Abu Dhabi monitoring unit to deploy Cisco solutions

ABU DHABI, October 14, 2017

Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre (ADMCC) has signed an agreement with Cisco to deploy its data centre and security solutions across its operations.

ADMCC was set up to manage and regulate the use of monitoring and control devices systems in public and private facilities and analyse the data provided by the devices, so as to prevent crimes and detect offenders and maintain public security in the emirate.

The strategic co-operation focuses on adopting Cisco’s latest innovations to enable ADMCC to stay at the forefront of technological updates and to harness new trends in the areas of safety and security, said a statement from the company.

Building on their existing relationship, ADMCC will leverage the power of Cisco’s technology solutions and innovation to support ‘Falcon Eye,’ an integrated, live surveillance system deployed across the city of Abu Dhabi.

The collaboration is aimed at achieving the vision for a safe, secure and intelligent city, said ADMCC director general Saeed Saif Al Neyadi after signing the deal with Shukri Eid, the managing director (East Region) Cisco Middle East on the sidelines of Gitex in Dubai.

"ADMCC and Cisco are joining forces to create a more flexible, functional, and secure environment within the Data Centre. Cisco was selected for its leading cybersecurity solutions that help detect and block threats faster with Advanced Malware Protection," noted Al Neyadi.

Launched in July 2016, the ‘Falcon Eye’ project will benefit from Cisco’s state-of-the-art data centre architecture designed specifically to support virtualisation in the data centre based on Cisco’s unified computing system (UCS).

This will support the expansion of Abu Dhabi’s city-wide video surveillance project to help protect citizens and residents and provide a suitable environment for the prosperity and growth in the nation’s capital.

"Safe cities create an environment that attracts the investments, businesses, and talent necessary for economic growth and development," stated Al Neyadi.

On the supply deal, Eid said: "Keeping citizens and assets safe and secure is a critical foundation for the economic and social prosperity of any city.

"We are proud to contribute to Abu Dhabi’s vision for a confident, safe society by working closely with ADMCC to enable government agencies to better pre-empt and respond to emergencies and to safeguard the city’s inhabitants," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
