Crowley’s yacht yard leverages on Proxim’s solutions to implement a cost-effective video surveillance deployment

BackgroundCrowley's Yacht Yard has been Chicago's premier full-service land yachting facility since 1978.This facility handles both sail and powerboats of all shapes and sizes. They have indoor and outdoor storage options for over 1,400 boats.Challenge: Crowley's Yacht Yard wanted to provide - Broadband wireless access for boaters and employees- Security for their facility by enabling full-time video surveillance SolutionProxim's Tsunami™ MP.11 was deployed to enable round-the-clock premise and property surveillance at Crowley's. Sixteen IP cameras were used to capture real-time video images. Video data backhaul was achieved through the Tsunami MP.11. To provide Crowley's customers and employees with broadband wireless access, Proxim's ORiNOCO® AP-4000MR dual-radio outdoor mesh access points and ORiNOCO AP-700 indoor access points were also deployed.Why Proxim?Key requirements of a surveillance system are rapid deployment of the system, quality of service and high bandwidth. Proxim Tsunami MP.11 supports voice, video and data for both fixed and mobile environments. It also offers IEEE 802.16e (WiMAX) QoS, providing as many as eight classes of service with up to eight service flows per class. The MP.11 system also boasts an over the air data rate of up to 54 Mbps. The dual radio architecture of ORiNOCO AP-4000MR doubled the capacity by separating the mesh backbone traffic from edge access traffic. Seamless integration between the ORiNOCO indoor and outdoor access points enabled Crowley's existing Wi-Fi network to extend outdoors. Proxim wireless products provided Crowley's Yacht Yard a highly reliable, secure and a high performance network that was quick to install and was cost-effective.

Proxim’s wireless solutions help address the different challenges in healthcare

Healthcare Challenges and Wireless Solutions In no other industry are the implications of connectivity clearer than in healthcare. Patient histories, medication information, recent research, test results - each of these components brings a critical piece to holistic patient care. Yet increasingly there is a diverse staff of medical professionals specialising in each of these areas, whose advice must be culled to best diagnose and treat the patient. In addition, the condition of the patient and the individual caregivers change around the clock. Communication and accuracy have become matters of life and death. Wireless networks bring a whole new way of accruing and utilising medical information. With Wi-Fi and broadband wireless, medical professionals in multiple locations can collect, access and share information instantly and accurately - transforming modern healthcare. Wireless OffersMobile freedom, complete data access anywhere, real time information sharing, enterprise class network security and reliability Applications for HealthcareOn demand communications between doctors and medical staff, real time patient charting, connecting satellite clinics, safer medication delivery, more productive respiratory care, better materials management, prescription automation, transferring files from mobile healthcare units. Transferring Files from Mobile Healthcare Units The challenge For many rural patients, the only access to specialised medical treatment such as MRIs is through visits by mobile healthcare units. For urban residents, workplaces offer mobile mammograms and dental cleanings as convenience services to employees. These ‘labs on wheels' provide needed diagnosis and examinations that otherwise may not happen on a timely basis, or at all. The challenge occurs when the mobile units return to the hospital. Transferring patient files and digital images over a dial up connection is impossible, due to the size of the files. Physically transporting digital media between the van and hospital is inconvenient and poses the risk of misplacing or damaging the data inadvertently. The solutionA wireless bridge between the mobile unit and the hospital offers a perfect alternative. Operating at speeds of up to 860 Mbps, wireless bridges transfer digital images and patient records in a matter of minutes, not hours. And patient privacy (per HIPAA requirement) is ensured with strict security and authentication methods. The productsTsunami Point to Point, Tsunami TM MP-8100

Sunrise Wireless chooses Proxim equipment to unwire the San Francisco Bay
Sunrise Wireless chooses Proxim equipment to unwire the San Francisco Bay

