The Israeli municipality of Be’er Sheva has selected radios by Radwin, a provider of backhaul and broadband wireless solutions, to be part of a large-scale video surveillance project designed to enhance residents’ safety and safeguard critical infrastructure.
As part of the video surveillance project, Be’er Sheva installed high-definition mega-pixel cameras throughout the city in places such as traffic intersections and public parks. The Radwin 2000 radios were deployed to transfer high-resolution video from the pan, tilt and zoom cameras to the project’s control center enabling security personnel to monitor video coverage from a remote location in real-time, 24×7 and provide immediate response when needed.
“Radwin’s video surveillance network is simply phenomenal,” said Shimon Kariaf, Be’er Sheva’s control center manager. “Radwin’s wireless radios transmit and backhaul video with superior image quality over long distances and cost significantly less than alternative wireless technologies,” he said. Be’er Sheva plans to continue working with Radwin in the deployment of hundreds of additional cameras city wide, he added.
Cities are deploying Radwin radios because of “their unmatched uplink capabilities,” said Roni Weinberg, the company’s executive vice president and COO. “With thousands of installations worldwide, Radwin has become the de-facto standard for high-end video surveillance transmission,” he added.
