After NICE Systems, a provider of advanced solutions for companies to capture, storage, retrieval and analysis of customer interactions for contact centers and enterprises, was selected by Beijing Metro in China to provide its IP video systems for its largest security project in the underground subway system, the company solidified itself on the video surveillance provider sector.

Now, the company has added to its video surveillance portfolio with a new contract, which could be efforts to expand its customer and product base, after reporting a 10 percent decrease year-over-year in its third quarter 2009 results. 

NICE was selected by China’s Chongqing Metro to provide NICE’s digital video security solution to enhance safety and security at the 18 monorail stations of its Line 3 route, against crime and potential threats.

“This is another milestone project, which reflects once more our growing presence in Asia’s security market as well as the unique value add of NICE’s solutions for enhancing the safety and security of transportation networks all over the world,”  Doron Ben-Sira , president APAC, said.

According to company officials, the NICE system was selected following successful deployment of 6 Beijing Metro lines, and comes following the seventh project for Beijing Metro’s Line 15. 

With Beijing JingShiDa Machinery and Equipment Research Institute as the company’s business partner, NICE will facilitate and deploy a highly successful system that will ensure the safety of those travelers aboard the metro, from crime and security threats it could potentially run across.  

The Chongqing Metro is a monorail system in Chongqing, the first of its kind in China, part of the central government's project to develop the Western regions in China. 

NICE’s new system will survey Line 3 that plans to run from north to south, linking the districts separated by Chongqing's two main rivers, the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers. Additionally, the company’s advanced real-time distributed digital video solution will be deployed to help protect passengers and the metro line and stations.
