Pennsylvania City Contracts Wi4Net for Citywide Surveillance Network

8/28/08 - Wi4Net, a division of CelPlan Technologies, Inc. and a leading provider of integrated wireless broadband and video surveillance solutions, today announced it was awarded a five-year contract with the City of Reading for the deployment and maintenance of a citywide video surveillance network. The first phase of the project implements 22 cameras at locations throughout the City. The system backbone is provided through a hybrid fiber-wireless solution offered in collaboration with MAW Communications. The initial phase also includes a mobility overlay in 4.9 GHz to provide for access to patrol vehicles.

“We are implementing this video surveillance system as part of a larger effort to reduce crime in our City, and we are extremely excited with the broad support in our community,” said Chief William Heim with the City of Reading Police Department. “CelPlan was able to offer a perfect balance between cost and performance with their hybrid fiber-wireless backbone approach which allowed us to optimize our grant funds allocated for the project.”

The project utilizes Wi4Net’s FlexiVideoTM product, incorporating the FlexiRadioTM wireless communications system. The solution features a multi-radio architecture which is crucial in scalable citywide video applications to assure high system throughput and a superior level of predictability. The wireless camera units are provided with leading camera technology offering 35X optical zoom. Each camera streams real-time high resolution video to a state-of-the-art centralized monitoring and storage system, used for viewing, archiving and management.

“We are extremely pleased with the award of this contract,” noted Jasper Bruinzeel, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Wi4Net. “Although wireless video systems are becoming more common, the hybrid fiber-wireless backbone design and 4.9 GHz based mobility overlay make this network a showcase in North America.”

The City of Reading is the county seat of Berks County, Pennsylvania and the center of the Greater Reading Area. The metro area has a population of over 400,000. The City of Reading is the fifth largest city in Pennsylvania after Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, and Erie.
