The Government of Gujarat has collaborated with Orange Business Services to install and manage state-of-the-art public safety and security infrastructure as part of the safe and secure Gujarat initiative.

Orange was chosen by the Gujarat government on the basis of a competitive selection process based on the superior results on surveillance and auto number plate recognition (ANPR) solutions.

The project has been commissioned to improve the security of the state by implementing surveillance and intelligent traffic management system in order to reduce crime and traffic violations.

This initiative will be executed in two phases. The first phase will cover 40 cities and would be further expanded to cover all 120 cities across the state. Under the first phase, Orange along with Gujarat Informatics Limited (GIL) would be responsible for the development of a robust system for 34 command and control centers, and one integrated command and control centre in the capital. The scope also includes implementation, operations and management for five years.

Orange will provide support for computing infrastructure, storage, network, applications, and IT security at the state’s command control centers. It would also provide high-end internet protocol (IP) surveillance cameras running on video management system equipped with video analytics, ANPR, traffic signal violation and speed detection systems.

With the help of advanced analytics software and hardware solutions, the company will develop a common platform for a holistic city view which would provide a unified public safety service, coordinating security response units, city police, and medical dispatch.

The advanced command and control centre will be set up to receive video feeds from more than 6,300 IP cameras over a future-proof wireless network. It would run on sophisticated video analytics to monitor crowds and traffic congestion, detect incidents of theft, observe suspicious people or objects, and trigger automated alarms in emergency situations.

Commenting on the project, Bala Mahadevan, Chief Executive Officer, Orange Business Services, India said, “Orange has always been at the forefront of deploying smart city infrastructure and providing support on projects regarding internet of things (IoT), data collection, transport, storage, and analysis, guaranteeing a high level of security. Safety and security is a reflection of holistic growth, and we are proud to be collaborating with Government of Gujarat on this vital critical infrastructure project, which will ultimately lead to a smarter, safer, and more prosperous Gujarat.”
