The Publica Awards were presented on 2 June during the Publica Trade Show that was held at Tour & Taxis, Brussels. The Publica Awards reward government bodies and their partners who make efforts to improve the tendering out of government contracts. Nextel was one of the finalists with our implementation of SecuriQam for the local authority.
Awards for the most progressive government contracts
During the Publica Awards, the search was on for four categories of winner who impressed the sector with their inventiveness and creativity. Nextel was a worthy finalist with our SecuriQam project for Diepenbeek municipality.
In recent years, Nextel has received increasing numbers of requests for a movable camera solution. The solution that cities and local authorities were looking for was not available as such on the market. As a result, major additions always had to be made in the area of applicability and ease of use. This is why Nextel chose to develop a new solution itself: SecuriQam. To this end, Nextel could build on many years’ experience in the IP camera surveillance world and thus attune the solution fully to the users’ expectations.
The Nextel SecuriQam was not only entirely developed in-house. As integrator of ICT, operator and security solutions, Nextel always arranged the connection with the client’s network or with the GSM network too. This is exactly how we can offer our clients a great advantage.
For a while there was a fly-tipping problem at one of the squares in our district. This is now a thing of the past thanks to the use of SecuriQam, Nextel’s intelligent and movable camera. We used the cameras on the square for a month.
The specialist in city surveillance
Nextel is the specialist in public camera surveillance and technological security solutions. Our Safespot provides a security solution to cities and local authorities. This solution comprises movable cameras such as the SecuriQam, permanent cameras at known trouble spots and cameras with number plate recognition.
The Safespot solution has already been rolled out successfully at many customers. This is how the Mechelen Police Zone can claim to be a pioneer in the area of camera surveillance, and also how Mechelen is now one of the most secure cities in Belgium.
Other important references are the Police Zones of Mechelen-Willebroek, Limburg Capital Region and Lebbeke-Buggenhout, the Police of Liège, Charleroi and Ukkel, and the Municipalities of Diepenbeek, Dendermonde and Leopoldsburg.
