The Police Selects NICE’s Comprehensive and Open Security Solution, to Enhance Safety at 2010 Commonwealth Games

Ra’anana, Israel, September 13, 20010 - NICE Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: NICE), the worldwide  leader of intent-based solutions that extract insight to impact business performance, reduce financial risk and ensure safety and security, today announced that India’s HCL Security, NICE’s strategic partner and the project’s prime contractor, will be implementing NICE’s integrated security solution at India’s Delhi Police. NICE will enable Delhi Police with an integrated command, control, coordination and communication center (C4i) solution to meet operational requirements for the upcoming October 2010 Commonwealth Games 2010 and beyond.

Delhi Police selected HCL-NICE consortium through competitive bidding in anticipation of the 2010 Commonwealth Games to manage and enhance the police response to security events. The Commonwealth Games is a multi-sport event with participants representing the fifty-four independent states that are members of the Commonwealth of Nations. The Delhi Police will implement the NICE solutions to fuse data from multiple systems and sensors, dispersed across 45 sites throughout the city, including sporting venues, metro stations, markets and police stations.

The pre-integrated NICE solution is based on NICE Situator, NICE’s situation management solution. NICE Situator offers broad interoperability with many third party solutions for video analytics, video surveillance systems, Tetra(Terrestrial Trunked Radio) IP network for public safety, and GIS, among others. This approach delivers a single, holistic operational view and enhances real-time response by automating procedures, as well as information sharing. The NICE solution also enables comprehensive debriefing by full reconstruction of an event and response to it, leveraging NICE Inform incident information management solution and NICE screen encoders for screen capture of the command and control room’s inputs during security events.
A senior officer, at Delhi Police, said, “We are proud that Delhi is hosting this year’s Commonwealth Games. At the same time, this means that our police force has the great responsibility for ensuring the safety and security of our visiting athletes, international and local government officials, and millions of sport fans. To achieve these goals in the most professional and reliable way we selected  HCL-NICE consortium, which was the only vendor who could provide us with an open solution that enables situation management that integrates with such a great number of security systems, providing us with real-time capabilities for handling security events throughout the entire city, should they occur.”

“We are pleased to have been selected for this project and help the DelhiPolice protect the participants and attendees of the 2010 Commonwealth Games, as well as the Delhi residents beyond the games,” said Israel Livnat, President, NICE Security Group. “The city of Delhi will be responsible for the security of attendees and participants from all over the world at the force’s command and control center and headquarters, making this project all the more important for representing the Delhi Police professionalism and leading edge capabilities. With our previous success in India, and all over the world, in deploying large-scale security management solutions with complex implementations, we are proud to partner with Delhi Police in ensuring the safety and security of its city’s residents and guests.”
