Port of Miami Selects NICE IP Video Surveillance Solution to Enhance its Security for Millions of Annual Cruise Passengers and Cargo


Number one cruise port in the world replaces analog system with NICE solution to enhance passenger safety and port security

Ra’anana, Israel, NICE Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: NICE), the global provider of advanced solutions that enable organizations to extract Insight from Interactions to drive performance, today announced that it has been selected by the Port of Miami to provide its NiceVision Net IP video surveillance solution. Among America’s busiest ports and recognized for its dual distinction as the “Cruise Capital of the World” and the “Cargo Gateway of the Americas,” the Port of Miami will deploy the NICE IP video surveillance solution as part of an upgrade to enhance safety and security for more than four million cruise passengers and 7.4 million tons of cargo that pass through the Port each year. The Port of Miami selected the NiceVision Net IP video surveillance solution after completing an extensive evaluation of video surveillance solutions.

When fully implemented, the NiceVision Net IP video surveillance solution will upgrade the Port’s current analog video surveillance system and help secure all of the Port’s facilities, parking garages, commercial cargo and passenger cruise terminals. Using the NICE solution, Port officials will be able to remotely and centrally monitor and manage hundreds of pre-existing analog cameras, along with newly-installed IP video surveillance cameras, benefitting from NICE’s seamless migration path to IP and unified management capabilities.

“The implementation of NICE’s video surveillance system is another example of how the Port of Miami is implementing cutting-edge technology to strengthen our ability to provide a safe and secure environment for both our port users,” said Bill Johnson, Port of Miami Director.

“The Port I.T. Section conducted market research via the creation of a sandbox for video surveillance solution providers to demonstrate their capabilities. Any provider that was interested in participating in our market research was provided the opportunity to demonstrate the performance of their product. We asked the providers to tie into our existing analog system, furnish an IP infrastructure and demonstrate their system operation and performance,” said Louis Noriega, Chief of Information Systems for the Port of Miami . ”The Port then conducted a hands-on evaluation, scoring each solution based on thirty-six key criteria. NICE received the highest rating,” Noriega added.

“The Port of Miami is renowned as one of the world’s leading ports, and for its cutting-edge technology and progressive procedures for advancing safety and security,” said Chris Wooten, President, Security Division Americas, NICE. “NICE is very proud to have been selected for this important port security upgrade, especially in light of the Port’s diligent evaluation. We look forward to partnering with the Port of Miami to help further improve its security operations.”
