Synectics worked with Nexus to increase safety and security around busy ticketing and gating areas in their stations, as well as providing on-board systems for 60 trains.
Nexus was experiencing major problems with crime and threats to the safety of the general public and their staff.
They turned to us, as our on-board CCTV systems for rail and tram are deployed around the globe, and we work hard to meet the ever-growing surveillance requirements of our customers such as Alstom Transport UK, Keolis, Supertram, Tramlink and DLR London, City Munich SWM, Skoda Transport, and Deutsche Bahn DB.
We created an innovative solution by installing state-of-the-art CCTV and help points in each station and the surrounding environments, integrated and delivered through Nexus’ high-capacity network to create a virtual matrix across the Nexus estate.
After liaising with five local authorities and the police to create a fully integrated and supported security network, we delivered a surveillance system across all stations monitored at the central Metro control room, enabled with priorities determined to allow control of cameras from any control facility.
Nexus provides, plans, and promotes public transport to improve the economic prosperity of Tyne and Wear, and the daily lives of its people.
