Wireless Video Networks – Do you have a video broadcast network (CCTV, depositions, church services, etc) or video surveillance needs such as IP Cameras that are miles apart from your Network Video Recorder?
- Our wireless video networks (basically a wireless bridge) sends the video stream (backhauls the data) from distances of 50 feet to 25 miles. We have used these networks for H.264 video streams, audio streams, and IP Camera and video surveillance systems all while meeting latency and QOS requirements.
- We have used our solutions to connect IP surveillance equipment from Geovision, Honeywell, Pelco, Arecont, Axis, Apex, just to name a few. Since our networks are standards based, it will work with any manufacturer’s equipment.
- If you are in the video surveillance business, consider subcontracting the connectivity for your cameras back to the NVR and be much more competitive in your bid. The cost for deploying our wireless bridges is considerably less than trenching fiber, coax, etc. Also, you don’t have to call the local or state municipality to come and verify everything before you dig.
How reliable are these links?
- One of the dirty little secrets of the telecommunications world is that most carriers actually use wireless links to send their own data (meaning your data) from one location to another.
- The correct equipment (installed correctly) has the same uptime statistics as fiber or any other type of connection. In actuality, there is a much greater chance of Siamese cable, (or whatever low voltage cable you would use for analog or IP cameras) fiber, or T1/T3 lines being cut by a backhoe or ditch witch machinery than wireless equipment mounted safely out of reach of such devices.
- With our wireless connection, there is no cable laying underground or strung aerially to be cut. But don’t take our word for it. Here is a link (it will open a new tab) to stories about fiber cuts from Level3, one of the largest fiber providers in the United States.
What kinds of speeds are available?
- It basically depends upon your needs. However, we have connections ranging in speeds from 50MB to 1GB and beyoned. We utilize frequencies from 5Ghz up to 80 Ghz (both in the licensed and unlicensed frequency spectrum) and even have solutions utilizing optical networking (laser networking) depending on the requirements of your network.
- The point to all of this is to know that you have options for your video networks, options that deliver the same (if not much faster) speed and are much more cost-effective.
