Intracom Telecom: Advanced city surveillance networks with MW and mmWave radios

New-generation microwave and millimeter-wave wireless backhaul technologies leverage the design of autonomous sensing layer connectivity to provide secure and cost-efficient 24/7 vigilance in city surveillance networks.

Some of the main challenges associated with city surveillance include the capacity-demanding connectivity and transmission for video surveillance data, the reliability and security issues, the fast rollout and ease of use, as well as the equipment form factor.

The availability of advanced MW and mmWave radios allow public and private sector organizations to easily deploy surveillance infrastructure. Low-cost, technically-complete, native IP-based backhaul solutions are offered enabling simple deployment at any location, secure and reliable connections, and ease of installation and configuration for a variety of modern security applications.

Such a backhaul solution is made available by Intracom Telecom combining all-outdoor radios (WiBAS™-OSDR, StreetNode™, StreetNode™ V60-PTP) and a network management platform (uniMS™). This state-of-the-art solution allows deploying advanced city surveillance networks and provides substantial advantages including:

  • Extended reach in urban landscape, due to software-defined PtMP and PtP operation.
  • CapEx and OpEx savings, due to microwave multipoint architecture and license-free operation in millimeter-wave frequencies respectively.
  • Flexible powering options (direct DC, direct AC and PoE).
  • Unified management of radio equipment network and wireless services.
  • Automations for fast and easy street-level deployment, using Bluetooth interface (embedded in the radio) and an Android tablet.
  • 1 Gbit/s backhaul capacity, fulfilling the requirements for the demanding HD video and face-recognition algorithms.
  • Flexible networking capabilities from a compact, all-in-one package with integrated antenna – three Gigabit interfaces and an embedded switch per radio.

Intracom Telecom’s recent public safety projects in Europe include the supply of Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint wireless systems, and network management system to the Monitoring System Services Company of the Capital City of Warsaw (ZOSM) in Poland and ProRail in the Netherlands for addressing the demanding backhaul needs for their video surveillance network.

Intracom Telecom’s solution enables ZOSM to create a high-speed, secure and high-performance network that supports over 425 cameras installed in 18 districts of Warsaw. This network provides 24-hour surveillance of the most threatened places in the capital. Intracom Telecom’s wireless equipment provides the Warsaw Metropolitan Police with prompt and accurate information about crimes, offenses and other events occurring in areas covered by the surveillance system.

Furthermore, the Intracom Telecom solution has been selected by ProRail, the national Netherland Railway Infrastructure Operator with a network of approximately 3000km to provide its technology for the surveillance transmission infrastructure at the Dutch railway stations. Intracom Telecom supplied, for the first phase of the project, 21 hubs and 78 terminals. Intracom Telecom performed the RF planning and supplied the equipment, which, for the first stage, has been installed at 16 railway stations throughout the country, from Groningen to Maastricht. An advanced CCTV solution has been installed incorporating Intracom Telecom's wireless transmission equipment that is used to connect hundreds of IP cameras.

Intracom Telecom guarantees the deployment success of the city surveillance backhaul network by being the one-stop shop and the established wireless vendor recognized for service excellence, a statement that is proved by the extensive track record.
