Surveillance solution helping on campus territory

Axis cameras ensure security for Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration

“Practice shows that too much security is never enough. With Axis IP cameras we can see now everything that happens on the Academy’s territory in high quality and real time, and, when necessary, we can offer evidence for police investigations. In the near future, we plan to expand our video surveillance solution by purchasing about 500 cameras for the Academy and to use their extensive analytical capabilities more effectively.” Valery Toporovsky, Head of the monitoring and operational control Department, RANEPA.


The main campus of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA) covers an area of more than 20 hectares, including several educational facilities, a library, a dormitory, a hotel, parking and administrative buildings. Before working with Axis, only 20 analog cameras were deployed on the entire campus and they were not able to monitor all of the facilities or gather video evidence due to poor image quality. The Academy management team looked for a more effective territory monitoring and surveillance solution to increase safety and security of employees and students as well as protect against unauthorized access to facilities and other unpleasant incidents.


A video surveillance system based on Axis IP cameras was selected as the optimal solution because it offered not only high quality and ease-of-use, but also low equipment costs. The latter was particularly important since an entirely new surveillance system was needed. POLISERVICE CFO, the local integrator, working with monitoring and operational control, installed a total of 390 cameras (fixed, dome, PTZ) indoors, outdoors and on the campus perimeter in several project stages. All of these cameras were integrated into a network using Milestone XProtect® software.


After deploying the new video surveillance solution, operators of the Academy’s monitoring center can now quickly respond to every incident, and when necessary, play video or audio records from the archive. Video records can be used as evidence for police investigations if needed. Also, the first steps were made to integrate cameras with an access control system to provide even more security for the Academy.
