How to reduce installation time and save money on your surveillance solution with LigoWave.

With LigoWave’s point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless devices, you can elevate the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your access control, time & attendance and/or surveillance solution; improving on reliability and reducing installation time and cost. The LigoWave DLB and DLB ac ranges are the ideal PtP/PtMP solution to support any type of surveillance installation. Not only are these high-performing units available at the most competitive prices in the industry, but they also have the potential to bring down the overall cost of your surveillance installation by eliminating reliance on third party networks, reducing installation time and taking away the need for cables. Below is a deployment scenario that visually represents how LigoWave’s PtP and PtMP devices can be used to complete and enhance a security and attendance monitoring solution:   LigoWave DLB The LigoWave DLB units are able to push up to 170 Mbps on the 5 GHz frequency band. This range has its own unique iPoll 2 proprietary data transmission protocol that minimizes noise and increases stability. This solution is best suited for access control and time & attendance applications due to low spectrum utilization in order to maximize on reliability and stability.   LigoWave DLB ac The DLB ac range provides an ideal solution for surveillance installations. The CPEs  and base stations within this range are able to achieve up to 500 Mbps on the 5 GHz band as a result of its powerful hardware platform  with an 802.11ac based radio and it’s dedicated iPoll 3 proprietary data transmission protocol. By using a wider spectrum within the 5 GHz frequency band, a higher level of throughput is achieved, making...
Providing reliable and durable wireless connectivity in the mining sector

Providing reliable and durable wireless connectivity in the mining sector

There is increasing pressure on the mining industry to maintain or even improve productivity in the face of tough economic conditions. Added to this a regulatory need for enhanced safety of personnel and the desire for improved operational efficiency. These factors are the impetus behind the use of smart solutions that are underpinned by the adoption of IT and automation technology.   According to RADWIN Southern Africa sales director Nicholas Ehrke, a number of mining companies have already introduced remote-controlled machinery to their fleets, with monitoring equipment performing regular checks on the health status of this equipment. Along with this increased remote automation comes the need for higher bandwidth connectivity to support the video, data and VoIP applications.   MiRO, a local distributor for RADWIN solutions, believes that the mining space will increasingly benefit from the deployment of RADWIN’s PtP (Point-to-Point) and PtMP (Point-to-Multipoint) technology. There are various deployment scenarios, dependent on whether the solution is defined as a nomadic or a mobility option, as well as whether it will be used above or below the ground.   “We recommend using the RADWIN FiberinMotion® Mobility, with a range in excess of 10 km, for mobility applications and the RADWIN JET Smart Beamforming Point-to-Multipoint for nomadic and PtMP applications, for distances of up to 40 km. One of the big differentiators for these solutions is that they are able to seamlessly perform handover between sectors with ultra-low latency and jitter, combined with high capacity throughput of up to 250 Mbps per subscriber for the mobility applications ,” says Marco de Ru, CTO at MiRO.   The unique air interface of...
