Anti-Terror Projects
Case Studies
cameras from Bosch as part of its most recent
modernization efforts that replaced analog
roadside cameras used to monitor traffic flow
and conditions. Installed on 50- to 80-foot
poles along the turnpike, the cameras help employees
in the PTC's Traffic Operations Center
fulfill their mission to quickly identify roadway
incidents, disseminate information to the public
and dispatch the appropriate resources to
provide a rapid response to customers in need.
The new HD cameras provide the center with
higher quality images, especially at night.
The PTC manages and responds to traffic
over its 552-mile roadway system, which typically
serves 500,000 customers each day. The
PTC's mission is to provide a safe, reliable,
customer-valued toll road system that supports
national mobility and commerce.
Needing a technology partner, the PTC selected
traffic control and management solution
provider Signal Service Inc. to implement the
system upgrade to Bosch Autodome IP cameras,
which are designed for intelligent transportation
system applications. The cameras
are NEMA TS2-rated for transportation environments
and offer H.265 compression to reduce
bandwidth consumption. Signal Service
worked with the PTC's networking consultant
to ensure the cameras would meet stringent
data security and National Defense Authorization
Act (NDAA) compliance requirements.
Upgrading the infrastructure to IP enabled
the PTC to eliminate the need for video encoders
and to use PoE midspan injectors, resulting
in reduced maintenance requirements and costs
for the system. Signal Service also replaced the
camera lowering technology from MG Squared
(MG2) to install the latest MG2 Category-6a
Ethernet lowering devices. The development of
additional video analytics capabilities will be
important as the partnership moves forward.
" The project was completed on time and on
budget, " says Stephen Dowdall, director, Intelligent
Transportation Services (ITS) for Signal
Service. " Through accurate planning and working
closely with the Pennsylvania Turnpike
Commission, we finished the project in a timely
manner despite challenges associated with
the COVID-19 pandemic. "
The IP cameras integrate well with the PTC's
recently upgraded video management software
- Genetec Security Center. This also supports
advanced features of the Autodome IP cameras,
such as built-in intelligent video analytics.
Seaport Upgrades Video
The Port of Oakland near San Francisco is the
fifth busiest seaport in the United States and a
vital driver of economic activity on the West
Coast. The port
recently upgraded its mission-critical
Transportation Management and
Emergency Operations Center (TMC/EOC) to
oversee traffic flow, improve maritime operations
and provide a safer, more secure maritime area.

Seaport, Oakland Int'l Airport and nearly 20
miles of waterfront including Jack London
Square. Since its founding in 1927, the Oakland
Seaport has served as the principal ocean
gateway for international containerized cargo
shipments in Northern California. The Oakland
Seaport oversees 1,300 acres of maritime-related
facilities serving a local market of
more than 14.5 million consumers.
The role of the port's TMC/EOC is to manage
complex transportation logistics, control
traffic and provide 24/7 security monitoring.
Its multifaceted functions encompass improved
situational awareness throughout the port and
all perimeter zones; monitoring freight activity;
collecting and disseminating transportation
data; communicating and collaborating with
interagency and port partners; disseminating
traffic flow and wait time status to truck drivers;
tracking incoming and outgoing vehicles;
coordinating intermodal freight shippers; and
monitoring local rail traffic.
The goals of the upgrade were to improve
freight movement and logistics efficiency, along
with ensuring awareness and resiliency in the
