RADWIN, a provider of broadband wireless solutions, says the Central Florida Electric Cooperative Inc. (CFEC) deployed two of the company’s point-to-point, or multipoint solutions, that can transmit live video for monitoring and control of the co-op’s critical assets.
The RADWIN 2000 point-to-point system and the RADWIN 5000 point-to-multipoint solutions have been deployed by the CFEC, RADWIN says. The cooperative chose RADWIN's systems to upgrade its communication network and link substations to district offices with high-capacity connectivity, the firm said.
RADWIN’s solutions are also used for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and to transmit live video from CFEC substations to the central headquarters for monitoring and control of critical assets. RADWIN’s portfolio of point-to-point and point-to-multipoint solutions incorporate advanced multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) and orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing(OFDM) technologies.
RADWIN says its systems are easy to install and maintain, can help watch over the co-op’s systems which are built to withstand extreme weather and operate in non line-of-sight and high interference conditions, the firm says. s. In addition, the RADWIN solutions have made it possible for the CFEC to run multiple bandwidth-heavy applications on the network and to monitor substations from afar via 24X7 real-time video surveillance transmission, the cooperative says.
