Anti-intrusion protection for railway sites

Context and challenges

Our client is a major player in the railway industry. It wished to strengthen the protection of its infrastructures against break-ins, acts of vandalism and other threats to sites.
The protection is focused on the infrastructures.

The present agreement had the following goals:

  • Deploy a centralised monitoring system to increase surveillance capabilities to up to 100 sites
  • Install protection equipment (intrusion detection, video surveillance) for new sites, and integrate them into the existing system

With these goals in mind, the client called on Assystem to implement a safety system primarily comprising intrusion detection and video surveillance equipment, with the entire system supervised from the Central Security Control Room (CSCR).

Project scope

  • Design and implementation of a centralised monitoring system compatible with the client's information system master plan, and in particular the new video infrastructure currently being deployed
  • For each site:

    • Preliminary site audit to customise the detection systems to the specific nature of the site and the zones to be monitored
    • Specification and delivery of in-field equipment (cameras and detectors)
    • Assistance with deployment and commissioning in cooperation with a partner company

Client benefits

  • More sites protected
  • More effective detection system (fewer false alarms)
  • Optimisation of interventions in response to alarms
  • Reduced maintenance costs for site assets
