UTStarcom (UTSI) says its IP video surveillance solution based upon the company's RollingStream IPTV technology has been selected by China Netcom to serve as the primary design and deployment platform for the Safe-City project in Benxi, Liaoning Province.
"Together with UTStarcom, we are pioneering a new security infrastructure that will establish the standard for safe city designation in the region, and more importantly, deliver lasting benefits to our urban society," said Guangyu Zhang, manager, marketing department, China Netcom's Benxi Branch. "UTStarcom's IPVS technology provides us with a very interactive, manageable, and re-programmable video surveillance tool in Benxi that has proven flexible in supporting our multiple network structure without sacrificing performance stability or the high performance and price ratio that we would expect."
The Safe-City video surveillance project in Benxi, which is also the first large-scale application of UTStarcom's RollingStream IP video surveillance solution, will reportedly be one of the most advanced systems in the Liaoning Province in terms of technology and function. It will allow the Benxi Public Security Bureau to more scientifically plan the deployment of police through dynamic arrangement, comprehensive control, and precise strike capabilities and enable a more effective maintenance of the order and stability of the city.
UTStarcom will establish 700 surveillance points — or cameras — throughout Benxi in the first phase of the project and all security surveillance facilities in the urban district of Benxi will adopt the advanced, IP-based surveillance system for monitoring and safety deployment purposes.
