Idea

SDN offers a hybrid cloud-based AI platform, to transform the way businesses connect, extract, and share video footage

Current Status

Since our inception in 2018, we have sold approximately 10,000 units and generated $350,000 in revenue. We have partnership agreements in more than half a dozen countries, and our clients include names like DP World Fleets, Emirates Transport, Abu Dhabi School Police, and MSC.

Market

Businesses, corporations, schools, gated communities, commercial fleet,

The video surveillance industry market is projected to be worth $4.1 billion in the MENA region alone. With 180 million surveillance cameras having been shipped in 2019 alone, but 94% of clients having not developed AI and Deep learning analytics, we believe there is a specialized area in the market for SDN.

Problem or Opportunity

Clients (retail, schools/universities, gated communities, corps, facilities, enterprises, etc.) struggle to link multiple business sites and manage all surveillance cameras from any place at any time.
• Complicated & costly network configurations, remote access to DVR/NVR is almost impossible, NVR/DVR cannot support multiple sites, use of encrypted standards, software is from the 1990s, etc.
It is hard to search and filter through zettabytes of video data from thousands of cameras for business use.
• No mechanism to search through huge amounts of video footage and extract intelligent data insights
Limited ability to share video data and valuable information seamlessly between individuals & entities
• Nonexistent platform for account access privileges, all data is stored locally and not accessible remotely, etc.

Solution (product or service)

CONNECT

Enable all business departments to track and monitor their own specialized activities and operations at all times

Competitors
