Eagle Eye Networks and an integration partner have supplied and installed 13,550 4G cloud cameras in Mexico City in just 4 months.

The installation team was deploying approximately 250 cameras per day at peak with cameras now all operational, remotely monitored and providing safety and security to the public. 4G connectivity with Eagle Eye Networks’ bandwidth optimization was utilized in order to facilitate the quick deployment, which the company said is one of the fastest project completions of its kind.

“In the future 4G and 5G technology will likely be a go-to solution for large-scale distributed surveillance projects,” said Dean Drako, CEO of Eagle Eye Networks. “4G and 5G can save a lot of time and money on installation.”

The fast-paced install occurred amid the global supply chain challenges caused by COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, however, Eagle Eye Networks said its strong partnership with reseller and suppliers kept the project on schedule.

The company said its 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-proofing the city’s investment and eliminating the headaches associated with managing large data centres was crucial in its decision.

“When deploying a citywide surveillance project, scalability, retention, and cellular transmission must be considered,” Drako said. “Eagle Eye’s Cloud video retention and massive on demand scalability make it ideal for large scale deployments.

“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.”
