Verint® Systems, Inc. today announced that Shanghai International Financial Centre (IFC) situated in Pudong Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone is implementing the Nextiva® IP video portfolio from Verint Video Intelligence Solutions™. Part of a multi-phased technology deployment, Shanghai IFC has begun using Verint security solutions to help secure its 70 floor twin towers, which are 260 meters and 250 meters in height respectively, office buildings, hotels, apartments and shopping malls.
Verint, along with its industry-leading integration partner Tongfang Co., Ltd., is delivering a robust security system to help deter crime and enhance the safety of businesses, residents and visitors. The solution being deployed is comprised of Verint’s end-to-end Nextiva Video Management software and intelligent edge devices, which will operate in tandem with more than 1,600 security cameras.
Together with Jin Mao Tower, World Financial Center and the Shanghai IFC, the three major landmarks in Pudong will form the key triangle financial and recreation center in Lujiazui Financial and Trade Zone. Since its establishment in 1990, Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone has grown into a leading international financial center under the visionary guidance of the Chinese government, and today is the home to not only the Shanghai Stock Exchange but also financial institutions and hotels from around the world. Shanghai IFC, the largest integrated complexes development, further enhanced the important role of Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone, targeting and recruiting leasing from top-tier luxurious brands, class-A office building investors, and world-class finance and banking sectors.
To help meet the stringent security requirements of a financial zone-wide solution, Shanghai IFC under the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone sought a powerful, reliable and highly scalable IP video solution. With a strong reputation for providing a comprehensive security platform to enterprise and critical infrastructure organizations, Verint and Tongfang Co., Ltd. emerged as the ideal partners to meet its needs, resulting in a multi-phased rollout of the technology.
“Verint is proud to be part of this integrated real estate project in Shanghai and pleased to be a security support of one of China’s most significant financial and trade center zones,” says Elan Moriah, president, Verint Video Intelligence Solutions and Verint Witness Actionable Solutions®. “Nextiva continues to be the video solution of choice for organizations around the world seeking to advance security, improve situational awareness and enhance operational effectiveness.”
