240 sites were not solely located in metropolitan areas such as the nation's capital of Ankara or the commerce centre that is Istanbul. Instead, many of these locations were scattered within scarcely populated and difficult-to-reach spots (including, but limited to, high in the mountains). As many of these sites are unmanned, security for this infrastructure was a natural concern. These centres, called "rural control rooms" serve to connect the cities to the mountains and vice-versa through cellular means. Additionally, with Turkey's propensity for earthquakes, cellular communication has taken on a higher national priority. In fact, most communication from rural mountain areas to major metropolitan centres is now primarily achieved through cellular means. The Kent Güvenlik Sistemleri A.S. solution Since the dynamics of this project were based on cellular technology, "the decision was made to use a c for this particular large-scale project," noted Erdogan Tekin, Technical Manager at Kent Güvenlik Sistemleri A.S. After careful analysis of the specific demands this solution required, Mr. Tekin chose a combination of following Hikvision products. The first is DS-9016HFI-S Embedded Hybrid DVR. The reality that Türk Telekom is a very large, long-standing company denoted that there are both analogue and IP cameras in various capacities throughout Turkey. Güvenlik Sistemleri A.S. knew the DS-9016HFI-S worked exceedingly well with both types. The second Hikvision tool is the DS-2CC1182P-A 600 TVL Box camera. Mr. Tekin explained, "The DS-2CC1182P-A's durability was very, very important for this project. Due to the fact that many of these sites were in the mountains, this presented a dual problem. The first was the weather environment - it has massive shifts in extreme climate, including heat, wind, and bitter cold. The second was the inaccessibility of these sites. If a camera broke down, there really is not a realistic way to get a repair technician up there. Due to both concerns, the DS-2CC1182P-A's IP66 rating and Hikvision's reputation for quality and durability were extremely important." "The DS-2CC1182P-A's durability was very, very important for this project. Due to the fact that many of these sites were in the mountains, this presented a dual problem" The TV0309D-IR Lens was the third piece to this solution. Interestingly, before Kent Güvenlik Sistemleri A.S. chose this model, the company tested many other brands. After this testing, they found that no other brand offered the same high results: namely the night time LED performance was nowhere near as clear, and the TV0309D-IR resulted in much sharper IR images. Additionally, as with the DS-2CC1182P-A 600 TVL Box Camera, since both are located in rural mountain-top areas, the quality of these DVRs is vital to ensure that the necessary images are sent to security personnel in Ankara, and their Ankara-based PCs to monitor these stations. The same requirement holds true with DS-9016HFI-S's large 8 HDD memory. "In wintertime, it is virtually impossible to arrive at these sites, regardless of circumstance," added Mr. Tekin. The final piece of this solution puzzle is iVMS-4200 Client Software. This software allows the connection of all Hikvision hardware. In this Turkish case, all 240 sites - and their Hikvision hardware - are connected through managers' PCs. Mr Tekin elaborated, "Every major city in Turkey is using this client software. In this fashion, Ankara is connected to each of these cities and to each of these 240 rural sites through this convenient software program." Through this combination of Hikvision technology and versatility, even Turkey's formable mountains proved little match. And through this combination, the Türk Telekom Group's rural sites are secure.

Solution from Bosch Security protects the end of the line
Solution from Bosch Security protects the end of the line

Bosch products chosen for security at  London Southend Airport An entire portfolio of technologies from Bosch Security Systems - including the PLENA range of Public Address/Voice Alarm (PA/VA) technology - is being installed at the new Stobart Rail operated railway station at Stobart Group’s London Southend Airport to protect the safety and security of passengers and staff.   The station and airport, which was acquired by the famous transport and logistics group in 2008, features the Bosch range of Projection Speakers and Metal Cabinet Speakers to ensure effective communications with passengers, whose numbers are expected to rise to more than two million by 2020. The site is also benefitting from a surveillance system which includes the first installation of its new digital hybrid recorder (DHR).   Project Managers Birse Rail appointed DACS Rail as Electrical Engineers on the project who in turn appointed Max Electronic Systems to design and install a safety and security system that was fit for purpose today, but that could be relied upon to still be operating efficiently in the future. For that reason, Bill Anderson, Managing Director of MAX turned to Bosch: “When Stobart first purchased the site, it was obvious that security would be paramount,” he says. “This major new gateway for the South East now has a security and communications solution that is at the cutting edge and will be further upgraded as technology advances. “Bosch products are at the centre of everything we have done; the proven reliability and quality of its technology is exceptional,” he adds. The railway station has been expanded as a direct result of plans to upgrade London Southend to handle larger aircraft, and therefore more passengers, requiring the highest specification CCTV.   At the heart of the CCTV system are 20 Dinion XF Colour cameras, 15 Dinion 2xDay/Night cameras, three video interconnect portals and three LCD TFT monitors. It is also the first site in the UK to use the new DHR technology. In terms of delivering the messages and audio throughout the station, Bill opted for the flexible but entirely scalable Plena Controller which forms part of the PLENA communication family, including a remote control panel and zonal microphones.    The railway station is also covered by Bosch Speakers, with Projection speakers located upon the platforms and Cabinet speakers within the waiting areas. The Bosch 700 Series (formerly Divar XF) is a highly scalable system recorder for medium to large applications. It is a realtime 4-CIF embedded recorder, available in hybrid (analogue/IP) and IP-only versions and utilizes state-of-the-art H.264 compression to deliver bit rates that are up to 30% lower than conventional MPEG-4 based recorders.
