The new system is operated on an Ethernet backbone, with 35 unmanaged AMG switches AMG, the British manufacturer of CCTV transmission solutions and sophisticated 5 Megapixel cameras, has completed a new sophisticated toll management transmission solution on Solapur Highway, for ITNL in India. ITNL is using the solution to monitor two Toll Plazas with a total of 20 Lanes with 24 Booths – 4 of which have reversible lanes. The project covers a road stretch of 105 kilometres, with 49 kilometres between the Toll Plazas. According to ITNL, the new system encompasses 132 cameras of which 126 are fixed cameras and 6 are PTZs. Other hardware integrated into the solution includes Lane Controllers, AVC Controllers, and RFID Readers. The system is operated on an Ethernet backbone, with 35 unmanaged AMG switches, and incorporates vehicle detection and enforcement solutions along with access control equipment. A Toll Plaza typically lies in an environment where adverse conditions are present. This was a decisive factor in ITNL’s decision to select the AMG Ethernet switches for the new system. The ruggedness and small form factor, as well as the capability to perform well in adverse climate conditions with extreme heat and dust means that the AMG switches provides significant advantage over other alternatives. According to ITNL, another advantage is that the AMG transmission solution can interface with equipment from any given third party manufacturer. This facilitates the integration of surveillance and monitoring equipment with the Toll Management Solution. ITNL also commented on the support given by AMG during pre-sales, post-sales and subsequent technical support, deeming the service as ‘excellent’. Sara Bullock, International Sales Director at AMG Systems, says, “AMG has supplied a large number of transmission solutions for well over 1, 000 km of highways traffic management solutions in India. We’re extremely pleased that ITNL decided to use our switches for this new project on the Pune - Solapur Highway.”
AMG, the British manufacturer of CCTV transmission solutions and sophisticated 5 Megapixel cameras, and Tecton, a leading designer, developer and manufacturer of CCTV solutions, announces that Tecton has integrated AMG’s Wonderbox - a series of ruggedised Ethernet switches - with Tecton’s Servalan Network Video Recorder, the Mate stand-alone solution for single camera recording, as well as with Liberator – Tecton’s Video Evidence Recorder for combined recording of IP and analogue cameras. Chris Hall, MD and founder of Tecton, says “The Wonderbox integrates seamlessly into our technology. The demand for integration was prompted by a highways project where the Wonderbox was part of the core backbone transmission solution. All we had to do was connect it, point to the correct IP address, and we were up and running with the recording of the footage. Tecton’s technology is widely used in government and transport surveillance solutions. We have a number of existing large scale projects in the rail sector and I can easily envisage a number of applications where the Wonderbox will ease the upgrade of legacy solutions to include IP cameras in a hybrid technology solution. Not only that, it will providing savings for the customers, as the existing infrastructure can be upgraded without the need for third party connectivity products.” Sara Bullock, Sales & Marketing Director of AMG Group, says, “We are delighted with Tecton’s decision to facilitate complete integration with their DVR and NVR range. Tecton is renowned for their ruggedised and highly complex solutions for Critical National Infrastructure, Government, Transport and Rail solutions. With the Wonderbox we now have an approach that allows you to retain existing analogue equipment alongside new ‘IP’ cameras/devices within the same network, dramatically reducing infrastructure requirements and capital expenditure on hardware for new systems. With the integration with AMG’s Wonderbox range, another step has been taken in bridging the IP-analogue gap, particularly in the transport sector.”
