Axis Network Cameras on Norway’s Railways

STOCKHOLM — Axis Communications’ network cameras will be installed on trains in Norway. Axis’ partner ESP Group, a systems integrator with focus on intelligent video surveillance, received the order for a security solution from NSB, the Norwegian State Railways.

Initially, the order comprises about 3.200 AXIS 209FD-R and AXIS 221 cameras, with a potential for additional installations.

Axis network cameras are part of a solution on the trains to improve security for passengers and personnel. Mounting of the cameras will begin in spring 2008 and is expected to be completed mid-2010. The AXIS 209FD-R will be used for surveillance in the railcars and the AXIS 221 for views in front and behind the train.

“In recent years we have experienced increased interest for installations of network video in the transportation sector,” said Ray Mauritsson, President of Axis Communications. “Axis’ network video products have been installed in many demanding environments, including buses in Stockholm, trains in Zurich and subway cars in Moscow.”
