RADWIN'S wireless video solutions help reduce crime in Charleroi;
Systems transmit video from over 200 HD video cameras with superior image quality
RADWIN (http://www.radwin.com), the global provider of Backhaul and Broadband Wireless Solutions, today announced that it was chosen by the Belgium Police for a large-scale SAFE CITY project in the city of Charleroi. RADWIN 5000 Point-to-Multipoint and RADWIN 2000 Point-to-Point systems were deployed in a high-crime area in Charleroi, and are used to deliver video from over 200 high-definition cameras installed throughout the city back to police headquarters. This allows the police force to effectively monitor public areas and swiftly respond to occurrences of crime and vandalism. Blue Vision telecom, RADWIN's partner in Belgium, was in charge of project design and implementation.
RADWIN provides a unique solution for wireless video transmission. RADWIN 5000 base stations deliver up to 250 Mbps with highest uplink capacity. The systems have low visual impact and can aggregate traffic from multiple HD cameras and transmit video with superior image quality in real-time. The powerful combination of outstanding performance, innovative technology and cost-effective price makes RADWIN's offering the best in the industry for high-quality video surveillance applications.
Geert Nauwelaerts and Wim Simons, managing partners at Blue Vision Telecom, stated: "This deployment posed a major challenge because it required connectivity of 200 HD cameras in one square kilometer area. No other manufacturer could guarantee the high performance of multiple wireless connections in such a congested area. RADWIN, however, proved this was possible. Incorporating advanced technologies such as GPS Synchronization which eliminates collocation interference, as well as MIMO and OFDM technologies, RADWIN's solutions were the best fit for this project."
Yaron Ziv, RADWIN's European Managing Director, said: "We are proud to have been chosen for this project based upon our proven track record of building high-capacity wireless video networks worldwide. RADWIN today provides a comprehensive solution that delivers actionable surveillance information 24/7. Our Point-to-Multipoint and Point-to-Point systems are delivering real results, improving the safety and wellbeing of the citizens of Charleroi, Belgium."
