Axis earns a degree in protection at UDLAP

University of Las Americas in Puebla renews its surveillance system with IP video from Axis

“We decided Axis was the best option based on their experience, and because they are a world leader in the IP video surveillance sector, which perfectly fits with our mission. This encourages all the team members to always be on the lookout for new technology and to stay at the forefront of education.” Juan Carlos Díaz Silva, Deputy Director of Technology and Communications Interactive Collaboration.


The Universidad de Las Americas Puebla (UDLAP) is located in a small community called Cholula in the State of Puebla, Mexico. It is one of the most important colleges in the country and, although the area is relatively safe, security is a must to preserve the integrity of the institution and protect students and staff on campus. This is the reason why they upgraded their analog cameras to an Axis IP video surveillance system.


UDLAP continuously invests a large amount of capital to strengthen its physical and educational environment, and it has a wide range of both human and technical resources. The campus comprises a total area of 185 acres, and their old analog system could not provide the appropriate overview. After analyzing their needs, UDLAP selected a scalable, forward-thinking solution with 215 cameras from Axis Communications all controlled on a Milestone XProtect® Enterprise 7 VMS platform running on Pivot3 vSTAC® Watch converged storage and compute appliances.


The system has been a complete success. More than 700 reports have been solved since the University turned to IP video. The number of lost items has decreased, suspicious people have been detected around the campus and the incident response time has decreased. It is now possible to obtain more accurate control of the entire campus using IP video.
