SCHAUMBURG, Ill.—Current Technologies, a full-service IT consulting firm and member of Motorola Solutions’ PartnerEmpower channel program, has deployed a wireless video surveillance solution in Village of Maywood, Ill., to aid local law enforcement efforts to protect businesses and residents.
A combination of two Motorola wireless broadband technologies have been implemented to securely backhaul footage from wireless video surveillance cameras installed throughout the community’s most troubled areas.
The Motorola 4300 series intelligent access points (IAP) help create high-performance, mesh wide area networks (MWAN) to offer broadband access in locations where several cameras are installed. The mesh IAPs leverage the MeshConnex routing engine and Motorola’s One Point Wireless Manager element management system, creating a self-forming, self-healing wireless broadband network, according to the company.
“Ensuring the safety and security of local businesses and residents is one of our top priorities, and the addition of real-time video surveillance capabilities has greatly strengthened these efforts,” says Village of Maywood Police Department Chief Tim Curry. “By opting for wireless broadband to backhaul video footage from video cameras across the village, we were able to greatly reduce the upfront equipment and installation costs while putting in place an infrastructure that has given us the flexibility to quickly shift or add video surveillance capability when and where it is needed.”
Additionally, the IAPs work in synch with Motorola PMP 400 network access solutions, which provide backhaul, ensure reliable and secure transport of data traffic between the village’s neighborhoods and the core of the network, and deliver cost-effective access to areas where only standalone cameras are needed.
