InfiNet Wireless in partnership with Inter Crown Europe of Hungary, today announced the launch of an IP Surveillance Service aimed at transmitting high resolution video streams to local authorities. The companies completed a successful joint project for wireless IPS Global-Line in the city of Hatvan and across neighbouring towns.
One of the main challenges of this project was overcoming the potential for interference and overcrowded airways usually found in a busy city environment.
“Global-Line was looking for a network with a guaranteed availability close to 100% and with minimum maintenance requirements,” said Laszlo Povazsai, Inter Crown’s business development manager. “Working with engineers from InfiNet Wireless, we were able to quickly deploy the network, optimise it for the intended application and offer low latency and real-time video streaming.”
The first phase of the network was built using a number of links based on the InfiLINK 2x2 80Mbps, each equipped with integrated 22dBi antennas. Infinet Wireless also also supplied many other links used to backhaul traffic generated by the existing third party customer premises equipment, thus creating seamless peer-to-peer connectivity for each remote camera.
With the network now fully deployed, Global-Line can truly take advantage of Infinet’s superior technology and benefit from capacities of up to 80Mbps in a crowded urban environment, delivering flawless connectivity across a large footprint. The infrastructure deployed allowed it to implement its new business strategy of streaming IP traffic through its networks, to ultimately expand its services to nearby cities, and significantly enhancing its chances of securing new and strategic public service projects in the near future.
Kamal Mokrani, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at InfiNet Wireless, explains: “Using our wireless solutions, our end customer was able to implement a quick and highly reliable urban video surveillance network, thus achieving its key business objective of offering value added services to its customer base. We built this network with an eye for the future, ensuring it is scalable and able to support new applications and new coverage areas as and when they are required by the end users.”
