Mexican Port Receives Video Surveillance System from InfiNet
Monday, November 19, 2018 | Comments

InfiNet Wireless deployed a video surveillance system solution in Guaymas, a port in northwestern Mexico.

In recent years, the previous network infrastructure was severely affected by environmental factors such as hurricanes and corrosion because of the presence of sea salt in the air. The legacy system was not adequate to monitor the entire port area and needed a major overhaul.

"Since a strong and reliable CCTV (closed circuit TV) infrastructure is critical for the management of any port, a robust system was needed to allow it to constantly monitor the perimeter areas in order to avoid theft of materials, and drugs and weapon trafficking," said Carlos de la Madrid, regional business development manager for Latin America at InfiNet Wireless. “At the same time the safety and well-being of all employees of the port authority is paramount.”

After originally considering a fiber-optic solution, Guaymas port management eventually settled on a wireless solution as it was deemed more cost effective, operating reliably even in adverse weather conditions.

The project was implemented jointly with Global VoIP, a regional InfiNet partner in Mexico, and a system integrator that deployed the InfiMAN two-by-two point-to-multipoint (PtMP) solution. The experts installed a number of high-capacity base station sectors feeding data and video streams to a central control room.
