Reliance Industries partners with Siemens to unveil homeland security solutions

Reliance Security Solutions, a subsidiary of Reliance Industries (RIL) and Siemens have signed an agreement to jointly develop homeland security solutions for safe, secure and smart cities and highways in India.

The Indian security market is expected to be one of the largest growing markets in the world over the next decade and this initiative will result in India joining a select set of advanced nations which are beginning to use 4G wireless networks for law enforcement purposes.

The role of surveillance and security has assumed a greater level of importance considering the fact that insurgency and terrorism has become a global phenomenon. With the traditional security platforms being inadequate to address these new challenges, there is a emerging need to move over to intelligent electronic security solutions.

With contiguous, pan-India Broadband Wireless Access spectrum, Reliance plans to offer fourth generation (4G) wireless networking services for safety, security and other advanced applications. Reliance and Siemens will combine to leverage the 4G network for the low latency and assured Quality of Service (QoS) required for video and security applications.

Reliance has designed and operates the world’s largest integrated security automation system consisting of over 12,000 cameras apart from tens of thousands of other advanced security sensors, radars, and video analytics among others. It has implemented advanced command and control centres for security of its own critical infrastructure for more than a decade. Reliance also has vast domain experience with hundreds of security and safety professionals having background in Defence, Paramilitary and Police, as well as its own internally trained resources.

Siemens Building Technologies, a division of Siemens, offers advanced security solution called Siveillance. Siveillance is the family name of all elements of the Security Solutions portfolio from Siemens. These solutions have been designed and developed at the Siemens R&D facility at Chennai.

Siemens Siveillance is a comprehensive security suite of solutions integrating intelligent video surveillance and command and control – providing customers with one single management platform for all their security demands.

It transforms traditional security into an intelligent environment providing automated threat detection based on smart algorithms and advanced command & control capability to manage incidents with a high degree of precision. Siveillance ensures protection for critical infrastructure, cities and for the people within.


Siveillance solutions provide a reliable and efficient security platform to specifically meet the expanding security and surveillance requirements of wide area protection for critical infrastructure, public areas, cities, highways, iconic buildings and installations of vital economic interest. These security solutions have been highly successful with a variety of very large scale installations worldwide like the Dubai Police HQ, Doha 2006 Asian Games, Qatar, and Port of Rotterdam, Netherlands etc.
