Axis Communications' network cameras will be installed in 2500 of Stockholm Transport's (SL's) buses. Axis' partner Visual Defence (VDI) has been awarded the contract for an integrated mobile solution for SL's fleet of buses. The installation is planned to take place in the beginning of next year.

Stockholm Transport (SL) has decided to install network cameras in all the buses to increase the security for the passengers and SL personnel in Stockholm. The installation is a part of SL's focus on public safety in Stockholm.

The installation is built on a platform that will combine Axis' network cameras with Visual Defence's Digital Video Storage System mobile and is managed by Visual Defence's centralized Management platform. The Axis network cameras provide high image quality and Power over Ethernet, which result in a cost-efficient installation.

"During the last year we have noted an increased interest in network video installations within the transportation sector. I'm pleased to see that the cooperation with Visual Defence has resulted in an additional installation for Stockholm Transport. Earlier this year Visual Defence and Axis announced an installation in the subway system and at commuter train stations in Stockholm," says Ray Mauritsson, President of Axis Communications.
