Denver's Public Works Traffic Operations has selected Mountain Secure Systems’ (MSS)—a supplier of rugged electronics and outdoor wireless network solutions—Summit Series wireless network radios for a new video surveillance network.
Denver is acquiring 50 of the Summit wireless network radios for the network which is aimed at improving traffic control at various intersections throughout the city, according to MSS.
The Summit radios provide coverage for point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and wireless mesh networks in the 2.4 and 5.8 GHz unlicensed frequency bands, as well as the licensed 4.9 GHz public safety band, MSS says. Product options include FIPS 140-2 validation, which provides highly secure, end-to-end encryption, as well as 802.11n MIMO technology, which offers connection speeds up to 150 Mbps, the company says.
In addition, Summit’s rugged hardware is built to last in the harshest environments, and is designed for use in “virtually any outdoor video, voice or data application,” MSS says. Summit’s “intuitive software” makes it easy to install, configure and manage an entire network from any location with Internet access, the company says.
“Our Summit wireless network radios are designed to deliver the best cost-to-performance ratio in the wireless network industry,” said Ken Dickson, MSS’ general manager. “We are honored to support the City of Denver with this important initiative.”
