Cut the wires! The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority is going wireless with part of its video security system reports Miami-based security systems integrator ATC International.

The project encompasses the Tri-Rail network, a commute rail services reaching over 72 miles in South Florida and extending across 18 staions in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties.
