Surveillance and security camera backhaul using IP technology over wireless bridges
Video Surveillance via IP cameras has accelerated in the post 9/11 world and placed demands on communications networks to handle large volumes of data, which has increased exponentially due to the transition to High Definition video. LightPoint's laser-radios and point to point 60 GHz and 70/80 GHz radios are used to aggregate such data streams and backhaul to monitoring facilities.
Critical points of entry at borders and locations such as airports, shipping ports, and highway checkpoints have experienced massive growth in the need for cameras and the network infrastructure to aggregate such transmission feeds. The reasons for this growth include the recent drops in prices for IP cameras, increased need for High Definition video, and the ease of installing IP security systems.
Adding to the ease of installation is the widespread use of Power over Ethernet (PoE) products. Most of LightPointe's wireless bridges for security backhaul utilize PoE, for fast and efficient installation and low power consumption. Traditional AC power wiring is often not available or easy to install. PoE has emerged to allow devices such as networked cameras and wireless bridges to receive power over the same cable that carries data.
Industries & Sectors:
Keeping networks safe from intruders is a top priority for all Enterprises, including government agencies. With today's Enterprises operating networks at speeds of Fast Ethernet and higher, IT professionals face constant pressure to balance LAN improvements and security to ensure the integrity of day-to-day business operations and protection of confidential information. Enterprises transferring large amounts of voice, video or data need secure ultra-high bandwidth building-to-building connectivity that does not carry enormous costs of fiber-optic cable.
Camera Backhaul / Application Scenario
An Enterprise (business, school, government agency, airport, etc.) wants to install cameras at another building or site. Optionally, the Enterprise wants to extend its LAN to the new site and provide GigE/GbE Ethernet connections.
The Enterprise installs a Gigabit-capacity LightPointe 4th generation Free Space Optics bridge, providing both the capacity for HD cameras and optional LAN extension.
