Safe & Smart City Solutions
Increasing public safety and improving urban security
There is no place more complex and challenging to maintain safety and security than the urban environment. The risks are multi-pronged, with a list that runs long, and ranges from crime and terrorist threats to traffic management and natural disasters. Controlling and managing incidents in all of these areas is paramount to a smooth running city. That’s why cities have massive infrastructures that include many agencies, and even more systems and sensors.
Integration is key
The Qognify safe/smart city solution creates a single, unified networked platform giving everyone – Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), first responders, Departments of Transportation, and other government agencies, as well as different city departments – full visibility for faster resolution of all types of incidents. Moreover, it provides automated and escalating pre-defined guidance, so that the best course of action is consistently taken no matter who is in the control center.
- Common operating picture (COP) – everyone is working with the same complete information for more effective interagency collaboration, response and resolution
- Complete situational awareness – by integrating and correlating systems and sensors, you’ll know how to respond effectively and with efficient resource utilization
- Consistent, effective response – using automated tools and pre-defined guidance that evolves with the incident, greatly improving and accelerating resolution
Leading public safety expert
There is no substitute for real experience and a proven track record. Our expertise is unmatched in the public safety arena. Qognify Safe/Smart City solutions have been selected by Sochi, Russia, during the Winter Olympics 2014 and by East Rutherford, New Jersey, for a major sporting event in 2014. Many of the world’s most security-conscious locations and organizations use Qognify technology and expertise to improve their safety and security operations.
Better resource utilization
In an emergency situation, it is common for many agencies to turn up, eager to support. But the ensuing confusion can have the reverse effect. In such a situation, a strong command and control structure, with effective communication, is vital. And that is exactly what Qognify provides. With the COP and complete situational awareness of our Safe City solution, agencies work better and more effectively together, ensuring public safety.
The Qognify safe/ smart city solution helps you accelerate response time and resolution effectiveness. Based on the world’s leading PSIM solution, Situator integrates all existing and new technologies to create a unified security platform. This includes: VisionHub, for intelligent IP video surveillance, to verify incidents as they occur; our advanced video analytics applications such as Suspect Search; and our debriefing tools, which manage and maximize all incident information during and after a security incident. And that’s just the beginning.
“Sochi’s Safe City project is a significant implementation of an emergency control center and video surveillance platform. It will provide additional advantages to the police force, law enforcement authorities, and emergency and city operation services to help them reduce the number of offences and ensure public safety.”
