The new system backbone not only demonstrates an improved, resilient performance but is also capable of alerting the IT team of any issues related to network connectivity and switch usages, allowing for prompt response and maintenance.
The new command center provides more capabilities to operators. Unlike their older analogue predecessors, new Axis HD cameras deliver more detailed video, which allows for identification of both people and vehicle license plates.
Advanced system analytics capabilities, powered by Citilog, enable automatic detection of strange objects and unusual behavior, such as a slow or stopped vehicle, pedestrians, and debris on the road. Cameras are programmed to pick up such incidents and feed them to designated displays for operators, who will, if necessary, notify an incident response team, the fire department, or the police.
EastLink has additional system upgrades scheduled to take place in the near future. Within the next 2 years, more cameras will be changed to new Axis IP cameras across the freeway and tunnels. Also, with the current designed capability to support 300 cameras, EastLink video surveillance system has a potential for further system growth.
