Traffic Surveillance over Gigabit Ethernet Networks
Video Surveillance Systems for Seaports
In modern transportation systems, traffic surveillance plays an essential role in both environmental monitoring and traffic management. These tasks require the installation of more and more equipment, such as traffic controllers, speed detection, emergency IP phones, video cameras and traffic controllers. As transportation networks turn to Ethernet as the main transmission media for large volumes of data, video, and voice over one network, more bandwidth is required to ensure real-time monitoring and response.
As the transfer point between land and sea transportation, seaports play a critical role in the global economy. Harbors combine the major operations of large-scale shipment, storage, and transportation, and a seaport surveillance system must be deployed on a large scale as well, covering roads, ports, docks, bonded areas, container yards, and shipping areas. For this particular video surveillance system, different areas required different levels of access and control to the surveillance system.
