YEHUD, Israel, August 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Magal S3, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAGS) announced today that it signed a framework agreement to supply a safe city turnkey solution for the city of Holon in Israel. The project will be implemented over a five-year timeframe and, if fully implemented, the scope will reach $5 million. The portion to be delivered in 2016 is not material.

Magal will supply a fully integrated solution including: an advanced command and control center based on its Fortis4G management system, hundreds of surveillance cameras, automated access and alarm system for municipal buildings, public address system, intercom, and emergency buttons for public areas.

Magal will deploy a wide area network over fibers and wireless, supported by Magal's Tungsten - an outdoor switch with built-in cyber security for the whole network.

Saar Koursh, CEO of Magal S3, commented: "I am happy that we were chosen to secure the safety and the lifestyle of Holon's citizens. Urbanization brings many new security challenges and opportunities; naturally, the acquisition of Aimetis with its first class Video Management System (VMS) with built in video analytics, strengthens our position in this emerging market. This year Aimetis' Symphony was already selected for a safe city project within Brazil."
