August 2020 Industry News
Working with Juniper Networks, AMG Systems helped digitize the traffic monitoring system for the hard shoulder bus lanes on two main highways and motorways in Belfast, Ireland. As part of a Northern Ireland Department for Infrastructure extension project on the M1 and M2 motorways, the installed IP-based surveillance system will transmit high-grade images in real-time back to the city’s Traffic Information and Control Centre (TICC) and its traffic management teams, all aimed at improving the motorways’ efficiency, security, and reliabilty. AMG connected the newly upgraded IP cameras onto the existing fiber network and the new monitoring equipment, providing the TICC with nine switches on the M1 fiber network, 15 switches for the M2, and four switches at the TICC control room.
