DfT grants Manufacturer Certification to hosted traffic enforcement system

A new fully-hosted civil and traffic enforcement system has gained Manufacturer Certification from the Department for Transport (DfT). This is the UK’s first civil enforcement system that does not require any hardware or software to be installed on a customer’s premises, making it significantly easier for councils and other local authorities to rapidly deploy the latest unattended digital CCTV enforcement systems.

The hosted platform from Videalert eliminates the need for councils to procure and deploy any equipment within their IT infrastructures or install software on local PCs for evidence pack review. The company’s hosted cloud-based system enables councils to speed up the deployment of systems to enforce the full range of moving traffic offences, including banned turns, yellow box junctions, and bus lanes. It also allows the enforcement of parking offences on ‘Keep Clear’ zones outside schools, one of the exemptions detailed in the UK government’s recent Deregulation Bill, without needing to undertake a major IT infrastructure project.

As part of the hosted system, CCTV enforcement equipment can be installed for video processing at the network edge using Videalert’s WAN 3G/4G cellular RDS units, known as the ‘PC up a pole’. The hosted servers within the company’s virtual server farm retrieve evidence packs from the RDS units, allowing trained council operators to access and review them using standard internet browsers, before confirmed offences are transmitted to the back office PCN (penalty charge notice) system. Each council has a dedicated virtual server, so security and integrity is fully guaranteed, with cloud storage used for backup.

“This new solution requires no ICT involvement from councils, and can be delivered through a variety of flexible commercial models,” explained Tim Daniels, Videalert’s sales and marketing director.

“It enables councils to respond rapidly to operational and strategic requests for deployments over both the short and long-term. Our first customer will be going live with the new system shortly. Outsourcing to a hosted enforcement environment enables councils to improve efficiency, increase income and maintain greater control over costs. As well as reducing infrastructure and software costs, our hosted service also eliminates the potential support issues that often occur when sharing IT resources with other council departments.”
