Perimeter Security

An NVIDIA Preferred Partner

We are a Preferred Partner of NVIDIA - a full-stack accelerated computing company enabling digital transformation across trillion-dollar industries.

We are harnessing the power of NVIDIA's Jetson™ edge AI platform and NVIDIA CUDA®  to enhance our DAS modular asset monitoring capabilities with intense AI-enhanced edge computing, data processing and analytical capabilities.

Our DAS technology needs advanced algorithms and processing techniques to analyse changes in light patterns created when a fibre undergoes strain, and to identify and to categorise any disturbance. That’s where the latest computing platforms from NVIDIA come in.

The first challenge is processing up to 600MB of data per second - an exceptionally large volume of data! It would take too long to transfer that amount of data to the cloud for our customers to get the real-time insights they need and would also be too expensive. In order to detect with the sensitivity and to cover the distance of fibre being monitored, we require intense edge computing.

The data is processed using the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier™, along with CUDA, which delivers the computing power for the detection of the different types of events our customers are interested in, such as mechanical strikes on the ground, leaks from pipelines, footfall or fence climbing. Once we know the events, we have much lower data rates and are then able either to process them on the device, or in the cloud, to create alarms.

Reducing false positives of alarms is the second challenge. It’s a critical demand from our customers as it means they can reduce wasted resources, for example sending out security teams to investigate incidents. They want a system that will produce an alarm, at the right time.

We work closely with our customers to really understand the conditions for their application. For example, between five and 10 spade strikes might be considered normal activity that doesn’t warrant investigation, but anything more than this does. Knowing this information means we can fine-tune the device so we generate threat alarms that are correct.

The ultimate goal of our analytics is to get it right every time; new AI techniques help us to be even smarter. We have introduced new data flows for machine learning into our offering to improve detection accuracy.

We collect data, we label it, process it and create trained models that we test before we deploy to devices on live sites.

NVIDIA TensorRT™, a software development kit for high-performance deep learning inference, enables us to execute AI models efficiently and identify additional data needed to tune the models in a subsequent training cycle for constant improvement.
