AirMax5X benefits wireless IP surveillance networks

Technews Industry Guide - Wireless 2015 Industrial Wireless

Video surveillance has grown increasingly popular around the word. It has extended from office environments to production environments, from indoor to outdoor, and from local to remote. Due to these changes, video surveillance networks have had to adapt to multiple access scenarios and even to harsh environments.

With the development of wireless technology and in line with industry trends, WLAN can provide wireless video surveillance access to commercial buildings and office environments and can be used to implement remote video surveillance at long distances for places where routing cables is inconvenient.

Benefits of a wireless IP surveillance network

Eliminates the need for costly installation (with no cable) and therefore, with less cable to install, project time frames are significantly reduced and business disruption is minimised.

Since no expensive fixed lines are required, it can lower transmission costs. Surveillance systems can easily be extended using wireless IP to migrate to a cost-effective full digital system solution. Remote monitoring allows the surveillance of distant locations over large distances.

Allpronix provides the AirMax 5X (5GHz high throughput outdoor CPE with PoE pass-through) to the local market to fulfil the high bandwidth demands of video surveillance applications. Furthermore, its network resources can be shared with other services to reduce deployment costs.

Long distance high-speed transmission (10 km/20 km and 300 Mbps) with PoE pass-through

With the integrated directional 2T2R 14 dBi 5 GHz MIMO antenna and high output power AirMax5X/5X-20 signals can be transmitted over distances up to 10/20 km. The high transmission power and high gain provides longer distance and better signal; in field tests throughput of up to 77 Mbps has been achieved at 10 km.

The built-in advanced 48 V PoE output (output power up to 30 W), for one IPCAM or another AirMax 5X, eases deployment since less cabling and no additional power sources are required.

Multiple operating modes: AirMax 5X can function as an AP, WDS station, WDS + AP, client infrastructure, WISP router or AP router.

Bandwidth management and applications

AirMax 5X provides the capabilities to control user bandwidth and can define varying classes of connection speed for different subscriptions, ensuring smooth data and video transmission.

Suitable applications include business campus, school campus, ports and harbours, stadia, gas pipelines, highway and road monitoring, coastal defence, substations and prisons.
