Between 2010 and 2014, Tein Technology – in partnership with Cegelec Infra Technics – installed the entire surveillance network of the Brussels North police department, comprised of Schaerbeek, Evere and Saint-Joost-ten-Node. With over 130 cameras and tailored management software, this complex project involved two different types of technology: a fiber optic network, and wireless connectivity.
A new Tein Technology project
The police force recently put out a new call for tenders, which was once again won by Tein Technology. With new technological requirements and the need to work closer with other entities in and around the capital, the video management software was ready for an upgrade.
In the coming months, Tein Technology – in partnership with Cegelec Infra Technics that will carry out all infrastructure work – will install the new management software for the surveillance systems, add another 20 cameras across 13 locations, and connect the in-building cameras to the same management platform. This will ensure that all police cameras, both indoors and outdoors, can be monitored and controlled through a single platform. Tein Technology will provide the necessary training for the department’s employees.
New software, better performance
The new software platform will make it easier for the Brussels North police department to exchange video content with other public entities, such as government agencies, public transport security bodies and other police departments. This technical upgrade will further enhance the performance of the video surveillance network.
Over the next five years, Tein Technology will also ensure the maintenance of the entire video management network, including approximately 150 outdoor cameras and 150 indoor cameras.
