March Networks signs $4M product and services contract with California transportation agency
Contract covers mobile surveillance for entire bus fleet, and up to 7 years of cloud-based monitoring services for maximum video network uptime
Ottawa-based March Networks announced that one of California’s transportation authorities will standardize its entire bus fleet on its RideSafe mobile solution.
The $4 million contract will see more than 400 buses deployed with March Networks’ complete end-to-end RideSafe solution. The contract includes cloud-based monitoring of all of the transportation authority’s mobile cameras and recorders, a services contract providing annual and recurring revenue for March Networks for up to seven years.
With Insight, March Networks’ managed services professionals proactively monitor all video devices and troubleshoot issues remotely, saving customers’ time and money by eliminating unnecessary truck rolls. If a physical update is required, March Networks immediately dispatches a technician to conduct onsite repair services. All activity is logged online, giving customers a complete view of their network via a secure web browser.
Fully integrated with Insight is March Networks’ RideSafe GT Series Hybrid Transit NVRs. The Linux-based recording platforms are purpose-built for transportation environments with industry-recognized SAE J1455-standards and tamper-proof enclosures that protect against dust and moisture. They allow operators to access live and recorded video and search for incidents based on vehicle information like GPS location when managed by March Networks Command for Transit video management software.
The California transportation authority will also deploy March Networks’ ruggedized mobile cameras, including its new SE2 Fleet Dash Camera and SE2 Fleet Wedge Camera.
Both cameras deliver 2MP resolution and feature industry-first LED flicker mitigation technology, which suppresses the strobing in recorded video caused by LED light sources. Eliminating flicker in surveillance video ensures brake lights and other light sources are not mistaken for flicker, and allows for more accurate post-incident investigations.
“By offering the most reliable video surveillance technology and secure cloud-based monitoring services, March Networks is meeting the needs of transportation customers and rapidly growing the services side of our business,” said Net Payne, March Networks chief sales & marketing officer in a statement. “Almost 27 million people rely on this transportation authority’s buses each year. We are proud that our RideSafe solution was chosen to help safeguard this ridership.”
