Tel Aviv, July 28, 2020 – RAD, the industry pioneer in Industrial IoT (IIoT) and Edge Computing solutions, today announced that South Africa’s MetroFibre has selected its SecFlow and PowerFlow platforms as the focal points of the Metro-I turnkey smart security solution.
Metro-I is a unique new offering of a smart security solution deployed in private residential estates, residential and commercial complexes and gated communities managed by resident associations. Each Metro-I smart pole is equipped with RAD’s SecFlow and/or PowerFlow IIoT Gateways with Edge Computing and Ruggedized Switches that are used to enable secured connectivity and smarter, tech-based response from one central location. The SecFlow and PowerFlow bring together connectivity and security solutions, including intercom and visitor management platforms, access control, CCTV and IoT devices, as well as license plate recognition systems and panic buttons, among others. RAD’s devices securely carry the data from these devices to the control room, to allow real-time response, monitoring and analytics.
