Boston Networks to deliver turnkey Public Space CCTV Surveillance system and fully integrated, control room for Renfrewshire Council and its Community Safety partners.

The purpose built and fully integrated control room will encompass the latest IP technologies including leading edge Video Management Software (VMS) and a Physical Security Information Management system (PSIM) to provide 24/7 surveillance and monitoring throughout Renfrewshire.

Boston Networks will begin the project by performing rigorous site surveys then upgrading and adding to the existing Public Space CCTV cameras across the Renfrewshire region. In addition, a new communications network will be designed for the dedicated transmission of high capacity data to integrate securely with the new control room, all of which applying truly state of the art technologies.

The second phase of the project will see Boston work with Renfrewshire to deliver an entirely cohesive security solution and 24/7 centralised monitoring facility. Boston Networks will define the migration and convergence of a number of other security and safety systems to be monitored within the new integrated control room facility.

Renfrewshire Council and its Community Safety partners will have the capacity to fully integrate a myriad of, currently proprietary, critical security systems including:

· Intruder Alarm & Detection

· Fire Alarm & Detection

· Electronic Access Control

· Intercom Door Release

· Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)

· Building Management Systems (BMS)

· Lone Working Systems

To ensure the highest levels of security and service availability, Boston Networks will also provide a bespoke Maintenance and Support service, from its dedicated Network Operations Centre, based in Glasgow. The services will encompass defined service level agreements as well as continuous health checks, usage statistics and risk analysis.

Scott McEwan, CEO Boston Networks states: "Boston Networks has designed a solution to deliver the highest level of integration capabilities including world leading surveillance software and high definition CCTV technology. Our system consolidates a wide range of security products into one simple operator interface offering exceptional situational awareness to protect the public space, public buildings and critical assets. With our unrivalled expertise in both networking and IP security technologies, we (Boston Networks) will undertake all of the planning, design, delivery and support of this solution with our in-house team to streamline the cost of monitoring multiple systems across multiple locations without compromising on technological benefits.

Paul Goodbrand, Director of Intelligent Buildings Boston Networks added: "By utilising ‘best of breed’ technologies, the highly scalable Public Space Surveillance solution has the capability to continuously evolve, in-line with the council’s strategy on Public Safety. Working in close partnership with the Council and its Community Safety partners throughout this project and its Maintenance period, Boston Networks is wholly committed to delivering an Intelligent and fit for purpose solution."
