Wireless policing in Namibia
February 2017, This Week's Editor's Pick, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, IT infrastructure
Radwin announced that the Windhoek Police Department in Namibia built a state-of-the-art wireless video surveillance network using Radwin’s wireless broadband access solutions.
Radwin’s Point-to-Multipoint and Point-to-Point systems were installed in dozens of crime hot-spots throughout the city. The systems transmit high-quality video from the cameras directly to police headquarters, enabling on-the-spot detection and response to events. Rampoint Communications, a leading turnkey solutions provider, was responsible for project design and implementation.
Cillie Auala, spokesperson for the Windhoek City Police said, “Initially we used a Wi-Fi-based solution for CCTV transmission, but decided to upgrade our legacy network because it did not meet our requirements for high-capacity transmission and our safety and performance standards. Now that we are using Radwin’s systems, we’re getting highest video transmission quality with zero video pixilation and low jitter – which is vital for our mission-critical operations.”
Andre Delport, MD, Rampoint Communications, added, “Namibia’s vision is to be the safest African country by 2020. To deliver on this vision, we recommended Radwin’s Point-to-Multipoint systems which deliver dedicated bandwidth per camera site with 90% uplink traffic and mega-capacity of up to 750 Mbps, as well as Radwin’s Point-to-Point systems for backhaul. From our extensive experience, Radwin’s solutions operate in the toughest urban environments, overcoming interference and line-of-sight obstacles to deliver superior video performance.”
Peter Turvey, Radwin GM Africa said, “With our wireless broadband solutions, the city’s police forces and first responders can monitor and address unfolding situations in real-time and use high-definition video surveillance footage, enhancing the safety and security of citizens in Windhoek.”
