Ipswich town’s CCTV network, which has recently undergone a major network overhaul, now features high definition imaging and video - thanks to Infinit Wireless, the global leader in fixed broadband wireless connectivity.
Ipswich Borough Council said that the CCTV platform upgrade will help in meeting the town’s demand for modern surveillance and high definition monitoring.
Infinet Wireless’ InfiMAN 2x2 Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) and InfiLINK 2x2 Point-to-Point (P2P) solutions were delivered via a fixed broadband wireless platform. It delivers a much-improved video-surveillance network that delivers HD real-time video streams and images.
“The previous video-surveillance infrastructure we had in place throughout the town was outdated and we were merely coping with our mission-critical needs. After consultations with various parties, we quickly realised that we needed a complete overhaul of the existing network. As a local authority, keeping costs down whilst making sure a high quality of service and reliability is achieved, is the balance we were looking to achieve,” said Debbie Clements, Emergency Service Centre Manager at Ipswich Borough Council.
“Infinet Wireless’ solutions were an excellent choice as they were not only very quick to deploy, but were affordable and easy to manage. The safety of our local community and visitors to the area is one of IBC’s seven key priorities, so by upgrading our network we are ensuring we can monitor and indeed keep them all safe around the clock. We are already seeing huge benefits from the high reliability of the new platform and the overall video quality.”
