CP PLUS enhances security at BOC Branches and 715 ATMs acrossSri Lanka with a Leading-Edge 4MP IP-based CCTV Solution
The Bank of Ceylon recognized the need for upgrading the security infrastructure across its more than 650 branches and about 715 ATMs spread over 25 administrative districts of Sri Lanka. Understanding the need of the hour, CP PLUS, a global leader in the surveillance industry, came forward to upgrade the Bank's security system from Analogue CCTV to a digital IP-based infrastructure with advanced 4MP cameras that offer numerous benefits.
When faced with the need to enhance its surveillance system to record and save high-quality digital CCTV videos, along with establishing a central command and control center for live monitoring, complete with efficient VPN and CCTV video network setups at each branch, one of the major banks in Sri Lanka, BOC reaffirmed its confidence in CP PLUS. The advanced India-made IP solution provided by CP PLUS has also been designed to offer real-time monitoring at each branch as well as regional networks through a unified CMS Software platform.
Ensuring the safety and protection of both an establishment and its visitors remains of utmost importance in facilitating seamless daily operations. The bank's reliance on analog technology in the past resulted in restricted resolution, consequently diminishing the quality and precision of their recorded videos. Furthermore, the outdated analog system encountered constraints in transmitting video signals over distances and was vulnerable to deterioration along extended cable routes.
The absence of adaptability posed challenges in accommodating evolving surveillance requirements and efficiently monitoring expansive areas. Additionally, dealing with maintenance and management concerns added to the complications. Recognizing the obsolescence of the analog- driven CCTV system previously deployed across hundreds of BOC branches, the bank decided to elevate the security of its branches and clientele across the country. Originally, the Bank of Ceylon had installed cameras from multiple brands in different branches. The bank needed to come up with a solution that could enable the migration of this mixture of the hybrid legacy to a unified and integrated platform.
Following thorough assessments, the Bank of Ceylon in Sri Lanka opted for CP PLUS' state-of-the-art IP-based 4MP technology. This technology was employed to deploy cutting-edge IP-based cameras across their extensive network of over 650 branches and 715 ATMs. The IP solution crafted by CP PLUS was specifically designed to tackle the array of challenges previously encountered by the bank. This solution not only resolved these challenges but also facilitated enhanced integration with third-party security and information systems, encompassing alarm systems, access control solutions, and various other technologies, resulting in a seamless amalgamation.
The IP-centered CCTV system provided by CP PLUS to BOC also embraces advanced analytics and video processing functionalities, including facial recognition, object tracking, and intelligent motion detection. CP PLUS' Project Design Team orchestrated the installation and fusion of a centralized monitoring platform equipped with customized alerts to flag suspicious activities at the Centralized Command and Control facilities (CCC) within each branch. Notably, the CCC has been meticulously optimized to proficiently manage substantial video files across BOC's VPN-based data network.
The implementation of CP PLUS' IP-based CCTV solution, complemented by the integration of a centralized video management system, has significantly elevated the level of situational awareness and responsiveness across the extensive network of over 650 branches operated by the Bank of Ceylon (BOC).
This transition from traditional analog technology to advanced IP-based systems has not only brought about a technological shift but has also empowered BOC to establish a markedly safer banking environment. By embracing this upgrade, the bank has not only met industry standards but has also set new benchmarks for excellence in the realm of banking security within Sri Lanka. The amalgamation of cutting-edge surveillance technology and a centralized management system has fostered a dynamic synergy that enables the bank to effectively monitor its diverse branches, promptly respond to evolving situations, and assure its customers and stakeholders of a heightened level of security and service.
