r2p announces a new order from Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe AöR for installing a video surveillance system (CCTV) (including Ethernet network)
With the new order r2p will install an innovative IP-video system in 70 underground railway vehicles (H-, HK-Wagen) which are going to be operated in Berlin. The project will start in June 2018 and will include the high-performance hybrid recorder R16-X (product link), the design-award-winning-camera CD9-X (product link / award link) and a network with powerline ethernet connection between the coaches.
In this European public tender, r2p has been able to prevail against a variety of competitors. Paul Martin Christiansen, Key Account Manager at r2p, says: “It was a long way and we are very glad that we were able to make this the technically most demanding as well as economically the most advantageous offer for BVG. We look forward to a long and trustful collaboration.”
