CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, has received an expansion order for the integration and information management platform for the District of Columbia under their city wide Situation Awareness Program. CNL Software has deployed the largest city wide PSIM solution in the United States today.
The integration program creates a unified and central interface where situational awareness and monitoring requirements of multiple agencies within the District of Columbia can be managed and processed. Over 5,000 CCTV cameras are operating by multiple District agencies. Over the years, each agency has developed its own video control solution to fit its own requirements, with different applications, manufacturers, and control centers. The capability to share video data is critical during extraneous circumstances that require situational awareness above and beyond that of daily operations. Bringing together these various and separate resources onto one platform will ultimately improve emergency preparedness and response.
Following a successful commissioning of the initial phase of the DC Situation Awareness program, the expansion order will add additional agencies to the program and well over 2,000+ CCTV cameras bringing the total to 7,000+ cameras operated by multiple agencies.
The solution provided by CNL Software is one of the most advanced situational awareness systems in use today. CNL’s IPSecurityCenter™ provides the integration and management platform to bring together systems from manufacturers including Cisco, Pelco, GE, Dedicated Micros, Bosch, ActiVu, DMP and ShotSpotter. Intelligence will be aggregated by IPSecurityCenter™ from all of these systems to deliver complete situation management capabilities.
Matthew Kushner, CNL President, of Americas says, “This ongoing relationship with the District of Columbia through the expansion of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) fortifies their commitment to lead the way in technology and innovation to create a safe environment for all who reside and travel through DC. It also signals the increase in the overall adoption of PSIM in the Safe City vertical. This expansion, paired with other recent, significant safe city wins, confirms PSIM will continue to be a rapidly adopted platform.”
