RADWIN 5000 Point-to-MultiPoint Solution Deployed by Traffic Dept. in Ireland for Video Surveillance
RADWIN 5000 Delivers Traffic Information & High-Definition CCTV Images to Traffic Center in Kildare County
Tel Aviv, Israel, 2011 – RADWIN (www.radwin.com), the global provider of Backhaul and Broadband Wireless Solutions, today announced that the Kildare County Council in Ireland deployed the RADWIN 5000 high capacity Point-to-MultiPoint solutions (HPMP). RADWIN 5000 HPMP deliver traffic information and CCTV images from video cameras installed throughout the county back to the Kildare Traffic Management Center. Bandwidth Telecommunications Limited, a leading SI in Ireland, was in charge of project design and implementation.
The Radwin 2000B was just recently released and is already flying off the shelf. This is the first true carrier grade wireless bridge to hit this price point. The Radwin 2000B operates in the entire 5GHz band, uses MIMO technology, provides low latency and comes in a convenient form factor. The 2000B comes with both an integrated 15 dbi antenna as well as 2 x N-Connectors in case of a longer path.
On May 1st the first shipment of the new Radwin 5000 PTMP product will start shipping from their New Jersey warehouse. At first glance the Radwin 5000 is similar your typical wifi base station but on closer inspection the Radwin 5000 is the first of its kind.
Standard wifi base stations have a limited capacity delivered in a first come first served basis. Subscribers connecting take as much or as little of that capacity as they want. Throughput is not guaranteed per subscriber unit which means that if your neighbor decides to start downloading torrents from the internet and takes up 90% of the capacity of the base station you and the rest of the subscribers will have to contend for the remaining 10%. This might be OK in broadband service networks where you have usage cycles and over subscription but in a constant streaming applications such as IP video surveillance where dedicated bandwidth is needed at all times it doesn’t.

Radwin manufacturers carrier grade sub 6GHz point to point and now point to multi-point wireless bridges.
The Radwin product line consists of the following series.
- Radwin 2000L (50 Mbps Full Duplex,2.4 GHz, 5Ghz, 3.65 GHz, 4.9 Ghz)
- Radiwn 2000C (100 Mbps Full Duplex, 2.4 GHz, 5Ghz, 3.65 GHz, 4.9 Ghz)
- WinLink 1000 (max 36Mbps full duplex, 2.4, 2.5, 5.8 Ghz)
- Radwin 5000 Series (5 Ghz point to multi-point) (coming soon)
More and more 3.65 GHz wireless products are rolling out of manufacturing and R&D and are hitting the shelves. Here is a highlight of three 3.65 GHz point to point solutions both released or soon to be released.
Radwin RW-2030-0100 : 3.65 GHz carrier grade 200 Mbps point to point bridge. This device is an outdoor unit (ODU) with an integrated 21 dbi antenna and the ability to send TDM (T1) over the wireless link. The Radwin has adaptive modulation and spectrum analyzer built in and is built tough for demanding applications.
Ubiquiti has 2 solutions here, the PowerBridgeM365 and the RocketM365 with additional dishes. Unlike the Radwin these products are based on traditional Atheros WIFI chipsets which greatly reduce the cost of the items but do come with additional overhead and quirks that Radwin’s proprietary protocols can avoid.
PowerBridgeM365 : To be released Q1 of 2011 the PowerBridge M365 is Ubiquiti’s attempt at a carrier grade bridge. Not much (actually no) info is really given about the PowerBridgeM365 but, from what we are told, the current PowerBridgeM5 offers a nice mix of price & performance. So we are interested in seeing what the new M365 can do.
RocketM365 + RocketDish-3G26 : The Rocket is a very versatile device. You can select between AP and Bridge mode and comes with 2 x RP-SMA connectors that will allow you to connect it to either a sector (AP) or dish antennas (bridge).
