Mobily signs with Digital Barriers, Telequalitas to launch VSaaS offering

Etihad Etisalat Company (Mobily) and Digital Barriers, along with their Saudi partner Advanced Communication Systems (Telequalitas), have signed a deal to launch a video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) offering across Saudi Arabia, on the sidelines of Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, Spain.
This first of its kind secure, zero-latency solution is critical to helping ensure continued safety and security across the country.
Cellular-based video solutions are in high demand, especially among law enforcement, defense and security agencies, but solutions available until now have been hampered by the limitations of real-time video streaming.
Now the launch of Mobily’s VSaaS range of solutions, based on Digital Barriers’ streaming technology, EdgeVis Live powered by TVI, will introduce “reliable, live, high-definition video streaming to the market for the first time."
The new VSaaS solution will include Digital Barriers’ government-accredited video analytics.
EdgeVis Live offers secure distribution of high-definition, real-time video from anywhere to anywhere, featuring end-to-end security, real world resilience and network optimization, that can stream usable live video using 60 percent less bandwidth than standard technologies. This “exceptionally efficient” use of available bandwidth enables EdgeVis Live to deliver significant capability benefits and material cost savings over competing technologies.
EdgeVis Live has already been sold into more than 30 countries, and counts some of the most prominent defense and security agencies in the world as its customers as well as an increasing number of commercial organizations.
Ahmed Farroukh, CEO Mobily, said: “We are happy to yet again be pioneers, in terms of bringing advance, innovative solutions to the Kingdom with support of industry leaders like Digital Barriers. Our business unit continues to utilize our strong infrastructure as a backbone for delivering state-of-the-art services to the customers, based on their requirements.”
