Yoqne’am, Israel, February 24, 2010 – Wavion™, a company transforming the Metro and Rural Wi-Fi market with a new category of Wi-Fi Base Station and BHU, Wavion’s distributor in the Chinese market, announced today the deployment of Wavion’s Wi-Fi base stations for a city-wide video surveillance network in China.
The network has been deployed as part of the “Peace City” project in a rural city in China. The network includes 120 video cameras located in strategic positions to monitor public buildings, roads, major junctions and traffic load. The network infrastructure was based on Wavion’s WBS-5800 base stations which were installed on towers with a direct fiber connection to the command and control center of the City’s security forces. The network design provisioned each CPE to accommodate 1-4 cameras.
“This project is a major contribution for law enforcement in rural China”, said Mr. Yao Yongxin, BHU General Manager. “After our customer’s disappointment from competing solutions, we received the opportunity to introduce the Wavion solution, whose performance surpassed the customer’s expectations. Furthermore, the open architecture offered by Wavion enables the customer to select any of-the-shelf standard 802.11a CPE and thus reduce the overall solution’s cost”.
Wavion’s unique and powerful WBS-2400 and WBS-5800 spatially adaptive beamforming base stations provide extended range, higher throughput, and much better NLOS coverage. As a result, unlike more conventional equipment, they do not require costly high towers and can be easily installed on rooftops and still provide very good coverage and penetration. Moreover, their flexible architecture built around two types of base stations – omni-directional and sector – and their ruggedized and weather-proof enclosure add significantly to their unique value offering to Telecom Operators.
Wavion is transforming the metro Wi-Fi and rural markets with a new category of spatially adaptive base stations. The company’s digital beamforming and SDMA technologies are the first and only to resolve the significant performance, penetration and profitability challenges facing large scale metro and rural deployments. Wavion is privately held and backed by world-class investors including Tel Aviv-based Elron Electronic Industries Ltd. (TASE: ELRN), and BRM Capital. Wavion headquarters are located in Yoqne’am, Israel and the company has offices in Miami, Florida, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Moscow, Russia, and New Delhi, India.
