RADWIN Chosen by Israeli Municipality for Large-Scale 'Safe City' Video Surveillance Project RADWIN's Wireless Radios Deployed by City of Be'er Sheva to Enhance Residents' Safety and Safeguard Valuable Property
TEL AVIV, Israel, May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
RADWIN (http://www.radwin.com), the global provider of Backhaul and Broadband Wireless Solutions, today announced that the Be'er Sheva Municipality in Israel deployed RADWIN 2000 radios in a large-scale video surveillance project designed to enhance residents' safety and safeguard critical infrastructure. Bynet Systems Applications, a leading system integrator in Israel, was in charge of project design and implementation.
The Be'er Sheva Municipality installed high-definition mega-pixel cameras throughout the city in places such as traffic intersections and public parks. RADWIN's systems were deployed to transfer high-resolution video from the megapixel PTZ cameras back to the municipality's control center. This enables security personnel to monitor video coverage from a remote location in real-time, 24x7 and provide immediate response when needed.
"RADWIN's video surveillance network is simply phenomenal," said Shimon Kariaf, Control Center Manager, Be'er Sheva Municipality. "RADWIN's wireless radios transmit and backhaul video with superior image quality over long distances and cost significantly less than alternative wireless technologies. Today we couldn't be happier with operation of the radios, and will continue to work with RADWIN as we deploy hundreds of additional cameras city-wide."
Shimon Halfon, VP Projects, Bynet Systems Applications, said: "RADWIN 2000 systems backhaul video from as many as 8 cameras per site and transmit video over 5 Km with high capacity of 50 Mbps and zero latency. Systems operate in particularly challenging city conditions, including non-line-of-sight, high interference and extreme environmental forces such as strong winds, fog, dust, and harsh climate."
Roni Weinberg, RADWIN's Executive VP & COO, stated: "The Be'er Sheva deployment is the latest example of the performance and robustness that our radios deliver for video applications. Cities in Israel and around the world are deploying RADWIN's systems as the building blocks of their wireless surveillance networks due to their unmatched uplink capabilities. With thousands of installations worldwide, RADWIN has become the de-facto standard for high-end video surveillance transmission."
RADWIN is a leading provider of the sub-6 GHz wireless Point-to-Point and Point-to-MultiPoint solutions. RADWIN's solutions deliver voice, video and data for long ranges and are deployed in over 140 countries worldwide.
