MIPS 2015 presents Russian companies manufacturing and exporting security systems

MIPS, the 21st international exhibition on protection, security and fire safety is due to take place in pavilion 75 of Moscow’s VDNKh from 13 — 16 April 2015. The organiser of the exhibition is ITE Group, the leader of the Russian exhibition services market.

Over the past 20 years, MIPS has established itself as an authority among professionals of this industry. In his welcome to exhibitors and visitors, Viktor Zolotov, First Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, noted that MIPS “uses its well-deserved reputation among professionals and manufacturers of special machinery and equipment as one of the best trade exhibitions and congress projects in Russia and the CIS. This is confirmed by the steady increase in the number of Russian and foreign exhibitors, as well as official guests and visitors.”

According to experts, despite the slowing rate of development of the Russian economy in general, over the coming years the security market is expected to grow. MIPS serves to confirm these trends — this year, the exhibition space is kept in its entirety, with over 100 new companies exhibiting.

Over 430 companies from 22 countries will exhibit at MIPS 2015, a third of which are international manufacturers, and around 300 companies are Russian. The exhibitors will present their advanced technical developments in the following sections:

  • CCTV and video surveillance
  • Fire-safety, rescue equipment, and occupational health and safety
  • Integrated security systems
  • Perimeter protection

The exhibition will feature national stands from China and Taiwan.

Today, experts cite the main trend in the security market as the intellectualisation and integration of security systems. Leading manufacturers of video surveillance systems, security and telecommunications are developing to cater to incorporating the concepts of smart cities and buildings and transport systems interconnected through cloud services and online interfaces. By 2020, experts predict that the number of devices connected to the internet could reach 50 billion.

MIPS will focus on security systems used in implementing smart city projects, the creation of a single urban information and communication space, which integrates ICT solutions for transport, energy, utilities, physical infrastructure, management and public safety. Many experts predict that by 2025 the number of smart cities will grow by four times and will reach 88 (in 2013 there were 20). This process will stimulate joint activity between city administrations and commercial businesses. In 2013, the volume of global investments in the development of smart cities reached $1 million, and by 2025, it is thought that the size of investments will reach $12 million.

Leading Russian and international companies will present their developments for creating smart and safe cities including: Axis Communications, Avigilon Corporation, HID Global, ITV | AxxonSoft, Grand Prix, ISS and others.

The topic of import substitution for security equipment will be widely covered at MIPS. In 2013, the resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation of 24 December 2013 No. 1224 was introduced ‘On establishing a ban and restrictions on importing goods originating in foreign countries, work (services), provided by foreign persons for buying goods, work (services) for national defence and security of the state". Because of this, a problem arose in the security market choosing national prototypes from imported equipment.

MIPS will present a range of companies involved in the import substitution programme: Argus Security, Ervist, Spetsavtomatika, and Spektron.

In January 2015, Ervist, the leading supplier of products and security solutions on the Russian market working in extreme (explosive and high-pressure) conditions, and Spektron successfully completed one of the first projects in the import substitution programme in the security industry. The project involved installing fire safety equipment in a hazardous industrial facility on the Siberian Shelf. Visitors to MIPS can get further information on this and other equipment from the company’s specialists.

A number of Russian companies exhibiting at MIPS export to other countries. These are companies with impeccable business reputations: Argus Security, Stilsoft, Istochnik+, Bolid, and ITV. The Strelets radio systems manufacturer, Argus Security, is ranked among the top 30 developing Russian high-tech companies by TekhUspekh 2014. Its developments are highly appreciated by the President of Russia, and by both Russian and international customers. Strelets has been successfully exported to many countries and is used at Buckingham Palace, the Belgium Royal Theatre, Oxford and Cambridge Universities, the tents of the Cirque du Soleil and the Hungarian Academy of Science.

MIPS 2015’s general partner will once again be Beward, the Russian developer and manufacturer of IP video cameras.
