Siklu Inc., a supplier of mmWave solutions, has announced that its radios have been selected by Israel Police as their main wireless fibre solution. These systems were selected for nationwide deployments as well as temporary events for the purpose of backhauling HD video surveillance systems and advanced sensors. The Israel Police, similar to police forces all over the world, face a considerable challenge when it comes to deploying a camera array at a city’s main centres within a short timeframe. Adding to the difficulties in securing these parades, is the legacy communication infrastructure in the old rock-based, mountainous terrain city of Jerusalem. When a wireless communication option is considered, the challenge of a dense urban environment packed with thousands of interfering Wi-Fi networks, needs to be addressed. Putting on a Gay Pride parade in Jerusalem, the holiest city in the world presented an additional challenge – how fast the city’s technology partners, MER Group, SMBIT and Siklu would be able to design, supply and install the very small mmWave radios at the strategic locations marked by the security experts. The surveillance cameras serve as a deterrent, as potentially disruptive groups are aware that they are being filmed High-quality video streams Operating in the abundant 70GHz band, with 5GHz of continues spectrum, Siklu’s radios were not constrained by the costly and time-consuming frequency survey associated with legacy wireless solutions. At each location, the Police placed 2 HD cameras and simply deployed the Siklu radios back to back, eliminating the need for traditional multiple powering and switching devices. Simplified deployment was enabled by the Siklu EtherHaul radios with their integrated switch and dual PoE out. At each pole and rooftop along the parade route, a single EH-710TX radio was able to power the complete pack of cameras and radios. With these features and capabilities, the whole network was deployed in only 1 day. On the day of the parade, the event gathered four times the number of people (~20K) attending in recent years, and the Police commanders were more than satisfied with the quality of video streams arriving in real-time to the control rooms. The live, high quality video streams enabled real-time response from the Police to any possible provocations. The cameras also serve as a deterrent, as potentially disruptive groups are aware that they are being filmed. Siklu’s mmWave technology, carefully tailored for our security networks, was definitely the right call to make" Wireless fibre links Yoav Ludmer, SMBIT’s CEO stated that “for all city events, we should provide adequate safety measures for the huge crowds expected. The Israel Police tested and deployed Siklu’s mmWave radios a few months prior to the Gay Pride Parade in another sensitive part of Jerusalem, and the solution proved to be rock solid.” For the first time in Israel, Siklu’s mmWave wireless fibre links were deployed in hours to support Police surveillance cameras and sensors. “After experiencing the high-quality video cameras enabled by Siklu’s technology and integrated by the MER Group and SMBIT, we challenged them to deliver a complex solution in very little time for a very sensitive temporary event and the result was impressive” said Israel’s Police Chief Technology Consultant, Avi Gohar. “Siklu’s mmWave technology, carefully tailored for our security networks, was definitely the right call to make. It proved to be a real game changer for us, and indeed for the city.”
Siklu Inc., a global supplier of mmWave solutions, has announced that its wireless radios have been deployed in the City of Lincoln, United Kingdom. These systems provide 14 high capacity wireless data links in support of a modern IP networked CCTV system, primarily to provide surveillance for the city and public spaces. The new wireless network is part of the Vision 2020 project announced last year. Vision 2020 is a three-year plan to build a smart city improving the city’s infrastructure, roadways and parks, and includes investing in a new transportation hub. Previously, the cities CCTV system was transmitted back on traditional analogue fibre circuits, these were both costly and bandwidth limiting. To install the wireless network, the City of Lincoln Council worked closely with security systems integrator Videcom Security Ltd, a company specialising in large multisite Town and City Centre public safety CCTV systems. Videcom chose Siklu as their wireless partner following previous successes in Watford, London Borough Richmond, Ipswich and Cambridge City where Siklu hardware had already been successfully deployed, demonstrating the best cost and performance solution. Ultralow latency combined with high reliability and accurate forecasted uptime and resilience, added weight to the tendered design and installation mmWave EtherHaul E-band radios The project involved installing Siklu’s mmWave EtherHaul E-band radios to deliver 1 Gbps full duplex capacity for the main backhaul resilient ring over the 80 GHz frequency. Utilising Siklu’s Layer 2 switch functionality to deliver resiliency and diversity routing, the network provides ‘mission critical’ up-time with automatic fail-over. In addition, Videcom installed Siklu’s 60 GHz V-band frequency radios to connect 300 cameras at the street level including city wide Urban Traffic Cameras. Ultralow latency combined with high reliability and accurate forecasted uptime and resilience, added weight to the tendered design and installation. Significant cost savings on transmission and reduction in maintenance have also helped to reduce the total lifetime cost of the CCTV system. Videcom city-wide CCTV surveillance “At Videcom, we have always been impressed with the level of support and in particular, Siklu’s commitment to training of our engineers and the ongoing direct support offered,” said Bill Mead, Managing Director of Videcom Security. “We are pleased to work closely with Siklu and are looking forward to the next project.” The recent project with the City of Lincoln Council is part of our commitment to providing the most reliable, interference free mmWave technology"The extended CCTV camera coverage, including the creation of a Safe Zone, utilising Siklu radios connecting high specification Dahua cameras is already providing significant results, both proactively and reactively. Spare transmission bandwidth is allowing the planning of smart services to the City as well as Wi-Fi connectivity and car park data sharing. “We’re pleased to have had such a successful working relationship with Videcom Security on numerous projects throughout the United Kingdom,” said Eyal Assa, Siklu’s CEO. “The recent project with the City of Lincoln Council is part of our commitment to providing the most reliable, interference free mmWave technology available to the market for Smart City and surveillance system networks.”
