Core technologies that will solve crime Edit
- RS485/["RS485"] connected to InfraRedLeds for an RS485 based alarm system for SecuringPerimeter.
- FreeSpaceOptics around which DsLam, TelephoneNetworkRollout, MeshNetworking, SoftwareDefinedRadio and illegal WiMax is integrated.
- ImageProcessing on CctvCameras that can see up to 1km in the dark via high-power InfraRedLeds.
- PatrolVehicle patrolling RegionalZones
- UAV - UnmannedAerialVehicles.
- Robots patrolling the street via MeshNetworking armed with PepperBall - StreetSurveillance
Criminals have infiltrated estates and open streets Edit
Criminals operate from houses inside estates and open streets. They jump over the walls of residents from one house to the next. Each home must have a RS485 based alarm system. Place multiple ConfiguringAlarmSystem outdoor PIR and InfraRedLeds outside. See WallSecurity. The outdoor alarm's signal connects with the GuardRoom. Should an intruder jump over a wall or try to escape one can trace his movements and send a real-time alert to the nearby homes that an intruder is heading their way. Lets presume everybody in the street goes to bed at 10p.m. and thus no outdoor PIR or InfraRedLeds should trigger. On any outdoor PIR triggering the GuardRoom will be alerted in real-time via the DsLam, MeshNetworking or GpsAndGprs network and be able to track an intruder's movements as he moves from wall to wall. Depending on the level of cooperation of residents each home is alerted in real-time that a specific garden has been intruded unto. A UnmannedAerialVehicles dispatched to the intrusion point will virtually eliminate all crime.
Network centric counter insurgency measures Edit
We have a massive miss allocation of capital towards Telkom and inefficient security services. The money should rather be used for TelephoneNetworkRollout networks to establish ourselves as a Telkom. This will boost our property value and stop the crime problem via CctvCameras and ZoneMinder networks and enable us to negotiate over the cost of bandwidth. Security needs a combined effort approach. Each resident is in direct communication with every other house as far as the telephone network extends. When you press your panic button, every single house or base will know you are in distress instantly relayed over the Dslam network - in essence a mini http://www.eblockwatch.co.za network. Eblockwatch uses cellphones which weren't really designed to be used as a panic button. To send panic signals, panic buttons must be used , sending a signal using RadioModems to a receiver connected to the serial port of the PC - connected to the ADSL modem. The ADSL modem interfaces with the community DsLam. To win the war on the insurgency we need to engage in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Centric_Warfare - where each person is in 24hour contact with a communications network. Eblockwatch is an example of this - using SMS cell networks. The same concept can be extended to DsLam, Gprs and MeshNetworking] creating thousands of decentralized mini-Eblockwatch networks - using a different user interface. Each VDLS2 modem can see every single camera connected to the DsLam.
Both the regional network coordinator and the residents thus have access to all the street [[CctvCameras] in a region creating: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Situational_awareness. The security guards watching the streets from a the control room can themselves be watched - WhoWatchesTheOperator. The Regional leader has the cell number of the SAPS member and will coordinate the SAPS response to an insurgent attack. Coordinating the financing of vehicles, ThermalImagingCameras, CctvCameras can only efficiently be done if all the houses have UnlimitedBandwidth between each house. Everybody must be able to reach any other house without going through a Telkom centralised network. By advertising to the criminals that every house is connected via a DsLam and proving that the residents are streaming their perimeters and streets to a central base, the criminals would avoid such a block of houses - AdvertiseSecurityNetwork. With our TelephoneNetworkRollout lines of communication established between houses we will be able to establish a central command and control structure to coordinate with council, SAPS, security companies and the government.
Security measures are reactive instead of preventative Edit
Security measures in SA are largely reactive instead of preventative. There was a story recently in the paper about a person who had been robbed at his house with a security guard present. Because our gun laws are so draconian , guards are very reluctant to shoot first. Our [[SecurityCompanyies have also been deeply infiltrated by organised crime. Presently to get anything organised one has to physically walk from house to house and get each person's number. Then you have to contact each person individually through the Vodacom/Telkom centralised network. Getting the funding in this manner for a patrol vehicle, ThermalImagingCameras is a daunting task. E-mail as a communications medium has been compromised through spam and thus people are reluctant to give their e-mail address. Some residences have a 24hour guard at a cost of R36000/year. Compare that amount to building a street Telkom of 1km for R55000 as explained at TelephoneNetworkCosts. If that person could change his thinking and rather spend that money on CctvCameras and TelephoneNetworkRollout - protecting everybody a change for the better will result. If everybody is protected then you protect yourself in the process.
