REVIEWER: Dave Allred, CIO of 407 International Inc.

BACKGROUND: 407 International Inc. owns and operates 407 Express Toll Route (ETR), the world's first all-electronic open-access toll highway, which runs 108 kilometers east-west just north of Toronto. Traffic is monitored by overhead gantries, which query the transponders installed in vehicles as they pass below or photograph vehicles' license plates as they begin and end their trips on the road. Customers are then billed a toll based on distance traveled, time of day, class of vehicle and whether or not the vehicle had a transponder.
