RADWIN's Wireless Broadband in Motion Solution Boosts Security for Rail & Metro RADWIN's solution delivers real-time high definition video from train-to-ground, improving operators' situational awareness
TEL AVIV, Israel, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
RADWIN (http://www.radwin.com), the leading provider of Wireless Broadband in Motion, announced its unique solution geared for online video surveillance onboard trains. RADWIN's wireless broadband in motion solution is already in advanced deployment stages in key rail and metro projects around the world.
"There is an ever-growing threat of terror attacks and a rise in crime and vandalism onboard trains and metros," said Roni Weinberg, RADWIN's EVP Global Business & COO. "Places that draw mass crowds have unfortunately become a target, and transport authorities face the formidable task of ensuring passenger safety today more than ever before."
RADWIN's wireless broadband in motion solution increases situational awareness by transmitting HD video in real-time from multiple CCTV cameras onboard trains back to a control center while the train is on the move. RADWIN's solution is based on powerful base stations deployed along the railway and underground tracks that communicate with mobile units installed onboard trains.
Today there are metro systems that record video from onboard the trains but the footage is downloaded only when the trains reach the stations. Other systems have tried to utilize WiFi-based solutions to accomplish real time CCTV transmission to the NOC, however, this required a substantial number of access point installations and compounded network complexity. RADWIN's train-to-ground wireless broadband solution goes beyond standard Wi-Fi and incorporates advanced technologies to enhance throughput, coverage and robustness. The solution delivers the highest capacity (50 - 100 Mbps) for trains that travel at speeds of up to 200Km/h.
Concluded Weinberg: "RADWIN's Wireless Broadband in Motion is geared for rail and metro operators, enabling CCTV video transmission from onboard trains and not just station platforms. The solution serves to enhance situational awareness so operators can boost passengers' security and safety. With our solution, personnel stationed in the control center can keep round-the-clock watch of passenger movements on crowded trains and platforms and alert authorities to potential threats, facilitating fast detection and response to events."
