Rockaway, NJ (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
Activu® Corporation, a leading provider of IP-based visualization and collaboration solutions for mission-critical command and control center environments, is pleased to announce that it has designed, built, installed and commissioned a turnkey large-scale visualization system at the Statewide Transportation Operations Center in the State of North Carolina’s Joint Forces Headquarters (JFHQ) building in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The Joint Forces Headquarters brings together staff from North Carolina’s departments of Transportation, Highway Patrol, National Guard and Emergency Management under one roof for coordinated routine and emergency operations. Specifically, at the facility’s new Statewide Transportation Operations Center (STOC), the North Carolina Department of Transportation is co-located with the Turnpike Authority and NC DOT’s Incident Management Assistance Patrol. The new 236,000 square feet building features state-of-the-art technology, equipment and network infrastructure, and facilities such as a 400-seat auditorium, a dedicated media briefing room, a large situation room and multiple breakout and conference rooms.
Activu’s secure, Internet Protocol (IP) and open standards based visualization and collaboration solution is as an integral part of the state’s Triangle Expressway Intelligent Transportation (ITS) system and allows the NCDOT to easily share information from 400 closed circuit television cameras, over 600 vehicle detectors and 5 roadway weather information systems with other agencies at the JFHQ and beyond. This sharing, where all stakeholders see exactly the same information, improves situational awareness, helps develop a common operating picture and significantly improves the quality and speed of decision-making which, in turn, helps the DOT fulfill its mission of safely and efficiently moving people, goods and services. Activu’s software accommodates NCDOT’s legacy analog infrastructure, bridges it with newer network and mobile technologies, and offers operators a single point of control.
“Activu is delighted to be a part of this initiative. We strongly believe that North Carolina’s state-of-the-art integrated Joint Forces operations center is the wave of the future because it underscores the profound importance of inter-agency cooperation for effective monitoring and emergency response. We also believe that the opportunity and scale of inter-agency cooperation at this center will help us improve and expand our own product capabilities.” said Paul Noble, Activu CEO.
