Yoqne’am, Israel, September 2, 2008 — Wavion™, a company transforming the Metro and Rural Wi-Fi market with a new category of Wi-Fi Base Station and Leadcom Integrated Solutions, a leading international provider of innovative telecommunication solutions announced today the successful deployment of a comprehensive video surveillance project in the municipality of Ness Ziona, Israel. . Wavion delivered the high-speed wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi) using its advanced WBS-2400 base stations.
Wavion’s powerful WBS-2400 spatially adaptive beamforming base stations provide extended range and higher throughput connectivity to standards-based Wi-Fi clients. Wavion’s Wi-Fi solution requires one third fewer units than other competing Access Points (APs) to cover the same area, with superior indoor penetration and fewer dead spots. The superior Wi-Fi performance makes Wavion an ideal infrastructure solution for video surveillance.
The use of a wireless connectivity offers significant savings and simplifies the deployment and time to market of a video surveillance solution. There is no need to lay cumbersome cables throughout the city and cameras can easily be mounted at any position.
“We are determined in our pursuit of our vision of a city clean of crime, vandalism and theft. The video surveillance system plays a huge part in furthering this goal” said Yaron Levi, Security Manager from the Ness Ziona Municipality. “The wireless solution that Leadcom and Wavion offered was more cost effective than building a new wireline infrastructure, and allowed us to provide the necessary coverage for all of our strategic locations with a higher bandwidth. We were positively surprised with the extent of the success of this project, which was significantly more than we originally expected”.
“After thorough testing, we have selected Wavion Wi-Fi solution due to its superior performance”, said Yoel Bar Gil, Leadcom CTO. “Wavion’s WBS-2400 base stations allowed us to deploy the network very quickly and cost effectively.”
“We are honored to be selected with Leadcom for the Ness Ziona public safety project” said Eran Kaplan Wavion’s Executive VP Sales and Marketing. ”The superior performance in terms of coverage and high bandwidth makes the WBS-2400 base station a key enabler for wireless public safety solutions.”