Sunrise Wireless, a pioneer in the development of wireless broadband systems for the maritime industry, has deployed Proxim Wireless’ equipment to unwire the San Francisco Bay. Sunrise Wireless  deployed a system that uses a combination of Proxim’s point-to-point wireless backhaul, license-free  WiMAX, and Wi-Fi® products for an end-to-end broadband wireless network that enables wireless connectivity for vessels throughout 62 square miles of the Bay.    The system, which is designed to service all users of the Bay - from the researcher in a small boat collecting marine samples to the commuter traveling to work at 40 mph in the comfort of a high speed ferry - is called SFOWetNet. The SFOWetNet consists of two networks sharing a common backhaul that overlay one another. One network is designed to serve commercial vessels, and the second provides Wi-Fi access  for recreational boaters throughout the central and western parts of San Francisco Bay. These two  networks include:   WiMAX for commercial vessels - Provides high-performance, unlicensed WiMAX connectivity to enable reliable connectivity for commercial vessels, including ferries, tugboats, tankers, cargo and dinner cruise vessels as well as public safety vessels such as police, fire and search and rescue boats. The network currently provides broadband Internet connectivity and in the near future will provide wireless VoIP and wireless real-time streaming video for the delivery of news and entertainment directly the vessels on the move.      WiFi for the recreational boater - Provides Wi-Fi connectivity for all recreational vessels, enabling all boats to receive Wi-Fi access via an hourly, daily or monthly subscription. A laptop is all that is needed to enjoy Wi-Fi service up to a half mile from shore, and longer distances are possible with the use of a range-extender.   The wireless network coverage area stretches from the Bay Bridge to the San Rafael Bridge, as well as from Alcatraz/Angel Island all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge. “We have utilised Proxim’s end-to-end wireless systems for maritime deployments in the past – including our deployment with the Washington State Ferry (WSF) system – and I believe the Proxim solution is the best for marine broadband networks,” said Milton Gregory, President of Sunrise Wireless. “Not only does the system just work, but Proxim is the only place I can get a complete Wi-Fi, WiMAX and point-to-point wireless backhaul solution in one place. Proxim has the tools needed to enable high speed roaming applications combined with the ability to provide high-bandwidth wireless connectivity over water, which is an exceptionally demanding RF environment. No other technology is as cost effective for this application."   In order to cover the San Francisco Bay with wireless connectivity, Sunrise Wireless utilises the following Proxim Wireless products: Proxim Tsunami™ MP.11 5054R and 5054R-LR – The Tsunami MP.11 5054R-LR base stations and subscriber units provide license-free WiMAX connectivity from commercial vessels all the way to the shore from within the 62 square mile coverage area.      Proxim ORiNOCO® AP-4000 MR-LR – The ORiNOCO AP-4000s provide long-range Wi-Fi coverage from the shore to about a half mile into the water for laptop users and further for those using a range  extender, enabling recreational boats to connect via Wi-Fi. Proxim Tsunami®.GX – The Tsunami.GX radios provide the wireless backhaul  from the WiMAX and Wi-Fi radios back to the network operations centre at 200 Paul Avenue. All in all, there is 40 miles of wireless backhaul involved. "Proxim has the tools needed to enable high speed roaming applications, combined with the ability to provide high-bandwidth wireless connectivity over water" So much more than just wireless access    In addition to wireless Internet connectivity, Proxim’s wireless network will soon enable  commercial vessels to utilise wireless VoIP no matter where they are in the Bay - which is advantageous in many parts of the Bay that have poor cell phone reception. In addition, Proxim’s WiMAX network provides enough bandwidth to stream video to these vessels, enabling ferries to stream real-time news, sports and financial video to passengers, stream video surveillance back to the shore, and more. Commercial vessels require a Proxim device that can be easily installed onboard (a “subscriber unit”) to connect to the unlicensed  WiMAX network. Once installed, commercial vessels can receive 12 to 36 Mbps wireless  connection throughout the Bay.   Recreational vessels do not require any additional equipment to access the Wi-Fi network  other than their Wi-Fi enabled laptop or smartphone. Once in range of the SFOWetNet Wi-Fi  network, users can connect to the network, open their browsers, then log on via a secure  sign-on page (similar to logging in at coffee shops or other hotspots). “Sunrise Wireless has always been an exciting partner, because they specialise in creating  wireless networks in one of the most difficult environments – over water,” said Robb Henshaw, Senior Director of Global Marketing & Communications for Proxim Wireless. “At Proxim, we know that people want wireless connectivity wherever they are. Together with Sunrise Wireless, we know that people want wireless connectivity wherever they are. Together with  Sunrise Wireless, we look forward to continually enabling people to connect in more and more locations.”
