CNL Software will be demonstrating its IPSecurityCenter PSIM alongside Infinova at Secutech India 2016 in Mumbai CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, is pleased to announce it is partnering with Infinova on Safe Smart Cities programmes in India and will be demonstrating its award winning IPSecurityCenter™ PSIM technology alongside Infinova at Secutech India in Mumbai on April 21-23, 2016. The transformation of 100 cities into Smart Cities is planned across India; each city will be equipped with the infrastructure to offer pan-city elements including safety and security. Combining the latest PSIM and video surveillance technologies, CNL Software and Infinova offer an integrated situation management solution to enable Safe Smart Cities - maintaining the safety of citizens, the protection of critical infrastructure and the security of travel & transportation. Provide visual intelligence in real-time to right people “Safety and security are foundation stones for any smart city, as without them there will be no investment in the complex solutions needed to improve efficiency”, comments Milind Borkar, Vice President of Sales, at Infinova. “Given the safety and security challenges faced within key cities in India today, we see our video technology playing a critical role in providing the surveillance needed on the ground. Our partnership with CNL Software and integration with IPSecurityCenter PSIM ensures that the visual intelligence is provided in real-time to the right people; ensuring greater preparedness and faster response to potential threats.” “Statistics show that urban areas are expected to house 40% of India’s population and will contribute a staggering 75% of India’s GDP within the next 15 years. Protecting these vast cities is therefore mission critical for India’s long-term economic success. With one of the fastest growing economies in the world, India has embraced technology and continues to invest in improving the future for all of its citizens”, adds Keith Bloodworth, CEO, at CNL Software. “India’s latest Smart City programme is a great example of forward thinking, ensuring major cities are connected, intelligent and most of all secure. We are pleased to be partnered with Infinova to provide Safe Smart City programs in India.” Allows intelligent integration of wide range of security and homeland defence technologies IPSecurityCenter PSIM is deployed in some of the largest safe city security programmes today in global cities such as Washington DC, US, London, UK and Manchester, UK, supporting security and safety of citizens, visitors, commerce and infrastructure. IPSecurityCenter PSIM allows the intelligent integration of range of security and homeland defence technologies such as video surveillance and analytics, facial recognition, License Plate Recognition (LPR), crowd monitoring, gunshot detection, CBRNe, geospatial mapping and tracking. As a first step this partnership has enabled the integration of IPSecurityCenter PSIM with Infinova’s V2217 Video Management System, adding PSIM benefits to its rich VMS features. Infinova’s strengths within city surveillance have already been recognised in India, and has ensured a successful track record within safe city projects. This success can be attributed to its advanced video management capabilities, which ensures cities can maximise their investment in legacy analogue systems, and provides a migration path to IP System without the need for additional investments.
The growing international focus the Dubai Expo 2020 has brought to the Middle East will be highlighted at Intersec 2015 The upcoming Dubai Expo 2020 has sparked fresh impetus in the Gulf security market, as authorities look to secure critical infrastructure and protect the millions of expected visitors to the showpiece event. The Middle East region’s first ever Expo is expected to attract more than 25 million people from around the world, while a price tag of at least US$9 billion suggests the host Emirate is pulling out all the stops to create state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure. The immense security challenges that come with hosting such a major attraction means the Middle East is expected to be hotbed of innovation from international players in the safety and security market, with more than 1,300 getting ready to showcase their latest products and services at the 17th edition of Intersec in Dubai. Prominent companies exhibiting at the three-day event, which takes place from 18-20 January 2015 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, are targeting large-scale business growth and increased opportunities, as a result of the Expo 2020. “The Dubai Expo 2020 will create major global opportunities in the safety and security industry, and will encourage new ideas for innovation,” said Alessio Grotto, the President of Italian exhibitor Videotec, which is launching its latest range of video surveillance PTZ cameras at Intersec 2015. “Authorities will spend a huge amount on defence and security for supporting infrastructure, including airports, transportation, hotels and stadiums. New plans on how to secure sensitive areas, as well as to protect government officials and the influx of visitors will be drawn up and existing installations will have to be updated,” he added. Organised by Epoc Messe Frankfurt, Intersec is the world’s largest trade fair for security, safety and fire protection. Long-time exhibitor and global security solution provider G4S expects the regional security market to be worth US$ 7 billion in 2015, with a steady 10 per cent growth rate likely to continue at least up until 2017. Chris Fergus, Regional Managing Director, Middle East at G4S, said: “Hosting world renowned events such as the Dubai Expo 2020 will undoubtedly require world class security measures that need to be implemented prior to and alongside the event. “From risk mitigation plans to incorporating the latest electronic security to event security, the requirements are endless, not just at the event’s location, but nationwide. Event security is a key service line in G4S, as we have experience in securing the largest regional entertainment and sports events here in the UAE,” added Fergus. "The Dubai Expo 2020 will create major global opportunities in the safety and security industry, and will encourage new ideas for innovation" While many Intersec exhibitors anticipate an influx of new business opportunities, others say they are already feeling the impact of the Dubai Expo, including Axis Communications, one of the world’s top ten security companies. “Numerous projects from the public and private sectors are already taking place, most notably in transportation, hospitality, retail and critical infrastructure,” said Gilles Ortega, Regional Director of Axis Communications for the Middle East and Africa. “As a result, we expect the growth for network video surveillance in the GCC to grow by 25 per cent over the next five years.” Echoing the sentiment was Milind Borkar, Vice President of Sales at Infinova and March Networks for the Middle East & Africa and South Asia, who said: “Dubai Expo 2020 is setting the stage for many new developments and projects across the Middle East, thus increasing the security requirements in all these facilities. Infinova is looking at a broader picture and is observing a big boom across the entire security market.” The growing international focus that major events have brought to the Middle East will be highlighted at Intersec 2015, which is expected to grow by 15 per cent year-on-year, and will host 13 country pavilions from Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Taiwan, UK and the USA. Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Epoc Messe Frankfurt, said: “Large-scale international events coming up in the region not only create demand for stringent safety and security measures, but also drive fresh waves of innovation from the leading providers as they adapt their products to the ever-changing needs of today.” "As the largest international safety and security platform serving the wider region, Intersec provides international manufacturers and suppliers unmatched networking and business development opportunities" “As the largest international safety and security platform serving the wider region, Intersec provides international manufacturers and suppliers unmatched networking and business development opportunities.” As many as 300 exhibitors will be making their debuts at Intersec 2015, which features an enlarged conference line-up covering Fire Safety; Information Security; Commercial Security; Disaster Management; Occupational Safety and Safety Design in Buildings. Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Intersec is the largest and most international of Messe Frankfurt’s global network of security and safety exhibitions, which include: Secutech India, Secutech in Taiwan, Secutech Thailand, Intersec Buenos Aires, Secutech Vietnam and Seguriexpo Buenos Aires.
