Homeland Defense Departments, Security Agencies, Governments and other organizations require higher levels of perimeter security today than ever before. Two key elements of modern security strategy include video surveillance and extension of wireless data access for security personnel. But extending these services along borders, perimeters, in wilderness areas or congested downtowns often requires many (node-to-node)
These demanding military and security wireless applications require secure, high-speed connectivity for data, video and voice. Patented and patent-pending technology utilizes multiple backhaul radios to provide near-instantaneous network set-up, node mobility at
high speeds, high bandwidth, and minimal delay and jitter.
Homeland Security Deployment
along Arizona-Mexico border
Border and perimeter security environments demand high performance over extended distances for date, voice and surveillance and tactical video. In most cases, wired or fiber connectivity is unavailable, so the network must be delivered wireless over many hops (node to node connections). Meshdynamics' patented and patent pending third-generation wireless mesh architecture delivers bandwidth with minimal delay and jitter over many hops. In addition, the Meshdynamics network functions as a
Layer 2 switch
infrastructure, transparent to a wide variety of sensor and video streams.
In a successful long-term pilot network across the
Arizona-Mexico border, Meshdynamics nodes are providing
connectivity for a variety of security applications to
mobile border security forces. Node-to-node distances reach
up to 14 miles. News
Field Proven Superiority
Meshdynamics products are especially well suited for
large scale deployments where voice and video
quality is paramount. Competing products failed in
these challenging video surveillance applications,
due to unacceptable latency and jitter as
deployments scaled (e.g. more hops, more cameras,
Based on competitive bids, the
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) selected Meshdynamics mesh nodes to provide
remote video surveillance for stationary and vehicle mounted
cameras along the US national border. UK, Israeli and
Canadian defense agencies also selected Meshdynamics for wireless video
IP cameras, connected to the MD4250
transmitting high resolution real time video over the mesh
network to the base station video monitors.
Other cited key advantages:
Managed Latency and Jitter:
mesh networking products perform poorly in multi-hop
(node-to-node relay) environments. Meshdynamics'
patented low latency multiple radio wireless mesh technology
preserves high performance [over multiple hops] that's been
available only in wired networks until today. US Defense
validated these claims
Free Real Time Video Transmissions. Meshdynamics Network
Management System (NMS) provides users the ability to ensure
real time streams (e.g. VOIP and Video) are handled
differently along the mesh.
The result: glitch free real-time video over mesh networks. Jitter
