CHELMSFORD, Mass.--Network video manufacturer Axis Communications announced that it would install 100 AXIS 241S video servers in nine of the largest ferry terminals in Southern Alaska, along the Alaska Marine Highway System.
The project is funded by the Department of Homeland Security. The installation is underway and expected to be completed by the end of September.
The video servers enable security officials to monitor the facilities, surrounding waters and vehicle- and passenger traffic via the Internet or remotely via the Internet. When the terminals are closed, the system can be remotely accessed and alerts are sent distributed to authorized personal or something when unusual motion is detected.
The AMHS is part of the Alaska Department of Transportation. Opened in 1963, the AMHS has carried approximately 400,000 passengers and 100,000 vehicles per year over the last decade.
