US highway project deployed ALCON wireless transmission systems

US highway project deployed ALCON wireless transmission systems

Editor / Provider: ALCON | Updated: 10/2/2014 | Article type: Infrastructure

Requirements and challenges:
The highway office is looking for a wireless solution which could provide real time video surveillance of the highway. There are two phases of this project: 1) Monitoring the construction sites, 2) monitoring the traffic when the construction is done.

In the phase 1, the office demanded real-time monitoring over the four construction sites where no power is available. Thus, a set of solar-powered system which includes the solar panel, charge controller, a timer and a waterproof box for these devices is taking into consideration.

In the phase 2, the system kept on for traffic monitoring once the construction is completed. The purpose is to allow the highway officers get the clear images on highway.

Solution:
The local system integrator selected two models from ALCON: APE-5005 and ALINK-5801a. There are 4 pairs of the APE-5005 gathering at a middle location, each of them connects to IP speed dome by a switch. Then, one set of ALINK-5801a works as a backhaul to send all the video streaming back to the office.

For phase 1, the system integrator had to conduct a site survey to understand the distances of each site, total power consumption and the condition of installation (line-of-sight and height).

They put a timer in the waterproof box which controls to solar charge time and work time, so the system would stop working around sunset.

It becomes easier for phase 2 as the system has been ready to keep working for a long time. All the highway office and system integrator need to decide is using solar system or electricity as power supply on the highway.

Performance feedback:
There's no integration issue as long as all devices are using Ethernet port. The traditional coaxial cable was for analog system and its cable length is limited within 100 meters. As the technology of IP camera is much advanced nowadays, wireless surveillance should be much easier. This is why all the WiFi products from ALCON were designed with such concept for everyone.

Also, as the labor cost is high in the USA, it is very important for system integrator finds a ready-to-use wireless solution which could connect all types of IP camera simply with a switch. Furthermore, the user-friendly interface could save up to 50% of time when the workers are working on the systems configuration.

Thai police deploy ALCON wireless transmission device for city traffic surveillance

Thai police deploy ALCON wireless transmission device for city traffic surveillance

Editor / Provider: ALCON | Updated: 10/1/2014 | Article type: Infrastructure

Requirements and challenges:
Traffic jam problem is quite serious during rush hours in Bangkok. The police department would like to have surveillance deployment on the streets and corners to monitor traffic load. However, to deploy wired installation in crowded downtown area would be quite difficult. Eventually, the police department of Bangkok adopted ALCON's 2.4GHz wireless outdoor communication system.

 

Solution:
ALCON ASU-24005g, the 2.4GHz wireless outdoor bridge system, helps to send camera images back to central management center. A total of 8 sets cameras are located in different site from distance of 1-to-3 km respectively. ALCON distributor helped to integrated 8 sets of ASU-24005g with camera at every fixed site, and used 2 units of AAP-2410gMS with omni-directional antenna to receive surveillance signal from 8 of ASU-24005g.

To monitor traffic load, the MIS person just needs to sit in from of the screen and check with the real-time images that ASU-24005g sent back. While ASU-24005g and AAP-2410gMS use IP68 certified outdoor enclosure, the project owner doesn't need to worry whether rain will enter into the outdoor bridge unit influencing transmission quality or rusting materials and components inside. Stable performance and product reliability are the most important they concern and they got the perfect answer from ALCON's solution.

Performance feedback:
“As we are the distributor of MOTO/Canopy outdoor communication system, we met ALCON and were impressed by their cost-effective solution and stable performance. From 2007, we started to distribute ALCON outdoor AP/Bridge system to work with analogue and IP camera for wireless surveillance project in Bangkok. This project has been installed for more than 5 years and still working fine now. We are pretty satisfied with ALCON products in such stable and reliable performance.” said the Managing Director.
