Inauguration wireless surveillance network

Alvarion : 19 February, 2009  (Application Story)
Alvarion wireless networks assist in keeping crowds safe with the transmission of surveillance images during Presidential inauguration festivities
While the world's eyes were on President Barack Obama's historic inauguration late last month, Alvarion's wireless video surveillance solutions among others were used by the US government to ensure the safety of top US leaders and a large crowd in presence during the day's ceremonies. Alvarion provided a solution that was included as part of the overall wireless video surveillance network built by US government during the inauguration on January 20, 2009, in Washington, DC.

Protecting government officials and citizens on this day is crucial and takes years of planning by the US government. The network built by the US government included commercial solutions by several companies at multiple frequencies. Several video cameras were part of the surveillance network positioned around the Washington Mall to monitor the crowds with Alvarion's BreezeACCESS 4900, a multipoint wireless broadband solution designed specifically for public safety applications operating in the licensed 4.9 GHz frequency.

"We are proud to play a key role in helping ensure safety during this historical U.S. event together with our partner Electronic Technology Inc. (ETI), a leading public safety integrator based in the Kansas City area, that provided remote technical support at the event," said Greg Daily, president of Alvarion, Inc. "With the continued emphasis placed on public and personal safety, Alvarion's wireless video surveillance solutions are used by governments and agencies around the world to gain real-time, broadband access to critical databases. Alvarion's solution, custom designed for this special application, leverages Alvarion's large global customer base of broadband wireless solutions."

"This inauguration is the largest ever in U.S. history, so security was our greatest concern in terms of protecting not only the President and top national leaders, but also the large crowds on hand," said Dan Carr, President and Lead Consultant of ETI. "Alvarion's BreezeACCESS provides the flexibility and portability to be rapidly and easily deployed anywhere, while offering broadband connectivity and security, which were all key factors in selecting this platform as part of the overall video surveillance network."

Alvarion's wireless video surveillance solution supplies a high-quality, reliable solution with secure encrypted connectivity and high bandwidth support, allowing high QoS for real-time video surveillance. Alvarion brings to the market a complete high quality, high speed broadband wireless solutions portfolio for a variety of advanced applications.
