Mexican State Deploys Public-Safety Monitoring Solution
Wednesday, February 26, 2020 | Comments

Infinet Wireless installed a new high-capacity wireless infrastructure to improve public safety and expand its geographical coverage in the Zacatecas state, located in north-central Mexico.

Infinet Wireless provided connectivity to about 150 locations in numerous municipalities in the state, further enabling the local authorities and law enforcement agencies to provide dynamic monitoring of the streets and neighborhoods, emergency care wherever it is needed, enhanced citizen protection, and connecting the REPUVE public register of vehicles with all relevant command-and-control centers.

Infinet Wireless was selected to deliver the project following a decision from the Executive Secretary of the State Public Security System (SESESP), which is responsible for citizen safety and security in the entire state, with the main objective being a major technological overhaul and renewal.

“SESESP required a solution which could address the limitations of the legacy wireless platform we had, make more efficient use of the limited radio spectrum available, mitigate radio interference generated by third-party and rogue base stations, as well as significantly improve the reliability of our camera feeds even in the highest density locations,” said Jaime Francisco Flores Medina, executive secretary of SESESP of Zacatecas state. “These were critical criteria for SESESP, and Infinet Wireless was able to provide a reliable solution which met and exceeded our expectations, as well provide much easier installation and maintenance.”

One of SESESP’s key challenges was to ensure that its subsidiary, The Center for Integral Coordination, Control, Command and Communications (C5), could have access to dynamic and comprehensive visibility at the street level, enabling quick decision-making on all matters related to public safety, medical emergencies, the environment, civil protection, fluidity of road traffic and the provision of various services to the community at large. Gathering and sharing real-time information from a multitude of sources presented a real challenge, especially as the collected information needed to be subsequently distributed to various monitoring and control centers spread across the state.

Infinet Wireless designed and implemented the network with point-to-multipoint (P2MP) and point-to-point (P2P) products. The new platform provided the necessary bandwidth and capacity, with room for future growth, for crucial systems all aimed at improving people's lives, ensuring their security wherever they are and significantly preventing and ultimately reducing crimes of all types. SESESP is now able to rapidly gather all relevant information from throughout the state, then share it with various authorities to take preventive actions, as well as remedial ones whenever necessary.

Infinet Wireless completed the project with the help of local partner Compulogic, which has operated in Zacatecas for more than 25 years delivering communications and IT projects in various regions.
