Today, a provider of complete outdoor wireless backhaul systems, Proxim Wireless (News - Alert) Corporation, announced that the company’s wireless backhaul solution has been selected by the Community of Villefontaine, situated in the Rhone-Alps Region of France, for its security and surveillance systems. Proxim's Tsunami QB-8150 high performance wireless backhaul products were deployed to enable wireless high definition video surveillance.
Villefontaine, a suburb of the City of Lyon in France, is a relatively young town. In order to serve its residents, local government facilities were dispersed that made it a difficult task for local police to cover such a large area. To help local law enforcement, it was decided that a video surveillance system was needed. The surveillance network deployment has helped to protect and maintain a safer environment for the local community and has therefore proved to be a valuable day-to-day work tool.
The project required a detailed wireless site survey prior to deployment, hence Proxim Wireless’ certified partner in this region, Libertylan, was selected as the integrator for the project. Secure wireless links replaced costly leased lines. This high capacity radio network was able to provide data transfer and VoIP services as well as secure wireless transmission of video images.
"The Proxim Wireless system we have in place has performed flawlessly and has ensured the security of our critical applications," said Thierry Gouin, IT director for the Community Council of Villefontaine.
Gouin added that due to the various pre-planning phases that were carried out, it was determined that Proxim's wireless backhaul products provided the performance and security they required. They were able to cancel some leased fiber lines, which resulted in substantial cost savings. Not only was Proxim's wireless solution far less expensive, but when compared to alternative solutions, it was easier and quicker to install stated Christian Hascoet, Technical Director of Libertylan.
