Public Safety Broadband Reference 1: Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority proposalsSummary of Work Performed:Public Safety Broadband worked with several Prime System Integrators including IBM to develop proposal teams and proposals for the WMATA Video surveillance trainsystem.WMATA project included installation of a video network on passenger trains that would record and save recorded images of activity on railcars and provide real time accessto live video when trains are in selected passenger stations and /or the rail yard. The system will also provide access to camera views to WMATA Transit Police Officers onthe train or in select stations using a portable tablet style computer. The system will provide for analytics. The first phase of the project covers 11 miles of track to beexpended to 100 miles of track.Evacuated equipment and provided compliant reports for multiple equipment vendors, including these major vendors: Wireless vendors: (Firetide, Proxim, Cisco, and ArubaNetworks), Analytics vendors: (Activu, ObjectVideo, AgentVi, and Object Video Analytics, VMS vendors: ( Genetec, Smiths Detection, OnSSI, MileStone, & Nice);Camera vendors: (Axis, Mobotix and Vivotek), Ethernet train sensors vendors: (ICPDAS, Lonworks, SQ-RPS, ADF and Spectra Guard), Train Location system vendors:(Brendel Associates and Inspired Systems), 4G Router vendors: Sierra Wireless and Verizon Wireless)Designed the TrainProtect™ system for the WMATA project. The design included the Wireless Network for Cisco, Firetide and Aruba equipment, Cellular 4G network,Camera Solution, VMS Dynamic Map solution (New Genetec train module required) and Optional Analytics solutions. The design also included several Custom Modulesand Harden Rugged computer required by the project, to be manufactured by Public Safety Broadband. The custom modules included: Ethernet I/O Sensor, Ethernet G-Force Sensor, Lonworks-Time-Sync Sensor, Ethernet J1939 train protocol Adapter, Intelligent DC-DC power supply with UPS and 8 Port POE switch, and Intel Core i5IP65 Rugged Server (Required for Genetec VMS and Optional Analytics installed on the lead train car).Developed the Product Marketing Specification for the required Genetec TrainProtect™ modules, approved by Genetec. Genetec modules:VMS Dynamic Map, EthernetSensor drivers, updated drive for the Vivotek MD7560 HD Camera to support the integrated 64GB of video storage)Worked with Genetec to evacuate and test the Genetec VMS solution installed on the AXIS Q8108 NVR Server.Developed the Product Marketing Specification for the optional TrainProtect™ Analytics module, approved by Activu, ObjectVideo, AgentVi, and Object Video AnalyticsPartner with Anixter to provide bundle pricing for the project.
Public Safety Broadband Reference 2: Train Intersection Wireless Camera Network, City of Riverside, CAPoint of Contact InformationSteve Reneker, (951) 826-5109, SReneker@riversideca.govCIO of the City of RiversideCity of Riverside3900 Main StreetRiverside, CA 92522Location of Work Performance: Riverside, CASummary of Work Performed:Public Safety Broadband designed and managed the deployment of a Train Intersection Wireless Camera Network for the City of Riverside, which included a City-Wide pointto multipoint wireless video surveillance network at 12 train intersections throughout the City. PSB developed the team to deploy this solution, which consisted of PSB,WiFiCityWide, and Insight Video Net. The system was deployed to detect when a train stops on the train intersection for more than 5 minutes. PSB also designed anddeveloped the Wireless Video Surveillance Camera System and wireless PTM wireless network. The camera system included an analog camera, Video Encoder, InfiNetWireless 2.4 Mesh Router and 5.8 PTP Router all integrated into one enclosure. The system also included a train detection solution that reported to the monitoring stationany time a train stop on the tracks. The wireless network included 16 wireless PTP links with two repeater sites, which link up the train intersection cameras in an area thatcovered 50 square miles. The camera systems also included a 2.4 wireless mesh router, which allowed Riverside’s Police vehicles to access the camera within a ¼ mile areaaround each of the 12 camera sites. This 2.4 mesh interface is also used to manage the camera system on site. The 12 cameras are connected back to the City Hall VideoNetwork monitoring station. The Train system was managed by Genetec Omnicast system. The Video Management system monitors over 250 cameras in the City ofRiverside.
Public Safety Broadband Reference 3 City-Wide 4.9 GHz Public Safety Camera Network, City of Riverside, CAPoint of Contact InformationSteve Reneker, (951) 826-5109, SReneker@riversideca.govCIO of the City of RiversideCity of Riverside3900 Main StreetRiverside, CA 92522Location of Work Performance: Riverside, CASummary of Work Performed:Public Safety Broadband is currently deploying 4.9 GHz city-wide video surveillance cameras on the Riverside City-Wide 50 square mile 4.9 GHz Public SafetyNetwork. Public Safety Broadband designed, developed, and manufactured the 4.9 GHz wireless video surveillance camera system currently being used in Riverside.The Riverside camera include an AXIS IP camera, 4.9 Wireless Client, and 4.9 GHz Wireless AP. The 4.9 GHz wireless client connects the camera automatically to the4.9 GHz City-Wide network. The camera was developed to be quickly deployed anywhere in the 50 square miles of the City of Riverside. The camera solution isintegrated into a single enclosure, with a 90-280VAC power supply, AXIS 214 IP camera, 4.9GHz Wireless Client, and 4.9 GHz Wireless AP. The complete systemweights less than 10lb and can be relocated by a single person in less than 60 min anywhere within the 50 square mile network. The built in 4.9 GHz AP also providesan IAN Incident Area Network between Police Vehicles and the camera, allowing streaming video directly to the Police Officer’s vehicle. This local 4.9 AP interface isalso used to manage the camera system on site. The Riverside Genetec Omnicast network allows video from any of these camera to be streamed into any of theRiverside mobile police vehicles. The PSB camera system can also be powered by 12VDC and deployed as a portable system installed on a tripod. Riverside is alsotesting PSB Cellular Router option to provide a portable solution that can be deployed outside their City-Wide Network. Riverside is also testing PSB’s RS-232 SerialServer module to monitor Riverside’s electric distribution system equipment throughout the city. The integrated RS-232 Serial Server allows Riverside to remotelymonitor and control any Citywide equipment equip with a RS232 management port.Public Safety Broadband also developed the team of Lockheed Martin and WiFiCityWide to bid on the RFP for the City of Riverside Citywide 2.4/4.9 50 sq-mile CityWide wireless Network. Public Safety Broadband designed and deployed the Pilot network for this proposal, which covered several blocks with a 2.4 and 4.9 PublicSafety Network. The Pilot also included, installing in-car video system in several of Riverside’s Police and Fire vehicles that interfaced to the pilot wireless network.PSB demonstrated several wireless applications including wireless video streaming in and out of Police and Fire vehicles, Wireless Meter Reading and Wireless VoIP.PSB also demonstrated connecting existing Riverside business’ surveillance into the 4.9GHz mesh network, which allowed Riverside’s Police department to see livevideo of locate business surveillance systems. PSB also used the Riverside pilot network to organize a major Public Safety and Public Access demonstration inpartnership with the Riverside CIO, Fire and Police departments of the City of Riverside. The must-attend event was attended by over 300 public safety professionals,municipal IT professionals, technology end-users, wireless service providers, system integrators, dealers and consultants.
