Axxonsoft protects the world's longest toll road

Moscow, Russia

After considering the enormous traffic flows and high risk of fraud, Panavial management decided to install the Axxon Intellect PSIM at the company’s tollbooths. Axxon Intellect is designed for creating sophisticated security systems of any scale and can be customised for site requirements, enabling clients to mix and match only the features needed for a particular project.

The Pan-American Highway is the world's longest motorable road, connecting the U.S. and Canada with Latin America. Extending from the North Slope of Alaska to the southern tip of South America, the highway extends approximately 30,000 miles (48,000 kilometers) – greater than the circumference of the earth. Construction started in 1923 and, in some stretches, continues to this day.

This is certainly a massive project but it is also a massive maintenance task - trying to service and secure such a highway. This was the situation faced by Panavial when the company decided to turn to Axxonsoft for Axxon Intellect, PSIM software that was put in place to meet all of their security needs – and more.

Panavial is the pride of Ecuador. Established in 1996, Panavial maintains its status as one of the largest and most respected Ecuadorian companies.

The Pan-American Highway is huge. Every year, 4 million vehicles pass through nine tollbooths on Panavial-operated roads. This equals around 11,000 vehicles every day, 500 every hour and over 7 every minute.

Feature flexibility was one of the most compelling arguments for Axxon Intellect: both high-quality video surveillance and logging of all tollbooth events were required. This is why the Retail Intellect payment monitoring module was integrated into the system as well.

In total, 72 cameras were installed for surveillance and recording at nine tollbooths, supported by 8 servers, 72 point-of-sale channels, and 16 remote clients. A central monitoring hub was created for system management and administration. Installation and setup were performed by Telectrónica.

According to the company, the Axxon Intellect-powered integrated security system meets all of the client's needs, providing reliable oversight of transactions and 24/7 video surveillance. Now Panavial can identify malfunctions and fraud with surgical precision as it does its part to support the Pan-American Highway.
