About The Customer
Nanded City, located in India's Maharashtra State, is home to approximately 1.2 million residents. The city is of great spiritual significance for the Sikh religion, featuring numerous Gurdwaras (places of worship) and attracting a heavy influx of visitors all year round. The city leaders, recognizing the need for enhanced security, initiated the C-Cube project, a command, control, and communication center designed to monitor the entire city. The city officials, in collaboration with security consultants MIPL and system integrator Samarth Security Systems (India) Pvt. Ltd., sought to implement a comprehensive and affordable safe city solution.
The Challenge
Nanded, a city in India's Maharashtra State, is a significant spiritual hub for the Sikh religion, attracting a large number of visitors throughout the year. The city leaders identified a need to enhance security and realized that an innovative approach was necessary to meet their needs and budget requirements. This led to the inception of the C-Cube project, Nanded’s command, control, and communication center, designed to monitor the entire city. The challenge was to design a Safe City solution that would provide comprehensive functionality within the budget constraints. The city leaders, along with security consultants MIPL and system integrator Samarth Security Systems (India) Pvt. Ltd., were tasked with this responsibility.
The Solution
Qognify developed a safe city solution for Nanded's C-Cube, which consisted of several integrated components to provide law enforcement with situational awareness and management. The solution included a Situation Management backbone, video surveillance, high-resolution and night vision cameras, pre-configured advanced Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in the local language, and panic buttons deployed throughout the city. The solution addressed specific challenges such as disaster management, crowd formation and social unrest, citywide public address system, and VIP route monitoring and processing. The solution leveraged Qognify's video management system (VMS) as their public address system, eliminating the need for additional equipment. The system also allowed for real-time monitoring during VIP route monitoring.
Operational Impact
  • The implementation of the safe city solution by Qognify has led to significant improvements in Nanded City's security and operational efficiency. The city has become a benchmark for urban security in India, demonstrating the effectiveness of comprehensive surveillance and communication systems. The system has not only enhanced the city's ability to handle incidents but also improved operations and communications. The public address system, which allows quick communication with citizens, and the panic buttons deployed throughout the city, have been particularly effective in emergency situations. Furthermore, the surveillance program has led to improved traffic and parking patterns, contributing to the overall efficiency of the city.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Nanded became one of the first cities in India to implement a safe city program.
  • 24/7 monitoring of the city area was achieved, enhancing safety and security.
  • The system facilitated faster crime investigations.
