Cancun Selects Redline To Wirelessly Connect City-Wide Public Safety System

Highly secure Redline radios deliver wireless video surveillance for tourist safety

Redline Communications Group Inc. (“Redline”), a leading provider of specialized broadband wireless solutions for industrial machine-to-machine applications (“M2M”), has announced that they have received a contract to expand a wireless video surveillance network in the City of Cancún, México.  Redline outdoor broadband wireless equipment will provide M2M connectivity between cameras located throughout the city and the central automated monitoring center.

The City of Cancún was developed with tourism in mind.  Drawing over five million tourists a year, visitor safety and well-being is a top priority for local government and to enhance public safety, improve police response time and enable better crime analysis, the City’s existing video surveillance system is being expanded to provide greater coverage. The City required the flexibility to place cameras anywhere they were needed, and in most cases running wires to desired camera locations was not feasible. The City decided upon wireless technology to provide round-the-clock connectivity between the radios and the central monitoring location.  They required secure, high-quality, reliable equipment and it was equally important the cameras and wireless devices not be overly visible or intrusive in tourist locations.

After first choosing Redline’s AN-80i radio platform to provide wireless connectivity for the first phase of this project in March 2010, the City of Cancún has once again selected Redline to power the expansion of their video surveillance system, this time with Redline’s RDL-3000 radio platform.  Operating in the 4.9 GHz public safety band, Redline radios have the proven security, reliability and capacity to wirelessly connect a large network of video surveillance cameras. Their excellent non-line-of-sight capability, the ability of the equipment to deliver video to a central control center even if the radio antenna signal is blocked by buildings or trees, allowed them to be easily installed virtually anywhere the City needed.  It also permitted the use of smaller antennas, which were both unobtrusive and more economical.

“We are extremely satisfied with the performance of Redline’s wireless solution,” said Jerry Elizondo, Telecommunications Sub Director for the Ministry of Public Safety in the City of Cancún. “Thanks to Redline we have a fully operational video surveillance network that isn’t an eyesore for our tourists. This system is helping keep our city safe by giving us eyes on the street.”

As a result of the Redline’s video surveillance solution, the City of Cancún now has a surveillance system that covers a large area while blending in well with the landscape. With cameras being installed across the entire city, public safety can improve dramatically for Cancún’s citizens and tourists alike.
