Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, announced the signing of a contract with KEMEA, the Centre for Security Studies in Greece, for its participation in EWISA (Early Warning For Increased Situational Awareness), an EU co-funded project, as part of the Security Research Theme of the 7th R&D Framework Program, to provide Security Research Services on land borders. Completion of the project is anticipated by end of May 2019.
A Land Border Surveillance solution was required by EWISA, following the concept of a unified integrated solution for the external EU borders based on data fusion from heterogeneous sensors including video analytics technologies generating intelligent analysis reports. The solution will be implemented, tested and evaluated in the four areas of the project (Greece, Finland, Romania and Spain).
Intracom Telecom has undertaken the provisioning of a new solution to improve the quality and efficiency of services in relation to security issues on topics of common European interest. The project will assess the technological solution and its flexibility to integrate capabilities into the current surveillance infrastructure in order to increase intelligence in video surveillance.
Mr. Nikolaos Velentzas, Deputy General Manager of Intracom Telecom's Services Business Division, stated: "It is a great honor for us to be selected as one of the most capable players in providing a technologically advanced solution to be evaluated by the EU and be implemented in four countries. Leveraging our 40 years of accumulated experience in the telecoms & ICT field and our significant involvement in other EU R&D Framework Programs, we are committed to provide an innovative security and border surveillance solution not only for Europe but for the rest of the world".
