U.K. Town Upgrades Video Network
Tuesday, March 17, 2020 | Comments

Ipswich, United Kingdom, selected Infinet Wireless to overhaul its closed-circuit TV (CCTV) system to enable high-definition (HD) imaging and video. Ipswich Borough Council (IBC), responsible for governing the town which is home to 140,000 people, required an upgrade to its CCTV platform to meet modern surveillance demands for HD recording and monitoring the town center’s daily activities accurately and dynamically.

Infinet Wireless’ point-to-multipoint (P2MP) and point-to-point (P2P) solutions were selected to deliver, via a fixed broadband wireless platform, a much-improved video-surveillance network to significantly reduce operational costs while delivering HD real-time video streams and images. Dozens of Infinet Wireless’ industry-leading base stations and remote subscriber terminals have been deployed so far across the town to ensure seamless connectivity to all remote sites.

“The previous video-surveillance infrastructure we had in place throughout the town was outdated and we were merely coping with our mission-critical needs,” said Debbie Clements, emergency service center manager at Ipswich Borough Council. “After consultations with various parties, we quickly realized that we needed a complete overhaul of the existing network. As a local authority, keeping costs down whilst making sure a high quality of service and reliability is achieved, is the balance we were looking to achieve.”