Protect everybody and protect yourself Edit
Our whole approach to the terrorist insurgency is wrong. We should all club together and allow a TelephoneNetworkRollout , illegal WiMax and legal MeshNetworking combination to cross our boundaries. Every house should be able to video stream to any other place on the network. A HybridMeshAndTelephone allows everybody to talk to everybody else. These lines of communications will now allow us to discuss where what CctvCameras will be installed utilising the UnlimitedBandwidth. We can't expect ordinary citizens to become parttime security guards. What we need is CctvCameras on the street not everybody in a constant state of situational awareness - South Africa is not Iraq. Building your own telephone exchange won't be an eternal expense where you don't know what your are getting for your money like with security companies. The public is exhausted and exasperated with the crime problem because they are constantly told about solutions that simply won't work. The will firstly save each house thousands in inflated Internet fees and thus subsidize CctvCameras. By building your own telephone exchange you automatically have the infrastructure to implement a "buurtwag" or buddy system without harrassing anybody in the process. The street ISP or network administrator will coordinate all such efforts without the need for endless meetings at a physical location or irritating people by pushing letters through their gates. Our residential areas are low intensity conflict zones. What is incredable is for the unwilling soldiers in South Africa to refuse to establish their lines of communication. A psycosis of fear, terror, hopelessness and despondency has gripped the nation. Some are pushing wheelbarrows around the Union Building - everything but actually solving the problem. The first thing you do in a conflict zone is to establish your lines of communication, which is what http://www.beeld.co.za don't want you to do as explained under LegalPerspective. Crookes laugh at CctvCameras they see on peoples gates. They know that there is no DsLam bandwidth and thus no guard could possibly monitor all those cameras from a central location.
Seperate the data from the cameras and operators Edit
Cue incident and local councils have strong-armed businesses into paying for CCTV cameras and a data network to watch CBDs. We need to separate the network from the cameras and the operators. We don't need to duplicate communication lines if everything runs on the IP protocol. With UnlimitedBandwidth anybody and everybody can setup a CctvCameras network on any of multiple DrillBoxes.
* The UnlimitedBandwidth network created by FreeSpaceOptics and TelephoneNetworkRollout must be owned by everybody. * Anybody should be able to connect CctvCameras to any DrillBoxes on the network. * Any number of DrillBoxes are installed to form wirelessMeshNetworking hotsposts. * These hotspots allows Wi-Fi CellphoneExchanges * Cue Incident becomes just one of many CCTV operators. * ImageProcessing is used for automated behavior analysis.
The CCTV operator must not control the network. Cue Incident and Nelspruit council for example a few years ago decreed to the CBD businesses that they must pay a certain amount per month. Since these businesses didn't have the technical knowledge concerning a TelephoneNetworkRollout they had no idea what they were paying for. Breaking up the costs of a CCTV service into its three components is the first thing to do. From a business perspective Cue Incident would want to conflate the network, cameras and operators all into one bundled package.
Divide Pretoria up into 150 zones Edit
There are 40000 houses in Pretoria. Each street CentralOffice is linked via Fiber to the next CentralOffice. The first step is to link 6 streets CentralOffice with single-mode fiber for a 1km distance. Thus 256houses in a 1x1km block. Each street is patrolled by remote controlled electric golf carts - StreetSurveillance. The priority is getting these 1x1km RegionalZones established. Once a zone has it's bandwidth it can purchase a PatrolVehicle,dogs, ThermalImagingCameras and UnmannedAerialVehicles. The dogs will provide back-up to the SAPS and security guards. 40000/256 = 156. Thus Pretoria will have 156 RegionalZones over 13sqr/km each with it's own coordinator. These zones CentralOffice will gradually interconnect via fiber to eventually cover the whole of Pretoria. The RegionalZones coordinators have the direct cell number of an SAPS captain and will coordinate an appropriate response with the SAPS. You won't ever have to phone the police directly - you phone a coordinator instead. Once the 46megs DsLam bandwidth is available to each house people will channel their "pannic button" money into ZoneMinder boxes. The police van in range of a 2.4ghz MeshNetworking tower he will see instantly via the DHCP,DhCp lease from the ADSL modem what this ZoneMinder box sees. Each SAPS vehicle will have GpsAndGprs. The RegionalZones are patrolled by ideally at least one UnmannedAerialVehicles. The RegionalZones operator manning the CctvCameras liases with the PatrolVehicle, SAPS and UnmannedAerialVehicles , TelephoneNetworkRollout and a FrontingCompany is the magic that will make this integration possible. The community telephone pole enables us to pool our resources in a coordinated fashion - protecting everybody and not have the present situation where after pressing the "panic button" the guard never arrives because if he shoots the robber he will go to jail.
Leverage the SAPS Edit
Reasons why South Africa must build their own telephone exchanges Edit
- RISE IN PROPERTY VALUE: The property values of any community either a closed villages or open streets that have their own telephone exchange are considerably higher than properties where people refuse to communicate with one another.
- INTERNET: The IP protocol can be used to stream television content and Internet via SateLlite.
- GAMES: South-Korea has one of the largest gaming communities in the world due to their high available bandwidth.
- CCTV TO STOP THE CRIME:Instead of complaining about the crime and Telkom problem you should do something about it.
It allows us to focus on making a positive contribution to South Africa instead of engaging in the hopelessness, despair and anger that the news media like http://www.beeld.co.za are directly responsible for fueling as explained under LegalPerspective
