TURKU, Finland – IRIS certification recognizes Teleste's compliance in providing high standard video surveillance solutions that are specified for the needs of the railway industry.

Teleste, an international technology group specialised in broadband video and data communication systems and services, today announces that it has been awarded the International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS) certification from Loyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA). The globally recognized certification has been granted to Teleste in March 2014 and it proves Teleste's high standards in developing, designing and manufacturing video surveillance solutions that meet the requirements of the railway industry.

IRIS is a unique standard that complements the international ISO 9001 quality standard with specific characteristics for the rail industry. Its main objective is to improve quality in the rail sector by the reduction of effort and costs. IRIS is promoted by UNIFE (Association of the European Rail Industry) and supported by operators, system integrators and equipment manufacturers. Today, IRIS sets the standard for global rail business requests.

Teleste's rail-specific video surveillance solutions are part of an end-to-end rail solution which integrates on-board and wayside solutions under a single umbrella including also a complete set of Passenger Information Systems (PIS). The video surveillance solution consists of an IP based controlled video management system with multi-level integration and unlimited scalability. Implementation of this IRIS-compliant management system further enhances Teleste's overall capabilities to meet customers' future requirements and serve their long-term projects.

"Receiving the IRIS certification is a key recognition of the high quality video surveillance solutions that Teleste provides for Rail operators. By achieving the standard, we are confident that we will be able to further strengthen our presence as an international provider who can meet industry-specific requirements and offer solutions that benefit our customer for years to come," said Johan Slotte, Deputy CEO of Teleste Corporation.
