City of Fairfield, CA Chooses RADWIN for its Public Safety Video Surveillance Wireless Network

RADWIN to showcase wireless links for video surveillance at ISC West in Las Vegas, NV, Booth #17129



MAHWAH, New Jersey, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

RADWIN today announced that the City of Fairfield in California, US has deployed a RADWIN high-capacity wireless network to enhance public safety. The network is comprised of point-to-multipoint and point-to-point equipment connecting Sony PTZ video cameras installed in public locations city-wide with the central command center. Live video feeds facilitate 24x7 monitoring and enable immediate response to criminal or other urgent activity.

The City of Fairfield's I.T. department led the build-out of the public safety video transmission network. Streakwave Wireless, a global distributor of wireless solutions, helped the City to identify the equipment required to create a secure and high-performance surveillance network based on RADWIN's radios. Fiber was not available in the area and would have been too costly.  After a careful evaluation process the City of Fairfield chose RADWIN broadband radios to replace current wireless systems that were unable to provide stable bandwidth required for wireless IP CCTV camera video streams.

Sean P. Quinn, City Manager, said: "The City of Fairfield holds our ability to ensure public safety as a top priority. By utilizing the RADWIN wireless products we are able to easily deploy cameras in virtually any location within our city limits, including streets, traffic intersections and public parks. The ability to deter, prevent and capture activity using the information collected by the system is another invaluable tool for public safety to our community and our citizens."

Joshua Farlow, Executive VP Worldwide Sales from Streakwave Wireless, stated: "RADWIN was the appropriate choice for the City of Fairfield, CA.  The City required a reliable, solid and affordable backhaul and wireless delivery solution which could consistently support their CCTV equipment.  Streakwave works with its clients to determine the correct solutions to meet their needs.  In this case, having a wireless solution for their public safety system is best met with a blend of RADWIN's point-to-multipoint and point-to-point products."

What is LMR?

Land Mobile Radio (LMR) is a section of wireless communications intended for use by terrestrial (ground or marine) applications be it vehicular (mobiles) or hand- held two-way communications (portables).
LMR antennas can be completely self-contained fixed systems such as those used by companies with fleet vehicles, or can be integrated into fixed communications systems such as the public switched telephone network or cellular networks such as those used by first responders.
LMR can also be known as Public Land Mobile Radio, Private Land Mobile Radio, or Land Mobile Radio System (LMRS).

Where is Land Mobile Radio (LMR) Used?

Land Mobile Radio is used in a variety of applications. Here are some examples:
  • Emergency Communications by local governments in public safety
  • Dispatch communications by companies
  • Security communications
  • Critical two-way communications
  • Private use in many activities from the simplest person to person communication
  • Person-to-person in a large event to locate each other

  • Companies use in a range of industries
  • Marine applications
  • Military and governmental applications for reliable communications and homeland defense
Utilities, railroads, delivery companies, landscapers, building maintenance all rely on LMR

Typical equipment used:

Vehicular applications: A variety of radio manufacturers offer design-in, fixed mounted radio units that connect to external antennas that can be mounted in a variety of areas. They vary in size, length and shape but almost all are designed to be connected to some mounting base that is connected via coax cable to the fixed mounted radio.
The mounting bases (available in Laird products) can be connected to the vehicles at a variety of areas such as: mirror, trunk, light bar or surface mounts. The antennas are built to be very rugged and offer a variety of design shapes and features to ensure a long life in a very harsh environment and ensure clear paths from vehicles to the base station transmission locations.
Portable Applications: Portable applications include conventional walkie-talkie types of radios that are carried on the person. Typical applications use some portable radio connected to a flexible "rubber duck" type of antenna that is connected directly to the portable radio. Some applications utilize a remote speaker/microphone connected via coax to the portable radio with the antenna sometimes located on the remote.
