Milestone Systems Middle East has recently awarded Outstanding Award of the year 2017 to the Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre (MCC) Director General, His Excellency Saeed Saif Al Neyadi and Project Director Khalfan Al Hassani.
Abu Dhabi is regarded as one of the safest cities on the planet, and surveillance plays a key role in keeping the city safe and secure. The MCC was established by the Abu Dhabi government to manage and regulate the use of monitoring and control devices in public and private facilities. It analyses the data provided to help prevent crime and maintain public security in the emirate.
In order to respond fast and proactively to threats, the ability to not only collect data but to also extract actionable intelligence from data from diverse sources, such as video surveillance, sensors, access control, and IT systems, is critical. By deploying a solution based on the Milestone video management system (XProtect) and Vidsys situation management software, the MCC is now able to integrate information from more than 15,000 cameras across 100 sites in the city.
The open architecture, real-time solution enables MCC to merge technologies of different types, such as cameras, sensors and registration plate recognition, and pull data from various sensors around the city; heavily trafficked pedestrian areas, public transportation sites and major intersections, to ensure public safety and heighten situational awareness.
“ADMCC ICT Division are truly honoured and grateful to be the recipient of this prestigious award for Milestone Outstanding Achievement Awards of the year 2017,” said Khalfan Al Hassani, ICT Director ADMCC. “We give thanks to Milestone for delivering excellent products and services to Abu Dhabi in support of the vision of His Highness Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Abu Dhabi. Our success is rooted in loyalty, innovation and unfaltering dedication from rare individuals that work in and support Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre (ADMCC). We are proud to call Milestone a partner to ADMCC. It is with sincere gratitude that we thank Milestone for the contributions they have made to the continued success of our organization and our great city. We look forward to working with Milestone for many more years to come.”
Christian Ringler, Milestone Director Middle East, Africa, and DACH also shares this sentiment: “We are very happy and proud to work closely with MCC on several projects in Abu Dhabi and are looking forward to continuing this strong collaboration in the future.”
