R.K. INFRATEL Provides Optical Fiber for India's First Surveillance Project Covering Entire City of Surat

SURAT, India, January 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Underground Optical Fiber Network Project Successfully Completed Within Four Months

R.K. INFRATEL LTD, a leading infrastructure service provider company for telecom/oil/gas/CATV/ISP in Gujarat, has successfully completed the project of providing the entire underground optical fiber cable (OFC) network for the 'Safe City Surat' Project.

The project was initiated by the Surat City Police Department and Surat Traffic Education Trust to enhance the safety and security of the citizens of Surat. It is also the first project in India that covers an entire city on a hi-tech CCTV network under the PPP Scheme.

Under the PPP Scheme, the underground OFC was provided free of cost for the first year and at a highly subsidised cost for the next four years by R. K. INFRATEL.

"The project was challenging as it was not easy for us to cover every corner of the city to connect the CCTV camera to the Central Command Control Centre. Our team worked extensively on this to execute the roll-out of the project within the stipulated time of 4 months. This project is an endeavour by us to take part in the noble cause of helping the people of Surat," said Rajendra Sheth, Chairman & MD, R. K. INFRATEL LTD.

The uniqueness of this network is its seamless and uninterrupted connectivity on end-to-end optical fiber with three cut protection. Considering the criticality of the project, the entire network has been created on underground fiber with the HDD method, which strengthens this network to deliver 99.99% uptime.

Being the sole provider of the project, R. K. INFRATEL has designed and rolled out the entire project without alliances with any network or telecom provider.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
