AxxonSoft powers security monitoring for Pan-American Highway

The Pan-American Highway is the world's longest motorable road, connecting the U.S. and Canada with Latin America. Extending from the North Slope of Alaska to the southern tip of South America, the highway extends approximately 30,000 miles (48,000 kilometers) greater than the circumference of the earth. Construction started in 1923 and, in some stretches, continues to this day. This is a massive project to be sure. But it is also a massive maintenance task. Imagine trying to service and secure such a highway without the help of video surveillance! This was the situation faced by Panavial when the company decided to turn to AxxonSoft for Intellect, physical security information management software that met all of their security needs and more.

Situation and solution

The Pan-American Highway is huge. Every year, 4 million vehicles pass through nine tollbooths on Panavial-operated roads.

In total, 72 cameras were installed for surveillance and recording at nine tollbooths, supported by 8 servers, 72 point-of-sale channels, and 16 remote clients. A central monitoring hub was created for system management and administration. Installation and setup were performed by Telectrnica.
