The system will assist the police force and the City in providing better protection in the downtown core.   The project will allow city officials and the police force to access pertinent information via a secured network housed within the Ontario Provincial Police substation, and also allow them to control PTZ cameras through a licensed wireless network. The first phase of this project has four locations that are transmitting back to one location. The long-term plan is to have up to 60 cameras throughout the city.
Mirtech will provide a Firetide secured wireless mesh network, install fixed and PTZ cameras on existing street lights, and specified poles on the main street in the city, then network the system through a secured server housed within the police force substation. Due to the nature of the installation, the client will be supplied with a separate secure network to be run parallel to the existing network and provide the future ability for mobile police units to access the system in real time from their police cruisers.
