Consider this: An intrusion attempt happens in one of the branches at Mumbai. Now, information will automatically flow to the quick-reaction team placed closest to the particular branch. The nearest security agency mitigates the threat. The threat alert also goes to the central management system and the local security agencies near the site.
"The whole process is tuned such that the nearest quick-reaction team will reach the site between 15 to 30 minutes of alert generation," says Vizhakat. "As the CTO, my role is to make sure that the connectivity is robust and the network IT infrastructure is able to support the passage of the video stream."
The project was started in November last year and has already covered over 1000 branches. According to Vizhakat, within the next few months, video surveillance and AIAMS will be implemented all over the country, even in remote places like Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
