1500 Infinova cameras watch over Istanbul Metro

Expanding its presence in transportation sector, Infinova CCTV solutions have been deployed at the Istanbul Metro and currently cover about 18 metro stations. About 1500 Megapixel IP cameras were deployed along with the existing installation of 720 IP and analog cameras.  The cameras can be monitored locally from each metro station as well as centrally from 3 control rooms. The system is smartly designed to provide fully flexible failover management for all cameras. The system has been implemented by USKOM, Infinova’s certified Integrator in Turkey.

Infinova was able to propose a much simplified network design as their Video Management Software V2217 supports using 3 different sub-networks (input sub-network, output sub-network and storage sub-network). Infinova V2217 VMS’s fully distributed architecture was useful in installing servers independent of each other and still providing access to all servers from required client computers. Infinova V2217 VMS is designed to clearly separate out administration features and operation features. With 20 servers and 40+ clients, this design was very useful in streamlining the access permissions and ensuring highest security.
