Wireless solutions form backbone of gargantuan Safe City video monitoring project.
InfiNet Wireless, a leading global manufacturer and provider of carrier-grade wireless infrastructure solutions for Fixed Broadband Wireless Access (FBWA) and wireless connectivity, today announced that Moscow City Council has selected InfiNet Wireless technology to run its video monitoring programme for public safety in the Russian capital.
Moscow City Council selected telecoms service provider A-Tel who worked alongside Dateline, the integrator, and InfiNet Wireless to deploy point-to-point and point-to-multipoint technologies to cover a network designed to deliver live video streams from a series of cameras dotted around the 960 square miles city.
InfiNet Wireless’ high-speed, wireless point-to-point backhaul solution InfiLINK 2x2 was selected for the backbone network, whilst InfiMAN 2x2 was deployed for the high capacity point-to-multi-point needed for last mile access and camera connectivity. Both integrated and connectorised antenna models were chosen, operating in the 5 Ghz and 6 Ghz spectrum.
Due to Moscow’s dense urban landscape and strong radio interference, coupled with limited availability of free radio spectrum left to operate with, InfiNet’s Instant Dynamic Frequency Selection (Instant DFS) was deployed in all units.
“This interference mitigation technology has been designed by InfiNet Wireless to continuously monitor available frequency bands, scanning each one for radio noise, radar signals and interference”, said Kamal Mokrani, VP at InfiNet Wireless. “The data is then collected and stored without impacting network performance and then fed real-time into the radio module so that the unit’s management software can switch frequency channels instantly and automatically as soon as any external interference is detected, without any packet loss.”
The huge 192.7 billion rouble programme (around USD 5.8bln) would run from 2012 to 2016 to ensure 100 per cent coverage of transport infrastructure, municipal services, sports facilities and any other public areas, with the main focus of the project on crime prevention and anti-terrorism.
