Siklu further expanded its presence in the video surveillance market in 2015. The company released the world’s smallest outdoor Gbps radio to address the issue of densified coverage, which results in the need for high capacity connectivity in surveillance networks – a trend that has snowballed in past years.
Growing video surveillance networks demand greater bandwidth capacity
Developments in video analytics and resolutions, requiring high-quality video at the surveillance network operations centre (NOC), further increase today’s bandwidth demand. This demand is rapidly outstripping capacity required for today's advanced video networks; it further densifies networks, intensifies radio interference and degrades video quality. A domino effect is in play here. In order to support this capacity growth, a new technology supporting the video network business case must be utilised.
The incredible growth in video surveillance networks for public safety witnessed in 2015 is showing no signs of slowing down. This proliferation creates an exceptionally challenging 2016 for sub 5GHz solutions, prone to poor Quality of Service (QoS) in dense networks.
As evolving surveillance technology already surpasses infrastructure capabilities, and causes network overloads, and as analogue cameras are nearly extinct, this exponential demand for capacity will inevitably spill over into the next year.
Supporting network density
Faced with these challenges, network operators will have to improve network capacity and QoS. A cost-effective resolution is to upgrade network connectivity with a novel breed of wireless technology, millimetre wave (mmWave), which is the next unlicensed band. mmWave radios provide fibre-like performance with ample capacity for future-predicted density.
Siklu is a fast growing company with a double digit CAGR and business is looking great for 2016.
A main challenge in 2015 was to expand presence in the video surveillance market. Today, it’s no secret that Siklu’s mmWave solutions effectively resolve the video surveillance industry’s acute pain points. Siklu supports network density and also ultra-high camera resolutions, and enables reliable, flawless video. Today, we have reached an inflection point in the video surveillance market.
In 2016, Siklu will continue to empower the video surveillance market with its comprehensive portfolio of products, highly capable of relieving the 5GHz crowded networks, enabling reliable, interference-free transmission and absolute fibre-like quality with multi-gigabit capacities.
