In order to enhance the safety and security of its residents, the City of Pittsboro Police Department, located in Pittsboro, Indiana, recently installed a Civic Surveillance system, made possible using the Proxim Wireless (News - Alert) Tsunami MP-8100 series radios and antennas and Avigilon's high-definition surveillance system.
Police officials confirmed that they have deployed high-definition surveillance system in the city's intersections and parks to protect the city from incidents of vandalism, evidence of unauthorized access, and other threats to valuable assets.
Proxim’s equipment and Avigilon's HD surveillance solution were part of this whole project as they were the only providers offering their products with high security, scalability and cost efficiency.
"We are grateful for the highly capable equipment solution that Proxim has delivered to Pittsboro which enhances safety through increased security across our City," commented Lt. Scott A. King of the Pittsboro Police Department.
Lt. Scott A. King said the new solution was delivered not only in a timely manner, but cost effectively, allowing them to save money across their entire surveillance system while experiencing increases in quality and bandwidth.
By using Proxim's unique Tsunami MP-8100 series radio and antenna solutions the City is able to receive the required bandwidth to support existing and additional surveillance, including projected future requirements.
"The solution we provided is a great example of how Proxim can economically deliver highly scalable systems for small and mid-sized communities across the United States," added Dave Dobson, regional sales manager of Proxim Wireless. "Pittsboro's challenges are experienced by many different municipalities across the country and as such, we are working with the AllthingsIT and their Safe Small Towns initiative which is focused on helping small towns address their Civic Surveillance requirements cost-effectively and efficiently."
Since its inception, Proxim Wireless Corporation has been offering Wi-Fi, Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint 4G wireless network technologies for wireless internet, video surveillance and backhaul applications.
