TOTAL efficiency IN INTELLIGENT INFRASTRUCTURES
On Friday 26 April, the Perex Centre inaugurated its new and improved facilities in Daussoulx, becoming a major actor of national infrastructure. Wallon Minister of Mobility and Transport Carlo Di Antonio, the SOFICO and the Public Service of Wallonia (SPW) were in attendance for this landmark occasion.
Smart Inland Waterways management
The SPW turned to Tein Technology to carry out the first installation and technological overhaul of the facilities, and we happily delivered.
Tein Technology has put in place a brand new full integrated system with a video management system, a communication platform, an access control-intrusion detection system and a fire detection system for a lock located in the Namur region (Salzinnes), allowing the lock operators to easily control it remotely from the Perex Center.
A technological leap for greater capabilities
The Perex Centre is well-known in the Wallon institutional landscape for its role in centralizing and providing traffic updates to road users. The initial building, opened in 1999, was in need of an upgrade and expansion.
The DIAMONIS system of Rijkswaterstaat in the Netherlands is an AIS system to automatically identify ships, both inland and on the North Sea. These vessels send their signals through a transponder with VHF link, which is received by base stations across the country.
Upgrading the entire production environment
All of this information is centralized in two data centres for further processing. The two data centres hold the details of all ships present inland and on the North Sea at any given time.
With the comprehensive upgrade of the production environment, the AIS system was due for renewal too. The current production environment will now be set up as an acceptance system, while a third system will be used for testing in the future.
Less downtime, more reliability
Tein Technology completed the entire project, including a full renewal of all software and hardware and the migration of the current base stations and DIS services into the new production environment, thus improving the system’s availability and reliability.
The MIFID II regulations for the financial industry require that all communications which could lead to a financial transaction be logged, including phone calls.
To remain compliant with these regulations, a large Dutch bank decided it was time for a comprehensive upgrade of its current voice management system. This upgrade was part of the entire renewal of all its dealing rooms in Utrecht, New York and London.
Full implementation of a new voice management system
The old system, which was installed by Tein Technology several years ago, needed to be replaced with an IPC system called Open Trade. IPC turned to Tein Technology for the full implementation of this technology, including the telephone infrastructure and voice management system in the bank’s dealing room in Utrecht, together with 125 phones.
The central database in London combines all voice management systems from all three locations into a single virtual system. However, all datacentres of the bank are located in the Netherlands. The Utrecht voice management system has been connected to the central telephone management system in London, from where the infrastructure of all three sites is configured.
Chapelle-lez-Herlaimont video management system by Tein Technology
Efficiency in the fight against petty crime
Two years ago, Tein Technology was selected to implement an extensive camera network and video management system in Chapelle-lez-Herlaimont (Wallonia). After the town decided to step up the fight against petty crime in the municipality, they began the search for a partner that could develop, install and implement a made-to-measure camera security network.
A smart combination of cameras
Tein Technology installed a comprehensive network of fixed cameras, an ANPR camera and a movable camera, monitoring key locations. High-risk areas such as the city hall, the local sports centre and shopping sites are now monitored by state-of-the-art camera systems connected to a central server where all footage is recorded for analytical purposes.
