NEC signs deal for security solutions at the port of Açu, Brazil

NEC Corporation announced its contract to provide security solutions at the port of Açu, Brazil.

The Industrial Complex Açu Port consists of two terminals (T1 and T2) located in Sao Joao da Barra, in the north of Rio de Janeiro state, approximately 120 km from the Campos Basin area, where the vast majority of Brazil’s oil is produced.

NEC is deploying integrated systems that simultaneously manage a CCTV system, access control equipment, and NEC’s iPASOLINK-based outdoor wireless network for the industrial complex. The system is expected to be operational by October this year.

NEC Australia’s IT deal

Meanwhile, NEC Australia has been selected by the Department of Education and Training to develop, implement and host a new IT platform to improve the services provided to apprentices and their employers throughout Australia.

The multi-year IT contract will automate many of the manual and paper-based processes involved in administering apprenticeships in Australia and improve support for employers and apprentices as well as streamline payments that are currently made through the legacy Training and Youth Internet Management System (TYIMS).

The new hosted platform, based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM, will become the central store for contracts and other employer, apprentice and network provider information. Additionally, the new solution will allow apprenticeship network providers to engage with apprentices and employers while also tracking their progress.

The system will create up to 29,000 contracts per month, and support approximately 100 different payment types, as well as process up to 135,000 transactions per month. AAMS will replace TYIMS on 1 July 2016and will support the recently launched Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN), said NEC.
