Located 79 nautical miles north of San Francisco, the Port of West Sacramento is situated in the heart of California's state capital boasting some of the world's richest agricultural and industrial regions. Due to its central location, the Port is established in a bustling transportation network with direct access to major interstate and highway roads, international airports and national railway systems.
Concentrated in such a progressive transportation hub, the Port of West Sacramento was in need of a surveillance solution that would meet the demanding requirements of continual video surveillance throughout their facilities. With an overall outdated system, it simply did not satisfy the Port's security demands.
Amy Cameron, Analyst for City of West Sacramento says, "When the City of West Sacramento began management of the Port of West Sacramento, the security cameras and overall system was antiquated, not integrated, and became difficult to maintain."
With this in mind, the Port weighed out their options and knew that upgrading their entire surveillance environment was the only option.
