Strix Systems Introduces Wireless Mesh Video Surveillance System

Strix Systems and Dotworkz Systems announce a high-performance Integrated Wireless Video Surveillance System (IWVS) designed for optimal IP video surveillance over wireless/WiFi mesh networks.

Strix Systems' hardware and software have been integrated into the Dotworkz D2 weatherized enclosures for IP-enabled Intelligent Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras. High throughput and low latency are achieved via Strix intelligent radio algorithms that dynamically adjust to the environment. Maximum power enables the greatest signal strength, receive sensitivity and optimal channel selection for the most robust wireless connectivity and highest achievable throughput.

The IWVS includes high power 802.11a and also supports high-power 4.9 GHz for public safety deployments. 802.11a and 4.9 GHz radios provide secured/encrypted WiFi access to the wireless mesh network. IP Video is switched at high-speed between radios and the IP camera connected Ethernet port while Strix Virtual/One and Strix Priority/One provide packet prioritization and Quality of Service throughout the network. Layer 2 Network Address Translation (NAT) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) enable self-configuration which is fully manageable by Strix Systems Manager/One and a compliment of iSNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) managers. Video and recording management is enabled by the IP video surveillance camera and/or client-server application of choice. The IWVS optionally includes an 802.11g radio for localized wireless client/user access supporting voice, video and data applications.
