  • Driving Mass Transit Security

    Visual Defence Inc., Axis Communications and Proxim Wireless are pleased to present the first of a series of webinar’s intended to educate the transportation market about security solutions that are quickly becoming popular in mobile and landside applications.

    Mass transit authorities are under mounting pressure to provide a safe and secure environment for both passengers and staff on their bus, light rail and subway systems. Compounding these demands are the nature of transit system funding accountability and the need for more efficient operations.

    Leading transit authorities are embracing IP video surveillance as one of their tools to address these challenges.  A fully monitored transit environment maintains and even increases ridership, deters crime and vandalism, improves incident response, and protects against fraud or false liability claims – all lowering the cost of operations and maintenance.

    During the webinar we will present a visual roadmap of how an end to end system will help future proof your investment and provide a solution that is scalable, easy to implement and utilize.
