RADWIN, the global broadband wireless leader, announced that the Windhoek City Police in Namibia built a state-of-the-art wireless video surveillance network leveraging 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 camera sites 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, Windhoek City Police: “Initially we used a Wi-Fi-based solution for CCTV transmission, but decided to upgrade our legacy network because it didn’t meet requirements for high-capacity transmission and our safety and performance standards. Now that we’re 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, Managing Director, Rampoint Communications: “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 the 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: “RADWIN and Rampoint Communications are excited to play a key role in the establishment of this vital surveillance network for the Windhoek City Police. Today the City’s Police Forces and First Responders can monitor and immediately address unfolding situations in real-time and also use high-definition video surveillance footage, enhancing the safety of citizens in Windhoek.”
