SMART CITIES FROM CISCO

DQ Channels - - Cover Story -

Gu­jarat In­ter­na­tional Fi­nance Tec-City (GIFT): Us­ing a ro­bust net­work in­fra­struc­ture, Cisco helped GIFT-City in­te­grate its ap­pli­ca­tion plat­form with Cisco® net­work equip­ment as well as se­cu­rity and sur­veil­lance. A unique fea­ture of this in­te­gra­tion is its cen­tral­ized city com­mand and con­trol cen­ter. It in­tel­li­gently con­nects, mon­i­tors, and man­ages the use of pre­cious re­sources such as wa­ter and power, and cit­i­zen ser­vices such as se­cu­rity and sur­veil­lance, through one tech­nol­ogy plat­form. By com­bin­ing the in­tel­li­gent build­ing man­age­ment sys­tem with the in­fra­struc­ture man­age­ment sys­tem, this cen­ter can en­sure users get the best ser­vices in util­i­ties and sim­pli­fies the oper­a­tions for city man­agers. And as GIFT-City strives to be In­dia’s first fi­nan­cial hub, the con­trol cen­ter also helps en­sure it stays con­nected at all times. With the highly se­cure and re­silient IT in­fra­struc­ture built for IoE, GIFT-City is slated to be­come a site for holis­tic eco­nomic growth and a haven for global fi­nan­cial cor­po­ra­tions.

Luc­know: With a vi­sion to im­ple­ment a holis­tic and in­te­grated sur­veil­lance sys­tem in Luc­know, the Gov­ern­ment of UP aligned with Cisco for a con­nected phys­i­cal se­cu­rity so­lu­tion that trans­formed the way peo­ple, property and in­fra­struc­ture in the city would be pro­tected. A video sur­veil­lance sys­tem was im­ple­mented in or­der to en­hance the over­all safety and se­cu­rity of city, ad­dress con­cerns per­tain­ing to likely vi­o­la­tion of law and or­der, traf­fic vi­o­la­tions, turn­around time for crime res­o­lu­tion and act as an aid to in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Cisco’s in­te­grated ar­chi­tec­ture cap­tures video data from all IP cam­eras for in­tel­li­gent data pro­cess­ing to cre­ate pol­icy-based ac­tion­able in­for­ma­tion which can be com­mu­ni­cated to the rel­e­vant per­son­nel for im­ple­ment­ing on site. The so­lu­tion in­cluded lat­est video sur­veil­lance and an­a­lyt­ics tech­nol­ogy to pro­vide live cam­era up­dates and alerts and en­sures that no se­cu­rity breaches are missed due to hu­man er­ror or over­sight. Part of the so­lu­tion are IP based out­door se­cu­rity cam­eras lo­cated across the city which have the abil­ity to mon­i­tor, de­tect, alert and record at­tacks, theft, ve­hic­u­lar move­ment, hu­man move­ment, etc. The video sur­veil­lance data from var­i­ous cam­eras de­ployed at strate­gic lo­ca­tions in the city was stored, mon­i­tored and an­a­lyzed in a cen­tral­ized con­trol room. This in turn has had a direct im­pact on cit­i­zens and has trans­formed their lives. Luc­know De­ploy­ment:

1. 280 IP CCTVs cam­eras across city. Th­ese in­clude 70 pan-tilt-zoom, 170 fixed and 40 ANPR cam­eras. 2. Video an­a­lyt­ics soft­ware for ef­fec­tive de­tec­tion and alerts 3. Mo­bile sur­veil­lance van equipped with night vi­sion cam­eras; the cam­eras can ex­tend up to 3 me­tre over the ve­hi­cle to cap­ture mem­bers of a vi­o­lent mob 4. In­te­gra­tion with about 300 cam­eras in­stalled by busi­ness­men and traders across im­por­tant cross­ing

Cisco prod­ucts used in Luc­know PSS

Net­work: Cisco In­dus­trial grade Net­work Switches at Junc­tions Data Cen­ter: Cisco Nexus plat­form Cisco ASR & ISR router Cisco Uni­fied Com­put­ing Sys­tem Cisco ASA fire­wall IP Sur­veil­lance: Cisco HD cam­eras as Fixed and PTZ cam­eras Cisco Video Man­age­ment soft­ware

Navi Mum­bai: Us­ing a Cisco® IP-based city sur­veil­lance sys­tem and an­a­lyt­ics, Navi Mum­bai can now record footage at var­i­ous points in the city and an­a­lyze it in­stantly. Run­ning on a Cisco net­work, this so­lu­tion pro­vides live cam­era up­dates and alerts so that se­cu­rity breaches are not missed due to hu­man er­ror or over­sight. By in­te­grat­ing the CCTV com­mand cen­ter with the lo­cal po­lice con­trol room, lo­cal au­thor­i­ties can use the recorded footage to help pre­vent ac­ci­dents. Of­fi­cials can also more ef­fec­tively man­age traf­fic and in­ves­ti­gate crim­i­nal in­ci­dents. With its new in­fra­struc­ture, Navi Mum­bai is a more con­nected city, us­ing dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy to in­crease pub­lic safety.

Jaipur: Jaipur, one of In­dia’s most pop­u­lar global travel des­ti­na­tions, will now em­brace the ben­e­fits of con­nec­tiv­ity and digi­ti­sa­tion to trans­form it­self into a Smart+Con­nected™ city. The Jaipur De­vel­op­ment Author­ity (JDA) has cho­sen to de­velop smart city in­fras­truc­tures that will im­prove the ef­fi­ciency and qual­ity of ser­vices re­ceived by its 3.5 mil­lion res­i­dents and over 40 mil­lion tourists who visit the city ev­ery year.With this launch, Jaipur be­comes one of the first state cap­i­tals in In­dia to show­case a com­pre­hen­sive roadmap to be­come a world­class smart city. JDA will set up the dig­i­tal in­fra­struc­ture to of­fer cit­i­zens ameni­ties in­clud­ing con­nected trans­port, in­ter­ac­tive kiosks, wire­less broad­band, safety and se­cu­rity ser­vices, traf­fic man­age­ment and en­vi­ron­men­tal up­dates. The or­gan­i­sa­tion will in­stall an ur­ban plat­form of sen­sors which al­lows for the shar­ing of in­for­ma­tion, giv­ing added value to cit­i­zens. JDA will also setup a Com­mand and Con­trol Cen­tre as well as a Re­sponse Con­trol Room to man­age the city with greater ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tive­ness. The Dig­i­tal In­dia pro­gram of the gov­ern­ment is fo­cused on the dig­i­tal em­pow­er­ment of cit­i­zens, where in­fra­struc­ture will be of­fered as a util­ity to ev­ery cit­i­zen, gov­er­nance and ser­vices would be on de­mand, and cit­i­zens would be dig­i­tally em­pow­ered.
