Proxim recently deployed its multi-point solutions for video surveillance along the tracks of the Tenerife Tram.
Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands located off the shore of the Western-African coast in the Atlantic ocean, created this tram service to provide its inhabitants with a cheap and fast way to reach every corner of the island.
Initiated by the local Tenerife Tram management team, the idea of a 24/7 video surveillance network became very tricky when it came to expenditures to overcome technical difficulties. Upon learning the challenges that Tenerife faced, Proxim provided a cost effective, scalable and reliable solution allowing a virtually unlimited amount of CCTV HD cameras, wirelessly connected and placed along the whole length of the tracks.
The tram tracks span over the whole island and the environment did not always help the installation of cameras (tunnels, highways, busy streets and city centers). This video provides an idea of the challenges that were faced and how Proxim’s large portfolio of products could adapt to all situations.
Proxim’s expertise helped create a safer travel environment for Tenerife’s tram users at the tracks but also linked the trains wirelessly to Proxim’s network, centralized at a real-time 24/7 surveillance & monitoring center.
