Mexico City Surveillance Project Complete

Mexico City Surveillance Project Complete

13,720 cloud-managed cameras deployed in a cyber-secure city-wide surveillance program using 4G connectivity

Eagle Eye Networks has announced today one of the fastest completions of a large scale, fully integrated city-wide surveillance program, installing 13,720 cameras in four months. This project has been a large success for Mexico City C5, contributing to Mexico City's larger “Citizen Safety” mobile application. This mobile application facilitates content sharing for more effective neighborhood watch and a panic SOS button.

“Effective citywide surveillance is more than installing cameras in a few key locations, it’s about creating a platform that meets the unique needs of each municipality,” said Jaime Valdenebro, CEO of omnicloud.me. “In partnership with Eagle Eye Networks we leveraged the Eagle Eye Video API and SDK to customize a unique web application that is designed to integrate fixed, mobile body worn, and vehicle cameras into one interface, providing an unprecedented level of insight and awareness into our cities operations.”

4G connectivity with Eagle Eye Networks’ bandwidth optimization was used in order to facilitate this quick deployment, installing approximately 250 cameras per day at its peak. The cameras are all operational, remotely monitored, and providing safety and security to citizens today.

This fast-paced install occurred amidst the global supply chain challenges caused by COVID-19, however, Eagle Eye Networks’ strong partnership with both the reseller, Omnicloud.mx, and suppliers provided alternatives and solutions to keep the project on schedule.

Eagle Eye Networks solution was chosen because the Eagle Eye Cloud Video API Platform provides an open solution that allows integration of new technologies (AI, advanced analytics, search, license plate recognition), new suppliers, and new cameras at any time. Future and cybersecurity proofing the city’s investment and eliminating the headaches associated with managing large premise based data centers was crucial in their decision.

“When deploying a city-wide surveillance project, scalability, retention, and cellular transmission must be considered. Eagle Eye’s cloud video retention and massive on demand scalability make it ideal for large scale deployments,” said Dean Drako, CEO of Eagle Eye Networks. “To operate your own large data center system for video recording is expensive and challenging. With Eagle Eye’s subscription service we provide a more robust and lower cost answer for large scale deployments. Furthermore, our open platform provides a future proof solution, integrating AI, video analytics, and advanced search at the click of a mouse.”

“More than half of the world’s population resides in cities, creating an increased demand for smart, accurate insights to help streamline everyday operations including public safety, traffic flow management, infrastructure and transportation,” said Jeff Kessler, managing director of Imperial Capital and publisher of the Security Industry Annual Report. “Enormous amounts of data collection, aggregation, and storage are necessary to drive the deep analysis that is required to produce these smart insights. The only way to efficiently manage this data is to aggregate and analyze in the cloud,” said Jeff Kessler, Managing Director of the Security Industry Annual Report. “The Eagle Eye Cloud is a robust, scalable and cost-effective solution, purpose-built to support the data storage and analysis demands that city-wide deployments require.”
