Boston Marathon monitored by Axis IP cameras on Strix wireless mesh network
Last week's Boston Marathon was not only a showcase for world-class runners, it also offered up a great opportunity for wireless IP surveillance to work its magic. This year's marathon attracted over 20,000 runners and upwards of one million spectators. In order to help provide event and crowd control, and to protect the city from potential threats during this large event, a temporary, wireless video surveillance system was deployed and linked to state and local public safety agencies. The surveillance solution included Axis PTZ network cameras operating across an Integrated Wireless Surveillance System powered by Strix Systems Edge wireless mesh technology.
Law enforcement and public safety officials were able to monitor the cameras remotely. Multiple cameras were viewable in real-time, and recorded footage was also available on-demand. Fixed and mobile command centers had full access to the feeds, as did local and state public safety agencies. Because the system was operating across a wireless mesh network, installation, deployment, and operation was a quick and easy process.
