  • SIEMENS VDR (Voice and Data Recording) was originally the department within ICM (Information and Communinication Networks) that provided Lawful Intercepting, Monitoring and Recording Technology for Telecommunication. This business unit first merged into Nokia/Siemens Network (NSN) and was later separated from NSN to a company called TROVICOR due to reputational reasons after it became public knowledgte that the Iranian government had used Nokia / Siemens Monitoring Technology to track down protesters who got targetted through the system, imprisoned and tortured.

Lawful Interception (Monitoring Center, Intelligence Platform)

  • Challenge

Governments have a mandate to protect the innocent and prosecute the offender, to foster the well-being of law-abiding citizens, to secure peace and prosperity and to safeguard the rule of law.

Nonetheless, judging from terrorist attacks in the recent past, criminal groups have established global links which enable them to carry out their activities and continue to take advantage of the blessings of technological progress. They exploit open borders which make trafficking easy. And they have the financial resources to buy the latest digital communications technology with which they can coordinate their worldwide activities and escape detection. Therefore it is essential to do everything to secure peace and prosperity among individuals, families and nations. Good governance takes advantage of technological progress to achieve this aim.

Authorized groups need to have direct access to communications between suspects, whether it is individuals, groups or organizations. Only then can they take appropriate action, detect, prevent and anticipate crimes and guarantee peace and security.

Technological progress has changed our world fundamentally. Modern telecommunications networks are highly complex and extremely difficult to control: fiber-optic cables, radio waves and satellites encircle the globe and provide a host of transmission options for analog and digital signals. Because of the rapid increase and the ubiquitous use of IP and the Internet, the future will be characterized by even greater mobility and increased use of data communications. Therefore, communications monitoring requires highly sophisticated, multi-level voice and data recordings.

Worldwide, Siemens occupies a unique position since it is the only supplier of telecommunications networks which provides its own Monitoring Center with the capability to incorporate all other network vendors. Its design permits integration within all telecommunications networks which use any type of modern standardized equipment compatible with ETSI recommendation (e.g. Siemens, Ericsson, Alcatel, Nokia, Nortel, Lucent, Huawei).

With the Monitoring Center by Siemens, customers can play safe and yet always stay in the lead by opting for direct access to innovation worldwide and the organizational, financial, logistical and infrastructural strength of a global player.

The Monitoring Center by Siemens is the ideal monitoring tool for current technologies and next-generation communications of all types.

Because of its unique background, Siemens VDR not only keeps pace with the latest developments but also enables authorized groups to remain one step ahead.

  • Intelligence Platform

One Platform to integrate and analyse any information from any source to support tasks in the fields of

- Intelligent Analyses

- Case Management

- Forensics

The problem we face today is not about data collection; it is about data analysis. It is not about obtaining and accessing data, but about connecting the dots, putting information in context and drawing conclusions about its implications. The key factor that may transform information into actionable intelligence is analysis.

With the help of the Siemens Intelligence Platform, analysts may find meaning amongst enormous reams of irrelevant data. The Intelligence Platform is a means to organize disparate pieces of information for the Law Enforcement and Security Agencies and decision makers to act upon them.

The Siemens Intelligence Platform is the intelligent analytical tool for analysts who assist decision makers to fulfill their mandate: to identify and predict trends, patterns or problem areas requiring action.
