Wireless Network Grid Brings Flexible Surveillance Networking To Seoul and Busan

Firetide : 21 January, 2011  (Application Story)
Major Korean cities take metropolitan wireless networking from Firetide for widespread wi-fi access, public safety, location based tracking and surveillance network connectivity including within the cities' underground railway network
South Korea leads the world in becoming a ‘Smart Country’ thanks in part to Silicon Valley Firetide’s wireless networks used to deliver the country’s ubiquitous digital services. While large Firetide-based ‘Smart City’ projects are found in the US as well as India, Australia and other countries, South Korea is implementing its innovative wireless digital services country-wide:



Firetide’s wireless networks are providing digital services, known as the ‘u-Korea’ project, to residents, tourists and municipal businesses in many of South Korea’s cities, including the two largest – Seoul and Busan. Firetide’s wireless infrastructure has been deployed to provide critical infrastructure for a variety of applications: from public safety and municipal department connectivity, to Wi-Fi access and sensor networks. Firetide provided connectivity for networks in the Cheonggyecheon Waterway restoration project and Seoul Forest, Seoul’s largest park. In addition, Seoul City is using Firetide-based, real-time video surveillance combined with location-based tracking to help recover children if they are lost or abducted.



To preserve the environment and prevent natural disasters, the South Korean government is undertaking a major restoration project of the country’s four largest rivers – the Han River, the Yeongsan River, the Nakdong River and the Seomjin River – and surrounding recreational areas. When completed in 2012, Firetide’s wireless infrastructure will provide a sensor network for water level, temperature and pollution measurement; a video surveillance network to monitor the dams; and public Wi-Fi service for adjacent riverside parks.



“We selected Firetide because no other company offers the high performance, multi-service wireless infrastructure capable of reliably covering such a large area and securely supporting the concurrent transmission of real-time video, voice and data,” said Mr. Song Choong II, the ‘4 Rivers Restoration’ project manager for Daelim I&S. “We are also impressed with Firetide’s track record in providing wireless infrastructure solutions for applications such as the Seoul Subway and other ‘ubiquitous city’ projects throughout South Korea.”



The First Real-Time, High Bandwidth Mobile Video Surveillance System for Seoul Subway



The Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit Corporation is installing Firetide wireless infrastructure mesh in Seoul’s subway system. It is the first real-time, high-bandwidth mobile wireless video surveillance subway system in Korea and the world, costing an estimated total of $60 million. Firetide was selected because no other vendor could provide the performance required to deliver streaming video from the stations to the moving trains at high speeds, while operating in one of the harshest environments for radio frequency (RF) networks.



According to the independent South Korean Digital Daily IT newspaper, Firetide is the leading provider of wireless mesh in South Korea with 70 percent market share.
