Alvarion® WiMAX Deployment Offers Flexibility To Deliver E-education, Video Surveillance, Hotspots And More

About Krosno Municipality Krosno, today ranked 6th for quality of living in Poland, has a population of 50,000. Back in 2004, town officials sought to provide broadband to city schools, in order to prioritize an e-education initiative. However, since the incumbent operator providing limited ADSL services to parts of the town could not guarantee speeds or Quality of Service (QoS), the municipality decided to build its own network, using funds allocated by the European Community through the ZPORR (Regional Innovation Strategy and Knowledge Transfer) organization. The challenge To quickly build an effective network, taking into account Krosno limitations on cost, deployment time, and strict regulations prohibiting digging and trenching in the heart of the city. A wireless network was the obvious answer, particularly since Krosno was given ten 3.5 MHz channels in the 3.5 GHz band as part of the Polish government's efforts to encourage telecom development. Evaluations of wireless networks started in 2004 to find the vendor providing the best service and offering equipment certified by the WiMAX Forum® and field-proven to withstand the Arctic-like Krosno winter temperatures, which can reach -30ºC with winds up to 180 km/hour. The solution Alvarion's initial network in Krosno, comprised of one, four-sector BreezeMAX® macro base station used to provide broadband services to 13 schools, went live in 2006. Municipal officials soon saw the enormous flexibility of the ubiquitous network, and quickly started using it for the delivery of an entirely new video surveillance solution to the local police force. By adding two sectors to each base station and attaching a CPE to each camera, Alvarion's network now links five cameras in the city center and two cameras in the grounds of schools, streaming images at speeds of up to 3 Mbps. Additionally, the solution includes a nomadic camera attached to a police vehicle, which sends images back to the control rooms immediately from the scene of an incident. Alvarion's network now links five cameras in the city center and two cameras in the grounds of schools, streaming images at speeds of up to 3 Mbps Following the successes of this CCTV project, Krosno has further extended the network to provide data access to various administrative buildings, as well as offering hotspots in six locations across the city. The local utility company (responsible for fresh water, waste water and sewage) also uses the network to interconnect buildings with data and VoIP, as well as support monitoring and control by connecting supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) equipment. The result Krosno is just one of many municipalities and operators around the world that entered into the WiMAX world with defined targets and then realized that WiMAX networks can be utilized for a range of other activities. Quick and relatively inexpensive to build and operate, WiMAX is an ideal solution to reach areas not covered by existing wired infrastructure. Furthermore, as seen in the Krosno story, WiMAX networks can be easily expanded to high demand areas and enable the fast connection of new customers. For Krosno, future plans for their WiMAX network include: Extending the e-education deployment to cover all 35 schools, all kindergartens and libraries in the city. Providing VOIP services to enable free internal calls between all administration and education buildings. Extending support to up to 30 hotspots and providing municipal content over this free network. Introducing a two-tier voice and data residential access service offering basic services free of charge and extended services for a fee.

The recorded CCTV images are transmitted via Alvarion's wireless network to a central control roomAbout Basic SecurityA leader in the field of security solutions in the Ivory Coast, Basic Security provides its customers with a wide range of services including; video surveillance, monitoring using alarm systems, fleet management, and geolocation VIP protection. Basic Security supports its customers from the initial planning stages through customizing the solution, installation and ongoing support.The challengeIn order to provide CCTV and security services to the residents of Abidjan, Basic Security was using an existing network based on wired lines. However, the company faced a number of challenges including the high cost of leased lines; low quality services due to limited bandwidth of only 128 Kbps, and insufficient coverage to provide connectivity to all the critical areas in Abidjan. As a result, Basic Security sought a wireless solution that could answer these challenges and enable them to improve public safety and security for the residents of Abidjan.The solutionBasic Security selected Alvarion because of their good market reputation, product quality and availability and high-capacity solutions. The wireless network was built using the BreezeACCESS VL and SU54 subscriber unit to provide point-multipoint coverage and the BreezeNET B300 for high-capacity point-to-point access. The network also includes several analog cameras positioned in key locations across Abidjan. The recorded images are transmitted in high-quality to a central control room where they are monitored and used to identify incidents that jeopardise the city's security and safety.The resultAlvarion's cost-effective network has enabled Basic Security to offer improved security services to the residents of Abidjan and as a result, public safety has increased significantly. The high quality video images transmitted to the control room have enabled the police to catch many offenders including several men who broke into a football stadium and some who were attempting to assault a woman. In addition to security services, Basic Security is now also able to provide connectivity to businesses that were previously outside the coverage area and could not benefit from broadband access.

Alvarion's CCTV Transmission System Assists Parchim Utility Provider In Wireless Surveillance

About Stadtwerke ParchimStadtwerke Parchim is the sole utilities provider for the German town of Parchim. They deliver electricity, gas, hot water and water treatment services to the town's 40,000 residents, 40% of which they manufacture themselves.About Loft-NetLoft-Net is a local systems integrator in Northern Germany, focused on providing the full suite of services for wireless broadband in rural areas. Loft-Net is also a certified partner of world leading Mobotix video surveillance solutions. They currently supply wireless Internet services to eight local municipalities and are expanding quickly.The challengeIn order to provide utility services to the entire city of Parchim, Stadwerke has located electricity substations, as well as administrative offices and premises throughout the city. These facilities must be monitored at all times to ensure smooth operations. Stadwerke also wanted the various substations and premises to be connected through a network to support data communications and video monitoring of all substations continuously. Because the town is situated in the northern region of Germany, its facilities are often disturbed by harsh weather conditions and subsequent technical difficulties such as damaged underground cabling that can interrupt communications. These problems must be solved as quickly as possible for Stadwerke to maintain its high level of service.The solutionAfter checking other vendor alternatives, Stadwerke opted for the Alvarion portfolio due to the solution's simple configuration, robustness and the attractive pay-as-you-grow business model. The solution, deployed by system integrator Loft-Net, consisted of Alvarion's BreezeACCESS VL carrier-class, point-to-multipoint solution for wireless broadband outdoor connectivity. The BreezeACCESS VL wireless base station provides 240 Mbps bandwidth and features Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) capabilities. Teamed with BreezeNET B wireless bridges that provide a powerful and cost-effective wireless link to backhaul the point-to-multipoint network to the Internet, they set up a city-wide network that can be accessed instantly.The resultWith the Alvarion solution in place, Stadwerke Parchim are able to monitor their network of utilities substations at all times and in any weather conditions. They are able to troubleshoot damages quickly and effectively to deliver utilities with maximum up-time to the people of Parchim
