NSW Roads and Maritime Services has issued a request for proposal for the supply of PTZ, thermal, dual PTZ/thermal and fixed CCTV cameras at 15 critical infrastructure sites across New South Wales as part of Stage 2 of a major CCTV upgrade.

According to Roads and Maritime Services, the CCTV systems installed across a number of its critical and strategic RMS infrastructure assets are vital for their protection – Stage 2 of the upgrade will enhance the ability for RMS to monitor and protect these key assets.
 
In Stage 1 of the upgrade, the system’s video management system was recently replaced with a system that can provide transport cluster-wide interoperability and advanced functionality. The CCTV system was also given expanded storage capability and VPN network functionality, providing storage for the higher quality images without reducing the period of storage across the network. Stage 1 of the CCTV upgrade also replaced 160 analogue fixed cameras on the Sydney Harbour Bridge with IP cameras.

Stage 2 will replace the remaining cameras across the 15 sites currently monitored by the RMS control room with IP cameras that allow the application of analytics and further automation of monitoring systems. 

For more information, interested suppliers should contact project manager Paul Ducker at paul.ducker@rms.nsw.gov.au or phone 0476 834 016. The RFP for Stage 2 of the Roads and Maritime Services CCTV system closes on February 19, 2016. ♦
