Colombian Port Deploys Wireless Network for Security, Efficiency
Thursday, April 11, 2019 | Comments

InfiNet Wireless completed an overhaul of a local port security system for Puerto de Mamonal, Cartagena, Colombia, as part of a project to showcase the diverse range of environments in which the company’s technology can operate.

In partnering with Colombian communications solutions provider, Maicrotel, InfiNet Wireless delivered a point-to-multipoint network with security cameras, cabinets, transmission radios, data security and Wi-Fi network transmission. The solution, which covered more than 240,000 square meters of storage area used for many types of merchandise, enhanced monitoring security of the port’s 310,000-square-meter territory.

Because of the sensitive nature of the port’s operations and the commercial value of the diverse range of goods handled on-site, a closed-circuit TV (CCTV) system was implemented to control the operations inside the port and to monitor the handling of merchandise.

“The port security staff have been highly impressed by the system; the wireless solution delivers all of the closed-circuit audio and video data from the port to the control center 24 hours a day,” said José Arsenio Galvis, head of Puerto de Mamonal. “We have had a timely response and the result of the implementation has been impeccable. It has allowed us to have a reliable control system, in addition to complying with the safety regulations that underpin the effective operation of the port terminal.”

The system gives control staff the tools to prevent theft and drug trafficking in the terminal. This system comprises radios, cameras and data that make it easy to monitor movements and the handling of merchandise from the control center.
