Commentary and Opinions

Acquisition cost versus life-cycle cost has always been a trade-off, often difficult to assess, usually very subjective, and frequently leaving U.S. Government procurement agencies to assume higher risk than necessary in their supplier selection process.  For U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Telephonics Corp.’s solution for the Mobile Surveillance Capability (MSC) and the Integrated Fixed Tower (IFT) network solves this dilemma by providing both low acquisition costs and low life-cycle cost. 
As the use of analog closed-circuit television (CCTV) in video surveillance applications fades, the role of Internet Protocol (IP) based systems is transforming the industry. IP video surveillance systems enable camera placement practically anywhere on the network and live camera feeds can be accessed from any authorized computer, laptop or other device (such as a smart phone) using a wired or wireless Internet connection. 
The smart phone has given government employees and agencies a new window into keeping an eye on suspicious activity. There are many applications on the market today that make mobile surveillance and on-the-move monitoring a reality, seamlessly connecting iPhones, Androids and other smart phones to a variety of end point devices.  But being mobile doesn’t always mean walking around. More often than not, mobile is stationary. It just means being far from the home or office desktop.  The mobile tablet is quickly filling that “in-between” void. 
At a recent press conference, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg revealed the city’s latest crime-fighting technology: a sophisticated city-wide surveillance platform developed with Microsoft that centralizes data from many sources, and displays information in real-time. But New York is not the first major city to announce large-scale city-surveillance undertakings. Other large metropolitan hubs, such as London, Chicago and Toronto, have all advocated the use of advanced city-wide platforms. It is no wonder why.
Many of us in the surveillance industry are quite familiar with television programs, such as CSI and Person of Interest touting the powerful capabilities of video surveillance that can capture reflections in someone’s eyeball or view incidents miles away from the camera.
