Axis network cameras ready to board Norway trains
Norwegian State Railways is poised for a large-scale surveillance project that involves installing Axis IP cameras in its passenger trains. Axis 209FD-R network cameras will be deployed in railcars, while Axis 221 cameras will provide views in front and behind each train. The system will help to enhance security for passengers and employees as they travel by rail.
Designed specifically for transportation surveillance applications, the Axis 209FD-R measures a mere 4 centimeters high and can be easily mounted on walls and the inner ceiling. It supports Power over Ethernet and delivers clear and detailed images, enabling security personnel to identify suspicious individuals and objects. The Axis 221 network camera features day/night functionality, which will enable Norwegian State Railways to monitor their trains around the clock.
Installation of the Axis network cameras will begin this spring and is expected to be completed on all Norwegian State Railway trains by 2010.
