Belgium Antwerp Police selects Radwin’s JET PtMP to build video surveillance network

Antwerp police in Belgium has selected Radwin's JET Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) broadband wireless solutions to build a video surveillance network to help fight crime and terror attacks in the city and safeguard citizens.

With Radwin's JET PtMP system, the Antwerp police can quickly and cost-effectively set-up pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) video cameras in virtually any location.

As part of Antwerp police's Safe City project, Belgium-based system integrators, Exclusive Networks and VCS Observation, were tasked to perform project design and implementation.

Exclusive Networks Service and Solutions manager Wim Simons said: "More and more police forces globally use high definition cameras for facial and licence plate recognition, and therefore they need greater throughput.

“Radwin's JET system fits the bill, providing the highest industry capacity of up to 750Mbps per base station so that transmission quality is superb. There's no network downtime and zero latency and jitter.

“The police in Antwerp have come to rely on the Radwin-powered video surveillance network to ensure the safety of citizens and visitors."

During public events, Radwin's system is capable of providing connectivity for nomadic video surveillance deployments and links several of the PTZ cameras to the police control centre.

The live video feeds transmitted by Radwin's JET Beamforming wireless broadband systems will enable Antwerp Police to detect and respond to criminal activity in real-time or use the feed for future investigation.
