The Panama City Surveillance project is part of a national public safety system plan, the biggest challenge was to effectively deploy a high quality, full frame rate CCTV system on a public telecommunications system across multiple network platforms (MPLS, ADSL and Ethernet), which spread out through the entire country using hundreds of nodes, and operating under high data and voice traffic. CVBR ensured uniform usage of C&W's network bandwidth, and allowed them to properly estimate the network load at peak times. ThruLink enabled the VLANS (Virtual Local Area Networks) and VPNs (Virtual Private Networks), encapsulated the traffic and encrypted the data frames making the video streams virtually invisible to an outsider. The result, arguably, is simply the best video quality of any countrywide IP-Video system.
