Mobily to launch video surveillance as a service in Saudi

BARCELONA, February 27, 2016

Saudi-based telecom services operator Mobily has reached an agreement with Digital Barriers and its Saudi partner Advanced Communication Systems (Telequalitas) to launch Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) in the kingdom.

The company clinched the deal on the side lines of Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, Spain.

Cellular-based video solutions are in high demand, especially among law enforcement, defence and security agencies, but solutions available until now have been hampered by the limitations of real-time video streaming.

Now the launch of Mobily’s VSaaS range of solutions, based on Digital Barriers’ world-class streaming technology, EdgeVis Live powered by TVI, will introduce reliable, live, high-definition video streaming to the market for the first time, said a statement from Mobily.
 
The new VSaaS solution will include Digital Barriers’ award-winning, government-accredited video analytics, it stated.

EdgeVis Live offers secure distribution of high-definition, real-time video from anywhere to anywhere, featuring end-to-end security, real world resilience and network optimization, that can stream usable live video using 60 per cent less bandwidth than standard technologies, said the statement.

This exceptionally efficient use of available bandwidth enables EdgeVis Live to deliver significant capability benefits and material cost savings over competing technologies.

EdgeVis Live has already been sold into more than thirty countries, and counts some of the most prominent defense and security agencies in the world as its customers, as well as an increasing number of commercial organisations, it added.

This first of its kind secure, zero-latency solution is critical to helping ensure continued safety and security across the country, said a top official.
 
"We are happy to yet again be pioneers, in terms of bringing advance, innovative solutions to the Kingdom with support of industry leaders like Digital Barriers," remarked Ahmed Farroukh, the CEO of Mobily.

"Our business unit continues to utilize our strong infrastructure as a backbone for delivering state-of-the-art services to the customers, based on their requirements," said Farroukh.

"In addition to the new range of VSaaS solutions, Mobily will also offer its customers a wide range of technologies from Digital Barriers, the world’s leading provider of edge-intelligent surveillance, security and safety technologies optimized for wireless networks," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
