Singapore's LTA (Land Transport Authority) is responsible for Singapore's highways, roadways and railways. It was decided to find a solution that would allow the leased lines within the intelligent transport system to be replaced by a more cost-effective alternative. Without any customization of the encoders, it meant that dedicated leased lines would still be required for every video stream. The solution was to install a KBC Standard capacity ThruLink (THLK-S) at each camera and then High Capacity ThruLinks (THLK-HC) at the control centre. KBC's ThruLink allowed the IP system to operate across the public broadband network and the LTA dramatically lowered their ongoing communication costs by removing leased lines.
