Video monitoring

INDISPENSABLE ELEMENT OF SURVEILLANCE AND SECURITY

 

Sprint S.A. signed a contract for the construction of a monitoring infrastructure that covered several hundred hectares of land belonging to the NCBJ, including a separate area where a working nuclear reactor is located.


SCOPE OF WORK

The plan was to design and build electrical and logical network infrastructure to be used by the monitoring system. Another task was to design a system along the fence securing the NCBJ site, with a length of about 5 km.

139 cameras have been installed on the existing lighting lanterns. These include IP cameras, with PoE function, outdoor, with fixed focal length lenses.

Along the fence, fiber optic structured cabling was built, as well as electrical cabling supplying power to external logic cabinets.

In addition, the cameras installed on the premises of the National Center for Nuclear Research are the rotating thermal IP cameras on poles with outriggers, which allow to monitor the area in almost complete darkness.

The monitoring staff can observe the area along the entire fence of NCBJ. The system has been programmed in such a way that during the night hours, in case of an intruder violation of the monitored area, the security service receives an alarm with the image from a specific camera and the possibility of replaying the recorded video from the DVR.

Benefits

The monitoring staff can observe the area along the whole fence of NCBJ.
