Successful CCTV surveillance project implemented in Mauritius

Port-Louis, Republic of Mauritius

Mr. Ramgoolam, the Prime Minister of Mauritius

A grand ceremony was held at the end of 2011 to celebrate the completion of the CCTV street surveillance system and island-wide digital radio communication system turn-key project in Mauritius. Involved in the project, Dahua's video surveillance systems were awarded a "highly-qualified construction certificate" as issued by the Minister of Commerce in Mauritius.
In recent years, Mauritius has enjoyed a continuous urbanisation and its floating population is also on the rise, which inevitably brings some difficulties and pressure on the management of social security; but the limited police force were failing to meet the increasing security demand on such a large scale.

The Mauritian government, therefore, attached great importance to both street surveillance and islandwide digital radio communication system projects and embarked on a search for the top of the range CCTV providers on the market. The final decision after several months of preparation and evaluation, went to Dahua Technology, who successfully went through strategic tests at all levels and won the tender to provide a total CCTV solution for the project.

The project was quite recently completed and approved, after which it was successfully handed over to the Mauritius National Police Administration. The Mauritian officials remarked that Mauritius will definitely benefit a great deal thanks to this project, since it now gives the reassurance to the people and builds a comfortable environment for the country’s development.

The recorded video from the system also serves as forensic material to provide accurate evidence to protect victims’ interests and maintain legal justice. In addition, this system also brings positive effects for traffic surveillance, as traffic flow and congestion can now be controlled and managed more easily, resulting in better reaction and interaction and less congestion and accidents.

Mr. Ramgoolam, the Prime Minister of Mauritius, and Bian Yanhua, the Ambassador of the People's Republic of China to Mauritius, along with other high-ranking governmental officials, took part in the ribbon-cutting ceremony and visited the construction site. Later, Mr. Ramgoolam held a banquet in Port Louis to extend his gratitude and again approved the outstanding job that Dahua had done. In his address he said "Dahua Technology is a trustworthy security solution provider and security products manufacturer."

Dahua Technology was honourably awarded the “highly-qualified construction certificate” as approved and issued by the ministry of commerce, Mauritius. “The approval we received will stimulate us to further scale new heights.” The manager of Dahua Technology responded.

New IP surveillance catches contraband smugglers at county jail

Vivotek solution benefits enforcement system in Argentina

Until Vialseg developed a new system, the traffic light enforcement system in Argentina relied on devices based on physical inductive loops installed under the pavement and a physical connection to the traffic light controller. This traffic light enforcement system without a physical connection to the street and traffic lights created constant down time, and resulted in a lack of captured violations due to road maintenance or lost connection with the traffic light itself as two common examples.
