Sensor Security expanding into wireless broadband

April 2018 Editor's Choice, News, IT infrastructure, Products

Sensor Security is expanding into a new product class: wireless, or more specifically, ultra-fast wireless broadband. This move means that Sensor’s clients will be able to transfer video, sound and data over long distances via a wireless product solution without relying on third-party data networks.

Marco Della Peruta, head of technical services at Sensor Security, explains, “Video surveillance cameras typically transfer information using third-party networks, which can be limiting. And this is where we see data transfer technology, which can deliver fast, stable and reliable connectivity in high interference applications, playing a vital role.”

With this thinking in mind, Sensor set about finding the right partner brand to help it achieve its goal. “LigoWave is a US-based company that matches our commitment to quality. It produces a carrier-class product, which means that there is a strong emphasis on durability and cost efficiency. In short, we feel that LigoWave is the ideal choice for the African market.”

Della Peruta explains, “The way these products work is that data is sent via a sender and receiver. This in itself is not new, but what is exciting is that there is zero reliance on civil hardware – and zero red tape. What is also exciting is the carrier’s ability to handle high throughput (up to 700 Mbps over a proprietary protocol) of triple-stream services, which is of key importance when it comes to heavy duty, real-time video surveillance.”

Overcoming physical challenges

“Another advantage,” he continues, “is that this new technology provides a solution to the challenge of covering rugged terrain. In South Africa, for example, remote locations or testing physical environments means that there is often no – or very little – existing cable infrastructure to make use of. The LigoWave point to multipoint network can also cover great distances.

“The intelligence behind the LigoWave product range is highly appealing too. The units are specifically designed to be easy to deploy and easy to configure. The hardware carries an IP67 weather rating and has integrated surge protection. And given the increase of noise in the unlicensed band, a reliable and stable connection is increasingly difficult to achieve, which is why metal enclosures work as a deflector eliminating interference caused by backlobes and rejecting noise when multiple base-stations are co-located on a single tower.

Apart from radio frequency (RF) shielding, the metal housing works as a heatsink, allowing better RF performance by dissipating the heat generated by the radio. What’s more, units like the Integrated RapidFire have a 45 degree rotation option of the mounting bracket, which enables installers to change the polarity of the radio frequency put out by the units, which reduces interference even more.”
