Upgrade and extension of camera surveillance system Brussels North Police Department

Putting Tein Technology’s expertise to work in our own back yard

The latest stage in the longstanding partnership between the Brussels North Police Department and Tein Technology – which started in 2011 – has been the complete renewal of the current video management system, together with the addition of several new camera locations and the connection of the current video surveillance system with the interior cameras in the police department buildings.

Maximal cooperation with other departments

After the Brussels Capital Region offered all the municipalities the possibility to opt-in on one general system, the Brussels North Police Department chose to continue with its own infrastructure. However, to guarantee optimal cooperation, the system required certain technical and digital adaptations.

Since Tein Technology has installed the entire camera surveillance network on the territory, our teams know the ins and outs of the system like the back of their hand.

In partnership with Cegelec Infra

The Tein Technology experts ensured that the video feed of the entire network can easily be exchanged with other police departments in the Brussels region. The infrastructure was upgraded and renewed, together with Cegelec Infra Technics that took all infrastructural works in hand. Tein Technology realized the entire configuration and installation of the management system itself.

In total, the camera management system now combines the feeds of over 150 exterior cameras and the same number of interior cameras.

New Perex Centre 4.0 : Tein Technology futureproofs Inland Waterways management

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.

Tein Technology improves the DIAMONIS updating process for Rijkswaterstaat

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.

IPC telephone infrastructure for dealing room of a large bank, another successful Tein Technology project

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.
