Video Surveillance and Traffic Management applications are usually implemented in such a way as to allow multiple video streams to be monitored centrally in a network operations center. Consequently, these types of applications require high capacity remote or subscriber units with robust and reliable uplink capabilities. ESPOD solutions are fully optimized to cater for such uplink applications, providing high throughputs required for streaming live high-quality video without interruptions.
Being one of the most challenging applications for any wireless based solution; live video streaming requires high capacity radio links in order to maintain multi-megabit streams. ESPOD Wireless solutions have been carefully engineered and fine-tuned to meet these exact requirements. Both the base stations and subscriber units are capable of handling multiple video streams. The base stations provide high sector capacity, which is field-upgradeable from 80 to 240 Mbps and is designed to use less of the valuable radio spectrum than traditional point-to-multipoint wireless systems. ESPOD CPEs are able to cater for bandwidth requirements between 4 and 50 Mbps net capacity.
- Full Support of Real-time Applications
The availability of a high capacity radio link is only half the story. ESPOD systems also ensure the transmission of high-quality video streams in real-time mode by allowing the operator to set priorities over other types of traffic to ensure the lowest possible latency and smooth display of video signals. In effect, an operator cans priorities bandwidth for different types of traffic so that low priority traffic won’t impact negatively upon mission-critical data.
- Unsurpassed Robustness and Reliability
Reliability and robustness have always been two of the most critical requirements for any outdoor wireless deployment, whether used for video streaming or other applications. ESPOD solutions have been deployed in their thousands in all parts of the world and in the most extreme environmental conditions, from the plains of Siberia and the dunes of the Sahara to the humidity of the Equator. A unique dust and moisture protection system, a built-in lightning protection and ultra-safe sealing for the outdoor units ensure uninterrupted operation of the radio units.
- Multi-service Transport Network
IP networks deployed for the transmission of video streams can also be used for other purposes such as data and voice transmission. ESPOD Wireless’s entire range of solutions can not only provide high capacity transmission platforms for these applications, but also have built-in sophisticated and powerful industry standard Quality-of-Service management features used to ensure top priority settings and highest quality for real-time and time-sensitive applications
