Video surveillance



In 2008, in the course of tender proceedings, Gdynia City Hall selected Sprint as the contractor for extension of video surveillance system. The existing system, consisting of 17 installed cameras, was to be modernized and extended by 100 cameras and a new viewing center located in the City Crisis Management Center in Gdynia. In addition, the project included construction of a server room with the necessary equipment for image transmission and archiving, modernization of the local monitoring center, construction of the necessary optical fiber and radio communication system.
The current stage of development of the monitoring system was commissioned in August 2010. 


The latest technical solutions in telecommunications and IT were used to implement the investment. An advanced broadband radio transmission system has been built to transmit images from cameras. The system operates in licensed frequency bands under the supervision of the Office of Electronic Communications. Thanks to this solution, it is resistant to possible interference from other broadcasters.
Currently, the video surveillance system in Gdynia consists of over 100 modern, high-speed, color cameras, which are used to supervise the safety of city residents.
The choice of number and location of LMDS base stations was dictated by the optimization of radio signal coverage of the area, where the camera points were installed. Configuration of particular base stations includes the required capacity of sectors, their range and mutual interaction. 

System architecture and its redundancy allow for further development of the monitoring system.
