Roughly 8 million annual passengers travel New York Harbor on N.Y. Waterway ferries, protected by an extensive, state-of-the-art video surveillance system. The system includes hundreds of Interlogix IP and analog cameras, transmitted from moving ferries to a land-based security command center via a fast-roaming wireless mesh network based on multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) by Fluidmesh Networks.
