Mexican law enforcement agency selects AGT and INT to implement City Safety solution to improve quality of life and increase safety for México’s citizens
Zurich, Switzerland – March 10, 2015 – AGT International, a global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for cities, and INT Intelligence and Telecom Technologies, a leading public safety provider in México, announced today they have been awarded a contract to provide the City Safety solution to a Méxican law enforcement agency. By gathering and analyzing data from various sources and connected devices, AGT will provide the agency with access to the critical information and in-depth data analysis needed to better address safety risks and incidents, bringing the benefits of the IoT to life for México’s citizens.
AGT’s smart city solution will improve overall city safety in México by allowing decision makers to respond more quickly to incidents with effective and efficient resolutions to better serve its citizens. INT began to implement and leverage AGT’s City Safety solution to solve critical issues in December 2014.
City Safety uses data fusion and machine-learning capabilities to correlate, validate and provide accurate information for city incident management and daily operations officials. The solution helps law enforcement agencies monitor public areas, accurately detect incidents early on, track potential suspects and respond faster to incidents through analysis of unusual activity patterns. By analyzing millions of data points generated by sensors throughout a city to identify real incidents and reduce false alarms, the City Safety solution will help improve the safety and security of Méxican residents.
“We are honored to bring AGT’s City Safety solution to México in partnership with INT and provide officials with access to the relevant data needed for heightened awareness, better decision making and more effective resource management,” said Mati Kochavi, founder and CEO of AGT International. “Our smart city IoT analytics platform will provide law enforcement officials with the tools they need to create a safer city and provide their constituents with a better quality of life.”
“We are committed to using the most advanced technologies to improve the safety and security of citizens in México,” said Ignacio Roman, Director General of INT. “Our partnership with AGT will allow us to broaden our offering and deliver a complete solution that enables city officials to use previously untapped data for better decision-making, more efficient cities and a safer environment for residents.”
“AGT International is proud to partner with INT to provide the Méxican law enforcement agency with valuable IoT technology that will allow it to more effectively make critical decisions to increase city safety and security,” said Wayne Hull, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Partnerships at AGT International.
The City Safety program will provide the Méxican law enforcement agency with a single, cohesive view of multiple systems, mobile access to critical information and incident detection through video analytics, as well as provide:
- More effective and efficient decision-making;
- Increased safety and security of citizens;
- Quicker investigation of incidents;
- Faster and safer incident resolution;
- Detection and tracking of vehicles for intelligence, investigation and crime prevention;
- Increased situational awareness for first responders and government leaders;
- Protection of critical sites;
- More efficient use of staff; and
- Enhanced collaboration among multiple agencies and field forces.
In June, AGT successfully completed its safe cities test project in Singapore, demonstrating the company’s ability to leverage the IoT to enhance public safety and city management.