The 9th BRICS Summit was successfully held in Xiamen, China from September 3rd-5th, 2017, where leaders of the five member-countries were in attendance. Building on its success in providing a comprehensive security solution for the G20 Hangzhou Summit in 2016, the 9th BRICS Summit was yet another accomplishment for Dahua. The 2017 BRICS Xiamen Summit demanded high-level protection for national leaders from Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. As Xiamen’s city centre is located on an island, the security system required comprehensive surveillance of all roads leading into the area, also known as the “Four Bridges and One Tunnel” network.Dahua provided 1723 bullet cameras, 379 PTZ cameras, 226 vehicle checkpoint cameras, 116 Face Recognition cameras, 10 mobile 4G PTZ cameras Protection through Dahua technology In addition to roads leading into the city, routes to and from the airport, hotels, and the Xiamen International Conference & Exhibition Center needed to be protected as well. A solution of this proportion would also require an advanced, automated, and centralised system to ensure efficient, coordinated responses. With its cutting-edge IP camera, video cloud, network storage, and transmission technologies, Dahua was up to the task of securing Xiamen and the BRICS venues. In total, Dahua provided 1723 bullet cameras, 379 PTZ cameras, 226 vehicle checkpoint cameras, 116 Face Recognition cameras, 10 mobile 4G PTZ cameras, and many other advanced Dahua products and services used in various areas of the city. The BRICS security command centre, administered by the Public Security Department of the Xiamen, was fitted with a Dahua visual emergency dispatch and command system. The centre’s large display wall was stitched together with Dahua edgeless HD LED panels, enabling a complete picture of all units under command center control during the meeting, greatly simplifying control and responses. The security system surrounding the Xiamen International Conference & Exhibition Center as well as the visual emergency dispatch and command system in the security command center both adopted a full range of Dahua video surveillance and display solutions. Dahua employed advanced technologies such as intelligent analysis and big data, to increase the efficiency of emergency command and management capabilities Live video security on the road A customised Dahua Mobile Solution with GPS positioning and in-vehicle wireless image transmission system was installed on 228 patrol cars and 72 special cars from the Xiamen Public Security Bureau, which was used to clear the way for Summit leaders. This provided the command centre with a continuous live overview of all areas while providing support for the handling of various emergencies. Dahua contributed to the security of other key areas including the Xiamen Airport, train station, ferry piers, and police checkpoints In order to secure “Four Bridges and One Tunnel” access points, Dahua employed advanced technologies such as intelligent analysis, big data, and video analytics to significantly increase the efficiency of emergency command and information technology management capabilities, providing uninterrupted HD video surveillance and smart road event monitoring on bridges and tunnels. In addition, Dahua also contributed to the security of other key areas including the Xiamen Airport, train station, ferry piers, and police checkpoints. In surrounding Haicang and Jimei districts, Dahua constructed video surveillance on routes and sites which held key activities in the city, achieving full coverage of places such as guarded routes, main roads, key sites, as well as surrounding areas and regions of elevated risk. Dahua securing public safety Dahua also played a role in safeguarding conference-related affairs such as catering, accommodation, and travel. The hotels in which leaders stayed in and surrounding areas were upgraded to HD systems in a short amount of time, making sure the leaders were secure while they rested during the Summit. The mobile law enforcement surveillance system assisted the Xiamen Market Supervision Commission in guaranteeing the provision of safe food during the Summit. The three day BRICS Summit concluded without a hitch. National leaders and their delegations were able to smoothly move about the city and attend the conference while Dahua products prevented threats through a vast network of smart video technologies. In addition, the large-scale project significantly upgraded Xiamen’s city surveillance system and provided a long-term foundation for not only public security-related operations, but also broader public projects such as the Xiamen Wireless Image Transmission System.
