Infinet Wireless has installed a new high-capacity wireless infrastructure to improve public safety and expand its geographical coverage in Mexico’s Zacatecas state.
The Executive Secretary of the State Public Security System (SESESP) selected Infinet Wireless to deliver the project. The SESESP is responsible for citizen safety and security in the state, with the main objective being a major technological overhaul and renewal to ensure the safety of residents and visitors to the region.
Infinet Wireless has provided connectivity to around 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 neighbourhoods, emergency care wherever it is needed, enhanced citizen protection, and connecting the REPUVE public register of vehicles with all relevant command and control centres.
“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 the SESESP of Zacatecas state.
One of the key challenges faced by SESESP 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 challenge, as the collected information needed to be subsequently distributed to various monitoring and control centres spread across the state.
Infinet Wireless designed and implemented the network based on its R5000 product family, which includes Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) solutions as well as Point-to-Point (P2P) ones. The new platform provided the necessary bandwidth and capacity, with room for future growth, for crucial systems aimed at ensuring security.
Ultimately, SESESP is now able to rapidly gather all relevant information from all corners of the state, then share it with various authorities in order to take preventive actions as well as remedial ones whenever necessary.
