Video backhaul simply refers to the process of transporting the video footage from cameras located in remote locations to a central location for viewing or storage. This central location could be several feet to several miles and may in fact be in a different country or continent through Internet backhaul. RfWeL specializes in wireless surveillance cameras offering long-rangewireless video backhaul.
Wireless Surveillance w/ 3G Cellular Data for Video Backhaul
Wireless surveillance has inherent advantages over wired surveillance.
Rapid, low-cost deployment and redeployment alleviating the need for disruptive network buildout.
Easy upgradeability of remote surveillance system as new technology emerges or becomes cost-effective. This is especially the case for 3G cellular data backhaul that has seen improvements in speed, latency, reliability and coverage. Current EVDO RevA & HSPA networks are a great leap above 1xRTT/EDGE networks and future LTE/ WiMax networks will only require a change in video backhaul hardware in lieu of an upgrade to the entire system. Similarly wireless ip cameras may be replaced without reconfiguring the network more
Convenience of untethering management and storage servers as well as monitoring stations from geographic proximity of cameras. This could be as simple as a mom monitoring the babysitter from work or a corporate security department monitoring remote assets from a central location. In fact RfWeL is considering solutions through our subsidiary and affiliates in low-labor-cost developing countries where companies could outsource quasi-real-time video monitoring much as they do most other IT functions.
Redundancy and resilience. As we have seen in the recent past wireless systems are more robust to infrastructure disruptions from natural or manmade causes. Even when AP's & repeater nodes are disrupted it is often much simpler to revive the system, reconfigure or reroute the backhaul path more
